Mom's Bar and Grill - Seward, Kansas
The chicken fried steak sandwich at Mom's Bar and Grill in Seward, Kansas is one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The delicious, tender, hand breaded steak is served on toast with mayonnaise, onions and anything else which you request. It is one of the pricier items on the menu, a $8.99 without sides. The menu shown at the bottom of this page is from 2017, but all prices quoted in this review are from March 2020.
Mom's Bar and Grill is on an unpaved street and has a dirt parking lot. None of the streets in Seward are paved. From the outside the restaurant looks like a metal shed and there is a poured cement floor. But the people are friendly, the food is good and it is a long drive to the next restaurant. Mom's is the kind of place where everyone knows everyone else and there are conversations across the dining room.
The bar at this bar and grill is in a separate large room to the side. I haven't seen alcohol served on the restaurant side, but you can get the kind of pop which you want. They serve multiple brands in 20 ounce bottles.
Mom's is reasonable. Dinners including salad, potato, Texas toast, vegetable and coffee or tea range from $8.50 to $22.50 (steak & shrimp). But save room for pie ($3). Many (but not all) of the pies are made in house. I love the way the menu says they have pie "Only When Available."
