“Great Tamales”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Fat Mama's was a great find in Natchez. The place is an order at the bar set-up with a colorful and lively decor. Staff was friendly and helpful. The menu is limited but what they serve they do very well. The tamales are a must; no reason to come in here if you aren't going to have some. Also recommend the roast beef and gravy poboy. They have a pretty good beer selection and frozen margaritas with a fun name.

“Fun place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

I would say this is a great place to go with friends for margaritas and to hang out, but to me the food is just OK. I had the taco soup and the vest thing I can say about it us that it was hot.

“Gotta love this place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Fat Mama's is an experience. Does it have the best food? Are they the best tamales that I have ever eaten? I must admit that the food isn't great. BUT THE PLACE ROCKS!! Try not to get Knocked Naked!! A fun place to meet friends/family and have a great time..

Very good Mexican food. I had the chili and chips. Everything was great. Drinks were also very good and prices were reasonable. I would recommend this place.
