Mel’s Hard Luck Diner – Top Branson Restaurants

When moving to a new place, one of the most difficult “chores” is finding restaurants to eat at that your entire family can enjoy—places that aren’t too expensive, too crowded, and that don’t serve meals that taste like cardboard! Fortunately, when you move to Branson, we can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be served a bad meal. But we are a tourist town, and if you don’t know the ins and outs of dining, you may feel you are stuck cooking dinner at home every night of the year. Lucky for you, however, you chose Sunset Realty Services for your real estate needs, and we are about to be your very knowledgeable neighbors. We recommend places like Mel’s Hard Luck Diner!

Located at 2800 West Highway 76

Mel’s has been a Branson must-eat for 20 years, and while it is a popular tourist destination, we can guide you to the low volume times. Featuring singing waiters who entertain you as they refill your drinks, this is an awesome place to bring visiting out of town relatives. Or if you are planning to purchase your home for rental purposes, your potential tenants will thank you for recommending this musical eatery!

Diners are Synonymous with Delicious!

And Mel’s is no exception, offering typical diner food alongside the not so typical. The names of the dishes served here are almost as entertaining as the singing waiters! Start with the Jimmy Cracked Corn Chowder, move on to the Smoke Gets in Your Eyes Burger, and finish with the Rock Around the Chocolate Fudge Brownie. We’ve yet to have a meal that doesn’t satisfy all our senses! Their Orange Blossom Blue Plate Specials are dishes you should not pass up. For a special taste of the Ozarks, you MUST sample the Love Me Tender Steak!
