The chicken, egg and cheese biscuit is phenomenal. They have a half order biscuit with sausage gravy that delivers the goods on the gravy!!! Delicious.

The food choices are very good. We went with the french toast and an omelette with grits. Talk about comfort food, Mama's Boy, is a great name for this place!! ;)

Great spot with fantastic fare that includes local ingredients! Plus it's right next to Dudley Park so you can walk off that slice of pie!

We ate here before my husband started the Bike Ride Across Georgia. The buscuit was just the right amount of crumblyness and the chicken was delicious.

Mama's bot had always been a favorite of mine and I always look forward to eating it when I come home from college. All types of classic breakfast options and wonderful service. (I recommend preparing for a wait if you don't get there early though.)

Not sure why Mama's Boy is so highly rated. Food quality is inconsistent,prices high and service slow. The flavor was decent this time, the eggs tasted okay, but the potential stand outs just don't quite make it. I may go a third time if my...More

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.
