Went with some colleagues... I was apprehensive at first, then tried the food... Unbelievable! I think the best fried chicken and fried catfish I ever had. The chicken was second to none... Highly recommended!

We used GPS an found a gravel and dirt yard next to a dark house. While we were looking for someplace to go, we noticed a few cars going down a dirt road. We investigated and found a new building with a very dark parking lot. Inside we were happy to find a lively country buffet with more than the... More

We love Mama Hamils! Delicious home cooking. There is a wide variety of things to eat on the buffet! I could eat here every time we are in Madison. I have no complaints!

Smoked Chicken is amazing, I like the wings best. The cornbread hot cakes are the best I have ever had. The cinnamon rolls are always winners as well.

I very seldom give five stars but this place is incredible. Lunch is $10 and includes dessert and beverage. You pay as you enter then grab a plastic three section plate and dig in. Salads are first...including a kale, edamame, dried cranberry salad. Veggies are next followed by meats and then breads and desserts. The selections are numerous and it's... More
