Local atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Great selection of awesome burgers!!! Some interesting appetizers. We were there at 6 p.m. on Saturday... no wait.

My daughter and husband go here regularly and we visited with them on Jan. 11th. Wonderful people who work there very friendly and the food was delicious! Keep up the good work, love to visit again and send others. Love supporting family owned businesses.

This place is on point. EASILY the best burgers I have had in Gainesville, the chains are no match. Not only the burgers though! The Philly cheese chips will have you salivating, and the "Irish car-bomb" cheesecake was indulgent. I've passed Mel's downtown for a long time, but just recently tried them. I cannot fathom why they aren't packed from open to close. You'll leave not with the question of "if" you'll be back, but "When?!"

This place is amazing. Several of us from work visit Sweet Mel's weekly for the wing bar. Their burgers are THE BEST in town.

The burgers are by far the best burgers in town if you can get past the extremely long wait time and slow service. We keep bringing friends and family from out of town to eat here because of the wide variety of burgers but the most recent time we went will probably be the straw that broke the camels back. We went in prepared to wait over an hour to get burgers for 6 people and decided we would order chips and salsa to snack on during the wait. We asked 3 times for the chips and still did not get them by the time the burgers came out an hour later. We were one of only two tables eating at the time so not sure what the hold up was. Someone mentioned in another review that they are surprised it isn't always packed because of how good the food is but I can guarantee it is because of how long it takes for the food to come out.
