A labor of love...

Mel’s Commissary & Catering is the brainchild of Melody and her husband Al Bowers who operate two
Al’s Burger Shack locations in Chapel Hill. Befitting its name, Mel’s serves as a commissary kitchen for Al’s Burger Shack and caters offsite and onsite events throughout the Triangle.

We can cater most any event from a large party or wedding, to a smaller family gathering. We offer Box Lunches (sandwich and one side) as well as Sandwich Platters, Soups, Entrees, Sides and Desserts. If you want to bring Al's Burger Shack to your party, you can order Shack burgers, hot dogs and crinkle-cut fries or Al can set up and grill burgers on site.
