I'm a meat and vegetables type person. I like homestyle cooking. This resturant provide that at a decent price. The salad bar was also very good with a lot of variety. Would recommend.

Anyone who travels us 50 between Ely, Nv and Grand Junction knows how hard it is to find a nice place. This is it. Great food, lovely people, spotlessly clean.

Had the perfect lunch here today - tuna salad on sourdough with a pickle and chips and a Coke. Service was friendly and our lunches arrived in just a few minutes.

Every trip to southern Utah includes a stop at Mom's Café in Salina. I love that it's off the beaten track, ie Hwy 50, not I-15. I love that the same waitress has been serving pie and coffee over the years. And, I love that pie. It's a real place, not a faux diner created in a suburban mall. Expect... More

Disappointing lunch. If you like fried and processed food, this is the place for you. Uninspired burger and an extra side salad drenched in dressing. Overall, if you simply want calories & to be filled up you may be satisfied. Not particularly healthy or tasty fare. The wait staff were nice ladies who were working hard to serve to lunch... More

This place has been around for a long time, and no wonder! We have eaten there on a number of occasions over the years . . . and we have never been the slightest bit disappointed. Great value; excellent service; AWESOME scones; amazingly good food for the price charged. Don't miss this place!

We had just one night in Salina and decided to try out Mom's. Our expectations were not high so we were not disappointed. It's a 'seat yourself' restaurant and you pay at the counter when you leave. We both ordered different burgers and while they were a little better than McDonald's, they weren't a whole lot better. I was impressed... More

This is about as good as it gets in small towns in middle America. It is a pleasant meal and a nice environment, but my mom's cooking was better. Maybe that's not the case with all moms. Take a few minutes and wander up and down the street after your meal.

Got off the interstate for gas and a bite in the middle of a mid-May snowstorm. None of the freeway close oldish looking fast food places seemed inviting so we drove a mile or so into Salina. We'd entered a time warp . . . back to the 40's and 50's. This comment goes for the town . . .... More

Exactly what you would expect from a small town in the west. Bland comfort food. I wasn't disappointed by the food but no reason to rave about it. I had a chicken fried steak which was ok, probably frozen and not made fresh. The mashed potatoes were not instant which is good. Service was average, once again, nothing to write... More
