The buffet is good and has many choices, so everyone should be able to find something they like. They stay busy, so be prepared to stand in line a while to pay, then stand in line to fix your plate. Once we got to the table, we had quite a wait before we received our drink.

If you like good ole down home southern comfort food this is one of the best places you can find in the Jackson / Ridgeland, MS area. I have eaten here several times over the years and it never disappoints. I look forward to going back. Its high quality food for a buffet. Great value. It always packed at lunch time to plan to go early. They have everything southern, fried chicken, ribs, dumplings, collards, butter beans, and a hundred other items. This is one of those places where its easy to over eat. I love this place.

Do not go to Mama Hamils if you are on a diet. As other reviewers have pointed out this is a buffet filled with good old fashion comfort food and you will probably eat way more than you had planned. I tried a little bit of everything and really liked the fried chicken, greens, catfish and hush puppies. Many different dessert options but really enjoyed the cobbler. Drinks are included in the meal. Unfortunately, we arrived a half hour before they closed. They still had plenty of food, but our server never offered us a refill. I expected service to end at closing time but prior to that it would have been appreciated if she had checked on us. Also we had 6 people in our group and had to squeeze at a table that normally seats 4 people. I probably will go back. Just a couple words of caution -- can be difficult to find especially at night and they have limited hours.

Whenever I am in Jackson, we go to this place. This is good typical Southern food that is served buffet style. You will leave this placed overstuffed. The prices are very reasonable.
