Great find on a road trip through LA. Chicken,mashed potatoes, crab cake, fried pickles-all great. Will make this a stop any time we're passing by this way.

I eat here often. The chicken is seasoned well and there are other menu items like the crab burger or seafood platter that are delicious. Even the fried oreos will keep u coming back.

Better than the average fried chicken place. My husband and I both had the fresh fish sandwich, onion rings and coleslaw. Good size portions. They also have a drive-through if you want. Not our thing.

The food makes up for the lack of atmosphere. We had the 2 piece chicken combo. I got onion rings, my dad mashed... More

There are certainly plenty of fried chicken outlets just about everywhere, but Mama's distinguishes itself by the quality of its food and the family/community atmosphere and staff. The chicken is consistently flavorful and moist, but not overly spicey, so you can add hot sauce or other spices, if you want, but aren't forced to "feel the burn" if that's not... More

Nice little place. Shrimp is cooked to perfection. Chicken tenders were delicious and the dipping sauces were a great addition. Check it out. You won't be dissapointed.
