Great fried chicken!

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... read 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!

We make a point to stop here every time we pass through, no matter what time it is. This is one of our favorite places to eat. If you haven't tried it, DO!!!! My favorite is the fish, but my husband and daughters love the shrimp. The chicken is also great. Don't miss the fried pickles!!! The seasoning on them... More

We read reviews on trip advisor and decided to stop on our way through town. First of all, the variety of the menu is impressive. Burgers, fried chicken, gumbo, and po boys are all on there. The place was packed on a Monday at lunch . Great place for a quick bite and it your run of the mill fast... More
