Driving west on I-70, approaching Salina, we relied on our GPS to help find a lunch place. Up popped Mom’s Place, two miles off the interstate. We liked the name. We gambled on going to this little unknown eatery. The solid stone building has been on its Main Street corner since 1878. In the early days they dealt with caskets... More

This was our first meal in a real restaurant! What a poor choice it was, poor quality, poor service and absolutely no vegetables, not even a bit of lettuce. Vegetable of the day, a slice of tomatoe. The owners decided to close early to go to a sport event, so everything was thrown together with no effort made, but the... More

I had a bowl of Navy bean soup & a large garden salad. Spouse had trout, baked potato, corn & a scone. All was good. We had never seen a scone look like... More

We went to Mom's Cafe for breakfast...it was delicious! Homemade biscuits and gravy, made from scratch scones (with honeybutter), pancakes, eggs, ham, etc. The service was great and the food was amazing! I don't know about their dinners, but breakfast gets an excellent rating!

We were travelling from Escalante to Salt Lake City and pulled into Salina to take a break. Saw this cafe and decided to have some lunch, so glad we ate here. It was a classic diner straight out of the 50s. You really feel like you've come home. We all had burgers followed by pie and coke from the soda... More

Really, really good burgers and some of the best fries we've had in ages. Loved the fact that the decor wasn't a staged "flashback", just a genuine cafe from another era.

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.
