“Fabulous food”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The garlic rolls are amazing and I get them every time I come here. The pizza is also very good. It is possible to get pizza by the slice if you "Build a pizza", but they don't advertise that so you have to ask for it. It's hard to go wrong with anything on the menu at Mama G's. Also, the atmosphere is pretty good and the signs for parking are much clearer than at most places. Look under the massive billboard advertising the restaurant to know that you have arrived there.

“3 times and still bad”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I decided to give this one 3 times because the staff is good.
However the food is certainly not.
Pricey and way overrated.
I would never recommend and 3 times- you're out.
Never again will we waste our time and money to drive there.

“THE local place to eat when visiting this area!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The "go to place:. Sometimes crowded, but this is because the food is consistently good. They offer a wide range of home cooked Italian food, with large portions, at great prices.

“Consistently Good Italian Food”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Mama G's is a family oriented restaurant for casual dining. Parking is in the back, and you enter through a large patio area set up with tables for outside dining. The inside is spacious and offers seating at tall tables, regular tables, and booths. Be aware that they get busy at dinner time (even during the week if there are large parties), so there is often a wait. There is seating outside to accommodate this. They offer a full bar. Service is friendly and usually attentive. The menu is not huge, but offers all the basics and also some seafood an chicken dishes. Their meat, marinara, and alfredo sauces all are good and taste fresh. The garlic rolls are served brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with shaved parmesan and are absolutely delicious. The salads are ample but only the house dressing is fresh...others are served in packets. My friend always gets the lasagna; I am partial to the tri-color tortellini with alfredo sauce. The portions are big.....I usually take some home. The pizzas are loaded with toppings. I ate the eggplant parmesan on my last visit, and while it was good, the eggplant was soggy rather than crisp, and they skimped on the cheese. If you are a sports fan, there are televisions to keep you up-to-date on the scores.

“Still undecided about this one...”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Stopped in for dinner after receiving rave reviews from the locals. Waitress was friendly and helpful. We both ordered salads. Nothing special here but good. My husband had the chicken
parmesan. I had the lasagna. Mine arrive piping hot on a tin pizza pan in a bowl. This was a surprise but okay. There were only two noodles in the entire dish. The ground beef was all on one side and very little cheese. Surprised..to say the least. The chicken parmesan was laying on a bowl of spaghetti with a little sauce on top. Cold in the center of the chicken. that's it. I suggest he order a side of meat sauce for his spaghetti since the bowl was full. The waitress brought the tomato marinara. he ate it anyway. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing....but we did not go back while in the area.
