When I go on vacation not only want to know where I’m going to stay and what I’m going to do, I also want to know what I’m going to eat! Food is one of the things I most look forward to. I love yummy food, but I also love a place that is also an experience, and Mel’s Hard Luck Diner in Branson, MO has both! This is a place you don’t want to miss when you’re in the area. After we did the Ride the Ducks tour we came to Mel’s.
What is unique about Mel’s? The servers are all singers and take turns entertaining the crowd! Our server was Matt Kester!
On the tables are your servers CDs that they will happily sign for you if you’d like to purchase them.
Matt recommended the Cheese Steak. I had no idea what it was when I ordered it. In fact, I wondered if I would like it, but I try to order the recommended, most popular items when I try a new restaurant. Jason and I split the sandwich and oh my goodness was it good! I mean it was that close your eyes and enjoy every bite kind of yummy. When you go to Mel’s you HAVE to try it. The actual name of it is Grand Village Cheesesteak.
The kids shared spaghetti than Jason told me was really good too! 🙂
And then, oh my goodness, if it was just to get that rootbeer float it’d be worth the drive all the way to Branson!
Mel’s Hard Luck Diner has great entertainment in this very personal way and fantastic food at reasonable prices. What’s not to love?

Oh my, that looks like a travesty!! A cheesesteak is a Philly sandwich. It’s shaved roast beef that cooked up on a grill, and put on a chewy roll. Traditional toppings include cheese, carmelized onions, or peppers. My choice is “Wiz, wit” which means cheese wiz with onions.
If you ever see “philly cheesesteak” on a sandwich menu, ask them if they are from Philly before you do anything crazy like order that messy sandwich!!!
@Chris from Philly, Ha ha! Your comment cracked me up. I confess I’ve never been to Philly. When I do, I will have to try your Philly sandwich. But in any case, this sandwich I had as all kiiiiiinds of good! 🙂
