Traditional old style American diner. Very quintessential. Loved it. The service was fast even though the place was packed.

Looking for breakfast around lunch time and they serve breakfast here all day. Busy, but service was excellent, even with the 86 (?) year old waitress in the sparkly hat and red sunglasses. Friendly atmosphere and funky authentic atmosphere and decor. If I lived in Dallas this would become a hangout.

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

I was in town for a conference and looked for places near my hotel. We headed in one direction and came upon this restaurant. The menu was full of great 'home cooking" items. 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.
