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.

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.

Stopped at this local chicken shack because of all the reviews. Small restaurant, booth seating. Tiny bathrooms. Chicken, shrimp and burgers. It was really busy at lunch on a Monday. You walk up to order. We all ordered chicken and it was really good. Served with one side. Get the lemonade! Very good, quick meal.

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...

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.

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
