Mom's

10 E. Main St., Salina, UT - (435) 529-3921

I don't recall who owned the place or even what it was called before "Mom" got it, but I've eaten at Mom's pretty often over the past 20-30 years. That makes me feel old! But anyway... Dad grew up in Salina, and Grandma still lived there until she was talked into selling the house and moving to a retirement facility, so we kids probably ate there at least once a year for quite a while.

The thing about Mom's, for me, is that it's amusing. Maybe that's the wrong thing to say about a restaurant, but there it is. Haven't been there in a few years now, but I'll be going down in August and I'll see if it's changed much since the owner retired last summer. Salads and the salad bar are disappointing; I agree with whoever said that. They probably buy their salad in giant bags rather than making their own. I was a vegetarian for a while and Mom's is definitely not the place to go if you need a good salad. But the other food is great! I usually have a fried egg sandwich. It's exactly what it sounds like. Strange, and tasty.

They say if you're on a road trip, or stranded in a strange town, you should eat where the truckers eat, or eat where the locals eat. This is both, as far as I know. Skip the Subway and whatever else has sprung up around the hotels there at the junction of I-70 and US-89, and go into town and eat at Mom's.

Scones automatically come with your meal at Mom's and are served piping hot.  With a little honey butter drizzled on top, these breads are delicious and addictive!

Mom's has several different homemade pies to choose from, but the most unusual and delicious is the blueberry sour cream.  My waitress mentioned that they sometimes have cherry sour cream pie, too.

Mom's is a classic three-meal-a-day small-town restaurant.

This Mom is distinctly Southwestern, with a unique Utah twist.
