I wish I had taken pictures. We were in the area with a group of 51 students, out of the 51, 37 chose Mama's plus several of the chaperones. We had called ahead, they didnt take reservations but the recommended coming around 12:30. Though it...was packed, the wait was very brief. I ordered the chicken tenders grilled & blackened, squash casserole, & a side salad with homemade ranch. It was delicious!! The portions and price were perfect, I would definitely recommend you try them out!! & to top it off, the kids did a "flash mob" & sang one of there songs and they welcomed it (& didnt kick us out) 😉😊More

Everything was delicious and the wait staff was super attentive. We especially loved the squash casserole, fried okra and green beans.

We spend a lot of time in Mobile and are always on the lookout for new places to try. My wife was looking up restaurants while we were on the road and found this place. A lot of positive reviews and a menu filled food...I love so we decided to give it a try. We both ordered the chopped steak with extra gravy, side salads,and green beans. We also ordered mac-n-cheese and fried okra and because I was also in the mood for fried chicken we ordered that, too. The first problem encountered was the food came out way too fast from the kitchen; heck, we didn't even have our salads yet. The chopped steaks didn't come with the extra gravy we requested when placing the order, the fried okra was cold, the mac-n-cheese was the blandest we ever had, and the chicken was greasy, lukewarm, and looked like it had been sitting for a while. If they are keeping the food on a steam table they need to crank that thing all the way up to keep the food hot.More

Great country cooking with excellent service. All four of us had something different and enjoyed our meals. Server was knowledgeable and helpful. The best part of the meal was the fried green tomatoes! Would definitely go back.

While walking around downtown Mobile decided to drop into one of my favorite places that I hadn't been to in a long while. I had the shrimp and grits with fried ocra and the cucumber salad. Walked away stuffed and happy. I was very lucky...because there was a parking place available on Dauphin Street directly outside the restaurant.More

Nice little restaurant with southern cooking. The chicken and dumplings were great. The gravy on the mashed potatoes was also good. For desert had the banana pudding which was very creamy. Great first time visiting here.

Ok. So this was a spur of the moment decision to grab lunch. This was the best homecooking fried chicken, red beans and rice and greens lunch I’ve had in a very, very long time. Eat here if you can. You will not be disappointed.

Mardi Gras going on. Probably very hard to find a spot near the restaurant. You’ll have to walk a few blocks for sure, maybe more!
