Good chicken, awesome biscuits!

Chicken is good, hot, and fresh. Good enough to eat every day. Then I had the biscuits. I consider myself a biscuit "expert". These are some of the best I've had. I will come back next time I'm near here just for the biscuits.

The Trip Advisor reviews had me salivating...so I veered off the main interstate to check Mama's Fried Chicken out. I ordered the manager's special of fish and shrimp with dirty rice. I was underwhelmed. The dirty rice & lemonade was very good. Next time I'll try the chicken.

This is a chain fast food place- but memorable stop all the same. Great chicken and biscuits, I would advise taking it to go so you can add your own condiments like Ranch dressing to the fried pickles, honey to the biscuits and real ketchup ( they have none of these fine items) But it is great fried chicken and...

Mama's Fried Chicken was a typical small Louisiana town experience. (Don't be scared!!) We ordered a two piece dark dinner and a two piece white dinner. The fried chicken was hot and delicious. The fried okra was dusted with some heat - but we are in Cajun country. The rice dressing (I call it dirty rice) was da bomb! Plenty... More

The food here was o-k if you like spicy food. The staff was pleasant. The portions were average. The area around the restaurant hosts some uncomfortable visitors. We traveled through this area and several patrons were strung out and one patient very much belittled the young woman behind the counter (speaking and gazing at her like a piece of meat--... More

My hubby and I had seen the billboards on Interstate 49 advertising Mama's on previous trips and I had saved in Trip Advisor. This time we were driving through at the right time to have a late lunch. It is a fairly easy off, easy on from exit 19B. There was plenty of parking and the drive through was busy.... More

I prefer the one on Landry Street. Food is consistently awesome, no matter what I get. They are always bust!
