About Po’ Melvin’s

4.4 / 5

from reviews

This 30-year-old landmark transports the palate to the French Quarter with 10 different po' boys including meatloaf, chicken fried steak and a list of seafood that comes fried or blackened. "My dad is from New Orleans. We have Louisiana roots," says Mel LeMane, who owns the place along with his family. "The menu is Southern cuisine with a little Louisiana plan. His uncle owned Campisi's in Dallas - the 1945 Italian institution and said to be Texas' first pizzeria - and it was all LeMane ever wanted to do. "My dad always wanted to be in the restaurant business and I was studying restaurant management at Texas Tech so we could open a business together." Thirty years ago, they did just that, opening first in an old Dairy Queen, with a menu that focused on home cooking, like the black-eyed peas his father won multiple prizes at the State Fair of Texas and growing the menu from there.

Their food is ohhh so excellent!! With New Orleans cuisine deeply embedded in my family, I can honestly say it was really good!! We ordered the Porkchops, Collard Grn, Mashed Pots and Gravy....very good. The Porkchops were made to order and tender!! The Catfish, Beef Empanadas and Colossal Shrimp were great! I added my usual Lousiana Hot Sauce and Pepper Sauce to add some kick!! Melvin is EVERYTHING!! He and Melissa were extremely accommodating!! Dont miss out on a touch of Louisiana in Texas!! My absolute fave was the Red Beans and Rice!!! So yummy!!
