Food was excellent. Burgers were huge and one order of onion rings was more than enough for two people. Crowded at lunch time, but wait was short. The booth we had was a little worn, but it was sufficient. Seemed crowded in seating area, especially around the drinks station. We had to go to the counter to order, given a... More

The food here is GREAT. I always eat a burger and fries.. but all I saw looked amazing. Get there early cause they get really busy at lunch..or call-in. A must visit in Lufkin Tx.

If you want a little slice of Americana via an east Texas hamburger joint, Mom's fits the bill. You enter through the back or on the north east side, and slide up to the counter across the room. They are known for the burgers and chicken fried steaks (welcome to Texas!) so I recommend either of those. The chicken fried... More

Our treat for lunch. Great hamburgers, pork chop sandwiches, onion rings, fries. Always fresh. Quick, friendly service. Not many good diners like this. Convenient to downtown, medical offices & hospital.
