We went to Mama Hamill's at the suggestion of family. $10 for all you can eat and drink. The food was so good, especially the ribs. They grows some of their own vegetables and everything appears to be homemade. Next time we're in the area.

Mama Hamil's is a must-do eatery... All-U-Can-Eat Soul Food lunch buffet for only $11 bucks, and the flavor of the food is for a lack of a better word, "SUPERB!"

I've never been disappointed with eating at Mama Hamils. Unless you're familiar with how a busy buffet line works then stay at home out of danger, or come during the week day because you will fear for your life once the fried fish drops. I...More
