Mama's has been the stop for chicken in Opelousas for years. Service is fast with a smile and the fried chicken and rice dressing speak for themselves. Also try one of the daily plate lunches. Meatball stew is a favorite. Prices are very reasonable. You...More

Mama's is nothing fancy, but well worth trying. I would go back if we lived nearby. More of a drive-thru place, but some seating inside. You have to try it to enjoy it. We had the shrimp basket and chicken basket, each came with a...More

Get a biscuit!!!! The chicken is always hot and fresh but the biscuit...all you need is the biscuit. Eat half now, half later or eat the whole thing but you gotta get a biscuit - oh, and a 2 piece dark and an extra biscuit!!!

Food was good but not great. No gravy with the chicken livers and no cocktail sauce with the shrimp but both were very tasty.

My go to spot when in Opelousas. Got to try the rice dressing. Taste like my grandmother made it. Unlike some chichen places, there chichen are huge and have weight to them. And there blend of seasoning is soooo good. Always my go to spot.

Now I have been living in Louisiana for 50 years and have traveled from one end of the state to the other. Lived in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Shreveport. There are many fine poboy places in Louisiana but Mama's is hands down the best!...More
