Excellent food. I got the burger and I'm not really a fan of real burgers and it was delicious. They have weird hours so you have to go during the week but the food is so worth it!

Great diner.. fast and friendly service... great food. I had a fantastic patty melt, but I have to say that my daughters old fashioned cheesburger was over the top! Kid friendly, noisy but so nice. Well worth finding this spot!

Wife had looked up for us to stop in at Lufkin. It was a great visit with outstanding burgers and great friendly folks. Wish I had room for pie, it looked delicious. Will stop by next time in Lufkin or in the area, it is that good.

Great food, service and people. One of Lufkin's oldest and finest. Whether you're looking for a good old fashioned burger or chicken fried steak, Mom's has a great variety and everthing on the menu is very good.

At a little 'hole-in -the wall' just out of downtown Lufkin, you will find one of the best chicken fried steaks around -- a no frills spot where corrugated tin is predominate in the rustic decor, and where burgers and comfort food populate the menu -- the chicken fried steak is the STAR! Portion: Huge, covers half the plate with... More

Hamburgers are the best and are always very fresh. Staff is very good and provides excellent service. Chicken fried chicken is also excellent.

The hamburgers and chicken fried steak are great...a good place to meet friends. You can get in and out easily and it will not put a dent in your pocketbook!

This establishment has a great cheese burger like no other, in the entire area of Angelina County, within the great state of Texas~ They are non-smoking and friendly service~ Worth the stop if you are in the area~
