My husband and I eat lunch at Mama's every time we are in town. The fried chicken, mash potatoes, green beans and cobbler is the best. Great value for a great meal!

great choices fair pricing good service there are always four or five different main courses and many good sides to choose from my only problems is too many choice and to much food.

Went there for lunch. Great comfort food. Sides are seasoned not just cooked. Staff is very friendly and attentive to the customers. Great place to go!

If you're looking for some good Home Style cooking, Look no further. Portions are plentiful and very tasty. Try the Country fried steak with gravy or the Chicken Spaghetti. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. They are only open for Breakfast and Lunch.
