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.

I just ordered a fish Po' Boy, with some fried crawfish to add to the sandwhich-it was awesome. Fast and friendly service, clean restaraunt and really yummy! I was dying to eat a po' boy in Mobile and I was defintely not disappointed. Great fries and side salad, too.

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

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
