Fast service! Don't worry about having to spend too much time here unless you want to. Staff is very friendly and the food is generous. I ordered chicken fried chicken and my dad ordered a combo that came with 2 chicken fried steaks! So well cooked and fresh! Definitely worth the stop if you're looking for good old fashioned souther... More

The food at Mama's is delightful. You have to try the fried pork chop! It tastes like it came out of my grandmothers kitchen. Vegetables are very good. I promise you will not leave hungry!

When we asked our local friends where to meet for coffee they suggested Starbucks, we reminded them we're tourists and we wanted an original 1950's diner, fortunately I found this on the internet and it was within 5 minutes of our accommodation. It was perfect in every way, the interior could have been right out of Happy Days and the... More

Mama's Daughters Diner is a very quaint and cute family restaurant. If you are looking for a good meal try this place you will not be disappointed. I had the #2 breakfast with added blueberries to my pancakes. Everything was delicious. It was crowded on a Saturday mid morning but we were seated immediately even sharing a table with 4... More

Stopped in after church and enjoyed a very good breakfast at a reasonable price. I had the #3 and my wife had the veggie omelet - all came out quick and hot. Good coffee and great service!

Traditional old style American diner. Very quintessential. Loved it. The service was fast even though the place was packed.

Looking for breakfast around lunch time and they serve breakfast here all day. Busy, but service was excellent, even with the 86 (?) year old waitress in the sparkly hat and red sunglasses. Friendly atmosphere and funky authentic atmosphere and decor. If I lived in Dallas this would become a hangout.

We were on a "drive around" and passed through Forney. We saw Mama's Daughter's Cafe and went in. There is plenty of street parking outside. The restaurant is large and open inside. It is obvious from the people in the cafe that it is very popular with the locals, always a good sign is our book. The hostess greeted us... More

I was in town for a conference and looked for places near my hotel. We headed in one direction and came upon this restaurant. The menu was full of great 'home cooking" items. We each had a chicken fried steak with cream gravy. It came with three sides. I had fried okra, baked squash and mashed potatoes with gravy and... More
