Mel's Diner is the Best in Texas

One of the best chicken fried steaks in the state can be found at Mel's Diner in Wheeler, TX. Texas Monthly thinks so too.

Mel's is on the list of the" 40 Best Small Town Cafes in Texas". The diner has been around for 12 years and is the place in Wheeler. The saying around there is "Where friends come to meet and eat. we got a chance to eat that famous chicken fry and mashed potatoes.

It is the best ever.

The desserts are world famous. We had the Coconut Cream and the Chocolate, both are out of this world. 39 eaters traveled more than 24,000 miles and visited 350 cafes. They used the guideline of 25,000 residents. The cool thing about Mel's is that it is like going to your friends or families place. Everyone there is" hi how are ya folks."

Every Friday morning the Wheeler Mustang football team and coaches have breakfast together at Mel's.

Mel's is owned by Mel Ray and Susan Coate. They told us that its been a long road and they couldn't have been successful without their customers.

Good job Mel's!! Ya'll are the best!
