HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Don't make a mess in the kitchen. Instead, take mom to one of these best brunch spots, as voted on by ABC-13 viewers!

Brennan's of Houston

Unfortunately, the most popular brunch spot is already booked for Mother's Day. But lucky for you, the executive chef has shared some of his recipes with Eyewitness News. If you don't get it quite right, perhaps take mom to Brennan's brunch another weekend!

Rainbow Lodge

If you've never been to Rainbow Lodge, imagine a 100 year old log cabin restaurant on an acre of grounds right in the middle of Houston! Celebrate Mother's Day there with a three course meal for $49 per person. You can choose from five appetizers, five entrees, and three different desserts. There are also $2 mimosas!

Downtown or Kemah Aquarium

If you want a side of something to see and do with your Mother's Day brunch, take mom to the Downtown or Kemah Aquarium. Viewers say it has been a big hit with their families in the past! They will be serving a buffet brunch, and reservations are required.

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse

Pappas is open for lunch and dinner on Mother's Day with a special menu for mom's special day. For $75 per person they are serving filet and lobster with mashed potatoes and green beans. Call for reservations!

Baba Yega Cafe

Baba Yega's Sunday brunch might be the best deal in town. It's $25 for all you can eat, and you won't leave wanting anything else. This converted bungalow in Montrose has several indoor and outdoor options.

Cadillac Bar

There are two Cadillac Bar locations - one in the Heights and the other in Kemah. There are over 60 items on the Mother's Day buffet menu. Adults are $28.99, seniors are $18.99, and children ages 3 to 12 are $9.99. Kids 2 and under eat free!

Union Kitchen

The Union Kitchen is serving up specialties on its Mother's Day menu. Lobster and crab cake benedict, prime rib, and stuffed pork chops are just a few of the items to choose from. There are reservations still available at all three locations - Bellaire, Memorial, and Kingwood.

Quattro at the Four Seasons

The festive Mother's Day brunch at the Four Seasons restaurant will have over 70 items to choose from. The buffet is $92 per adult and $39 per child ages 6 to 12. Children ages 5 and under eat free. If you're thinking brunch at the Four Seasons is out of the budget, we've found an online deal that will help you out for any other weekend! Unlimited Sunday brunch and beverages for two is $72 right now on Travelzoo. The deal is not good on holidays, so maybe you can treat mom another time!

Backstreet Cafe

There will be live jazz music to serenade mom at Mother's Day brunch at Backstreet Cafe. Their prix fixe menu is $48 per person and $15 per child, but includes a selection of five appetizers, seven entrees, and six desserts. There's everything from brioche French toast to crawfish risotto.

Max's Wine Dive

Max's Wine Dive has two locations inside the loop - one on Fairview in Montrose and the other on Washington. They have lots of decadent brunch options for your sweet mom. From the red velvet pancakes or Crme Brle battered French toast to their famous Southern fried chicken and waffles. Sign up for their rewards program and you'll get a free $10 dessert on your next visit!
