martha's kitchen stinks

This has got to be one of the worse restaurants in Riverside County.
Four of us went to Martha’s Kitchen on Hemlock Ave in Moreno Valley.
The A/C was broken and it was hot. We stood at the door to be seated but no one acknowledged us so we sat ourselves down at a table. There were dried food stains on the table and while we sat there sweating while waiting for someone to come to our table, we had to listen to some very loud music.
We were about to get up and leave when a waitress came over and asked if we wanted to see a menu.
DUH! The menus were greasy and dirty with finger prints. We each ordered and while waiting we asked for water, the classes were dull looking and the water stunk like sewage. We wanted to leave but decided to stick it out, thinking that the food would be worth the wait.
Well, we were wrong. The food was very greasy and the vegetables were burnt.
None of us could eat the slop, we asked for the manager and after several minutes we were approached by some dirty looking man who needed a shave and a bath.
He went on about how good his food was and never had any complaints before.
He refused to give us a refund and said we should leave.
We were upset and asked who the owner was. He said that he was the owner.
We left and walked over to IHOP.
The Health Department should close that stink hole down, what a bunch of aholes.

We also went there and found it to be a dirty place. The food was bad and it was so hot that we could hardly breathe. The service was ok but who would expect any better from a place like this.
I like to support my brothers and sisters but they
don't care to improve.
I wish them well. But we will find a better place.

I ate there once, about 3 months ago and I did notice that the whole place is setup strange.
The music was loud and lousy. They had floor fans blowing but it only caused a greasy smell flow from the kitchen. The waitress wasn't really friendly. She seemed to have an attitude. My food was too spicy and dripping with grease or something.
I don't know how that place stays open.
They must be flying under the radar of the Health Department.

Wow Jamar don't be so harsh on a business that you only went once. Maybe you should have shared the information with them instead of putting it on the Webb to hurt. I think we should build up and not tear down. Try not to be so quick to judge.
My experience on the other hand was great and very blessed! I saw and experienced nothing you posted. The sweet pie and cobbler is the best in town!
Listen up Moreno Valley support small business and give them a chance

For the record the waitress that was so rude I know for sure that has to be a false statement. There are only two female employees and they are extremely full of the Fathers love !

I just had a fresh serving of collard greens and cornbread at Martha's Kitchen. The only thing that stinks is the chitterlings. Aren't they suppose to stink?

I just had a meal at Martha's Kitchen. The collards and cornbread was off the chain. It's refreshing to get a home cooked meal at any given time when you go to Martha's.
Thanks for being in the community!

Ps Great service! I truly felt welcomed

What a heavenly experience at Martha's it's obvious the owners are God fearing people that love to pray. Walking in the establishment I could feel the peace and it wasn't the air conditioner.
Clean floors, bathroom, and the television going with a good morning show about cooking.
I truly would like to encourage people to support businesses in the community like this.

I've seen lots of reviews from others who have visited Martha's Kitchen in the past and I have to say that Martha's Kitchen has made some MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS! They now have a flat screen tv and more drinks like peach tea. I'm not a fan of fried foods but have to say the fried chicken was pretty good! My favorite menu item by far is the peach cobbler. It's moist and the crust tastes fresh. Needless to say I ordered another peach cobbler to take home with me. The owners are very friendly and offered Kool-Aid to my kids (11 and 7) when we ordered. I like the budget menu option and the small restaurant feel. I can tell they are definitely working on what needs to be improved and must say I will definitely be back in the near future.

Don't know how long they've been there but it's a terrible location. I've been 3 or 4 times. Food is good and reasonably priced when they have it available. So call ahead to make sure they have what you want. They are always friendly and cook the meat (fish) fresh when I go. I have a hard time finding decent country food in Riverside County so was pleasantly surprised to find this place.
They could use their downtime cleaning the menus and sprucing up the place. But good value, good food, good portions. Bad location.

Today and always has my experience at this restaurant been GREAT!!! The environment is always clean and the temperature always bearable or better than described above. The food is always Good and Tastey. Did you know that you can even call in your order? Loud music? The t.v. was showing and they even let me change the channel....This is one of the most pleasant restuarants in Moreno Valley. So, give them a try! I am pretty sure you're gonna love this place. Safe too.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Good EATING!
