Fried Green Tomatoes & Lunch Specials

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.

Overpriced cold food. Brought it to the servers attention, no help there. 30.00 for two to eat lunch.Cornbread was good, butter Beans were good. Chicken fried steak was cold and awful.Was given free banana pudding for compensation. Pudding was great! So, if you're in the mood for some banana pudding...run, don't walk, but if you want Mama's cooking, ask your... More

Place is small and casual but don't let it fool you, everything was amazing! It was busy lunch time but we were served promptly and always had full drinks. Chicken salad was great, candied yams were delicious! If you love good southern food and great service do not miss this one!

Lunch here just makes you proud to be a southerner Pork chops, chicken fried steak, and chicken and dumplings were some of the daily specials. The options on vegetable sides included Mac and cheese (did I mention we are in the south?). A super friendly, efficient staff rounded out the experience. Y'all go try it!

We chose this place based on its proximity to where we parked and could walk to easily. I knew it also had good reviews but then so did many of its neighbors. This was a good choice. This is a very tall and narrow place with what looks like original tin ceiling tiles, very bright. We seated ourselves, though I... More

Water Street salad with blackened chicken one of my favorites. Veggie plate with mac and cheese, sweet potatoes and blackeyed peas and cornbread also on my... More

Great home cooking style food every time I travel. Even the burgers are excellent here, and remember to try the gumbo!

We stopped at the I-10 Visitor Center on entering Alabama on our way to New Orleans. We wanted to see a bit of Mobile but weren't spending more than a few hours; we were particularity interested in lunch. It was suggested that we visit the old fort which was very easy to get to from the interstate and visit Mama's... More

We were down for the Mardi Gras last week and decide to walk down Dauphin street. The smell of home cook food was filling the street from Mama's. We couldn't help ourselves we had to go in. The smell of fresh greens cooking filled the room. They had something for everyone. My daughters ordered chicken fingers and they were homemade... More
