Incredible Family style dinner

My wife and I don't do too many casual, order at the counter type of restaurants, but this is our absolute favorite food spot in Raleigh. FWIW, we do have a special fondness for Peruvian chicken, but we bring friends here all the time and everyone has raved about it. This is essentially a fast... read more

I have only eaten takeout, so I can't tell about the restaurant itself. My experience with their takeout has been excellent. The chicken is deliciously flavored and perfectly cooked. I love their black beans and plantains. Based on the food I have had, I would definitely recommend trying Mami Nora's

After seeing "North Carolina Weekend" tv show featuring "Foodie " Expert and writer, Bob Garner review it, I had to try it myself. I was not disappointed with this different Rotisserie chicken seasoned in a special marinade and roasted in a wood charcoal oven. It was amazing. It's great to try new sides. I have been twice and my favorite... More

Ordered the quarter chicken - dark meat. Boy, do these folks know how to roast a chicken! Moist, flavorful, and good to the last nibble! My sides were an excellent chopped cole slaw and a generous although boring cup of black beans. I dumped some of their yellow sauce in the beans and that spiced it up a bit. My... More

It's a great chicken joint and that's about it. Everyone raves about this place and swears it is the greatest food in planet earth. All though it was delicious, very very fresh, and fairly priced, I am still not super crazy impressed. They have a great limited menu and run weekly specials, the place is always packed but they are... More

My family stopped here on the way out of town. It was filled to capacity, but we were able to find a seat quickly. We ordered the jerk chicken special, which came with fried yucca. The meal was fantastic! I definitely want to go back!

Was tasty, cheap and quick...just what you want when you are on the road! Fries were good. Plantains carmelized but a little burnt. Chicken moist and delicious. Could have been maintained a little better.

Looking for a place to eat close to my hotel i found this Mami Nora's. I had the chicken breast with coleslaw and corn. Great tasting chicken with tasty slaw! I categorize this place as a healthy fast food place to get roasted chicken. Will definitely come back when I visit Raleigh again!

Mami Nora's is the place to go when you want real "home-cooked" food without the hassle of cooking it yourself! Their specialty is rotisserie chicken cooked by charcoal grilling which produces a moist and flavorful inside and perfectly browned outside! I don't eat a lot of meat/poultry but I LOVE their chicken. I always order mine with a side of... More
