The place was very busy but the service is fast and the food is good. I ordered the country fried steak and it was well flavored, the gravy was awesome and my sides were tasty as well (squash casserole, and collard greens) My cornbread was a little over cooked for my liking but it was tasty. Now that I work... More

Got daily special. Meatloaf was pretty good. Wife got hamburger. Nothing spectacular. Seems like local lunch spot. Would go there if I lived there.

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.
