I found Mama J's on tripadvisor and yelp. Both places rate it at nearly 5 stars. The food does not disappoint. If you want some Southern home cooking, you will have a hard time beating this place. The decor is great, the service is amazing, and the food is legit.
The catfish bites were amazing. They were better than some of the fish frys I have been to at a lake with fresh fish. The fried chicken was great. The country fried steak was excellent. The collard greens were authentic and tasty. The large selection of home-made cakes was also very good. I recommend the sweet tea if you want some cloyingly sweet Southern goodness.
Warning - it is not the best part of town. Park near the restaurant if possible.
