I've been going to Mama's since I was a kid. The food is always good as well as the service. It's one of my favorite places for a good American meal. The portions are especially generous. Breakfast is really good. It's worth the trip across down and you can frequently find their coupons on groupon.

Came across this diner though a groupon. I am ever so glad to have found this place. Decided to visit them last Sunday for brunch. Ordered off their daily special and must say the portions were huge!! We tried their chicken fried chicken with gravy and the reviews all got it right!! it was heavenly!!! Highly recommend them for brunch.

You can't find better Comfort, homestyle food. (Although Mama's has four other locations in the metroplex.) Obviously she is doing something right. Family atmosphere, pleasant waitresses and helpful if you need assistance making choices. Daily specials are tasty and come with three sides included. Would highly recommend and certainly will go back. Very reasonably priced.

Good homestyle food; went here with kids hoping to find alternatives to chicken strips & fries and was not disappointed. Kids can get small portions of daily specials (though the standard chicken strips & fries is available, too). Adult portions of entrees huge - sides smaller. Appears to be a place locals like as evidenced by other diners. Friendly service,... More

They have great lunch deals, the fried chicken is my personal favorite. The food can be a bit heavy for a lunch but is SO good and worth it. There are a lot of sides to choose from and everything tastes great. Get the fried chicken!! The gravy is also reallllly delicious.

Do you want Home Cooked Food like grandma did it? Mama's Daughters Diner is a local joy. All the foods that grandma cooked and almost like she cooked it will be accompanied by rolls and cornbread. Breakfast to supper is served by a waitress with a fun attitude, who loves serving wonderful pies at the end of your meal as... More

Best place to eat in Irving! Not a fancy atmosphere. Feels like you are in a time warp back to the fifties. Good portions. You get salad , great cornbread and main dish with two extra sides. I never have room for desserts. My favorite is the grilled fish. it is great for my diet. Of course, I can not... More

Typical daily specials are chicken friend steak, chicken fried chicken, chicken & dumplings, and fabulous pies. All meals include rolls and cornbread as well. There are also hamburgers & the... More

The daily specials are always a sure bet when you eat at Mama's Daughters! My all time favorite has to be Thursday's Chicken Tetrazzini. It is so wonderful and SOOO filling! Plus you get THREE sides with a roll AND cornbread! All for less than $10! You just can't go wrong and will NOT leave hungry!

My husband and I were looking for a place for good ol American breakfast at 12:00 on a Saturday. We happened upon Mama's and stopped by. The place is run-down and dingy. It needs a lot of repairs and is overall a pretty ugly place. It took a long time to get our order taken, but once the food came,... More
