I enjoyed pretty much everything about my visit to Mama Hamil's. The setting was great. There were a lot of people in the restaurant, but I was not crowed out. The food presentation was great! Everything was in one location. I didn't have to walk all over the building to get food. The food was absolutely delicious. I will certainly... More

Lost of country cooking at this restaurant…way more than you can eat. While it is not as good as it was in the small log cabin years ago when I lived there, the new placed seats hundreds and it was busy, but quick. It's a bit more industrialized and I'm sure there are a few veggies out of cans, but... More

You will not find a better buffett, at a better price, with better people. Always busy but the line moves fast. Many vegetables to choose from. Good meat selections. And your tea glass stays full. Great job

We kept hearing about this place in Madison called Mama Hamil's. We finally decided to give it a try and boy, were we hooked!!! Although we live an hour away, there are a lot of times that we will eat here once a week!!! Mama Hamil's is a southern style buffet at an extraordinarily reasonable price! For supper, it's $25...

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.

If you like good ole down home southern comfort food this is one of the best places you can find in the Jackson / Ridgeland, MS area. I have eaten here several times over the years and it never disappoints. I look forward to going back. Its high quality food for a buffet. Great value. It always packed at lunch... More
