We were in town for Naval graduation and stopped here for a family dinner. We wanted something delicious and off the beaten path and got it. Dining area is small but we fit our group of 7 adults and a baby in at a table. They do have a high chair so ask if you need one. Ordered two medium... More

I have eaten here a few times and everything has been good. There is a good selection to choose from and the prices are reasonable. The staff has been very friendly and helpful. Only bad thing is not a lot of seating.

Had delivery from here to a local hotel, and the pizza and wings were AWESOME! I'm a pizza lover and this was high on my list of pizzas I've eaten. And their wings are great too. I'd definitely come back to this place if I am in the area again. Delicious!

Best pizza I've had in a long time. I enjoyed the sauce as well as the crust and there was no skimping with toppings and cheese!

Mama K's is a great little café with delicious food and friendly service, owned by Mama K. We are locals so we come about once a week or so for a quick, delicious, reasonably-priced lunch. We usually run into folks we know. Being from the Chicago area, where pizza is it's own food group, we often order pizza for home... More

My daughter and I just left Mama K's. We had a pizza and chicken wings. Both were amazing. The next time we visit Gurnee we are definitely eating here again. The restaurant was small though, so you might want to do carry-out.

Wow - My Dad found this treasure. The pizza ingredients were so fresh and delicious. I was also very impressed with the service. I will most definitely return for another pie. So very, very good.

We found this place on Trip Advisor, and it was just as described. The food was delicious, and ready quickly. The calzones were impressive and huge, and we loved our pizza. Perfect casual meal after a day in a hot theme park. Very reasonably priced, too.

Thank Megan Z
