“Great place for quick food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went into this restaurant with no expectations, but left loving it. It is a no frills bar with quick food and strong drinks. They always had "tropical" music like Jimmy Buffett playing and a festive atmosphere. The food was good and came out almost as quickly as you ordered it. Very much enjoyed this place.

“Creative and fun eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Mama's has it's own Southern vibe. The decor is simple and colorful. You even get to keep your plastic drinking cups as souvenirs. The tamales are excellent Mississippi Delta style tamales and are the best tamales I have ever had. They have plenty of beers on tap and the staff is friendly, helpful and colorful.

“Tasty Treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We enjoyed the tamales and margarita's at Fat Mama's. We arrived a bit late in the evening, but the the staff was still very gracious (wouldn't happen in Kansas!). The outdoor patio has a great atmosphere for hanging out with friends.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Fat Mama's is great! The food is awesome, atmosphere is cool too! The "Knock you naked margarita's" are wonderful, get the 22oz. with an extra shot! The gringo pie is really good. Our secret is get a dozen tamales, side of chili and a side of chips and salsa--perfect combo!
