Mama Hamils

Buffets are always nice because they let you get a variety of different foods for one flat price. That way, you can try a little bit of everything. And at Mama Hamil’s—this year’s winner for Best Local Fried Chicken, Lunch Counter or Buffet, and Soul Food—that is exactly what you can get. The main dishes include meatloaf on 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; red beans and rice on Tuesday and Thursday; its acclaimed fried chicken Monday-Saturday. Mama Hamil’s also has southern sides such as fried okra, turnip greens and barbecue beans; desserts such as banana and bread puddings; and for those who want something a little lighter, Mama Hamil’s also has dishes such as cucumber and tomato salad, and a California kale salad.

The restaurant has catering options, and a private event room. For more information, visit —Amber Helsel
