We were in Mobile and decided to try Mama's on Dauphin. It is a very busy restaurant, and seems very popular. Servings are large. I had ordered the Po'boy with shrimp and my husband ordered the steak with mashed potatoes. The steak was deep fried, but he enjoyed it. My shrimps were battered and deep fried as well. The reason...

Atmosphere is somewhere between a cafe and a country diner. The dishes are home cooked southern and the prices are real cheap (under $10). Great fun sides: my dinner was a chicken fried steak with mashed and gravy and I got a side of turnip greens (which were the best part of the meal) and a side of butterbeans. Their... More

This is a homestyle place that serves comfort food. Had lunch and was very impressed. For the price paid the food can't be beat. This place was full and it wasn't lunch time yet which told me all I needed to know.

I stopped in here today because it was cold and sleeting and walking farther down Dauphin Street was not something I wanted to do. I was seated immediately and someone took my drink order as soon as I sat down. The daily specials (Friday) struck me as a little strange because most places have all seafood on Fridays; Mama's had... More

I had the fried shrimp po boy sandwich with sides of mac and cheese and collard greens. The sandwich and collard greens were exceptional; the mac and cheese was tasty but a bit dry. Iced tea was tasty. I was there during lunch and the place was busy, even so I got my food reasonably promptly. The waitress was fun... More

As we walked historic Mobile downtown, we found this wonderful restaurant that gave us a very happy experience. We had a terrific lunch complete with corn bread, gumbo, and iced tea. The service was very friendly, great food, wonderful ambience...we really liked the place! No strangers walked through these doors! If you are near Mobile, check out this destination restaurant....

Outstanding service, food, and value. Lots of food and very tasty. Service was great all for a low price. In an artsy area so a nice walk after eating I would definitely go there again

I had read reviews on Mama's prior to going to Mobile. It was better than good. The food was excellent and the service was great. It taste like home cooking by far. It's a must go when visiting Mobile.

You've found yourself in downtown Mobile near the Bankhead Tunnel and it's about lunchtime. Fear Not! An excellent lunch is available over on Dauphin Street. Mama's On Dauphin is, without a doubt in this reviewers mind, "The Best Lunch In Mobile." You'll find Mama's there on Dauphin between Joachim and Conception. Bienville Square is just East of the restaurant and... More
