Found Mama's on Tripadvisor and decided to drop by. This is one of the better places I have eaten in a while. I decided to try the Friday special, which was country fried steak and mashed potatoes with gravy. The meal was awesome, the service was great and the overall experience was very enjoyable. Would definitely go back!

This is a great place to eat and I have NEVER had a bad meal. Soul food that is fast and tastes great? can't happen in Mobile? WRONG! Mama's is worth the walk! Get yourself the meatloaf and get ready to get full and happy!

Yummy southern cooking! Awesome candied yams! Country fried steak and gravy! I am getting hungry just thinking about this place! Wish they could be open at nights and on weekends!

I dined here twice for lunch in one week. Both times I chose the market salad with grilled chicken. It is a huge salad with shredded chicken. It was great. Service was faster the first day than the second, but very friendly both times. I would return for lunch.

The always full at lunch place was worth seeking out. Be prepared to split meals. Plates are huge. Chicken gumbo soup excellent. Wanted to have homemade dessert but no room. We even had leftovers

Working downtown I've eaten here many times. Over the past 6 months the quality has gone down drastically. Because the food has become more and more tasteless - we have been eating at Mama's less and less. But, today we gave it another shot. One of my co-workers ordered fried shrimp. When it came out...people at the table next to... More

My wife and I stopped in at lunch. I had the fried fish, it was excellent. My wife had a hot ham n cheese and enjoyed it as well. The restaurant is located on a one way street, we checked around a park and quickly found parking. Great lunch.

I'm so glad we stopped here. The food was great and so was the service. I couldn't believe what good value the food was and the portions were definitely plentiful - i had to take some away! Would definitely recommend if you are in Mobile.

We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime and really enjoyed our meals. They had a selection of meals for only $9 which also included 2 sides. The portions were big & the food was really tasty - so great value! Our server was really friendly & the service was quick.

Mama's is a staple lunch spot for Mobile's downtown office workers. The place is always packed before noon - there's daily lunch specials and the favorites will run out. My staple orders are the Fried Green Tomatoes and Wednesday's special: Fried Pork Chops or Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
