Great food in a cool neighborhood, great for a roadtrip. A meal with two/three sides was 9 dollars so very affordable

Mama's is lunch only. Open 11A to 2:30. Finding parking can be a challenge as this is downtown old Mobile. Meters are available here and there around the block. Often very tight spaces. All in all, Your best bet for instant seating is to be...More
