Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of American fare and drinks at Mel's Classic Diner in Pigeon Forge.
Mel’s Classic Diner's staff curates a menu of nostalgic American comfort fare, from fluffy pancakes and juicy burgers to chili-smothered hot dogs. Early birds can fuel up with breakfast entrees such as Ms. Nita's Mo for Your Money special, piled high with two eggs, a choice of meat, hash browns, and biscuits and gravy ($8.49). A lengthy list of lunch- and dinner-focused entrees, like either having to take the SATs or stay home and study for an appearance on The Price Is Right, sharpens the mind by forcing a decision between the mushrooms, chili, and bacon of a Mikey's Works cheeseburger ($8.99) or the sauerkraut, corn beef, swiss cheese, and rye bread of a Mel’s Famous Reuben ($7.99).
Patrons can also silence the echoes reverberating in hollow tummies by imbibing a heftier meal, such as a Hungry Eddie's hamburger steak crowned with sautéed onions and gravy ($7.99). Or diners can taste the pure, 24-karat Americana of the Wayne’s footlong hot dog ($5.49), which prevents the need to tote along a ruler for measuring the restaurant's drapes. The kitchen team rounds out the menu with cheesy, crumbly appetizers, Blue Bunny milk shakes, and kid-friendly entrees.
