Plate lunches can't be beat!!

Dined here and lunch plate specials were so tasty and seasoned just right. I had smothered pork chops with mashed potatoes and two other sides. My husband had the fried chicken, which was not heavily breaded but nice crust. Not pricey and great fast service.

Love love love this small little cafe in the heart of Mobile. We happened upon it when in town for one of the Mrdi Gras parades. The staff was welcoming and knowledgable. Friendly to us as tourists. The portions were huge and food very tasty.

Good food and good service at a reasonable price. Portions are reasonably sized. They do have a full service bar if you desire a hard beverage. This is definitely a seafood place. Would stop again.

My husband and I spent a day in Mobile and stopped in Mama's for a late lunch. Good southern comfort food. Service was good, too.

I have loved Mama's on Dauphin for years. If you are looking for a great noon time meal at a reasonable price then stroll in for a meat and three or two a veggie..........but the greens will a chunk of pork in there somewhere.

I was skeptical about this small restaurant and its food but I had the chicken and dumplings and it was awesome! You can't find many good food serving restaurants in Mobile but this is one!

We wanted a nice, local, place for lunch that was NOT a chain. All the reviews pointed us toward Mama's and now we know why. It was fairly easy to find, but plan on paying for parking downtown. We parked around the block at the park and it wasn't too expensive. Plan on a little wait, as this place is... More

Working in downtown Mobile I have eaten lunch at most of the downtown restaurants at some point. There are a number of good lunch spots downtown but my two favorites are Cafe 219 which I recently reviewed, and Mama's on Dauphin... Mama's lives up to its name as their home cooking is almost as good as my mama's. The portions... More
