From Contemporary to 50’s Gospel and Country, you’ll hear your favorite sung at Mel’s Hard Luck Diner at the Grand Village Shops in Branson, Mo. Meet Branson’s most talented waitstaff who sing to you, while serving your favorite American Cuisine. Mel and his crew have been serving up delicious, ooey gooey cheeseburgers, homemade onion rings, and the biggest sundaes you have ever seen for 10 years, but the restaurant has been in business for over 21 years. It was originally owned by Silver Dollar City, but Mel bought it in 2004 and revitalized it into a mainstay in Branson. When you visit Mel’s Hard Luck Diner, you are sure to find something to tempt your taste buds in their massive 13 page menu. Mel recommends the Reuben made fresh with real Swiss cheese, their traditional style corned beef, sauerkraut, and a secret sauce sure to knock your socks off.
Folks are especially intrigued by Mel’s Peanut Butter, Banana, Raisin, and Caramel Concoction Sandwich made with chunky peanut butter on slices of toasted bread topped with sliced bananas, raisins, caramel syrup, and a sprinkle of brown sugar! It’s served with fries and caramel for dipping and is sure to satisfy your sultry sweet and salty cravings. And, don’t forget the gift shop on your way out. You’ll find gifts and collectible souvenirs to bring home and in case you crave a snack to take on the road, the shop has unique sodas and candies to take with you.
