Although you do have to find parking and wait for a seat at this ultra-popular diner, Mel's Drive-In on Lombard is the epitome of an old school place for burgers and shakes. Hamburgers and fries, in several different variations, are served up in huge portions. A Blue Plate Special is always available and there are plenty of fattening appetizers (fried cheese sticks, onion rings) and sinful desserts (bread pudding with whipped cream). The service is sprightly and friendly. Visit website for more information.
