I was there with a large group, and there were very accommodating! fried mushrooms were great, but the chocolate cake was warm and yummy! I had the soup and half sandwich which was plenty for lunch BUT the soup had spilled all over my plate and sandwich making it very soggy and messy! the waitress were NOT the most pleasant!

I can honestly say that I now understand why this is the last remaining Mama's Cafe in San Antonio and their customer service explains why. We were a large group of 25 which made reservations on Monday for Saturday night. Once we attempted to check-in, the homestead immediately told us "I'm sorry but we never received your reservation" and wasn't... More

Visiting San Antonio for the first time in many years and had to stop by Mamas to get my favorite deep fried mushrooms! Just as good as always and the service was great also. Good to see they have been consistent over all these years!

We took the kids for I wanted a salad and fried mushrooms. Never realized the kids menu was only fried items until I had the Grandkids. They could have a veggie instead of fries but still all the other was fried. Wish they had something that was a healthy option for them as well.

The service here is friendly. The house margarita is exceptionally made and priced. The fish tacos were delicious but the tortilla was too flimsy and fell apart when I tried to pick it up. Otherwise the food is fresh and well prepared, especially considering the value. I've eaten at other Mam's Cafes and would do so again when the occasion... More

The Tex-Mex wasn't very good or authentic. The fried mushrooms were very good. I ordered fajitas, the chicken was tough and the onions still had the skin on them. The peppers were good and fresh tasting. My husband ordered the fish tacos. All of our food was served warm/hot, but it wasn't Tex-mex flavors, it was very bland....eg. didn't have... More

Stopped with my co-worker as we were in town on a business trip. Had a typical breakfast. Food was very good and no complaints on the service either. Good stop.

I am living the dream. When Mama's in Houston was sold and promptly closed down - I thought I would never ever again have their delicious breakfast along with the best cinnamon coffee I have ever had. Well - happened to stumble upon this last Mama's Cafe. It's a treasure. If you ever have the opportunity - don't miss your... More

we try and get to this place since the other ones on the west side closed down. We go there for the Fried Mushrooms of course but the Chicken Fried Chicken is also a hit after the Mushrooms.
