Stopped in here because we heard lots of good things about Mums. The service was painful, we were a table of 6 sitting without a drink menu for 20 minutes, and empty beers for the rest of the stay. The food was bland, heavy, American cuisine, that took well over an hour and a half to come out. Best part... More

The ribs are super good and fall off the bones tender. I would recommend going here to eat if you get to Playa.

I heard about how fantastic Mom's is so wanted to check it out. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. I wasn't greeted by anyone and asked if I should sit myself somewhere. I had to ask for a menu. The waitress was very friendly but not really on the ball. I ordered a burger which tasted alright but... More

Hola Renee, thank you for taking your time and posting here on TA. Sometimes this is the only way to find out what's going on in the business once you are not there. Unfortunately I was for 4 month in Germany for medical reasons and I highly appreciate your input. That being said I don't want to make up any... More

I wanted to check out this place. I mean, you can only eat Mexican food for so long. The staff was really friendly and I enjoyed a couple of beers. I decided to order a burger but that was when the wheels fell off. I waited and waited. Finally it arrived but without the bacon. The waitress kept going to... More

This as the first place my daughter took me to eat when I moved to Playa (she’s lived in this area many years). I have since returned several times. I always intend to try something different from the menu but my intentions fly out the window and I end up ordering the ribs yet again -- they are so tender,... More

Sorry Mom. Mom's has great prices, the food was delicious, drinks were strong, and the staff was friendly. It wasn't too crowded, and was a nice relaxing evening. We felt at home, and like locals. Burger & fries, chicken breast & 2 sides, pina colada, 2 sodas... 345 pesos. The only downside I could find, and it doesn't affect my... More
