Mom's Kitchen - Olathe, Kansas
Mom's Kitchen in Olathe, Kansas banned smoking. THere is a large, diner style menu and quick service. The food is consistent, more than special. I've never had poor food at Mom's Kitchen, but I have never had a dish that really stood out above other restaurants. The servings are generous and a good value. Mom's is open for breakfast and lunch until 2PM seven days a week.
Mom's serves real mashed potatoes, chicken fried steak, and biscuits & gravy. Breakfast is served all day. The most popular items are probably the pork tenderloin and big 10 ounce cheeseburgers. The onion rings are not homemade, but are still better than those at many restaurants, and the serving is 2-3 times larger than most. For only $3.99.
On my most recent visit, I had the patty melt. The server didn't ask how I wanted the burger cooked and it came out cooked medium well. THe meat was juicy and tasted great with the two cheeses & grilled onions on top. The French fries were much improved from a year earlier - not fresh cut, but crispy and golden.
The servers are friendly, but careless. Don't be surprised if one sits down at your table to write down your order. The interior of Mom's Kitchen is quite dark, but most of the seating is at booths that have a light above the table.
Diners who are in wheelchairs would have a hard time using the small rest rooms at Mom's Kitchen.
This long time Olathe, Kansas restaurant is a good value.
