“Good, cheap breakfast.”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

We were heading home from Washington DC to St. Louis and needed to get a little breakfast after breaking free from the city traffic. I did a quick iPhone search and came across Mom's in Front Royal. It seemed a like a local place (we have really been trying to patronize local businesses), but was quite a way off the highway. We headed into Front Royal, which was a surprisingly prosperous-looking small town and about never found Mom's. It's tucked-away in a strip center a block off the main road. When we pulled up, there were cars all around and a group of folks sitting at a picnic table under a tree. I think that was the smoking area! My wife noticed a pile of cucumbers on the table & assumed someone had left their extras to share.
The place was almost full. It is just a diner-style place, nothing fancy at all decor-wise. The waitress was friendly and kept our coffee cups full.
We ordered the omelet special which was a 2 egg omelet with home fries and toast for $4!!! It was clear that they were catering to the local clientele with the money-saving special. The omelet was "flat", cooked on the flat-top, which is my preference, but wouldn't work if you like fluffy. The home fries were OK, not very seasoned and the portion was small (consistent with the price) and the toast was fresh, hot and covered in melted butter, so no pats of butter to try to spread.
Mom's is not elegant. The menu was pretty good for the type of place and it looked like they had some homemade desserts. If you want a plain, simple meal in a place that supports the community with quality and cost, give Mom's a try.

“Our new favorite restaurant in Front Royal”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

Mom's offers excellent food and good portion sizes for a great price. We've eaten there several times in the last month or so and it has been great every time. I've had the chicken sandwich and fries. My wife has had the tuna melt, and we've had the pancakes and eggs for breakfast. The food isn't greasy, especially the fries. Their fries are great!

The service is great and the staff is friendly. Check the chalkboard for specials when you come in.

If you don't know where the restaurant is it can be a little hard to find. It's located behind Rite-Aid and the Hess Gas station off Commerce Ave in a 1 story commercial building. If you enter from 55, it's back behind the bookstore.
