Overall food is satisfactory - fried chicken is good - portions are fair to satisfactory - prices are too high for what you get

Excellent food and great service. When I ask my husband where he wants breakfast he say Mama Jeans! So in the car and 35 miles later, worth the drive. Pancakes are out of this world.

Love to go here when I'm in town. They have the best fried chicken! I also LOVE their breakfast. Definitely won't regret going here for lunch or breakfast.

I work for a small local business and the owner buys lunch on Saturdays and insists on ordering from this swill bucket. I've tried most of the menu and can tell you there isn't one thing that passes as food. Gross is a huge understatement....More

My wife and I visited Mama Jeans this morning. Nice crowd of very hungry guests. The waitresses are all fast, efficient & friendly. Mid priced range comfort food that satisfies.

I loved this home style cooking. I ate at the counter, and I enjoyed a large country style breakfast. The place smelled like Grandma's kitchen, and there was a quiet rumble of conversation. The food was fresh and hot.

Great breakfast buffet but you can also order from the menu. First come, first table available. Local hangout. Good food and friendly service.

It'seems about a 15 minutes drive with traffic. They have a lunch and breakfast buffet but are closed for dinner. The breakfast buffet is about $8 and the lunch $11.
