When I need a good peach cobbler, fried catfish, and fried chicken, there is only one place to go. Mama Hamils has been consistently good for more than 2 decades. Personally, I would avoid Buffet at all time but I will have to make some major exception with Mama Hamils. Their food is just a good Southern home cooking and... More

We are here on the 18th (Saturday) let me tell you it was packed!!!!! Parking lot full! You walk in and pre-pay then find your own seating. Pretty tuff when it's busy! That was the only downside. Food was very good! Chicken and dumplings were A1. Kids and SO loved and said they would come back!

This is the third time I have visited. Salad bar, cold mixed salads such as kale, cucumber/tomato, corn-- you get the idea. We had choices for vegetables, cooked cabbage, rutabaga, limas, black eyed peas and more. A huge amount of food that is unlimited. My main concern (not complaint, but getting close) is the difficulty in finding seating. If I... More

This place is a local favorite if you want good food and great people eat here it buffet style but it's not buffet taste. The family that runs this place are great people and all the recipes are from the family matriarch that past away recently so if you want food cook with love try this great family restaurant

My fiancé, his immediate family, and I stopped by Mama Hamils after a long day of high school baseball and groomsmen clothes shopping! His grandparents visit often, but this was my first time. The food was delicious, however very difficult to adhere to our low carb diet lol. Oh well, everybody needs a cheat day!

For $10 you can't beat this place. Lots of vegetables, salads, meats. The bread pudding is awesome! Usually crowded but who wants to eat where nobody else does? Since it is crowded, it can get a bit loud. The service is excellent. Tables cleared quickly, drinks served and refilled quickly, empty plates removed quickly. Biggest problem is I eat too... More
