This little dinner has the kind of comfort food that few other places have. Breakfast is a guaranteed to be good -- eggs, pankcakes, bacon, fluffy biscuits. Not in the mood for breakfast? Their lunch items are delish! Simple, straightforward, fresh fare that is very reasonably priced - chicken fried steak, meatloaf, great burgers. Save room for dessert or take... More

My husband and I came on a Monday morning and we picked our seat. Decided to order from the specials section. He got pot roast with green beans, red beans and Mac and cheese. I got the chicken fried chicken with Mac and cheese, salad, and mashed potatoes(which are for sure homemade). Everything is so good and no complaints whatsoever.... More

Stopped in at 7:00am for breakfast. I ordered the eggs with bacon, hash browns and pancakes. It was all fresh and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. I prefer this location as opposed to Irving Blvd.

When your craving pancakes or biscuits Mama's daughters is the place to go. Prices are great and though you won't find fancy food you will find great home cooking. The wait staff is great too and they keep everything moving quickly and efficiently even when the place is packed. I have not been there for dinner but did order pies... More

Went to the one in Plano a couple of days ago and really enjoyed the breakfast, that we came back to a different location. It's a warm atmosphere, and as I said in my Plano review, I love the "Mama" sayings around the walls. Service is always good, as is the food, but the biscuits are to die for! If... More

I was looking forward to trying this place based on the reviews. Pulled up and the parking lot was packed, which I took as a good sign. We quickly got a table. The food totally disappointed me...it was bland and the mac & cheese was neon yellow...not the homemade/down-home cooking I was looking for. Even the rolls and cornbread were... More

Mama's Daughters Diner is such a well known establishment in Irving, Tx that everyone knows where it is and almost everyone has eaten there at least several times. It's a local hangout where one can usually spot a friend or two. The decor is homey and folksy with Moma's sayings used as decorations on the walls and the borders of... More

Amazing find. Arrived at 10:40am and barely found a parking spot. The customers were of all ages and cut across many socio-economic levels, always a secure nod to the quality of food. Great service and food was lighting fast.

Thank C-Stop
