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

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

Was looking for a place nearby to grab lunch, and the reviews didn't let me down. They have the best rolls and cornbread that I have had in a long time. Grabbed a bacon cheeseburger for lunch and I was all set! Highly recommend grabbing a bit here if you are in the area, it won't disappoint.

Ate there twice during my stay at the Anatole. Would go again. You need to be ready to meet new people. the place is crowded and they seat singles next to singles. Everything was great. Cornbread, rolls, gravy all great home cooking. they don't try to be fancy. There is nothing to figure out from the menu. it is what... More

I went to eat lunch here and had been here before and it was always good. cornbread is still good. However could not eat much of the meatloaf and navy beans I ordered. Neither were tasty and actually tasted bad.

You won't be on your diet after eating here. Good chicken fried steak with gravy and black eyed peas and cornbread. Gained 3# but it was worth it. Friendly waiters with good old southern hospitality.

Stopped in for late breakfast, early lunch around 11 am on a Thursday morning. 3 kids, 2 adults. Suzie Q took great care of us. Large portions, great coffee, diner vibe. 💜💜💜
