    I chose Mama's because of the excellent reviews on Yelp.  We were there about 6:30 PM and there was hardly anyone there and that concerned me because it should have been busier.   We decided to try it anyway.

    Good choice!  My wife asked the server what was most popular on the Senior menu. He suggested 3-4 items. She then asked between two items so we all chose the one he picked; the pot roast with two sides.

    Tony, our server was outstanding.  He checked on us several times during the meal and seemed sincere with his questions.

    I had a salad and loaded baked potato.  All choices were very ample servings.

    He earned a good gratuity from us; about 60%. That may sound like a lot but, the total tab was very low.

    Have been eating breakfast here for a long while. I have never friend lunch or dinner. It's always as expected, no surprises. Great traditional breakfast items. Extremely reasonable prices. Service has always been good.

    When I have time on the road I love going out for a leisurely breakfast. I can picture myself being retired and meeting a group of curmudgeons every morning for coffee, conversation & exaggeration.
    This would be a great place to do just that. Casual dinner, friendly service and great breakfast menu. I'm sure the food later in the day is great also.
    I ordered an extra egg omelette & waved off the pancakes. It was huge, delicious and served freakishly fast.
    The servers were great and treated strangers like friends. Goya was my server & she was great!
    Another great experience thanks to my Yelp family!

    I ordered breakfast through Waitr, a delivery service, and was very disappointed with what I received. I ordered biscuits and gravy with hashbrowns and sausage. I requested to sub the sausage for bacon. When the food arrived, the hash browns were *very* undercooked and the biscuits were black and very obviously burnt. You would assume since it was a delivery order, they would have placed the gravy in a separate container so it wouldn't get all over everything, but no. The gravy was over half of the hash browns and both of the sausage patty's (that I requested bacon for). I can get over the food not being the best because it went into a carry out box and was probably in a car for 15-20 minutes but the under/over cooked food, and getting what I did not order is really what ruined the meal.

    My favorite place in Tyler for breakfast. It's like my go to place for breakfast. These guys have been even awarded with "Local Love Us" certificates for some years. They offer Breakfast 24/7 and other lunch and dinner texmex items. My favorite is their pancakes. It's just taste different than the usual ones. I only gave 3 Stats as the place is not that very clean. They need to work on that. The floors are really dirty, so are the restrooms.
