The burger masters at Sweet Mel’s cook up meals from fresh, grilled-to-order Angus patties topped with an eclectic array of toppings. Meals begin with a shared appetizer, as guests nosh on made-to-order guacamole or crispy battered mac ‘n’ cheese wedges. Then pay homage to morning with a Rise-N-Shine burger topped with bacon, a fried egg, hash browns, and a sautéed alarm clock, or nibble the Old Chicago burger that pairs charred beef with grilled sausage and sauerkraut, washing it down with draft-poured suds.
Within the cozy red and black bar, guests mount dinnertime conversations at the window side tables or nab a stool to ogle the TVs hanging on exposed brick over the long wood bar. A wide array of events put the corner stage to use, with spoken word poetry on Mondays, cover-less live music every Friday and Saturday, and Shakespearean-style readings of the menu specials every day.
Sweet Mel's combines food and drink in a way not seen since the invention of the banana milkshake, offering a lengthy lineup of burgers, beers, and mixed drinks inside a red and black bar. From their perches on exposed-brick walls, hungry TVs can only dream of sampling what they see—pork chops, deep-fried Oreos, beef patties sandwiched between funnel cakes (The Sweet Mel), and foot-long hoagies packed with slabs of ground beef and bacon (The Boss). To wash down big meals, bartenders pour a steady stream of martinis and specialty cocktails, and fill 100-ounce towers with beer, the only beverage that does not immediately curdle when poured into a tower. A wide array of events puts the corner stage to use, with $1 drafts on Mondays, trivia on Tuesday, and Shakespearean-style readings of the menu specials every day.
