Creating Art with Lights:

The Original Mels Diner (also called Mels Drive-In) first opened in San Francisco in the year 1947. Now regarded as a pioneer in the early fast food restaurant industry Mels grew to become a leader with close to 40 locations. Often associated with the popular movie "American Graffiti" Mel’s Drive-Ins became a symbol of American culture reaching its height in popularity during the 1960s. In the 1973 film you might remember the neon sign at the gang’s favorite hangout featured prominently in the background. Is Mel's Diner still open? You might be interested to know that in addition to the Original Mels restaurant there are still 22 other Mels restaurants throughout Northern California and Nevada.
