For some of you, Mel’s Diner in Pigeon Forge is a step back in time to when you were a kid, hanging out after school at the local diner, sipping sodas, eating a banana split, and listening to classic tunes from the Beatles, Elvis, and The Temptations. You’ll find that not much has changed here.
Located just off the Parkway on Wears Valley Road, Mel’s Diner is wonderful place to grab a bite to eat in the heart of Pigeon Forge. Start off with Mel’s breakfast which features eggs any way you like them and whatever side your stomach craves – sausage, ham, steak. They also offer a number of delicious omelets, french toast, pancakes, and as many combinations as you could imagine. If you want an omelet, pancakes, and biscuits and gravy, order it up! At Mel’s, they’ll do whatever it takes to please their customers.
If you’re planning on sticking around for lunch and dinner, they feature some of the best burgers and hot dogs around. From Cajun to chili to mushroom burgers and everything in between, their burgers are juicy and made to your specifications. One the hot dog front, Wayne’s Foot Long Doggie is just what the name implies – a foot long hot dog covered in chili, slaw, cheese, whatever toppings you prefer. If it’s a sandwich that you prefer, just not a burger, try Pam’s Patty Melt, or Matt’s Meatloaf Sandwich, they’re mouth-watering.
For dinner, Smoky’s Pulled Pork BBQ and Miss Stella’s Country Fried Steak are two personal favorites. You really can’t go wrong with either. You really can’t go wrong with Sudlows Homemade Meatloaf either. Each dinner comes with your choice of two sides and Texas toast.
Now that you’ve polished off lunch and dinner, don’t leave without ordering one of Mel’s famous sundaes from the desert menu. Between the milkshakes, cobblers, and various cakes, it can be a pretty tough decision. Just know that whichever you choose, it’ll be oh-so good! Check out Mel’s Diner next time you’re in Pigeon Forge and let us know how it was.
