Diners are one of the last vestiges of a bygone era, along with cruising around town in cool socks and patiently explaining love to rebellious teenage poodles. Enjoy the tastiest form of nostalgia with todays Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of classic diner fare and drinks at Original Mels in Auburn.
Resurrected from the classic carhop chain from the '50s and '60s, Original Mels transports temporary time travelers back to a fun and doo-wop-filled dinner at the diner. For a boss burger, Mels boasts a bevy of bovine options, all sizzled with a 1/3 pound of Angus beef and Mels's special seasoning. The crowd-swooning Big Bopper burger hits the stage wearing bacon strips, onion rings, cheddar cheese, and an encore of barbecue sauce ($8.99). The Reuben promises a more thinly sliced sandwich sensation on grilled corn rye ($8.39). Though vegetarians hadnt yet been invented in the '50s, Mels demonstrates its futuristic foresight with a veggie sandwich, stacked with avocado, red onion, lettuce, tomato, and muenster cheese, swinging on a wholesome platform of seven-grain bread ($7.29).
Original Mels sustains the soul of the '50s with its vintage vibe, complete with Rock-Ola jukebox tunes and walls plastered with American Graffiti posters. As no '50s diner is complete without a soda fountain, customers can choose a malt-can-accompanied milkshake from the traditional trifecta of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry, or go deluxe with a mocha java, fresh banana, or pineapple blend ($4.49; malts are optional).
