Three different meals at our table and each one was more blah then the rest. Lunch came out quick is about the only positive however maybe if they spent a little more time in prep it would actually have taste. Won't be back

Didn't look like anything special from the outside but the down home atmosphere and home cooking were very good. I had waffles and my wife had an omelette and both were very good

Visiting San Antonio for the first time in many years and had to stop by Mamas to get my favorite deep fried mushrooms! Just as good as always and the service was great also. Good to see they have been consistent over all these years!
