“I visited the Mama's Famous on 22nd and...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2010 via mobile

I visited the Mama's Famous on 22nd and Kolb one afternoon for lunch. I've had their pizza but was looking to get a hero today due to a friend telling me how amazing they were. I got the Combo hero with ham, salami, etc and it was amazing. Its served laying across two throw away plates and covers both of them. The bread was very soft and chewy with a crisp outter crust. My only complaint was the 40 minutes it took them to make it. I was the only person there and I ordered a sandwich. Not their famous 50 something inch family pizza. Increase production time, increase revenue!!!

“Better than chain pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

Not spectacular- kind of limp, mushy crust. My biggest problem with this place is there is no table service of any kind. If you need a drink refill you have to go stand in line with all the people ordering dinner while your pizza gets ice cold. Ridiculous!

“Don't order delivery”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2008

Management and service are terrible - pizza isn't good enough to outweigh being treated so poorly.
