How would you rate Ma Momma’s House of Cornbread Chicken & Waffles?
Super courteous and the food was delicious... Kind of small so very quaint the server was super super-friendly
Mmmmm mmm finger licken fun
Awesome cornbread. Good service as well.
Cornbread is Absolutely Delicious..
The food was good, but the prices are not so good. $43 lunch gets you 2 - 3 pcs small wings and waffle plus a shared side of rice. Sweet tea is $3.50! I've never paid anything close to that for a glass of ice tea. Service was great. All in all, I don't see myself returning.
Good food, nice people what else can you ask for?? best food ive eaten in nola. I LOVE MA MOMMAS HOUSE!!!!11
Amazing food and service! The omelet and hash browns are excellent, and the fried chicken is seasoned to perfection. The staff is very friendly and talkative, they seem like they really enjoy working there - which is always good to see.
Absolutely wonderful customer service! The hospitality was so awesome and the cornbread is so freaking tasty! I ordered some to take back home. I will definitely return when I go back to Nola. I have never written a review before, but I had to do so for this place. You won't regret this!
literally the best southern corn bread I've ever had. The wait staff was amazing, the environment was superb, really a top notch place.
Great place to dine!!!!! Food was delicious. The kids actually enjoyed themselves and we all know how hard it is to please the lil ones lol. Highly recommended!!!!
This is a mess price is wayyyy to high for barley any food on your plate I don't recommend at all smh waste of money!!!!😒
Had the best breakfast of my life here this morning. I'm not exaggerating. Their chicken and waffles are going on my list of top five favorite meals ever. I felt so happy after eating here. THANK YOU FOR MAKING AMAZING FOOD!
OMG SERVICES WAS FANTASTIC!! I ORDER THE NICKEY BURGER OMG SOOOOOO DELICIOUS!! OMG THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH STARS FOR THIS RATING 10 STARS👏👏👏
i had the chicken back in 2014 and i'm still craving it! great food. great people. feels like home. that cornbread should be illegal. too freaking good!
Hello Mrs. Mackee, yesterday several of my Zulu friends and I went to the Restaurant.
Not only was the food tremendous. The service we received from your General Manager Rene was OUTSTANDING, she was extremely attentive to the group and she and the staff were superb. GREAT JOB just thought I should let you guys know they represented well. We will be back.

Good service well worth the high price people and trust me you going like the food ..Dont
I had the blt and seasoned fries and my bf had the chicken and waffles....both were amazing. Reasonably priced, great portions, staff was above and beyond the usual. Just a great place. You'd never know it from the outside! Make the stop, you won't be disappointed!
The food is very tasty and the service is A1.
Best chicken and waffles I have ever had, and the friendliest staff ever. Made sure my allergies were attended to and double checked to make sure I wouldnt get sick.
Good portions, fair price. The wait was a little due to a catering order they were working on but a nice hole in the wall place regardless
Customer service is AWESOME!!! The food was even better than the service so that should let you know.
Food was good, staff were very friendly, but I think the owners need to invest in a bigger location. Space is a little cramped.
One of the best places I've ever been to in my life! Not only was the food great, but the servixe was awesome! One of the few places I can go to and get a genuine hug after my meal :). I order the chix and waffles. Chix was so good my husband order a 16 piece party platter to go! Loved every minute of my experience there. Def a place to go while in NOLA.
Best fried chicken to the bone. Cornbread melts in your mouth. If you haven't been to MaMommas then you are missing out.
You must go here if you never been.. the staff was amazing and nice.. the food was sooooo DELICIOUS.. the cornbread is super good (it is sweet so if your not a sweet cornbread person then won't be ur cup o tea) I LOVED THE CORNBREAD..
I ordered the house on the menu with a waffle amd grits and soooo delicious.. the also order of beignets... you must come here breakfast and lunch/dinner all day. So if you want a burger for breakfast do it ❤ you won't be disappointed
The empty plate was the cornbread..so good forgot to take a pic❤
Wonderful service! The staff makes you feel at home, full of smiles and jokes.
I had some of the best iced tea in the South, and the chicken was so deliciously crispy and well seasoned that it made me sad I finished my meal so soon: I wish I could have ordered more! I highly recommend making the trek out of the city for some excellent food, cooked with heart and soul!
Yes. This place is soooooo good. Get the bone in wings if you get the chicken and waffles. Service is so friendly. Will definitely be coming back. Party all agreed it's worth the drive out of the FQ
Although it was crowded, we were served with pleasure and care. We didn't wait long for our food. It was delicious and filling.
Thanks My Mama's House staff.
Excellent service. Friendly staff. Good food.
From the music to the hospitality to the incredible, ah-maz-ingggg food my husband and I absolutely loved this place!!! We had to go back again before heading to NC!
That mouth watering homemade cornbread was heaven! 🤤 ❤️ We loved this place and wish we had one down in NC!
I had the Strawberry Waffle with Fried Chicken while my husband had the Fried Chicken and Grits!!!
People, you must try this place! It's the best hole in the wall we've been to since in NOLA! Momma keep making that delicious food and handing out those complimentary cornbreads! Xx
Me or my friend really did not enjoy the food. We did take take more than a couple bites before It dawned on us that we had made the wrong choice in choosing a restaurant. The quality of the food was very lackluster, comprable to jailhouse food. The service was not very good either. Friendly, but not good. We got our money back for the food and the manager was very understanding of the matter.
Great service and amazing food! The staff here treats you just like family. Chef Reero is amazing
VERY FUN. We didn't want to leave also they gave the kids a treat at the end. This was the best food we had in new orleans. The atmosphere was just great. My favorite hands down were the cornbread and chicken. That strawberry lemonade comes straight feom heaven!! . There is really NOTHING and i do mean nothing bad to say about this place. I can go on and on. The bathroom was spotless very clean!! Please give this place a try and tell them LPS girl sent you you won't regret it.
Wait time was very very long. Maybe it's always like that right before closing time since they're done 3pm. But food was good and service was outstanding.
Where do I start? From the moment, we walked in, we felt welcomed. The staff is so welcoming and warm, and makes good conversation with everyone who walks in. The complimentary Waffle shaped cornbread is to die for, it literally melts in your mouth. And don't get me started on the rum waffle with the Bourbon "syrup". I didn't want to stop eating, even after I was full! I highly recommend coming here! Best place in New Orleans!
The food was great, but the staff was even better! They've gotten fried chicken down to a science, and each piece is cooked the exact same and seasoned perfectly. It was juicy, flavorful, and filling.
The staff was extremely friendly and courteous!
I loved this place. The owner is so down to earth and warm! I felt right at home as soon as I walked in.....and the food was great!
Chef Rene and her staff are awesome. The food is great. Mouth watering!
Had such a great time here during my short stay in Louisiana. My waitress, Renee, was so warm from the moment I walked in until I left. Even offering my boyfriend and I water before we headed out. I will be coming back for sure if I'm ever back down south. Great food and wonderful staff!
My first experience here was awesome! The staff was soooo nice. They were very warm and inviting. The complimentary cornbread was amazing!!! (I love good cornbread.) I ordered the signature dish, chicken and waffles. It was so good. The chicken had a little kick to it. They give very generous portions, I couldn't eat it all. It was definitely worth the stop and I'm going back. Think I'll try the shrimp and grits 😉
My girlfriend and I stopped here for brunch before we left town and it was a fantastic experience! Pam greeted us with a friendly smile and made sure we were taken care of the entire time. We ate the chicken & waffles, and eggs, bacon, hashbrowns. Everything was delicious. Definitely check this place out if you’re in NOLA!
Really good food, however, the location is small and closes to earlier in my opinion. .. I drove here about 4 to 5 times and they were closed, but I would say if you're looking for the perfect blend of flavor, fresh food. .. This is the place that delivers... again, you can only get it till 3 PM. I am not sure if they're open 7 days a week like it states on there website. I try calling today no answer and according to Google there are closed today but the website says otherwise.
If there open hours work with your schedule, I suggest you try fit them in. .. oh yeah, one thing that surprised me during my last visit here, they gave us half of a cornbread waffle. .. That experience alone makes me want to give them 2 stars, but the food is to good for me to give them 2 stars.
Always great food and services love going here. You are family. Make sure you get the chicken and waffles. I had the banana nut waffle with 6 wings omg to die for. Also the shrimp and grits is amazing. Cant go wrong with this menu.
I loved this place as soon as I walk in. I see all the hard work and love that goes into this place and my food was awesome! I'm writing this review while still in the restaurant and you all are working so hard to take care of everyone so just know that it doesn't go unnoticed. The only thing I can say is that the restaurant needs a bit more organization in the back for optimal performance( it'll make your lives a lot easier overall). Thank you for the great experience!
All the food on the menu was great. Staff was professional, pleasant and facilities very clean. If ever in the area, do yourself a favor and drop in.
I am from California and this place rates up there with Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.
Great food and flavor. You can tell they take pride in their food and what they do. Everything is good but I highly recommend the fresh strawberry lemonade and cornbread!
Wanted to start this review by mentioning that we waited over an hour and a half to get our food (this is including the 20 minutes it took for them to take our order after being seated). However, the small staff was working extremely hard and was very friendly. The food was simply amazing!! Best chicken and waffles we've had. The breading on the chicken had a comfort food feel with a twist that gave it a unique and delicious flavor. And the corn bread was enjoyed by all including my fiance, who is not usually a fan of it. If you can get in before it gets busy, you should definitely check this place out!
Visiting from Florida and saw this place on google. Checked it out and was very pleased. The food was great! Service was great. It's a very small restaurant so might not be a good place for large groups. Other than that if your around the area check this place out!
My wife and son and I was there yesterday and was looking to enjoy a Sunday meal and it didn't happen. First we waited 10 minutes for a table, that was ok got seated got drinks and a menu and order. After receiving the drinks we waited 45 minutes still no food. After 10 more minutes we decided to leave and just pay for the drinks so they charged us $9.36 for 3 cokes in a can and no food. I said was she serious she said yes $2.50 plus tax . I said considering I waited a hour u should waive the tax she said no way and didn't have correct change to give back she she kept the$10. We was very shocked and very disappointed and people before us still hadn't received they food yet. So a HR for us 3drinks cost us $10 . Never again.
I'm very upset with the whole situation. My son wanted to eat at your restaurant because we were visiting home (New Orleans) since we left a few years ago, same reason so many others did. So we come in and get some good home cooking, we're seated and then not helped for 15 min. After we are finally given menus we ordered two house specials, at $10.99 each and two cheeseburger meals at $13.99 and 4 cokes at $2.50 a piece coming to $60.00 and they charged us $67.00. I guess with tax for food in a restaurant which sure in the hell doesn't happen where we live now the bill came to over $76.00 for breakfast because of a tip. I think that's way over priced for what we could have gotten at Denny's or I HOP for $40 with better food and faster service. I'm sad to say you ruined our trip to the quarter that afternoon because parking downtown has gotten out of control to. It's sad to see that New Orleans has just become another expensive tourist trap when the one thing it used to be known for was it's southern charm and hospitality and it's affordability we're even the poor man could enjoy in it's revelry.
Amazing homemade southern food! Small cozy joint you'll love!! The corn waffles are to die for and could literally be a meal itself and the chicken and waffles are legit out of this world! Will definitely be back soon!!
The chicken and waffles here are exquisite! The chicken is so amazingly seasoned and the waffle is big and soft. They give a complimentary cornbread at the start of your meal, and it's shaped like a waffle. It's the best cornbread I've ever had! So delicious!
The food and service was phenomenal!!! The shrimp and grits were amazing and the atmosphere was homey and friendly. Definitely worth the drive from the westbank side of the Mississippi River. Instead of 5 stars, I give Momma 5 belches
Only come here if you want to get addicted! The Mac n cheese can substitute my mom’s! The hash browns were perfectly crisp and topped with freshly cut tomatoes, peppers, and onions. Wash everything down with some homemade tea and you will want to hug Renee on a job well done!
My family and I were recently in New Orleans and have came across this gem. The food here is so delicious. Taste like home cooking. The chicken and waffles are like none I have ever had before. But really the best item here is the corn bread. I have never had corn bread like this. Not only is the food amazing but the staff is so kind and sweet. We came in with a party of 13. And they were so patient with us and made our visit so nice. This restaurant was so good we had to go back one last time before we left New Orleans. We can not wait to come back to enjoy another Nawlins home cooking.
They say a dirty kitchen makes the best food. And it is good food. We were they shortly after opening and for a table of five with only bout six other adults in it did take awhile for us to get our food. Whichever meal you get skip the toast & pay the extra buck for their cornbread. Waffles were excellent too.
This was the most amazing food ever!! The cornbread is to die for and the chicken and waffles, let me say is the best we ever had!! The staff was simply amazing and so friendly!! This is a must if you visit New Orleans. We wish we would of found this gem earlier!!
Worst possible experience ever! I would never attempt to go back to this restaurant! I would give it 0 stars. Was with a group looking forward to eating some good Nola fried chicken-we called to confirm the restaurant was opened-called at 2pm-they were closing at 3pm. Young lady answered the phone and stated they were closing and couldn’t seat anyone her exact words when asked if they were closing were “no mama” and hung up the phone. We showed up regardless because that info didn’t match the hours posted. Come to find out they were open and seating guest. Unfortunately we walked into 3 dirty tables not ready for customers to sit-no one greeted us and we were left in limbo at the entrance of the restaurant for about 15 min. The waiter was dragging her feet to clean the tables almost has if she didn’t want us to sit. She was actually the one that answered the phone. After no interaction with the staff and waiting aimlessly-we decided to take our business elsewhere. I am disusted with the lack of service, being lied to and my time wasted due to bad service. I was looking forward to supporting a black business and I walk into this. So unprofessional. I hope this reaches who it needs to and they reflect on their staffing and service.
Me and my family (2 adults 2kids) went here today and is was a full house so we waited about 5 mins and 2 tables left instead of us being seated the waitress had us waiting another 15-20 mins while she put receipts in the computer so we waited until she was done she comes over and ask do y’all see somewhere y’all want sit now the 2 tables that got up were never cleaned off and there was a table top with 3 stools she offers us the table top with bar stools like I don’t have 2 kids with me and then it’s 4 of us not 3 she was horrible!!! I didn’t want to deal with her so we just left and the couple behind us left as well I’m so disappointed
The best in all of Louisiana I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ma Momma’s House!!! Reasonable Prices food made with love and very friendly people working... You are going to fall in love it’s a guarantee!!!!!!!
On our recent girls trip, we had the pleasure of having brunch here. The food was great and our cook/waitress was fantastic. We will visit again when we come back to NOLA!!!!
All I can say is everything is FANTASTIC. This is my breakfast spot whenever I visit New Orleans and the staff makes me feel like I'm at my grandparents house. I absolutely love this place. The cornbread will tear your taste buds up because it is that damn good!!!
My first time time could have not been any better.. the buffet was perfect.. I got to try everything on the menu.. Red Beans, Fish, Grits, Eggs, chicken and the Waffles
The co-owner was cool as a fan! And the food was even better. We ate until we told her she had to cut us off. It was a great deal and delicious to boot. Get that waffle cornbread, chicken and waffles, fish, and red beans and rice. Basically, get it all! Note: if you go for brunch, its BYOB.
Great black owned restaurant. On Sunday $21.99 all you can eat buffet
Great service and the food was good. Love that the owner was very nice and was there to make sure that everything was going good. I also like that when I ask for my eggs to be cooked soft they came out right, which was a surprise because most breakfast spots don't get it right. Will be back.
The food, atmosphere, and the staff were all amazing!!! Renee made us feel so welcomed. You will not be disappointed. I will definitely visit again the next time I'm in NOLA!
The sign that said they had the best wings in town was definitely incorrect. The wings were tiny & the taste was mediocre. The cornbread waffles tasted dry. The wait was long as well because there was only one cook & although she was nice enough, the was only one greeter/cashier/server, all in one. We almost missed a reservation we had afterward because of the wait here.
I loved this place!! It was a Yelp! find, and last minute decision on our way back to GA. The cook called in that day, but you would have never known, by the way everything was handled. The lady, maybe the owner, was cooking, serving, greeting customers, training an employee, and we still received our food items in a respectable time. I highly recommend giving this establishment a try!!
Had the Sunday brunch table service and it was fantastic. Friendly staff, clean, and efficient. Food was good home cooking and the red beans and rice was spot on. Get there early as seating is limited.
I loved this place! If you are a breakfast person then I totally recommend you going here. I just ordered a Waffle and sausage and it was delicious, especially the waffle. It was creamy and had so much flavor. The service here was very good to. The staff was very nice to the kids and gave us extra waffles and chicken! I just loved my experience here and I would definitely go back there again.—HF, 11yrs old
I’ve seen a lot of the reviewers mention a few things that I’d like to address. The restaurant is old, small (not good for big groups) and the service is on the slower side compared to larger places. HOWEVER the people are so friendly and the chicken was delicious. Our waitress cashed out other patrons first then gave our group the attention we needed. The food is cooked to order and well worth the wait. You can taste the love they put into their dishes. I’m glad we came.
Our experience here was just amazing!! Miss Nicole took great care of us, she has such a tender heart and contagious smile. Such a beautiful soul! We both ordered House Breakfast, with different choices. Our flavored waffles were melt-in-your-mouth good, the smoked sausage was cooked perfectly and the grits were just right. For fans of sweet tea, the tea here was just wonderful and refreshing. Definitely recommend this to anyone passing through or living in this area.
Great experience. Good staff. The food was great! I'm from the south and so I know good chicken and cornbread and this place got both! Great job!
First time in new Orleans and I heard the food at this place and I knew I had to try it. Once I went in the staff was nice and friendly and the food was very good. I'll definitely come back when I'm back in town.
Who would have know that the gate to Heaven was located in a strip mall? This place is hands down the best chicken and waffles in the country (well in the 28 restaurants I have sampled in 19 states). The chicken breading is spectacular and fresh, I mean this is right out of the grease onto your plate, piping hot. The waffles are Belgium style with a great malty flavor, and the cornbread.....that would make the Roman's miss a crucifixion folks. I recommend this place to anyone interested in experiencing a true marriage of sweet and savory, accompanied by a great staff with amazing personality. Thanks again for the great chow, we will be back in August.
My family and I visited this place after church for Sunday Brunch. Everything was excellent, all you can eat and the food was seasoned so well. The chicken and waffles, and red beans was my favorite. If you have not tried this restaurant it is a must. Your pallet would truly be satisfied. The staff is great and the Chef takes pride in his cooking. I will be returning soon.
My first time trying their food and I was not disappointed at all. The chicken was seasoned to the God's. The cornbread waffle was delicious as well. I will be back.
If your girlfriend's on her period and is somewhere between hormonal rage and random crying, take her to Mama's. This is the best place to go if you're having a bad day and need someone to make you smile. Their chocolate waffles are AMAZING, and from what I've heard, so is everything else on the menu. The staff is so friendly and fun, and they've got great dance moves. Highly recommend.
Seems like a little hole-in-the-wall but it is so worth the trip! The day that I was there they ran out of chicken wings and gave me the last two in the building! I was overly impressed by their hospitality and more than that by their food! I had the chicken strips and waffles and was amazed! The chicken was crispy and seasoned to perfection! The waffle was like and fluffy and delicious just like it ought to be. The chef brought out his dessert beignets for us to try and we had a praline pecan a chocolate and a strawberry and you couldn't ask for more perfection than that! The staff that was working there made you feel like you were right at home just like at your mama's house!
Such a wonderful friendly place. Mama was right in the kitchen and everybody seemed to know the cooking style so we'll! I was so impressed. It was absolutely delicious, no complaints except that my stomach wouldn't accommodate everything I wanted to try! 😩
Only one person seating people, taking orders, and clearing the tables. Took extra long getting our orders taken and the food. They charge you 2.50 for a 12 oz. canned drink. I had the 3 wings, red beans and rice, salad, and cornbread. The salad came out as we were eating our entrees. The chicken was ok. Nothing to write home about.
We tried the wings and waffles along with a side of beans and rice and it was all amazing. The portion size was more than enough and satisfying. The flavor was on point and the friendliness of the staff made this place a restaurant we would go back to. Definitely recommended!
Amazing experience! The food was so good. The staff and owner were great. We will be back. We will continue to support this amazing black business when we are in town🖤
This place is perfect as is. Friendly staff very clean and the food is just like home. Don't let the small space deter you. It is very comfortable and the owners make the most of this space. We will always make time for this special place when we visit New Orleans.
The chicken and waffles...
If you don't try anything else at least try the chicken and some cornbread.
