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. The restaurant is located on a busy corner on Av 30 and Calle 4.... More

Stopped in here because we heard lots of good things about Mums. The service was painful, we were a table of 6 sitting without a drink menu for 20 minutes, and empty beers for the rest of the stay. The food was bland, heavy, American cuisine, that took well over an hour and a half to come out. Best part... More

The ribs are super good and fall off the bones tender. I would recommend going here to eat if you get to Playa.

I heard about how fantastic Mom's is so wanted to check it out. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. I wasn't greeted by anyone and asked if I should sit myself somewhere. I had to ask for a menu. The waitress was very friendly but not really on the ball. I ordered a burger which tasted alright but... More

I wanted to check out this place. I mean, you can only eat Mexican food for so long. The staff was really friendly and I enjoyed a couple of beers.
