With indoor and outdoor dining banned under the current stay-at-home order, it’s nice to know you can still have a meal away from home. Mel’s Drive-In in San Francisco is still offering its retro carhop service since technically it’s “delivery” to your car, not outdoor dining.

Mel’s Drive-In, the quintessential 1950s-style American restaurant is going back in time for the sake of social-distancing. Just like old times, drive up, park the car, have a carhop server take your order, and enjoy it from the safety of your car. Listen to music, enjoy the neon, and just have fun. Mel’s Drive-in strives to keep the spirit of the classic American diner and home-style cooking alive and well.
