Mama's Daughters' Diner


This past week, my Mom and I tried out this little diner. There are four locations, we went to the one on Industrial, and then perfected the outing with a stop at the 'big' Half Price Books. I had never even heard of this diner, but I think I must be the only one in Dallas....the parking lot was completely full at 1 pm. There was a wait in the door, and they slam the food on the table so quickly, and move you through in speeding fashion (with a smile). I was talking to a friend one day, and her friend was coming into town, and she just mentioned the list of places her friend always had to go when she came back through town (she's moved to Seattle from Dallas as an adult), and this was one of those places. It was really good homecooking. They are open most days from about 8-3 (hours are on their sites), and some locations have weekend dates. The meals are served with homemade rolls, and cornbread (no complaints here). I got a meal with three sides, and a soda for about 10 dollars. The inside is nothing fancy, very 'diner', but there are cute little sayings you might have heard your mama say as a child. It reminded me of Poor Richards in Plano. Anyway, if you are in the area, I agree, it's worth a stop.
