I had a burger, which was juicy and had a good flavor. Unfortunately, they were out of French Fries and the server gave me tator tots for 1/2 price. They were good as well. The place was extremely crowded with what looked to be a lot of college kids. If you go at popular times, expect a long wait.

We ate at Mama Burgers on a recent stay in Flagstaff. I had the Mama Burger with special sauce and tater tots. The burger was juicy and the tater tots crispy. I had a chance to sample 3 different shakes all of which were delicious. The service was excellent. The restaurant reminded me of places that were around when I... More

Excellent shake and fries! Lots of toppings for gourmet burger. Wonderful thin mint shadow and what a view of the mountains!

Having grown up in a small town, I know all about the local burger places that have amazing food. We had thought this would fit into that category, as it seems to be always busy. We tried it out and our first mistake was using the drive thru.... 10+min wait with only one car in front of us. What?? You... More

Mama Burger is not a fancy place, but the burgers and shakes are oh so good! The burgers were juicy, tasty, and satisfying. They are good sized and have many options as to have them topped. They have unique combinations that are sure to satisfy. We also had the crusty tator tots with ranch dressing, and a creamy, smooth milk... More

Stopped here for lunch while in town for a recent visit while waiting for the museum up the road to open. We were looking for a good burger (higher quality than fast food) and this looked quite promising. I ordered the bacon avocado burger with fries and a chocolate shake, DH ordered the regular burger with tots and a chocolate... More

It's hard to get a place to sit in Mama Burger, and for good reason. OK, the dining area is small - but when there are 30 seats and 40 customers at the same time, it's a sure thing you're doing something right. Satisfying, perfectly cooked and delicious - at a good price, too. You really have to eat at... More

This is a small restaurant with minimal seating, yet people pack in the parking lot, line up at the front door and drive through the window to get their food. They have a variety of burgers. They don't have combos, but if you buy a burger and fries you get a free soda. I thought the burger was good but... More

Mama Burger is mom and pop fast food---only it's not fast at all. The pros? Fantastic burgers and shakes at a good price. It has that classic mom and pop, old-school burger joint thing going for it. The cons? It's too slow, even when they're not that busy. I'm just not sure why an order takes as long as it... More
