Some staff are better than others, certain times of the day the food quality is better than at others... but overall it is a fine establishment that is a nice escape from the day to day grind of the modern world for quality food and good times even if it takes a little drive to get there. Worth checking out if you have never been. --["Users/WesOne"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Original Mel's Dinerhttp://daviswiki.org/Original_Mel%27s_Diner2010-02-10 15:07:27bearComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Original Mel's Diner<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 30: </td> <td> Line 30: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-02-10 14:07:27'' [[nbsp]] I think this place is kind of gross, honestly.
