I was hoping that this place would be good seeing that there arent many restaurants in the area and I was also hoping that the pictures of their food that they had on their website were a good representation of how good the food would taste by the way it looked. Well I was wrong and the order of wings and the house salad that I ordered were HORRIBLE. The wings didnt look anything like they looked on the website picture and they tasted worst than I could ever imagine. After eating one I realized that I wouldnt be finishing the rest because they weren't thoroughly cooked all the way through...and the hot sauce on them tasted awful on uncooked wings. I asked for a house salad and I received shredded "Taco Lettuce" . The croutons were as hard as rocks...I asked for cheese and I didnt receive any. I asked for jalapenos and they were mushy... I asked for extra salad dressing and they charged me for it. On top of all of that they put my shredded lettuce (supposedly a salad) in a very small styrofoam box. I was totally outdone because I was really hungry, I had read a couple of good reviews on their website and I had just wasted nearly $16.00 after a tip and I was left with some awful wings and a styrofoan container full of shreded taco lettuce and croutons that nearly broke my teeth. Well needless to say I wont be wasting anymore money at Nasty Mamas...I mean Sweet Momas. If I want some good wings I guess I will have to travel all the way out to Buffalo Wild Wings. If I want shredded lettuce/ Taco Lettuce I can go to Taco Bell.

Best family style breakfast in Lake Nona or just about anywhere in Orlando. I come here almost every weekend. Very friendly service, although sometimes the kitchen can get a bit backed up during the busier mornings. Eat at the bar if you're in more of a hurry. Country fried steak, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, eggs benedict, and everything else I've tried is excellent. I can vouch for the burgers and gyros also, although I don't have much experience here outside of breakfast... I need to fix that.

We were in the area for a couple days and came across this place hidden in the back of a strip mall. Thought we would try it and ended up eating here two days in a row. The food , portions and prices are great. The servers are very friendly and did a great job. The owners even came out and greeted us. Two very nice ladies. They know what they are doing. We had a gentleman server named Juan, very polite and knew his job very well. Took very good care of us. I would highly recommend this lovely place.

Some of the Best Home Cooking I have ever had across the USA...... You name it they have it.
Great Meatloaf & all the trimmings. They have daily specials that are to die for. Just Great Down Home Cooking.
