The food was delicious. However, they ran out of cornbread dressing which came with my meal. So, I had to ask for a replacement side. Overall, ok service but really good meal.

True southern flavors throughout. We had a variety of items for our family of six. Friendly service and great food. Price point is right on as well. Nice downtown setting.

I tried this restaurant out on a Thursday and had baked chicken and dressing. Omg!!! It was delicious. It's REAL country food, not Cracker Barrel pretend country food. It was a nice little place and I'm already planning to go back next week to eat!

The wait was quite long, and literally out the door when we arrived shortly after they had opened. It was well worth it as the food was delicious. The wait staff was very kind and attentive.

This is a local favorite. If you want a table, get there early. Have the jambalaya. It is a fairly cheap place to eat, but it is small and very crowded.

My wife and I were in Mobile, AL for a summer vacation and found this little gem not far from our hotel, The Battle House. It is a meat and vegetable place and the food was great. Service was good and attentive.

My husband and I recently had lunch at Mama's and the food was very good. If you like Southern cooking, you'll enjoy visiting Mama's. The menu has a great selection and the specials change daily.
