I sent a friend to check out the fuss and this is what he said:
Yesterday I visited Mother's Dumplings and it turned out to be more of Mother's DUMBblings. I tried five different kinds of the dumplings and they tasted all the same - Tasteless. The won ton soup was really bad. The only good thing is the dirt cheap price. NO WONDER.
I guess you really can't rely on people's opinions and you gotta try things yourself.
