Good salads for lunch

I dined here twice for lunch in one week. Both times I chose the market salad with grilled chicken. It is a huge salad with shredded chicken. It was great. Service was faster the first day than the second, but very friendly both times. I would return for lunch.

The always full at lunch place was worth seeking out. Be prepared to split meals. Plates are huge. Chicken gumbo soup excellent. Wanted to have homemade dessert but no room. We even had leftovers

Working downtown I've eaten here many times. Over the past 6 months the quality has gone down drastically. Because the food has become more and more tasteless - we have been eating at Mama's less and less. But, today we gave it another shot. One of my co-workers ordered fried shrimp. When it came out...people at the table next to... More

My wife and I stopped in at lunch. I had the fried fish, it was excellent. My wife had a hot ham n cheese and enjoyed it as well. The restaurant is located on a one way street, we checked around a park and quickly found parking. Great lunch.

I'm so glad we stopped here. The food was great and so was the service. I couldn't believe what good value the food was and the portions were definitely plentiful - i had to take some away! Would definitely recommend if you are in Mobile.

We visited on a Wednesday lunchtime and really enjoyed our meals. They had a selection of meals for only $9 which also included 2 sides. The portions were big & the food was really tasty - so great value! Our server was really friendly & the service was quick.

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!
