Yes, this restaurant is not only a place you can take your mother on Mother’s Day, but the name of the restaurant is called Mother’s Day Restaurant. I’m sure they’re found easily in the local online search for a spot to take mom’s for Mother’s Day!
I found this restaurant while trying to find a breakfast spot on my way to North Riverside Mall. It’s practically down the street from the mall in the cozy western suburb of North Riverside, Illinois. During the time I searched for it on Google, it had an average of 4.4 stars for its ratings.
This was perfect and impromptu brunch spot to include in my 2024 Best Brunch Challenge!
It’s a nice joint with plenty of parking. The staff were friendly too. As expected, it was crowded for a Sunday morning, but surprisingly, we sat down right away. We were eating breakfast about 20 minutes of sitting down.
My husband tried the Mexican Omelette and gave it a good review, but he didn’t care too much for the pancakes. Yes, they look fluffy, however, when you bite into them, there was an extra texture – not rubbery, but there was some tension when you bite into the pancakes. Weird, but it was there. Once he added butter all over the pancakes, apparently that made it better. Ha Ha!
I ate the french toast and skirt steak skillet. Both were good, however, the french toast was a little light on the nutmeg and / or cinnamon. The skirt steak skillet was really delicious. That was my first experience. They added all the best toppings too. Fluffy eggs, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, two different cheeses, including swiss. The portion size was large, so I took some home to eat the next day.
The only surprising issue was the juice. Originally, I ordered the cranberry juice, and I had to send it back as it tasted too weak. Literally as if they got a glass of water and adding red food coloring. Yes, that bad! So the other choices were orange or apple juice. I was really trying to avoid acidic drinks, but I wanted some sort of flavor. I opted for the orange juice and that was somewhat better, but it tasted powdery. Needless to say I didn’t finish it.
If I’m in the area, I might try this restaurant again, but I’d definitely opt for a soda instead.
