My wife and I had a wonderful Sunday lunch at Mamas House. It was our first visit, everything was buffet, and everything was good. Had a variety of meats, veggies, salad, breads, and desserts. Price was good. Would recommend to others.

Made from scratch mashed potatoes, pot roast, chicken dumplings, and lots other. Good wholesome country cooking, and I always start off with a great salad. Enough choices for everybody and top it off with dessert and ice cream.

We visited Memorial Day weekend on Sunday. Food was delicious and affordable. I am hesitant about buffets as bad experiences at Golden Corral but this one was done well. Mary Joe Begley was an excellent hostess!
