We were told we could find really good "home cooking" at Mama's, and it is true. We got chicken fried steak with white and/or brown gravy. There were lima beans and fried okra.... seafood, beef, and pork. If you're looking for diet food, this is probably not your restaurant. If you want something cooked the way your Grandma might have done it, give Mama's a try. They're only open until 2:00, but the wait to get in was not long at all, and the service was excellent.

Great southern food. Today I had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with cream gravy, purple butter beans, collard greens, cornbread and sweet tea...YUM! Everything I've had there has been spot on...po boys are delish, and the daily specials are unbeatable. Try it\...you'll like it!

If massive portions of authentic southern cookin is what you are looking for, go to Mama's. The meatloaf lunch could actually serve two. Peas and cornbread make it right. Go there or you are missing out!

Food portions are decent until its not; Quality is good until it is not.
Eat-in experience: The food was less than luke warm, chewy pork Chops, chicken was slightly under cooked and had no flavor and veggies on side were not warm. I didn't touch my place nearly and no one noticed..
To go: Ordered a French Dip. How can you go wrong, right? Well... Meat was sliced too thick so cold in the middle; cheese was on less than half of the bread, no Au Jus at all, so completely dry. And the FF portion? 10 small, skinny pieces. Not the thick, steak fries, the little ones. And the worst part is that complaining gets you a nice dose of sarcasm from staff. I'd say, if you feel like being adventurous, take your chances.

This restaurant is in the middle of downtown. There is a fair amount of seats inside. The staff was awesome and very friendly. The food came out quickly and was delicious. The prices were very reasonable and I would definitely recommend this to any visitor to the Mobile area.
