Great Home Cooking and Friendly Service

My family and I just happened onto Mother's on the way out of town after arriving into PHX. We try to avoid restaurant chains while on vacation, instead try to find good local restaurants. We really enjoyed the home-style cooking and older, iconic atmosphere. Even though it was busy... read more

Home cooked meals. Meat loaf was delicious, chicken fried steak was also delicious. Home baked warm bread was so good we pigged out on it and had a difficult time eating our meals. I hurt myself overeating, but it was so good I couldn't stop

My Mother's Restaurant is located in a strip mall next to the busy Indian School street. The outside looks like the restaurant could be a bar, it does not really look like a restaurant. The parking spaces were mostly full, so we parked in the back and actually entered the restaurant thru part of the kitchen, which looked well lighted... More

The ambiance of this spot is adorable - very homey and thus true to its namesake. Service is efficent, friendly and genuine. Food is good but not great. The pie, however, is flat-out boss; 1/5 of a pie and yummy.

We were in town on the way to Flagstaff and a traffic problem forced us off the interstate. One of us saw the restaurant & took a chance ! How could a place called "My Mother's Restaurant" be anything but great ? The food was so delicious - the open roast turkey sandwich - so yummy fresh & tender -... More

Don't let the area deter you from trying this place. The staff was very friendly from beginning to end. Not a huge salad bar but, plenty of choices. My entire party ordered the lasagna which was probably enough for two people to split. It was served in a ceramic dish with what appeared to be 1/4 piece of French garlic... More

They have all the food your mom once cooked meatloaf, turkey prime rib and pies. You can't go wrong and the price is very affordable, maybe one of the best values in Phoenix

Our first time here and the Chicken fried Chicken was awesome! I don't usually like fried foods but this was very good. I thought the coconut cream pie was just OK. I know they are famous for their pies but the crust was hard and a had no flavor. The coconut cream was ok but had a wierd geletan texture.... More

Perhaps the best Prime Rib around , anywhere ! The rest of the menu is great too . Just don't order the Pizza . It is terrible . The dough / crust , way too thick and weird texture and taste . Sauce ? Bland and out of a can . Cheese ? They try to cut costs here too... More

Ordering off of the web menu was easy with a very helpful person on the other end. Delivery was timely and food was still hot with large portions and really nice touches. The ribs were great as was Cole slaw, salmon, and a really great veg medly (not Birdseye as I expected!). Sliced turkey sandwich was really great too with... More
