We stopped by here at 11am on our way through to Moab, and saw this local spot as well as some typical chain places. We opted to try this one without knowing what to expect. We were quite pleased. I had the pancake breakfast with sausage patties (late breakfast), and my companion had a cheeseburger (early lunch). The pancakes were... More

Mom's in Salina was once spoken of with glowing adjectives and promises to return. Not anymore. And it's sad. It used to have such a great reputation. We shared a "broasted chicken" dinner and wondered where the meat was. It was pretty much all crunchy skin with a few morsels of chicken. It came with a baked potato and some... More

I've heard about the homemade pies at Mom's so we had to try while passing through. I ordered the veal meal. It came with homemade chicken soup which was nice but too salty! The veal was extremely unappetizing! it was watery in the middle and the white gravy reminded me of the homemade glue we used in kindergarten! The pies... More

Being in the Restaurant and Hospitality business, I can say, I tend to offer forgiveness and have understanding of a restaurant if it has some flaws, or not quite what most restaurants offer in service and selection however, this restaurant was by far a huge disappointment! Hoping to have a nice dinner with a small town atmosphere, friendly service and... More

We're 5 minutes away from the worst apple pie the 3 of us have ever eaten (and 2 of us are from Utah). Mom needs to go back to 4H to relearn pie making. Minutely diced apple in a gooey and tasteless corn starch filling with a bulky, heavy crust. Our lunch entrees were passable but the overall experience was... More

If you're wanting a cultural experience, eat here. No, the food isn't healthy or even very good. The Californians all want fresh fruits and nuts which isn't going to happen in the middle of nowhere. But I've had great food (abeit calorie laden) in the middle of nowhere and this isn't it. The wait staff are probably unfriendly. You are... More

We always look for local places , especially those who say they make home cooked food. There was nothing home cooked about this- fish was old and chewy, veges were from the bottom of the bag, and they even gave us a bottle of honey-butter " flavored" stuff for a fried bread type thing they brought. I mean- you can't... More

For many years we would stop in Mom's and buy dinner and lunch. This May we made our annual trip to go fishing at Fish Lake Utah, and stopped in for lunch. I understand it has a NEW OWNER! I asked what three menu items she would recommend: Chicken Fried Steak Spaghetti Dinner Prime Rib Upon inquiring about the spaghetti... More
