Great funky decor and good food. I had the crabcake with rice and sauteed veggies, and it was excellent. My husband had fish tacos and enjoyed them. Recommended.

An OBX favorite. Great fish tacos and pork plate. No reservations and very hard to get in during prime season. Its worth the wait if you have the time.

Food is delicious. Staff is great. The bartenders were so nice and welcoming, really make you feel at home. No hesitation in recommending Mama's. It does get busy around 6ish, so go early.

Stopped in when it wasn't touristy busy. Very good fish tacos, beer, and mango margarita for the wife. She loved it! Tacos were good...not the best as friends said but worth getting. We will return!

My wife and I stopped in for dinner, we both had the crab cakes and they were very delicious. The fried green beans were good also. The rice was very dry and didn't bring much to the show but what the heck....it's just rice, right?...More
