This place never lets me down. Staff is great and food is exceptional every time. Breakfast and lunch are both great. It does get incredibly busy though and more often than not, you will wait. Parking around back hurts, if the weather isn't extreme sometimes...More

Our family loves Mama's Boy! Don't be scared of the long line -worth the wait & moves fairly quickly. We have an Airbnb and I send all my guests here! The Georgia Peach French Toast and their Pancake Tuesdays are THE BEST!

Food is amazing always fresh, service is incredible, it was worth the wait, even the wait was good, they serve you coffee while you wait, and they have a really nice area for us to sit.

It is usually very crowded inside and on the patio so I would not advise bringing a dog inside. The wait staff moves quickly and efficiently. I really enjoy going to this restaurant.
