We are new to this area and noticed there were always a lot of cars in the lot. We were seated right away. I asked for iced coffee and they don't do it. My husband asked if the corned beef hash was homemade and the...waitress assured him that it was.The menu is very basic, nothing creative, just standard breakfast fare. The food arrived and we were both very disappointed. My eggs were overcooked and the home fries were cold. My husband 's corned beef hash was straight out of the Dinty Moore can, definitely not homemade. There are many breakfast restaurants in the area, we won't be returning to this one.More

We went there on Easter Sunday because every other place we found was an hour wait. The people were friendly and the food was good home cooking.

Unfortunately after 10 plus years of eating and enjoying Mama Jeans I will not be able to eat there anymore. There lack of respect for Science and the pandemic we are in the middle of is abhorrent. Not requiring patrons to wear mask, not seating...the restaurant with appropriate distances between booths. Not requiring patrons to wear mask while hovering over a buffet talking to employees that are dipping the food that ALL have to eat out of is just irresponsible. Seeing every employee with 2 exceptions wearing the mask incorrectly pulled down exposing their noses was unreal.. There lack of concern for their fellow man has unfortunately made it so I will never feel the same about this restaurant regardless of how much I will miss the food..More

Hand sanitizer was available upon entry. Not all employees were wearing masks. I had the hamburger steak which was very good. I had a six year old with me and we were disappointed at the lack of a kids' menu for anything other than breakfast.

Good lunch/breakfast stop. Lunch hours offer cafeteria-style dining or table service. Nothing fancy, just good food & fast, courteous service.

Good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. I had basic breakfast of 2 eggs, sausage, biscuit and hash browns. Biscuit was excellent as they had grilled it. Hubby had the pork bbq which he said was good.

It'seems about a 15 minutes drive with traffic. They have a lunch and breakfast buffet but are closed for dinner. The breakfast buffet is about $8 and the lunch $11.
