I was passing through and decided to try Mama's instead of your usual fast food joint. What an excellent choice. I ordered the three piece white meat plate with fries and my wife got the two piece with "rice dressing". The chicken reminded me of Popeye's as far as the breading,,, though it was more flavorful. Each meal came with a huge, light and flaky biscuit... goo enough that you didn't need to add butter or honey. The rice pudding was rice and ground beef... the only disappointing thing we saw there. This is definitely worth driving a few extra blocks off of I-49.

If your mama knows how to fry chicken, make dirty rice and many other great dishes, she could get a job here. They use quality ingredients, fresh oil, and it always tastes great. And you can tell by the long lines at lunch time.
