“Local favorite”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

I just discovered this great little diner. It is off the beaten path a couple of blocks west of us 1. On a Sunday morning there was about a 15 minute wait for a table. There was, however, no wait to get our food. The service was quick, the food came out quickly, and it was tasty.

“Nice little diner”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Mom's has been around forever, it is a nice little diner with a great selection on the breakfast menu. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. Always crowded especially on the weekends. Food is really good and the waitstaff is friendly and know what they are doing.

“Why bother?”
Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

The food is just, it's noisy, usually crowded, and the service was rushed. We didn't like being squeezed into a row of tables with strangers at our elbos, so I asked about moving to an empty booth mearby. The waitress just huffed and said to go ask the hostess. After our breakfast when paying the bill the woman at the register was on the phone (obviously a personal call) and didn't even make eye contact with us. So we left questioning if we would come back again. Why bother?

“Looking for good food at a great value in a place that is friendly and comfortable? Mom's Kitchen”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

We were in Fort Lauderdale for a wedding and operating on a budget. I was looking for a place where the locals go for good food at a reasonable price. We found it at Mom's Kitchen through TripAdvisor. The place has great food, friendly people and a comfortable atmosphere.

“Superbly Consistent”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We have been here numerous times for breakfast and lunch and each and every time the food and service is EXCEPTIONAL! We have tried many menu items and all have been tasty and deliciously served. The staff is second to none and are long time associates. We use this as our "go to" place quite often and have not tired of it!!!
