Mama Jean’s

Review by: Roadfood Team

In this humble cafe, lunch is best retrieved from the buffet and breakfast should be the Sportsman’s Special: three pancakes, three eggs, bacon or sausage, grits or home fries, biscuits or toast.

I came across this place by accident while passing through, although family members living in the area knew of it, but never visited. Mama Jean’s first opened her doors in 1994 and after reading a few reviews and paying a visit, one can quickly see why they have been successful for all these years.

The décor is very plain but you get a sense that this is where the locals eat and food quality is more important that ambiance. All of the staff was friendly and attentive, willing to top off that cup of coffee constantly.

They are open seven days a week serving breakfast and lunch from a full menu or a full buffet. The Sportsman Special breakfast comes with three pancakes, three large eggs, bacon or sausage patty. Grits or homefries or hash browns, biscuit or toast at $8.25 cannot be beat. Being in the South, it has to be biscuit and gravy.
