Moms is a great place to meet up with friends or meet new people. The staff are friendly, fun and good at their jobs. The food at Mom's is comfort, home cooked meals that are good every time. The menu is diverse, fills you up and makes you want to come back again and again as many of us have... More

You won't find any Mexican food here. My girl had ribs and I had a great steak. Great choice for when you just don't feel like any more Mexican food. Great WIFI

Went to Mom’s it was a casual, comfortable eatery! The servers and the guests were friendly and open. All but one of us had a great meal. The ribs were moist and pork chops looked amazing after being cooked directly on the grill. It is easy to get too by walking or a quick cab ride. It is also a... More

We found ourselves returning to this strange little upstairs restaurant in Playa once again...in search of their amazing Baby Back Ribs. Such a strange little hole in the wall....such good food. This restaurant is the personal playground to it's owner who seems to be always on site catering to his friends mainly, who are having a great time. You might... More

Best time in a long time of going to Mexico! Great room , supper friendly staff best bartenders in Playa del Carmen. It's not the Ritz but never had half as much fun there. The price is right.

We've visited Mom's several times during the past couple of months in Playa del Carmen. Service is always great, attentive, quick and friendly. Our food choices have been quite tasty and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the burgers, chicken fried chicken, chicken cordon bleu and ribs.
