“Chili probably not Mexican style but”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Delicious chili! prepared to the recipe of the owner Michael? a European guy.... I had a Margarita which was forgettable...partner had Cuban rum, which he loved! too much...if you get my drift...this is a great local place with many American expats, so if you're tired of feeling displaced, go here for cocktails and chat... oh and the chili!

“American home cooking”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We had dinner at moms a few times. Service is always good and the food is so, too. It is American home made food, I would call it, so if you like this kind of food, then this is the place to go. I had once chilly con carne, was a big portion at a fair price and very tasty. We lately came for the Cuban night, as Jürgen, the owner returned from a vacation there. I had mojitos, among the very best I had in Playa and again at a very fair price. Jürgen itself has been in that business for a longtime and is very nice, down to earth and good to give you some tips about Playa del Carmen or also Belize.
