Great down home southern food, lots of choices and quality service for a buffet. Reasonably priced for a good home cooked meal.

The buffet is good and has many choices, so everyone should be able to find something they like. They stay busy, so be prepared to stand in line a while to pay, then stand in line to fix your plate. Once we got to the table, we had quite a wait before we received our drink.

Do not go to Mama Hamils if you are on a diet. As other reviewers have pointed out this is a buffet filled with good old fashion comfort food and you will probably eat way more than you had planned. I tried a little bit of everything and really liked the fried chicken, greens, catfish and hush puppies. Many different... More

Whenever I am in Jackson, we go to this place. This is good typical Southern food that is served buffet style. You will leave this placed overstuffed. The prices are very reasonable.

Everthing is great and made fresh. We love all the vegetables and their meats are also wonderful. Can't find a better atmosphere. They also have great desserts like bread and banana pudding. If you like home cooking this is the place to go.

When in Rome... this place is an institution. We travelled 20 miles to see it, and were not disappointed. Reasonably priced ($12 for an audlt including beverage, lower for 12 and under) all you can eat of any Southern Staple you can think of, all well prepared in industrial quantities. Really good food, friendly people. The service was fine. this... More
