We stopped for lunch on our way to Arches National Park. Good burger and French Dip sandwich. Service was excellent and the banana cream pie was outstanding.

Needed to get gas on I-70 and pulled off in Salina. Decided to eat and instead of doing the typical HWY exit food, followed the small sign to Mom's café. It's about three minutes from I-70 and is smack in the middle of town. You walk into a typical small town restaurant - diner style with a counter. The food... More

Mom's is a popular place to stop when passing through town on the way to national parks.A classic diner stuck in 1950, it's the kind of food a midwestern or western mom might have served hungry farm workers--biscuits and white gravy, meat and potatoes, American cheese, etc. Pretty basic salad bar--lettuce, peas, grated cheese, onions. Maybe worth stopping to say... More

There is a reason the sign says "Best food in town". Cause it is. The long time favorite of locals for the wholesome old time food. No chic or designer foo foo food here. Last time there, i got the Ruben - huge. Comes with tomatoes, onions, pickles,a d lettuce. But ask the very friendly staff for 1000 Island dressing... More

We recently drove from Park City to Moab. Drove out to Interstate 15 south to Scipio and took route 50 to Salina. We didn't want to eat lunch at a fast food place and I found this place marked on google maps. It's right on the corner where we would turn to go down to pick up interstate 70. What... More

We had heard about this place, but it was really only average in every aspect--food, appearance, and service. I will say the portions are large.

We stopped through here on our way to Moab, UT. My husband wanted a scone... but they do not serve a real scone. what they call a scone is what we would call a "fry bread" and it is served with honey-butter. it had decent flavor, but was not the healthiest! What they make is mostly from scratch and decent.... More

Did not meet my expectations after reading reviews. Maybe we just showed up on a bad day. Food was adequate but not exceptional. Best item was home made french fries. What they called a scone we would have called "fry bread". Pretty good but greasy.

Thank Lois R
