Mel’s Drive-In as seen on TV! Yes, you may recognize this restaurant from “The Surreal Life” (at least my date did). I had been here a few years ago and met Scarlett Johansson and saw Lindsay Lohan sitting in her car in the parking lot. I thought I’d try my luck again after seeing Mylin at the Knitting Factory…
I believe this was my date’s Chocolate Milk Shake - thick and old-fashioned, featuring McGoo’s ice cream.
My date also ordered Hot Wings with a side of ranch. He said it wasn’t hot at all.
My late night choice was Mel’s Turkey Burger. It comes with lettuce, tomato, and pickles, but I just ate mine with mayo and pickles. It was a little dry, but the fries weren’t so bad. I still think the Studio Diner’s Grip Burger with the stand-in turkey is one of the juiciest…
What’s nice about this place is it’s open 24 hours! So you can come here no matter how late a night you’re having.
