“Surprised ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Granted Mom's is seriously lacking in ambiance. However, I am VERY surprised by the few negative ratings on the food. Simply put, it is excellent! If fried chicken, fish/oysters are favorites of yours, this is the place to go. Even vegetable lovers will be more than content ... all choices are impeccably seasoned; with meat only added if desired. My husband & I are happy with vegetables alone. Enjoy!

“Delicious southern style food in Hawaii!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Mom's Soul Food was delicious and reminded me of the South. The fried catfish and chicken were wonderful! And the cornbread and Kool Aid are great ole school favorites. To top it off, the owner CC was very friendly and made us feel right at home all the way in Hawaii!

“Long wait great food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013 via mobile

The wait was a lot longer than expected but the food was great. The fried cabbage with bacon and the cornbread were by far the best I've had in a long time. It's best to call in an order because of the wait.

“The place is a dump and the food is...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2010

The place is a dump and the food is overpriced! Sanitation doesn't seem to exist here...filthy dishes, workers on their cell phone while preparing your food,... Food's tasty but not recommended if you're looking for something healthy.
