“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We were visiting in the area and are always looking for good restaurants for breakfast. First of all we find it extremely difficult to find good breakfast restaurants offering varied menus in Texas. However, we found Mama's Restaurant in Tyler to be the exception to that rule. The restaurant is large and rustic inside. The service staff was very good and seemed to enjoy their jobs. The menu was varied and featured a large number of interesting breakfast choices. I had the Migas and my wife had the Eggs Benedict. Both were wonderful and very well prepared. I highly recommend Mamas to anyone looking for a good breakfast in East Texas.

“Breakfast Just Like Mama Does It”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

When we go out for breakfast, this is where we go, and they do it as good if not better than Mama does at home. Now that's saying something!

“Great breakfasts!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Visited Mama's twice during our recent trip for the banana nut pancakes. Very good and worth the trip into town. Small hometown atmosphere - friendly staff.

“Like an English pub”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch while waiting for a friend's car to be repaired across the street. We both had the meatloaf special which was excellent! The portions were very generous and the service excellent by a very friendly staff. The facility reminds me of an English neighbourhood pub. I will be back!
