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

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

Nothing fancy here, just a real Southern "plate lunch". Service was good, and food was delivered to my table very quickly. It's easy to see why this is a local favorite.
