When in Branson Missouri you must visit Mel's Hard Luck Diner. We stopped in for lunch and loved the 1950s decor. The servers walk around singing and will sit right down with you.
Most of the staff have CDs for sale, and they will even autograph them for you. Staff will go out of their way to pose while they are singing, if you have a camera handy. Our server was Karen Richardson and she was amazing. Several American Idol contestants have sung there as well. Most of the servers also perform in the various shows in Branson hoping to be discovered.


Here's a quick video

  9. Thanks for this. My mother loved this diner so much that she and I went three times in a four day trip. She's been gone for almost 8 years (hard to believe), so I'm thrilled to know that the diner is still there and still making people smile.

  12. I wonder if people ever have a hard time ordering because they don't want to interrupt their server in mid-song! ;)
