haven't tried every item, but really enjoy eating here. Love the homemade taste of their burgers. Gotta try the biscuits! Slurp! Awesome fish and catfish baskets! Enjoy the chicken tenders with the homemade sauce! Rice dressing is awesome! You won't be disappointed. They work fast and hard to serve you, but this place is usually packed, so be prepared to...

This place lived up the reviews! Excellent homemade food. Good sized portions. Try the fresh squeezed lemonade. (They charge $.90 for lemonade refills) Everything we had was excellent from the chicken to the crab burger. Onion rings super yummy. I only wish I lived closer so I could go back again!

Great fried chicken and seafood....shrimp boat is huge! Also great homemade lemonade. Central location in Opelousas, and the staff were very nice. They also do great wing platters which are outstanding for tailgating appetizers.

If you are looking for some good food just like your mother would make, visit Mama's!!! The fried pork chop and mashed potatoes are a must have!!!

I'm currently in Opelousas, Louisiana for Mardi Gras. I came across this fried chicken joint and loved the food. Great service and the food is so flavorful. Would recommend to anyone in town looking for a quick meal!

Love their chicken tender sandwich as well as their fried chicken. Their shrimp po-boys are good also, even though they are not like the traditional New Orleans ones.
