Very popular place!

My first visit here and found that buffet was a little confusing....Not bad, just me!! At any rate the food was great (mostly good old home cooking.) I will definitely return at a less busy time. It is really enjoyed by a lot of locals sitting at the table with different people but lots of fun... read more

Extensive buffet, lots of delicious down-home Southern cooking! Something for everyone. Large variety of vegetables and meats. Don't expect anything fancy: you walk in the door, pay for your meal, take a plate, serve yourself, and find yourself a seat! Seating is available upstairs (not quite as crowded up there, but you have to be able to navigate carrying your... More

Busy place! Very good buffet -- lots of choices for anyone! It is a fast buffet - two lines even if you think it is really busy - the line moves along just fine. Excellent choices of salad, veggies, meat, dessert! You will like it a lot.

One of our favorite places to eat at when we travel to the Jackson, MS area! Go hungry, because there is tones of food on the buffet and the food will not disappoint! Some of the best sweet tea, too. A great atmosphere for a big southern style buffet...staff is friendly, sit at large tables, and pitchers of tea when... More

This is one of the best southern comfort buffets you will find. You will need a nap when you leave here. Good food. Affordable. Typically very crowded at lunch and it can be difficult to find seating. They charge a little too much for children 3-7 years since my 3 year old will probably eat one bite of food. Also... More

This place use to be so friendly ! Now other than when I payed , the whole staff was only into it for the money . I found out that they employ criminals who are paying off fines . Waters who will ask you to get your own drinks and then ask you why you didn't tip . The manager... More

I love the dressing from Mama Hamil's. the veggies on the buffet are ok. I don't like the chicken because it is always tough. I like the peach cobbler and I LOVE their southern sweet tea!

We feel like they always have all the foods we like the best when we go to Hamel's. We used to go when they were located in the little cabin & the atmosphere & food was top notch & it hasn't changed when they moved to the bigger location right behind the original cabin. Be sure to say "Hello" to... More
