1950s style hamburgers

Tommy Mel’s is another of those quality hamburger restaurants that are showing up across Madrid. It’s very well located, next to several other gourmet burger joints. Tommy Mel’s is opened to franchising and they already have another restaurant in Plenilunio, another in Xanadú and another in León.

The aesthetics of the 1950s American diner is pulled off quite well, from the decoration to the tables and chairs, to the stools, to the short red aprons the waitresses wear. They don’t accept reservations, so you should show up ready to practice a little patience in order to get a table, seeing as it has become quite a popular place.

The hamburgers are made of beef. They’re ground daily. They print all the ingredients that they put into their hamburgers on their hand-drawn napkins, which mention that it’s ox meat. But, you can tell by the flavor and, according to their website, the meat is made from 100% beef, nothing else. But, in any case, it’s very juicy and tender.

There are two sizes, 160 grams and, for a little more, 250 grams. Although the small size is thin, it is cooked to perfection. The bun is handmade and made specifically for Tommy Mel’s. It’s bland on the outside and very soft, but it holds in the hamburger’s juices, and there are plenty.
The bun size is also unique, so it’s perfect to encase 160 grams of meat, but it’s a little small for the 250 gram burger. Many of the hamburgers have a special sauce that, in the end, isn’t anything more than a Thousand Island-style dressing with pickles, but is very, very good.

The most expensive hamburger is the double (two 160 gram meat patties) for less than 10 Euros, which isn’t bad at all considering the amount of food. However, the hamburgers don’t come with French fries. The good thing is that if you ask for fries, they’ll come with an option of melted cheese, bacon with blue cheese or covered in chili. The bowl that they give you is of considerable size.

They also serve milkshakes, some classics and other premium. Although they increase your bill, they’re are well worth it because it’s not too often you stumble across Mars or Nestle Crunch milkshakes. If you fancy something even more powerful, they have cocktails. Soft drinks come from the fountain, not from the bottle :).

Of course, the typical starters and desserts are on the menu, like a massive chocolate cake. On special occasions like Halloween, in addition to decorating the place specifically for the day, they usually include limited edition plates of starters, main courses, drinks and desserts.
All in all, it’s a very recommendable place with very tasty hamburgers and with a well achieved aesthetic.

The diner back to the future

I love the look of Tommy Mel's. It seems that one had gone back fifty years in time. It's like leaving diners in the films Grease and Back to the Future: retro crockery, waitresses with bubblegum pink minidresses and Converse sneakers, a rockolla, etc ... Regarding the food: hamburgers several in two sizes (160 and 250 grams respectively) in an artisan bread that is made especially for these restaurants. Warning: burgers (of around seven or eight euros) are juicy and tender, taste good, but are no chips or salad, but Fries, Cheese and Bacon are death. For dessert, brownies, smoothies and even cocktails with and without alcohol. 100% recommended for fans of retro restaurants, although they do not support reservations by phone.

El diner de regreso al futuro

Me encanta la estética de Tommy Mel's. Parece que uno hubiera retrocedido cincuenta años en el tiempo. Es como los diners que salen en las películas Grease o Regreso al Futuro: vajilla retro, camareras con minivestidos color rosa chicle y zapatillas Converse, una rockolla, etc...
Respecto a la comida: hamburguesas varias en dos tamaños (160 y 250 gramos respectivamente) en un pan artesanal que se hace especialmente para estos restaurantes.
Advertencia: las hamburguesas (que rondan los siete u ocho euros) son jugosas y tiernas, saben bien, pero vienen sin patatas fritas ni ensalada, pero las Fries, Cheese and Bacon están de muerte.
De postre, brownies, batidos e incluso cocktails con y sin alcohol.
Recomendable 100% para amantes de los restaurantes retro, a pesar de que no admiten reservas por teléfono.

I went with the idea that I would find another version of Peggy Sue's, but I read around here that was bigger (not hard), but the roll seemed to be the same, the food very style ... So we get there without having reservations. Sure, a Saturday in August in Madrid ... There are many people out there are usually anywhere and often ridiculous book ... But at the door we find the reality of Tommy Mel's. It's a pretty big place and impressed by the amount of people there (both seated at tables, and standing at the door or at the bar waiting). A girl on the door says the name you and invites you to go to the bar for a drink while waiting to be called to sit by the microphone Elvis. But of course, get to the bar is almost impossible on the amount of people there and the wait, especially if you're hungry, it makes you quite long. I came to mind the scene from American films of the '60s, in which the waiters, dressed in period clothing, running up and down sweating and exhausted, they clean the tables that do not even see and cooks have face wanting to die. While the food is worth it, is not very expensive (if you do not ask much, if you go crazy ...), our bill did not reach the 17 euros for a basket of potatoes with bacon and cheese, two burgers (which are huge compared ridiculous to Peggy's hamburgers) and drink. Not delicatessen, or anything, but do not know to plastic, as expected. Still, I ran out to try the desserts, do not do like me and let pre-dinner reeds for another day.


Fui con la idea de que iba a encontrarme otra versión del Peggy Sue´s, aunque leí por aquí que era más grande (tampoco es difícil), pero el rollo parecía ser el mismo, la comida muy del estilo... Así que nos acercamos hasta allí sin haber hecho reserva.

Claro, un sábado de agosto en Madrid... No suele haber mucha gente por ningún sitio y reservar suele ser ridículo... Pero al llegar a la puerta nos encontramos con la realidad del Tommy Mel´s. Es un local bastante grande e impresiona la cantidad de gente que hay (tanto sentadas en las mesas, como de pie en la puerta o en la barra esperando). Una chica a la puerta te apunta el nombre y te invita a pasar a la barra a tomar algo mientras esperas a que te llamen para sentarte por el micrófono de Elvis.

Pero claro, llegar a la barra es casi imposible de la cantidad de gente que hay y la espera, sobre todo si tienes hambre, se te hace bastante larga. Me vino a la mente la típica escena de las películas americanas de los 60, en las que los camareros, ataviados con ropa de la época, corren de arriba a abajo sudando y agotados, las que limpian las mesas lo hacen sin que las veas siquiera y los cocineros tienen cara de querer morir.

Aunque la comida vale la pena, no es muy cara (si no pides mucho, si te vuelves loco...), nuestra cuenta no alcanzaba los 17 euros por una cesta de patatas con bacon y queso, dos hamburguesas (que son enormes frente a las ridículas hamburguesitas del Peggy) y la bebida. No es delicatessen, ni mucho menos, pero no sabe a plástico, como cabría esperar. Aún así, me quedé sin probar los postres, no hagáis como yo y dejad las cañas pre-cena para otro día.

For now, the best burger i've ever had

I met Tommy Mel's will as two years thanks to a friend who recommended it to me, and I painted it so well that I convinced my group of friends for us to celebrate the upcoming birthday there. The restaurant is near the Santiago Bernabeu, and upon arrival gave us bad impression that was buzzing and had to wait half an hour, but the wait was worth it, and in spades. The location is veery made in the style of the 50 Americans, music and clothing including the waiters, and even have a jukebox music machine original. After we ordered nachos with cheese and bacon potato snacks while bringing burgers, nachos were bag, so do not recommend it, but the potatoes were very rich. And here biene good, the burgers were delicious! We all loved it, even those who tend to have more problems with food. And finally the dessert. Shakes have all kinds, cakes, brownies ... I personally recommend taking the beat while you eat the hamburger, is typical of the American hamburger and it sounds a rare blend is yummy. In short: If you want to try a VERY good burger, at an affordable price, the shakes if something pricier, but worth it, Tommy Mel's visit, not regret.

De momento, la mejor burguer que he probado

Conocí Tommy Mel's hará como dos años gracias a una amiga que me lo recomendó, y me lo pintó tan bien que convencí a mi grupo de amigos para que celebráramos el próximo cumpleaños allí.
El restaurante está cerca del Santiago Bernabeu, y nada más llegar nos dio mala impresión porque estaba a tope y tuvimos que esperar como media hora, pero esta espera mereció la pena, y con creces.
El local está muuy logrado, al estilo de los años 50 estadounidenses, música y vestimenta de los camareros incluida, y hasta tiene una máquina de música jukebox original.
Después pedimos nachos con queso y patatas con bacon para picar mientras traían las hamburguesas, los nachos eran de bolsa, así que no los recomiendo, pero las patatas estaban muy ricas.
Y aquí biene lo bueno, las hamburguesas estaban riquísimas! A todos nos encantó, hasta a los que más problemas suelen tener con la comida.
Y por último el postre. Tienes batidos de todo tipo, tartas, brownies... que personalmente recomiendo tomarse el batido MIENTRAS te comes la hamburguesa, es típico en las hamburgueserías americanas y aunque suene una mezcla rara está riquísimo.
En resumen: Si quieres probar una MUY buena hamburguesa, a un precio asequible, los batidos si son algo caritos, pero merecen la pena, visita Tommy Mel's, no te arrepentirás.

We had this restaurant near the hostel where we were staying in Chueca, from day one we noticed the decor, and decided we could not leave without trying something from the menu, we were a weekday noon and still no people, although filled later, ordered a burrito and a sandwich and both were great, the price is affordable


Teníamos este restaurante cerca del hostal donde nos hospedábamos en la zona de Chueca, desde el primer día nos llamo la atención su decoración, y decidimos que no podíamos irnos sin probar algo del menú, fuimos un medio día entresemana y todavía no había gente, aunque más tarde se lleno, pedimos un burrito y un sándwich y estaban estupendos los dos, el precio es accesible

Lousy deal in the street hortaleza

Food pretty good, does not have much merit as it is a franchise of a burger. Receive the products and I see no difficulty in frying potatoes, pass the burger grilled and placed in a certain order the ingredients. Undoubtedly the best thing about the room is decorated as it is uncommon in Madrid. The service is lousy, today we went to eat, when we asked for a table for two, we were told that it would be 15 minutes we seemed reasonable for what we were and we had a beer, after 50 minutes we finally give the table. The minute order brought potatoes and soda, then took more than 30 minutes to tell us who had lost our order, so imagine how were the potatoes when they have burgers ... and finally we had to ask three times account. And after this spectacular treatment have failed to invite us to a sad refreshment.

Trato pesimo en el de la calle hortaleza

La comida bastante buena, tampoco tiene mucho mérito ya que es una franquicia de una hamburguesería. Recibe todos los productos y no veo la dificultad en freír unas patatas, pasar por la plancha la hamburguesa y colocar en un cierto orden los ingredientes.
Sin lugar a dudas lo mejor que tiene es el decorado del local, ya que es algo poco común en Madrid.
El servicio es pésimo, hoy hemos ido a comer, cuando hemos preguntado por una mesa para dos, nos han dicho que serian 15 minutos lo que nos parecía razonable por lo que nos quedamos y nos tomamos una cerveza, finalmente tras 50 minutos nos dan la mesa. Al minuto de pedir han traído las patatas y los refrescos, después han tardado más de 30 minutos en decirnos que habían perdido nuestra orden, por lo que imaginaros como estaban las patatas cuando han llegado las hamburguesas…y para terminar hemos tenido que pedir tres veces la cuenta.
Y tras este trato espectacular han sido incapaces de invitarnos a un triste refresco.

We went after him in minube, shortly after arriving to Madrid. We were at Plaza Castilla and could go for a walk. We really liked the decor and service. The fries, burger and milkshake correct. Price 2 pers. (No dessert) 25 €.


Fuimos después de verlo en minube, al poco de llegar a Madrid. Estábamos por plaza Castilla y podíamos ir dando un paseo. Nos gusto mucho la decoración y el servicio. Las patatas fritas, la hamburguesa y el batido correctos. Precio 2 pers. (sin postre) 25€ .

Highly recommended.

As everyone has said, a very good site. A couple of comments, NOT make reservations by phone, and if you can not more ... Calls in take-home dessert worth q! Good quality, price, service. About € 20 per person.

Muy recomendable.

Como ha dicho todo el mundo, un sitio muy bueno. Un par de comentarios, NO hacen reservas por teléfono y sí no puedes mas... Pide en postre para llevar a casa que merece la pena!! Buena calidad, precio, servicio. Sobre 20€ por persona.

Birthday celebration

I was at the one in the CC Plenilunio. Equally nice but somewhat smaller. Fast food quality, all very acclimated to Grease. The price is similar to Friday's. I ordered burger, you have to ask the lining apart.

Celebración de cumple

Yo estuve en el que hay en el CC Plenilunio. Igual de bonito pero algo más pequeño. Comida rápida de calidad, todo muy ambientado a lo Grease. El precio similar al Friday's. Yo pedí hamburguesa, la guarnición hay que pedirla aparte.

Tommy mel's

I took a few co-workers to lunch, I was a little reluctant because I had been in a similar restaurant in Madrid and I did not like, but the truth is that this very well, is a large site with a very accomplished decoration (not as in peggy everything looks very shabby and cramped to eat next door). I ordered a regular burger and a drink, was very good and I could not even finish the, great price, for less than 10 € ate great and the site has a lot encanto.La downside: we had to wait a bit until table because he got to the top, but the wait staff deserves pena.El is quite nice, especially the lady of the entry.

Tommy mel's

Me llevaron unos compañeros de trabajo a la hora de comer, yo era un poco reacia porque había estado en algún restaurante parecido en Madrid y no me había gustado,pero la verdad es que esta muy bien,es un sitio grande con una decoración muy conseguida(no como en el peggy que se ve todo muy cutre y comes apiñado con el de al lado).
Yo pedí una hamburguesa normal y una bebida,estaba muy buena y no me la pude ni terminar,de precio muy bien,por menos de 10€ comí estupendamente y el sitio tiene mucho encanto.La única pega:tuvimos que esperar un poco hasta que nos dieron mesa porque estaba hasta arriba,aunque la espera merece la pena.El personal es bastante agradable, en especial la chica de la entrada.

Another one.

One more American hamburger. Far better than its direct competitor, I guess we all know who is ... lol The new street opened Hortaleza being a hit. Far more spacious and comfortable than other hamburger roll "Grease". Desirable but not the best ;)

Otro mas.

Uno mas de hamburguesas americanas. Bastante mejor que su competidor directo, que supongo que todos sabemos quien es... jeje
El nuevo que han abierto en la calle Hortaleza esta siendo un exitazo. Bastante mas amplio y cómodo que otras hamburgueserías rollo "Grease".

Aconsejable pero no el mejor ;)

American style

Almost what I like about this American food franchise is the decoration of their premises. It is an authentic American style, typical of what we have always seen in his films. Then, we must recognize that their burgers are worth (much). Their hot dogs are not to miss. The truth is that it is one of those places that I love

Estilo americano

Casi lo que más me gusta de esta franquicia de comida americana es la decoración de sus locales. Es una auténtico estilo estadounidense, lo típico que hemos visto siempre en sus películas.

Luego, hay que reconocer que sus hamburguesas merecen la pena (y mucho). Sus perritos calientes tampoco son para perdérselos.

La verdad es que es uno de esos sitios que me encanta

Now i'm on a diet i can not stop thin...

Now I'm on a diet I can not stop thinking about this hamburger pieces hot spot in Madrid. Quality at a reasonable price, friendly atmosphere and good desserts do you have repeated more than once.

Ahora que estoy a dieta no puedo dejar de pensar en las pedazos de hamburguesas de este sitio de moda en Madrid.

Calidad a un precio razonable, ambiente agradable y unos buenos postres hacen que haya repetido más de una vez.

Very ordinary

After reading some positive reviews I decided to go, and it's actually a place where theoretically the burger is the specialty, but it is no big deal, at least the burger Viva Las Vegas. The dessert, brownie, also lots of cream pot. Good price.

Muy normal

Después de leer alguna crítica positiva me animé a ir, y en realidad es un sitio donde teóricamente la hamburguesa es la especialidad, pero no es nada del otro mundo, por lo menos la hamburguesa viva las Vegas. El postre, brownie, también del montón con nata de bote. De precio bien.
