I ordered livers and chicken to try them both. I paid for the large liver and it looked like they had cut livers into small pieces to fry. Then they counted out the 15 small pieces and sold them as 15 livers. The chicken was good. It was not greasy and well fried. I ordered a three piece white. Got... More

We had this catered in for a family reunion and it did not disappoint. The chicken was juicy with a nice crust and good flavor.

Their chicken is really good and seasoned just right. Anything you order there is good. I love their fries and their fried pickles are AWESOME! They have so much variety on their menu that it can be difficult to order sometimes because everything sounds so good. They're prices are reasonable, and you get decent portions for your money.

Chicken is pretty good, sometimes a little greasy. Needs to give discounts to retirees . Fried seafood is in thick batter. Rice dressing is usually good. Biscuits are great and big

We enjoyed our lunch at Mama's Fried Chicken. We ordered two chicken dinners - a 2-piece and 3-piece. Each dinner comes with one side. The only problem was that the 3 piece had larger pieces of chicken and a large buttery role. I also enjoyed the fresh squeezed lemonade.

Awesome place! Great biscuits, tasty rice dressing, & fabulous fried chicken! The chicken salad, homemade lemonade, & gizzards are great too! There's always a line at the drive thru. Try it!

The corn nuggets were awesome! My family really enjoyed the shrimp and fish sandwiches. My hamburger though wasn't anything special and seemed like a cafeteria burger, but it was edible. The place was clean and the staff was friendly.
