We stopped in for lunch, it was very busy, but service was quick and attentive.
Fish tacos were generous and delicious, but skip the Thai Money Bags appetizer, it was
off tasting and greasy/fried and tough.
The coconut shrimp were also pretty good.
The portions are generous and the prices fair. A must try for anyone looking for a good place to sit down and eat in the area.

We only went to Mama's for after dinner drinks but it was worth a review! They had DJ Bruce playing, and it was definitely a good time. We had some drinks and a good time with friends. We will be back!

my wife and I discovered this place (with the help of iphone enabled tripadvisor reviews) on a recent drive up the OBX from hatteras, ocracoke and then to nags area. What an amazing little find at the end of our journey. First the atmosphere is a funky cool vibe and the reception you receive on first entering is very welcoming. Best fish tacos definitely this side of the Mississippi! We bought their jarred lime sour cream and now use it all the time-- should have bought more! If you find yourselves in/around Kill Devil/Nags Def run don't walk here!!

This little restaurant has been a OBX favorite of mine for years. I was first told about this place by a few locals who said that this was the locals favorite. So that night I went and they have amazing fish tacos and much much more.
