If you are looking for homestyle Southern comfort food, Mel’s is the place to go. Fried-to-order chicken, ribs, pork chops, country ham, greens, mashed potatoes, and much more served up by Mel himself. The food is fresh, delicious and comes with some of the friendliest service in town. Make sure to leave room for dessert – the sweet potato pie and grilled donut are both great options.

Join the crowds at lunch, or head over for a quick, inexpensive dinner after class. Make sure to go hungry – you will get plenty of food.
