This is a little hidden gem! The line was long but they really know what they are doing here! Took less than 5 minutes for one of the best double cheeseburgers I’ve ever had! Supper cheap, great fries, and burger was cooked perfect. Staff was...friendly and the place was clean. I’d highly recommend you dropping by this place if you are in the area!More

but when the virus hit they closed down inside dining. Why you would kiss off so many customers is beyond me but they did. They seem to have no interest in returning to this.

I have been enjoying the shakes and malts at Mama Burger for years now, and I can attest that they are not only the best shakes and malts in Flagstaff, but they are some of the best shakes and malts I have ever had ANYWHERE!...(And I am 63 years old - so I have had my share of shakes and malts). The only thing bad I could possibly say about them is that they are just too darn small! - And they only offer the one size.☹️ Every time I go through their drive-through, I have to order 2 of them because I know the first one will be gone before I even drive home! I have heard others as well say they would gladly pay more for a larger size. I gave Mama Burger a 4-star rating based on their shakes and malts alone. Had they offered them in a larger size, they would have received a solid 5-star rating. So, Mama Burger - If you’re listening - How about giving your loyal customers what they want!? - Please?More

I loved this place so much last time I was in Flagstaff I ate here twice and was so looking forward to eating here again. But, it appears this time they have lost a step. Maybe it was because you could not dine in and...by the time we found a park to eat at the food was luke warm and the malt was melting. In any event we will try in a couple of years when we visit again. Hopefully I can rate a 5 again next time.More

Good food, reasonable price, friendly staff. Only problem is the wait, is always overcrowded. Maybe time to franchise?

This was my son’s favorite place to eat on vacation. We had the 66er and it was very good. He also had the root beer shake which he loved. He voted it as the best burger hes ever had.

We had two double burgers and fries. The guacamole burger and the san gabriel burger. The fries were lukewarm and terrible. The burgers are small and they were so overcooked they were barely edible. Long line of cars and very slow. Nice workers who were...friendly and courteous.More

We just left the hospital for a visit and we’re hungry. Very long line in cars but don’t let that discourage you. They’re very fast courteous and the food was excellent. The young man that waited on us have been there for six years and...he was absolutely superb I cannot remember his name.More

This isn't based on the food, location or ambiance, it's purely based on the unwillingness of the workers wanting to do their job. I understand that there may be a curfew in place, but here- call in at 7:08 pm to place an order to...expedite the process. 2 shakes, a burger meal and a grilled cheese sandwich. Kayla(?) answers the phone, and tells me that their policy is not to take phone in orders a half hour before they close, and they close at 7:30. Ok. But in the background, a boy yells "Tell them we're closed." Yeah, I'm not going to show up and risk my food being sabotaged because the kids that are working don't feel like working. I don't think I've ever given a one star review, but here it is. Sorry, Mama.More

We stopped here on our way back to Phoenix. We sat on the patio, facing the snowy mountain. It was a great view. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the Cholula Jack burger, great flavors. I thought the cost was very reasonable. We...will definitely return on our next trip.More

We were about to head out of Flagstaff to drive back to Phoenix for our flight home. While stopped at the gas station, across the street, I noticed the Mama Burger restaurant. The parking lot was full, so that was an indicator to me the...food must be really good. We were hungry, so we decided to eat there instead of waiting until we arrived back in Phoenix. We were so glad we ate at Mama Burger. We chose to create our own burger to customize our toppings. Our burgers were sooooo DELICIOUS! They were juicy and flavorful. We also loved the handcut fries. I don't drink milkshakes anymore, but everyone drinking them around us seemed to have been really enjoying them. The restaurant and dining area is really small and packed tight. The lines for ordering inside and the drive through were nonstop the entire time we were there.More

The food here is delicious, shakes, fries and burgers. The ambiance was a little off putting, crowded and kind of dirty.

Easy to locate as you pass right by it coming from the Grand Canyon or snowbowl into town. Really good food, great milkshakes. The dining area is crowded and less than desirable, but the food is worth the wait.

Tasty burgers and fries at a great price. Because of this you may have s wait during peak hours. However outside seating is also available.
