Mama's Daughter's Diner

2014 Irving Blvd. Dallas, TX 75207 | Downtown & Deep Ellum | 214-742-8646

Location Description:

If the name didn't clue you in, Mama's is all in the family-a large family, with five offspring (by which we mean locations). From the beginning nearly 40 years ago, Mama has done things the hard way (i.e., from scratch). Home-cooked favorites include meat loaf, chicken and dumplings as well as the obligatory chicken-fried steak matched by classic Southern sides like turnip greens and candied yams, just to name a few. If you're not weighed down by all the fried goodness, enjoy a litany of pies, ice box and otherwise, for dessert.
