Mom's is owned by the same person who owns Madison Bear Garden across the street. It featured home style cooking with a huge menu and friendly staff. Only place I know locally where you can get a good Monte Cristo Sandwich.

They have done a very nice job decorating the restaurant. Breakfast fare was slightly above average.

I hate to give bad reviews, I usually choose not to review at all. But I had a couple bad experiences at Mom's a couple years back and gave up on them. Many of my friends have said the same thing. But in November I was talked into giving it another try and we've been back 4 times!! Service A+,... More

Stack of pancakes for my young granddaughter. She liked the pancakes but could only eat a fourth of the stake and asked for a box to take the remainder home. $7.99 The "Texas" french toast could have been better with more flavor - like cinnamon. Syrup was not spectacular. $6.99 A plate of bacon- probably 6 strips: $3.49 Coffee was... More

Poor service. Took 45 minutes to get cocktails and one hour for entrée. Will never go back. Complained but all we got was lip service and $70.00 lighter. Plus we were outside and asked the waiter to turn on the space heater. He said the manager would be right out to do it. NEVER HAPPENED.

Party of 4 on a Saturday night. This place is kitty-corner to the Bear in downtown Chico right next to the Chico State campus. Was not very busy. The "Grown Up Mac $ Cheese" with added bacon was the highlight, but for $16 ($13 plus $3 for the bacon) and no salad or anything else included, the price seemed high.... More

Eat at your moms,...this is the same deal, old fashion down home meals for all the family. Food is prepared on site, local products. Just a nice place, especially for breakfast and lunch!!

This place is awesome for breakfast, one of the best morning meals we have ever had! The entire staff is so pleasant and friendly. The food is home-cooked delicious. Servings are so generous that selections can easily be shared. Husband's Bloody Mary was superb. Hands down will return when visiting Chico again. FYI Reservation strongly encouraged if you plan to... More
