Horrible experience. I ordered two pies five days prior. I went to pick them up and there was no order. They boxed up other pies. Neglected to tell me one pie had a piece missing and they put another piece in the spot. I opened the box and saw it. I asked them if they thought that was acceptable. They... More

The place looks a bit run down outside, but this is usually the type of place that lets the food do the talking. The waitress was pleasant. The options are there for meals. The portions are good. Try the cheesecake. The price was very reasonable. Parking can be difficult.

Since 1970, this little place has been making homemade bread, pies and down home recipes for its' patrons. Originally owned by the sweet lady in the picture, now operated by Manuel Guillen. We started with a little loaf of homemade bread, honey butter and great salad bar. For $2.99 you can add a one trip salad bar to a main... More

We eat at My Mother's Restaurant often. The food is always top quality and the prices are very reasonable. Some portions are so large, you might want to share. Don't let the exterior of the place fool you.

To look at it from the outside, there's not much to see or entice, but step through the doors and take a gander at the pie selection just inside the door and you'll want to sit down and try some! The food is very good and the portion size will nor leave anyone hungry. I enjoy going up to the... More

Visiting from out of town. Food was very good. Outside of building and decor of interior not very appealing but I'm not eating those. From watching the interactions of the wait staff with the patrons I would guess that the place is full of regulars. We try to find the local spots when on vacation. This usually nets us great...

We dined My Mother's this week from a recommendation - and I would echo just about every other review on TripAdvisor: the restaurant is not in one of the better parts of Phoenix, one does not visit for the ambience as it's neither new nor recently remodeled (the seat in my booth was so heavily indented from decades of guests...

We (wife and myself) decided to try My Mother's Restaurant which is located at 4130 North 19th. Ave., Phoenix, AZ. The area this restaurant is in is a little run down but, please don't judge the restaurant by the area. We suggest you park behind the building and enter thru the back door. Our server was Jersey and she was... More

We went here with a party of 6 on Thanksgiving Day - I know dangerous! But "My Mother's" delivered up an excellent meal. The vegetable beef soup had prime rib in it and the turkey dinner with mashed taters and asparagus was fantastic - moist and tasty! The service was a little chaotic but that was to be expected.
