A new Mel’s Diner location is coming to Antioch, and is scheduled to open by the end of the year. It will be in the former location of the short-lived Hurricane Grill & Wings, which was Uno Chicago Grill on Lone Tree Way in the Williamson Ranch Plaza, near Staples and Walmart.
The closest Mel’s Diner location is at the Streets of Brentwood. The new restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The owners are not sure, yet if it will be open 24 hours.
Mel’s has a long history in California, with the first opened in San Francisco in 1947 by Mel Weiss and Harold Dobbs. That location was featured in the movie American Graffiti. For more information about Mel’s including their menu, visit www.originalmelsdiner.com.
