You'll be hard-pressed to find a buffet like this one. If you're in a home-cooking vegetable mood, a country meat/chicken/fish mood, hungry for salads, or craving desserts, Mama Hamil's is your place. You walk in, pay, pick up a plate and start filling it with whatever you want, then have a seat and eat. I'm getting hungry writing this.

This is a good value to price for a buffet. The only issue lately has been the greasiness of the chicken and items picked over during high volume lunch period. Vegetables have been either under cooked or over cooked lately. I think the ownership needs to reboot the offerings. Usually solid at lunch, faltering the last three meal periods for... More

Loved this place. Everyone one was so friendly. Our service was great. I really enjoyed the food. I even tried several things I had never eaten. Don't be overwhelmed by the crowd everything is ran extremely efficiently. Great place! Got to enjoy it with the Grandparents.

If you're ever visiting Ridgeland, you must try mama Hamils! It's food is representative of southern cuisine. Everything from the rotisserie chicken, fried chicken, catfish to the corn is superb. The servers are nice and prompt and the restaurant is always clean. Go early because there will be a crowd.

All-you-can eat buffets can be dangerous. However, the food at Mama Hamils was excellent. For us, being new to Mississippi, it was fun to sample a variety of southern cooking. The place is huge with lots of great seating. If it looks full -- as it did when we visited -- look up, there is also a ton of balcony... More

The buffet was smaller than expected, and the choices were very limited. The meal was cheap and the service was great, however. More than just chicken, liver, and gizzards need to offered.

We ate here on a Friday night. The parking lot was packed and there was a small line to enter. You pay as you enter then proceed to the buffet. One huge problem is they close at 8 pm, which makes for a tight Friday night schedule. The food was very good. The ribs were really meaty and they have... More
