“Average but seems quite popular”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Food was ok for the most part. Our group ate there twice, first time was better that second. Had a large roast being carved, also a ham, on our second trip which made the buffet more expensive. Both were dry and tough. Fried chicken is very good and everyone enjoyed the potato puffs on the first trip. Average salad bar, canned veggies, some good desserts.

“Average food, good crowds”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

You can't beat the country style menu for seniors and lots of local folks but inexpensive buffets are not my cup of tea.

“Certain days?”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Most of the time Mama's house is good with a good selection and price. The past two times eating there, the food was off flavored. Don't know it they changed cooks, management, etc?

“Worth driving 2 hours to go back.”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

A friend suggested we stop while driving through on business. I plan to take my wife and friends back because it was clean, delicious, had a good variety of quality items that tasted truly home prepared. To top it off, I was treated like family though it was my first time there.
