THE VERY BEST SOUTHERN BUFFET EVER!

Mama Hamil's is Southern Buffet done PERFECTLY! All of the food is fresh and delicious. I cannot say enough good about this place. I will tell you that we have enjoyed it on about 5 occasions over the 18 months we have lived here in Mississippi. It is not an everyday thing - BUT HONEY - IT IS... read more

Mama Hamils is a top notch buffet, the food is plentiful and good. The dining area is kept up clean and the staff is top notch. I highly recommend if you are in the Jackson area, and looking for a good place to get real full, you hit Mama Hamils, you won't be disappointed.

I love this place. It has all the right items on their buffet. The food is good, plentiful and they always have everything you like. Most buffets don't offer full size ribs...not the case here. They always have ribs, fried chicken and plenty of hot and cold vegetable items. This is a family place so everyone will find something good... More

On a working trip to the nearby city of Jackson, we began to poll some locals on the best place to "do lunch". The locals warned us to "come hungry" and for good reason! I have never seen such large quantities of my favorites such as Chicken Livers, Homestyle Fried Chicken, Turnip Greens, fresh rolls,... The list goes on and... More

We visited this restraint for lunch during the week. We thought it was crowded when we got there, but when we left, we knew what crowded was. The food was good home style variety with lots of options. The buffet line was a bit confusing with no direction for the first timer. The seating is mostly long tables and sharing... More

Southern cooking at its best. The buffet was awesome. I stuffed myself on a variety of vegetable dishes: cabbage, Lima beanpotatoes, fried okra, okra and tomatoes.... Not vegan fare due to bacon seasonings. Chicken, chicken fried steak, and barbeque meats were also good. We were there with a large family so were seated at a looooong table. The waitress was...

My husband and I both love to eat here. Plenty of great food choices. Summer veggies are my favorite. Don't miss the banana pudding. I wish they would have self service drinks. Waiting for refills is a pain.

This was one of the best buffets I ever ate at. Everything on the buffet tables was delicious. This was Southern food 😋 at it's best. I am going to figure out a way to get back to this restaurant. This had to be the best southern cooking I have ever had. What a great place.
