Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mother's Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

It's definitely not worth the hype. The food's alright, and the po-boys are decent - but come on. I'll never figure out why this place is always so highly ranked among New Orleans restaurants. If you do go, yes, get the po-boy. But don't expect anything special or comparable to the wait you're going to have.

Editorial review from Citysearch

We were told that this was a good place to eat. Don't. The people are rude there and the food was not that great and priced to high for what you got. We went for breakfast. The next day we drove to Shoney's, which was further from where we were staying but better food and service. Try Huck Finn's, Cafe De Monde anyplace else.

Ham for those who don't eat breakfast

Whew! After reading all of the flames, I thought you might want to try some of some excellent ham -- black ham that is. We ate at Mother's a couple of years ago. I don't normally eat ham, but tried the black ham. Wow! Tender, tasty, and decadent. We had breakfast there again today. Poached eggs, grits, black ham --- WOW! Yes, the system of service is a bit unusual, but not horrible. Ask the rules as you go ... view more

Good homey feel

5 of us chose this establishment based on a recommendation. We were a little put off by the order process as it took a long time. The food, however, wa decent- not spectacular. The others in our party had never been to New Orleans before and wanted the real cuisine. For the price, it was good. 2 of them were teens who aren't the most adventurous taste-wise, but decided to taste the jambalya- probably won't be conside... view more

Horrible Service and food

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Horrible service...Rude and nasty staff, including the owners SON. I paid $17 for a waffle, ham and grits! We waited 40 minutes to get in...And Another 30 minutes for food. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. This place does not exemplify the hospitality and appreciation that is present in New Orleans. I think I am going to write to the Mayor of New Orleans. I attended ... view more

Better places

Being born and raised in NOLA I can say for sure that there are much better places with friendlier service than Mother's. I was honestly pretty shocked when Travel Channel featured them on a show - they are somewhat of a joke around here.

Great New Orleans Style food

True Louisianna food...beans and rice, fried okra, jambalya or a shrimp poy . The shrimp is AWESOME! Every time I've gone, there has been a well know celebrity in there!!

Not worth the calories, not worth your hard earned money

This is a tourist trap. All of the people who took the survey and gave good reviews on this restaurant is either insane, doesn't know what good food is, or employees, relatives, friends or owner of this restaurant. Crappy service, mediocre food above all pricey for all the abuse you get from their employees. Think about it your keeping their restaurant afloat. You work for your money why would you just waste it on a ... view more

Overhyped -- Except for the Fried Chicken

Have to agree with a lot of posters that a lot of the food is only average. But the shrimp po boy and the fried chicken really do stand out. The shrimp was perfectly seasoned and cooked, and so tasty with the sauce. The bread was a little dry, but overall it was good. Fried chicken was the real star. DELICIOUS breading and so incredibly juicy and tender was the meat. Sadly, the shrimp creole and jambalaya were ju... view more

Hometown Goodness

Visited New Orleans for about 1 week. Went here twice. Food is southern, inexpensive and tasty.
