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.

While old newspaper articles about the great food and famous folks who visited, along with signed autographs from some of then, the current status of this historic restaurant is mediocre. The trout I ordered tasted just like it might in the 1950's...way overcooked with some tarter sauce on the side to hide the dryness. Vegies were one step above canned... More

Heading out to the national parks on 70 West. Got hungry. And got wicked lucky. The next stop was Salina, Utah and we were just going to grab fast food. I just thought we should head down the road a little ways to look for a hidden gem. Boy did we find it. Honestly, the outside isn't the most appealing... More

We needed to stop for coffee on our drive from Kanab to Salt Lake and came across Mom's Cafe. What a step back in time on Main Street ! And the pie was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. We were the only customers but the service was great. If you are driving through Salina, I'd recommend stopping by

My wife and I have eaten here numerous time over the years. This time I had the pastrami burger with fries and my wife had a salad, chicken noodle soup (with home made noodles) and a scone. All of it was very good. And yes, it's a home made scone) - can't find them much anymore. This place has been... More

Mom's is always the restaurant that we stop at when traveling through Salina for we know the food will always be good as well as the service. NO it is not some fancy schmancy place but it is real and so are the people that eat there and work there. Their breakfast's will always leave you full and happy and... More
