The community support I’ve had here is unbelievable. If I came in with ten million dollars and tried to buy community support, it wouldn’t have come close to what I’ve gotten here.” He also explained their experience being open during COVID, saying, “I wasn’t afraid of it when my brother came to me and said, ‘Do you want to do another restaurant?’ I’ve done a lot of traveling. The best thing I’ve ever done is open this restaurant. With COVID I try to be careful. It’s still really serious.” MOM’s also has appropriately spaced tables for social distancing, and Their website reads “Welcome to MOM’s. Food so good it will make you say WOW.”
