It is a mom and pop cafe and is well visited by locals. We always try to get by to get a burger when we are in town. There are other things on the menu but we only get the burger.

Congratulations on your new location. Much improved!! I normally get the chicken strips which are big enough that they can be split between two people. Great service. Drive through pick up is available for call ahead orders.

Mon's has good home style cooking and they have just built a new place. I guess business was getting to big for the old one. Really nice place. People are friendly and place is clean.

New location has a drivethrough which is a plus. They also now take cards which make it very convenient. Best burgers in Lufkin and very nice employees.

This place is closed. We were in from out of town and used trip advisor to find some good local eats, but this puppy was all boarded up. I just wanted to pass along the information to fellow travellers.

This is the classic heart attack on a bun hamburger. Greasy as can be and HUGE! And boy is it good! The flavor is outstanding. Cooked perfectly. And...the price is right. Be sure get extra napkins, you are going to need them. Once you have had a Mom's hamburger, you are hooked.

Burger was seasoned and cooked perfectly and the sweet tea was great too. The fries were a little disappointing. I went to the drive thru so they were in the bag about 10 minutes before I ate them. They were typical fries....I could make the same thing at home...maybe I will try onion rings the next time I go. The... More

This is a small, no nonsense cafe. They offer burgers, chicken fried steak, hamburger steak burger, fries, onion rings, and drinks come in only 1 size with free refllls. Made sense to me. Mom's Monster burger1 is a large burger with what looks like a hand pressed, home fried pattie of meat....1/3 lb of meat. They put at least an... More
