The last time here was bad. it was a couple years ago. But my last recent visit was better. I noticed an effort to keep the place up and the chicken sandwich was very good.Fresh cut fries. If they keep it up maybe it can return to its old quality. One of the keys is hiring quality cooks only and... read more

I have eaten at Mom's many time. It was not the same experience. The lettuce was old and very wilted in my house salad. The vegetable beef soup was barely warm and didn't have any beef. My wife's fries were cooked in very old oil with an awful aftertaste. The only thing that was good was the blueberry cream pie.... More

Mom's Cafe is to Utah what diners are to New Jersey. The food here is of the comfort variety with a home made flair. I found this place by accident in the middle of a blizzard and it was one of the highlights of my trip. Chicken fried steak rocked it!

Mom's is one of the best old fashion, home-cooked meal locations in the country. A real gem hidden in Salina. The chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and white gravy is fabulous. Just sit back and enjoy. They also do a wonderful catering service. The staff is very friendly.

9 dollars for a sandwich with a single slice of meat. 20 dollars for lunch, complete waste, go to Richfield to eat. Every place in town stinks.

The lunch special on Thursday was chicken pot pie so that is what I ordered. Can't remember ever having a better chicken pot pie in a restaurant. Lot's of local folks eating lunch here with being open for so many years suggests THIS IS THE PLACE for lunch in Salina, Utah.

On the return trip from Moab to Salt Lake City we stumbled upon a great place called Mom's Cafe. From all the clippings on the wall it looked like we weren't the first. The food was great. I had a chicken fried steak that was great and the portion was perfect. The mashed potatoes were like mom used to make.... More

I needed to meet a friend in Salina and Mom's was the only place I knew. I ate there a few times during the past 30 or so years on my way from Colorado to Nevada. My friend and I had the senior menu: two pieces of halibut (deep fried in what tasted like old grease) and tartar sauce that... More

We always stop at Mom's on the way to St. George. It just wouldn't seem right if we didn't have lunch here. The coffee is great, the food is old fashioned food and the atmosphere is fabulous. You can meet the most interesting people here too - everyone from hunters to college professors. We love it...definitely not gourmet but lots... More

Ate there this evening...looked so nice, rustic and old fashioned from the outside. but did not expect much with respect to interior decor thus it delivered...not much character, not much indicating history...but enjoyed reading the old media reviews etc. framed on the wall. Asked for sour-cream blueberry pie, but the only available was cherry and apple, which I noticed covered... More
