Edit: After contacting the restaurant directly (via Facebook), management was very apologetic and offered an opportunity for us to try the restaurant again. She said she would share the information about inattentive wait-service with her staff. It could be that the response to the Groupon was more intense than expected. Luckily, we visited using a Groupon, so we weren't out a ton of money, but we were very disappointed with our first experience at Mama's Daughters Diner @ the Plano location. We ordered two home-cooking staples, thinking it would be a good way to gauge the quality of most of their food. My husband's chicken fried steak was tasteless (although the gravy was good), and my meatloaf was just incredibly salty. The sides we chose tasted like they were store bought... or, in the case of the candied yams, not even as good as store-bought. The salad greens were fresh (and they do have the tasty ranch that isn't super mayonnaisey, so I was happy about that), and the bread was quite good. So maybe we should have made a meal out of bread and salad! We went, though, because all the reviews we'd read said they had great pie. And... at 6:00 PM they were completely out of pie. How can you be out of pie two hours before you close? The server we worked with was unapologetic and unavailable-- we were never asked if we needed anything else, if we wanted dessert (we had to flag her down to ask about the pie), or if our food was up to par. It was busy, so that may have been part of why she paid us no attention, but she was incredibly attentive to the table of older women seated right next to us, so it was hard to give her the benefit of the doubt by the time we left.I'm just surprised our experience was so unfavorable, since so many others have really enjoyed this restaurant. We will NOT be returning. For homestyle cooking, we much prefer The Diner on Beltline, near Marsh (formerly Norma's Cafe) and Babe's Chicken.

One of my fav's in south Irving! Always a fun upbeat vibe, friendly staff, a really fast kitchen, and classic diner/Mom food like overcooked salty veggies. Don't order the chicken fried steak, that's a disappointment. Meat loaf is kind of average. Everything else is good!

We visit Mama's just about every Friday morning. The staff takes very good care of the customers and they learn to know you if you're a regular. They have just about the best breakfast in town, and plenty of choices. The number 3 is a staple, but a pecan waffle every now and then is just awesome.
