“Country comfort food and plenty of it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Friendly staff, family style buffet in a country / farm setting. Tons southern style of cooking to fit every taste! Ribs, chicken, shrimp, catfish, plus all the salads and vegetable dishes a person could possibly want, A good dessert selection, too.

“Best Southern Food Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Mama Hamil's is real southern food at it's best. It is a buffet that has everything you could possibly want for a true southern meal. Wonderful fried chicken, ribs, meat loaf, turnip greens, mashed potatoes and gravy, to name just a few items. Homemade desserts and all the sweet tea you can drink. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Do not come to Jackson MS without driving a little way up the road to Hamil's. You will not be sorry. They serve only lunch Mon -Sat. and dinner Friday and Saturday.

“Filler Up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Go on an empty stomach and expect to be filled to the brim when you leave! I don't usually like buffets, but Mama Hamil's is only open a few hours at a time, giving no room for food to sit out and, well, you know. The place is packed with eager eaters, steaming food is continually pouring out of the kitchen, and servers are always at hand, ready to supply anything else you can fit in during your culinary adventure. If you're fixin' to have a good, southern food experience all in one place, find a plate, fill it up and grab a table!
