Mamas house use to be good, however it seems the last couple of times the quality of food and selections have been horrible. For the money golden corral is a better deal. Mamas house has the same old friend out dishes time after time ....More

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.
