Mel's Drive-In Description
Outfitted in a retro '50s theme, and decorated with photo stills from "American Graffiti" (filmed just north in San Rafael and Petaluma by local filmmaker George Lucas), this classic diner offers a great kids' menu and old-fashioned soda fountain. Kids' meals are served in cute cardboard cars.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Meals for this age group are served in a little cardboard car. We'll go out on a limb here and predict this will go over well.
- Prices are up there. Don't be surprised that the menu isn't as cheap as your own local diner's -- you're paying for atmosphere as well as food.
