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~

Haven't ordered anything at Mom's diner that wasn't delicious! They are also fast in getting your order out to you.

So we decided to grab moms for lunch one day. Not a good choice this time. Omg we couldn't even eat the burgers and fries because of the excessive grease. We haven't been back since. The food used to be exceptionally great. But now not so much.

Food was excellent. Burgers were huge and one order of onion rings was more than enough for two people. Crowded at lunch time, but wait was short. The booth we had was a little worn, but it was sufficient. Seemed crowded in seating area, especially around the drinks station. We had to go to the counter to order, given a... More

The outside appearance of this restaurant is not remarkable, but don't let that scare you away. This is a marvelous place to stop in for a meal. We stopped by on a Friday evening. We were greeted by a staff of smiling faces. This is not fast food, this is food cooked when you order it. That is what sets... More

Best hamburgers and chicken fried steaks in Lufkin. Great service and friendly staff. Close to hospital if you need something within a short distance.

Fantastic home cooking, clean, and great service! Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed! My husband said it was the best chicken fried steak he has ever had and he knows his chicken fried steak. I had the hamburger and could only eat half because it was that big. This is truly a home cooking experience. It is not a... More

If you want a little slice of Americana via an east Texas hamburger joint, Mom's fits the bill. You enter through the back or on the north east side, and slide up to the counter across the room. They are known for the burgers and chicken fried steaks (welcome to Texas!) so I recommend either of those. The chicken fried... More
