Great selection of hot, fresh southern cooking. Everything was restocked quickly and the food was excellent. Great choice of salads, fried chicken, fresh veg and ribs to die for. The desserts are pretty good too. Just make sure you're hungry when you visit!

This is a great place to go with friends or family. Two story buffet with much to offer. Good southern BBQ and great meatloaf. The restaurant is only open for lunch Monday - Fridays, and supper on Friday and Saturday.

Food here is delicious and cook home cooking. The only draw back they only have Pepsi produces or tea. Since I am a Coke gal and I don't like tea if I could I would give it a 4.95.

We eat here quite often and there is no better place for home cooked vegetables. Fried chicken and BBQ chicken are outstanding.

Mama Hamils must be experienced, at least once. Some people rave about it and some don't. I found it to be a good experience. I sampled almost everything, except desserts (I was stuffed by the time!) I found some items worth raving about: potato salad,...More

Do you take orders for meals to be picked up at a later date. And how much advance do you need? Can these orders be taken over the phone.

Since this is strictly a buffet I'm not sure how that would work. Best you call the restaurant with that question.
Is there a senior discount?
