Occaisionaly I have to travel to Dallas on business and I do my very best to try and make it to MoMo's. I have never left there without thinking: "If only this place was in a different location it would be packed and I'm sure on everyone's Best Of Dallas list".
The location (Greenville and Forest Lane) is a strip center and it's next to a nail salon. If you didn't know it was there you would miss it for sure. It's full most days for lunch (mostly because it's right outside the gates of Texas Instruments) but it's not uncommon for me to have most of the place to myself on a weeknight.
This is NOT your typical NY/NJ--Tony Soprano type Italian. In fact you must go to the website and read the "We apologize....We're Italian" article that descibes why the menu looks more like something in Rome or Florence than Little Italy.
The food and service are outstanding. They don't have a liquor licence but you are welcome to BYOB. If I lived in Dallas I would do my best to partner with the owners and move it to Plano or Addison or Highland Park where it would get the crowds and accolades it deserves.
So Texas Chowhounds, jump in here and help spread the word. If you've been, Am I right about this place? If you've never been. Make the trip and report back.
I'm pretty sure you'll leave with the same feeling I do everytime--WOW!
