We love Mom & Dad's. They have a great menu (kids love the homestead burgers; mom and dad usually get a wrap), and the shakes are great after hiking trails in the nearby Indian Mound Reserve. Their prices are incredible; last weekend our family of...6 ate well for under $60! After 5-6 visits, we've experienced fantastic customer service each time.More

Enjoy trying local food places like this for some of our favorite food items like hot dogs and ice cream. I had my first pizza hot dog and a peppermint tornadoe that was delicious. Would definitely recommend if you are in this town and looking...for a place that has a menu derived from the heart of Americana at an affordable price.More

I absolutely love Mom and Dads. I've lived in Cedarville my whole life and it does not get the recognition it deserves!

Anytime I’m in Cedarville I try to stop in at Mom & Dad’s. The food is great, the people are nice, and it adds a hometown feel to this college town. This tiny little place is full of great flavors. Today I had the Gramps...Burger (peanut butter on it)... it will be hard not to get this every time from now on! Soooo good!More

Cute little addition to Cedarville. Good ice cream, and food. Like the drive thru window and they also have call ahead. Lots of parking.

It's amazing! I love this place! I love that it is a mom and pops establishment. All the staff are nice, friendly, and welcoming. They have scrumptious food as well as delicious desserts. I recommend the "dad's lot" burger and a large order of cheese...curds with their southern ranch. It is delicious! You will want another order of curds to go! The only thing that is inconvenient is that it is small inside. A large family, like ours, takes up most of their seating, but it is so worth it. I believe that their are picnic tables in the back that you can sit at too. There is also limited parking since it is a small place. None of that has stopped us from going. The food and variety of different drinks and ice cream desserts keeps bringing us back. I recently had family from out of state up two different times in the last two months and both times we came to Mom and Dad's twice if nothing else for Ice cream! You definitely need to check it out! Like now!More

It’s a beautiful little place with great food at a normal cost, but most importantly excellent service! I can’t tell you what a big difference it makes when the people in a restaurant are just so sweet. Thanks for the experience!

Stopped in for a bite to eat after walking the Indian mound trails. Friendly speedy service. Your local mom &pop place. We enjoyed the double burger & grilled chicken wrap). After lunch we treated ourselves to shakes(chocolate & chocolate malt)!

This is a must stop! The food is great and the atmosphere is rarely found any longer. Still a family owned and run store, stop by and see them. You will love the food, service and time you spend there. I’ve been going there for...over 18 years!More

So many choices and flavors of ice cream to choose from. Burgers looked wonderful but we stopped for ice cream. Their Tornado (like a blizzard) is wonderful with so many different choices and options.

Mom and Dad's is unpretentious yet iconic. It's the perfect spot for locals to grab an ice cream cone or passers-through to grab a burger and fries. Limited seating makes this place most comfortable for solos or couples. The large menu selection, the clean environment...and the friendly service make this the perfect spot for a quick and casual lunch or dinner.More

This golden spot in Cedarville is a great American diner. I ordered a fresh, tasty cheeseburger along with a delicious German chocolate tornado. They have lots of flavors of ice cream and a large menu selection. Although they don't have large tables, they treated our...large group well. I'm definitely coming again next time I'm here.More
