Melrose Diner is a 24 hour establishment in Boystown, making for the perfect antidote for your late night ailments (ahem). Somehow, chili fries are never quite as good for lunch.

      Chili Fries
      The best antidote to head off a hangover. There's nothing like chili fries coupled with a juicy burger to heal what will ail you in the morning. Well at least the food here will help soften the blow.

      Although you can easily find better places to eat in Boystown and Chicago, this is a great place for healthy portions of greasy spoon favorites. They don't pretend to be a great restaurant and have a loyal following. My partner and I love their omelletes and I am particularly fond of their skillet with jalapenos and chorizo mixed with eggs, hashbrowns, green peppers, etc....I think it's called the Mexican Skillet...the service is awesome and fast too! We've driven from the far far west burbs for their food!

      Good at 3am- not so much other times
      If you need food after going out, go here. But every time I've been here during the day, I couldn't help thinking that I should have gone to one of the many better restaurants nearby. Melrose serves a purpose, but there are many better choices.

      24 hours!
      This diner is amazing! The service here is the best and take care of you if you had a little too many. Been here drunk at 3am and sober at 4pm and the food still tastes good. Try the chilli!
