The food was quite good. It was a bit loud in the restaurant, but overall a good dining option. The margarita flights were excellent.

Tex-Mex
Myers Park
About the restaurant
Chef Ford Fry and Chef Kevin Maxey, together designed a “Mex-Tex” menu that plays to their own Texan roots, tracing the beginnings of the cuisine to the 1930s, when Mexican cooks first doctored up their dishes to suit a “Gringo” palate with Americanized elements, giving birth to the Tex-Mex dialogue. “Kevin and I wanted to do food we like to eat,” Fry said. “It’s natural for a chef to want to be true to a certain culture, and likewise, we wanted to do authentic Tex-Mex, because it developed where we’re from.”

Salted Melon is a nice casual place . The dinner menu has a little bit of something for everyone. I appreciate the somewhat healthier menu with items that still taste really great. The cocktail menu was also eclectic. The two drinks I had were great. My dishes were good portions and delicious. The service was good as well.

Our waitress Morgan was great. Food was good for the price. Coffee was too weak. But overall, would be back.
