Seriously old school home cooking

I've been waiting years to review a place with the line, "They put Fritos on their salad." But now I can finally say it. It's a weird quirk, but this whole town seems somewhat weird and quirky so it shouldn't be a surprise. My husband had their apparently famous chicken friend steak and he insisted... read more

There are not many choices for food in Salina, but this is a good restaurant with home cooked food. We enjoyed the tasty veal cutlet and yummy scones.

Firstly, the service here couldn't be any friendlier or sweeter. We ordered an egg and cheese sandwich on toasted whole wheat bread and it was delicious. This is perfect road trip stop food. Generous portions, great menu, great service.

the food is very average, and the service is subpar. Too bad, because it has the potential of being a charming eating spot.

We are just passing through and saw a sign pointing towrd town for Mom's Cafe. We really like little out of the way places so we gave it a try. The fried chicken was delicious. As you may have read on other reviews the scone is worth the trip! Also, the salad bar doesn't have a top notch presentation but... More

Great Scones (about 8") comes with some meals -- Chicken Fried Steak. Salad great. Wife had Turkey Sandwich and Clam Chowder which she enjoyed. Got a wedge of Apple pie to go (They did a number on this one and gave a slice which had a burnt bottom crust -- Something obvious if served plated) Was disappointed that a place... More

When you first walk in it seems plain, just a small cafe, but the service is outstanding and so is the food!! I had the smothered fried steak w/gravy came with mashed potatoes and veggie..large portion and delicious! Oh..and their " scones" with honey sauce were great also! Not your typical scone..more of a sopapilla..but still awesome!

This place is a dump - I am a Coeliac and need a Gluten free diet - because I have special requirements I do try to keep my choices simple. I ordered Salmon and a baked potato - nothing else just those two things - the potato skin was hard and the potato was gray and looked like it had... More
