Having spent the day visiting a family member in the VA hospital, we were in need of some good food. Thank goodness it was a Monday and the restaurant which had been recommended to us was closed and of course, relying on the trusty reviews of other TA users, we decided to give Mama J's a try. Are we ever glad we did!
There was no wait for a table, and our server promptly brought us our beers so we could peruse the menu, which is kept under the glass-topped tables. She was great at making suggestions and assured us we could mix and match sauces. We had the wings, which were incredible, and the sweet potato fries - delish! For dinner, we had the fried and baked catfish which was mouthwatering to say the least, not a hint of fishy taste and I've never had such tasty greens; the coleslaw was just okay, but dessert, which is something I don't normally order, (and I still didn't - my brother ordered the bread pudding) was unbelievable. I really wanted to try the fried chicken, so we'll just have to make another trip back - I figure the 2 1/2 hour drive will give me time to work up an appetite. This was a memorable meal, more than reasonably priced and worth searching it out.
