1. Mel’s Drive-In
In 1947, Mel Weiss and Harold Dobbs opened the first Mels drive-in restaurant in San Francisco and was a hit all over the city. After 1976 unfortunately Mels hit hard times and closed. Then in 1985 Steven Weiss and Donald Wagstaff decided to bring Mels back into San Francisco and now have expanded to Southern California. Mels strives to keep the spirit of the classic American diner and home style cooking alive in well. They have the classic burgers and fries and home style cooking that even your grandparents will love.
