This is the best buffet you will find in Mississippi! They are jam packed everytime I go but they are great with getting drinks and moving everybody through. Can’t beat Mama Hamils!

Best place to get great Southern, Comfort food, and it's an all-you-can-eat buffet. Seating can be family style downstairs. Open for lunch everyday but only certain days for dinner. A local favorite, so it's always crowded.

We ate there for the first time a couple of weeks ago and they exceeded our expectations. It is very informal, very family friendly, and the variety and quality of food is excellent. It's a fun place to experience outstanding Southern cuisine.

In Jackson for a conference, a dear friend suggested Mama's for lunch, I am so glad I went. Everything was great. Well worth the drive from downtown Jackson. 11 dollars for all you can eat plus a drink. Highly recommended.

Since this is strictly a buffet I'm not sure how that would work. Best you call the restaurant with that question.
