Welcome to Mama's Cafe!

In the Spring of 1975, a revolution began at 9907 San Pedro, A small group of amateur entrepreneurs joined together to transform the address into a unique community-oriented restaurant, a gathering place for all walks of life, whose food and service would be good, and where anyone could be comfortable. They named her "Mama's". Time continues to add to the crazy list of things that have happened over the growth of the company since the good ole days ... cook-offs, pour-offs (best Margaritas in town), auctions, sales of all kinds, benefits, tournaments, concerts, contests, Park and Rides, beer busts, receptions, reunions, and even a circus.

Think back, we know you have your own memories to share with Mama!! The revolution goes on!! Good food, affordable prices, genuine service, comfortable, unique environment and active involvement in the life of the community. A success story written about more than restaurants, but gathering places where food and drink are enjoyed ... and fun is shared!!

We LOVE going to Mama's Café in San Antonio. They have the BEST fried mushrooms anywhere! Their chicken fried steak is really good too -- but, if two people are going, only order one chicken fried steak because it's enough for two people!

An Urbanspoon review 8/10/2013
Mama's is a wonderful local restaurant which serves true Texas comfort food in a casual atmosphere along with extremely reasonable prices. Walking in to view the plank-paneled walls with all the old advertising signs from ages ago puts one into a down-home feeling even before being seated by friendly staff. Everything is cozy, rustic, and warm. You can expect a large crowd on weekends, so plan accordingly.
Service is quick, even when busy. The food is excellent here. The fried pickles are very tasty and not greasy at all. My partner ordered the chicken fried steak, which was enormous. I ordered the meatloaf. Both of our meals were perfect and we had generous portions.

Love! Home cooking, friendly and fast service all for a great price. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is the kind of casual place I liked to take my kids to when we traveled with them. Skip the chain restaurants, eat here instead.

Good solid basic American comfort food executed very well and served with a friendly smile.
My favorite meal to hit Mama up for is breakfast. There are a few items that are my absolute favorites. These are (in no particular order):
COUNTRY SKILLET - chicken fried steak with whole kernel corn, onions and southern style gravy
EGGS BENEDICT MEXICANA
- english muffins topped with canadian bacon, poached eggs and chile con queso, served with hash browns, refried beans and salsa
BISCUITS & GRAVY - buttermilk biscuits served with sausage gravy.
I made myself hungry just doing this review.
Head on over, Mama has a place at the table saved for you.
