One of my favorite things about vacation is the food! I love eating out and trying new restaurants and cuisines. After our Dixie Stampede Experience, I assumed it couldn’t get any better than that, I. WAS. WRONG.
We ate at Mel’s Hard Luck Diner on our last day in Branson, and it was an experience!
When we got inside (being that I have dreamed about auditioning), the first thing I noticed was the American Idol paraphernalia!
That’s when I realized that the past idols they had pictured, had worked at the diner! While I thought it was cool, I was kind of disappointed, I mean it’s not like I would get to see Jason Yeager or Matt Kester singing at the diner, after being on AI!
The atmosphere is what you would expect from a diner, only the waiters/waitresses sing for you! I have been to some restaurants where the waitstaff can barely keep drinks on the table, so to serve and sing is pretty impressive!
Our waitress Karla was an excellent singer and even surprised John Jr. with a little “Blue Moon” serenade!
Then it happened. I realized that the guy with the amazing voice who sang Unchained Melody better than the Brother’s themselves was – Jason Yeager! Yeah, that’s right, he was there, singing….and waiting tables!
Listening to him talk to the customers at his tables, I was very impressed by Jason. He seems to be very humble, even after his Idol fame!
Jason, if you happen to read this (haha), I would like to encourage you to keep doing what you’re doing! Stay humble and do all for His glory! You know He has a plan for you!
So my overall experience at the Hard Luck Diner ROCKED! The food was diner food (which is always enjoyable), but I would come back just for the atmosphere!
Thanks for a great time!
