Great Little Diner

We were vacationing in town and found this great little place. Pretty basic menu. Food is basic but very good. It's in a little strip mall off the beaten path so, it's easy to miss. Portions are large. The place was full of locals so, we knew it was going to be good! We would go back.

We're not from this area but a local recommended it. Now I know why. Really good breakfast and very friendly staff who greeted most of the people by name as they walked in the door. Hopefully, if we go back enough times, they'll remember ours. Loved the music, too - lots of oldies that I could sing along with which... More

This is the place if you want a classical American Breakfast. We went here from the near by Marriott and this was far better than breakfast at the hotel. The service was fast and friendly and the interior kitschy in a good way. We will probably return.

I tried this place for breakfast on my last trip to Ft. Lauderdale. The wait staff and hostess were welcoming and seemed genuinely interested in the patrons' satisfaction. I was seated immediately and had a drink order in within seconds. I tried the Irish Benedict, which was delicious, and my husband had the Italian omelette. It has a nice atmosphere... More

A street off federal highway just south of commercial blvd. it's where the locals come for breakfast, which they serve all day. Staff is friendly and the food is good and reasonably priced.

This was a stop over for 2 nights in Fort Lauderdale, we were met by a cousin and her daughter, they decided that we should experience a typical American Diner, they could not have chosen better. They had not been here themselves but had heard good reports, seven people left Moms completelt full and happy. The food was excellent and... More

Whenever I am in for lauderdale I try to go to Moms Kitchen at least once. The Stack of pancakes is large enough to split.You always have attentive service. The only draw back is that sometimes you may have to wait twenty minutes or so for a table

It's good down home cooking, right in the neighborhood and right around the corner to boot. I can see that "Mom" and her gals (the waitresses) have their favorites - but that's fine with me; it's good to establish a rappaport with your clientele and that gives me the chance to join that stellar crowd. I eschewed a table for... More

We go to Mom's every time we go to Fort Lauderdale, and we have never had a bad meal! Service and price you certainly can't beat it! It's a place where all the local folk go for home cooking, go once and you will see why!

My kind of breakfast place when traveling. Nothing fancy decor or location wise just great food served quickly. Reasonable prices. All in our party loved it.
