“Pleasant Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Mo's has been around for a long while. I've been eating here irregularly for over a decade. It's a large space, brick and aged wood. Service is pleasant, but it gets busy so it's not a fast-food joint. If I had an appointment to keep somewhere, I'd probably not come to Mo's - but if you want to relax and chat and generally unwind then it will suit. The brunch menu is extensive and interesting. My Mom likes the Eggs Benedict Santa Fe, which has a chipotle Hollandaise sauce. I usually go to the lunch menu and have a Citrus Chicken Salad -- which is really refreshing. You can't go wrong with their sandwiches. If you're vegan, you can probably do alright if you ask them. Vegetarians will have no problems at all. Lots of variety on the menus, a good atmosphere, plenty of space between tables, the ability to seat large parties and decent off-street parking makes this one of Toluca lake's better choices. Everyone involved is friendly and the manager keeps walking around making sure all is going smoothly. Recommended.

“Great spot for brunch in Burbank”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've only had brunch at Mo's so I can't speak about other meals, but the brunch will keep me coming back.

There is a long menu of scrambled egg and eggs benedict dishes, with some interesting nods to Southwestern and Mexican cuisine. The eggs benedict Santa Fe was spicy with very good turkey sausage filling in for the traditional ham. Accompanying potatoes are either yummy home fries or "potato Mos," this restaurant's take on mashed potatoes. The Malibu benedict uses avocados to tasty effect.

Brunch includes free sparkling wine. Well, up to three glasses, which, really, should be enough.

Service was friendly and efficient and the place has a real "LA feel." I kept expecting to see someone famous, but actually the food was the real star.

“Close to Warner Bros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

After our tour of Warner Bros studios yesterday we asked our guide for lunch ideas! He gave us a a sheet which listed nice places in the area. Since Mo 's was close we decided to try them. Although is was lunchtime we were seat quickly and our waiter was on the spot for our much needed drink orders. Three of our party ordered the lunch special, a Chinese Chicken Salad. All three were really happy with the taste and flavours. My lunch chicken sandwich was equally tasty. Drinks were refilled promptly and there seemed to be no rush for us to leave. Highly recommend this establishment, especially if you are visiting the Burbank studio area.

“SLOW service and food was a bit expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We waited 15 minutes to be served initially, and then another 15 after we were finished forthe check. Decent food and a cool, laid back atmosphere, but not enough to compensate for the painfully slow service
