We were staying in Aberdeen on our way home from vacation and set out to find somewhere good to eat. It seemed as if all we could find were fast food places until we saw the sign for Mamie’s Café. I’d seen it mentioned in the guide in our hotel room, and, after having traversed 3 sides of the 4-way intersection, and finding nothing else, we went in. It was early Friday evening, and, luckily, we were able to find a table. The place filled up once or twice while we were there. Mamie’s doesn’t serve liquor, but your choice of beverage is brought to the table, along with a basket of warm bread, within a minute of the time you sit down. They’re needed to keep you going, since it might be a while before your meal comes – not because service is slow, but because everything appears to be made from scratch. The beverage is refilled throughout the meal (a lemon in the glass seems to designate diet soda rather than regular). The menu is large, ranging from seafood, to Italian entrees, to burgers to enormous salads, to old-time favorites. I had liver and onions – so few places serve it that I get it wherever I can find it – and there must have been a pound of perfectly-cooked calf’s liver, smothered in onions and nice brown gravy. Our companions each got the half chicken, which was exactly that – a tender half of a chicken with mashed potatoes and a side of chicken gravy. You get a choice of 2 sides, with the potatoes counting as one of those sides.
Everything was delicious, inexpensive, and dessert was free! Without asking, our waiter wrapped up 4 servings of rice pudding for us to have later. Mamie’s is about 5 minutes fro I-95, so if you happen to be passing through, you should try to stop.
