Dont believe the reviews on Yelp, this place is awful. Don't waste your time dining here. We ordered breakfast. I requested "crispy" hash browns, was given frozen potatoes with a grey soggy finish that I couldn't take more than one bite of. The over easy eggs were ok. The biscuit was OK, the gravy was a congealed tasteless mess. Although... More

We made a mistake by not going to the breakfast place across the way but instead decided to try Mother Hubbards because they advertised "home-made" hash which is hard to find. My husband asked for the hash well done as well as the hashbrowns that came with the meal. He specifically asked for the eggs to be on the side... More

Our group was seated right away and our waitress was very much in tune with why we were there. She was very courteous, ensured each order was to our liking and the food came out in a timely manner. This is not our first time at Mother Hubbard's and it won't be our last. The food is excellent and worth... More

We came here late in the afternoon for lunch. Our favorite restaurant in the area was already closed, so we were stuck with Mother Hubbard's. The lunch we had was adequate and the service was very welcoming. However, the place was visibly VERY dirty and we would never go back there again. I don't know how Tripadvisor gave it a... More

We ate here with our twin eight year old granddaughters. It was close to Solvang where we were staying but not the tourist pricing. This is like a Mom & Pop diner and the menu has many good selections for any meal you want to order. The kids menu was something that the kids really wanted to eat and still... More

Jon from Mother Hubbard's and I wanted to thank you for giving us a try. The Jerry Burger is pretty good, I think we might be the last place in the Valley to still grind our own beef, and that helps with the flavor. A few years ago we did special burgers each week that were inspired by a rocker... More
