All I can say is "Fried Green Tomato BLT"! Mama's is fabulous. The food is fabulous as well as our wonderful waitress! Be sure to try the banana pudding!

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.

We decided to follow a recommendation and give Mama's a shot for lunch. Our waitress was prompt and attentive and the food came out quickly. I ordered a crawfish po-boy, my wife a chicken salad sandwich, and we shared a plate of fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. My po-boy was pretty good but the sides were the most impressive....

I had lunch at Mama's on Dauphin for lunch. I had the shrimp po-boy and another had the crawfish po-boy. They were very good. It was a busy place for lunch.
