If you prefer your American-style diners straight from the set of Grease, the Tommy Mel’s is the diner for you! Waiters and waitresses are dressed in 50’s style and a group of a cappella singers go from table to table, serenading diners with 50’s classics. Whilst there isn’t a huge vegetarian variety on the menu, there is a veggie burger, named, creatively enough; ‘VEGGIE’. You can personalise your burger too, adding cheddar, onions, cream cheese and walnuts, ‘devil’ sauce… They have plenty of extra toppings.
The VEGGIE is a burger made from vegetables, topped with lettuce and tomato and a side of light mayonnaise. Unlike at Home Burger Bar, fries are ordered separately as ‘sides’ and don’t come with the burger. You can, however, choose between regular fries and fries with blue cheese, and portions are substantial.
Other vegetarian side orders available at Tommy Mel’s include onion rings and coleslaw, as well as the ‘Green Fresh Salad’. Saying that, if you’re going to an American diner for classic diner food, you’re probably not going to be so interested in the last option…
There are 7, soon to be 10, branches in Madrid, our favourite one being located on Calle Hortaleza, just of Gran Vía.
