Mama's is located in downtown Mobile, AL on Dauphin St. If you like old fashioned southern cooking, you'll love this place! Their hours are what they'll decide they'll be from day to day, but usually open until at least 2pm for lunch, sometimes longer. Large choice of fresh, home style vegetables, with daily specials, or order from the menu. Meat... More

Unabashedly good country cooking. What we used to call a "meat and three", sometimes called a 'plate lunch'. Think fried chicken, meatloaf, country fried steak, mac & cheese you get the idea. The place is high energy, mostly because the folks (customers) are trying to get in and out for lunch hours. The wait staff does the best not to... More

The place is small but the food is wonderful. The vegetables and cornbread are like homemade. You can tell the food is great because they definitely have a lunch hour rush!! If you are looking for a true southern meal...this is your place!! Prices are great. Service is great.

We were looking for quick and not fast food type. So basically looking for a blue-plate home cooked type of cafe'. I think we found it. I had chicken & dumplings, fried okra & cornbread. It was good and the fried okra was crispy and not greasy. The dumplings were pretty good too. It looks like they have a few... More

This was a great place to stop for lunch. Service was quick and the prices are fair. I had a chicken salad sandwich with fried okra and candied yams, all had a lot of flavor and were satisfying.

Large portions of great southern cooking. We came for lunch on a Monday. The place was crowded and we now know why. We waited about 2 min for a table. Despite the crowds they had plenty of servers working as a team to get everyone fed. The only disappointing thing was the Fried Chicken special was sold out by the... More

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
