REVIEWS OF Yo' Mama's IN Alabama

LaCrystal Ducksworth

Fantastic!! Silverware is handwashed and that's a plus because sprayers do not produce clean silverware. The food was absolutely amazing! The food doesn't want to make you slap "yo mama"(my mama don't play) buy it does make you want to ask "yo mama...can you cook like THIS""!! Everything was FRESH!!! WILL go back again and again and again......

Rhonda Stricklin

Great food, wonderful service,and friendly atmosphere.

Tamika Perkins

Okay on to the review, i have been coming to this restaurant for lunch for about a year now on and off. Each time it's the same experience, they have good food and a special of the day. Come early and know what you want to eat by the time you get to the front. They have a small menu but do all the items very well! It's a great blend of southern and soul food! They have indoor and outdoor sitting. I routinely bring friends and customers here, and they don't disappoint they shrimp and grits to the hot wings and fries are great and on point. Tastes just like a family kitchen's home cooking with their personality infused with the food!

Mike James

Amazing food, can be a wait but it is well worth it. Great customer service as well! Whew gotta go back!

DeeDee Robinson

The wings were just right. The service was good. They accommodated our group of 20 ladies with ease.

Marc Adiel MENSAH

Hot wings plate with rice and ff. Very well done

Summer Austin Wells

Where to start? Yo’ Mama’s is absolutely fantastic. The regular menu offers standard options of chicken, seafood, and burger dishes, but the daily lunch special is what made me fall in love with this place. My first experience was on Pork chop Tuesday, when I had a perfectly seasoned and moist (large) pork chop, mac and cheese, collard greens, and the best piece of succulent cornbread that has ever crossed my lips. At this point, I was hooked. Next, I had a lunch special that consisted of a fabulous (again, large) piece of grilled salmon, a corn and red pepper slaw, rice pilaf, and broccoli. Delicious! Can it get any better? Yes! The staff is super friendly, and when you walk in, you feel like you’re in a happy home. No pretentiousness, just great food and great people who genuinely enjoy providing it to you. Love, love, love this spot!

Clarence Threatt III

The shrimp and grits are from heaven. Staff friendly and helpful. You're going to pay a little more but it's so worth it.

Dave Schedler

Amazing shrimp and grits! I'm so stuffed right now

Carl Toyer

Great service and food

David Chalk

Great southern comfort food. The wings were the best I've had in a long time. We also had great fish tacos. Service was at the counter then food brought to the table. Clean, friendly and efficient and a good price. Highly recommended.

Carlisa Cole

The best chicken and waffles in town!

Hannibal Martine

Love place...small and quaint the food was so good and the staff was courteous and explained the menu options. Showmanship goes a long way!

Navorro Hudson

Great food and great service!

Maggie Dickinson

Do not go! Horrible, greasy food, bad service and dirty. I don’t know how this place has so many 5 star reviews!

samual mcleod

Great atmosphere! The food is amazing, and the staff is wonderful. The prices are also very reasonable. The "chicken and waffles" are by far my favorite dish at Yo' Mama's. I would definitely recommend taking a trip to eat at Yo' Mama's. If you're in the area, go check it out!

Beverly King

This was my first visit. They have a limited menu and hours, but everything was delicious perfection.

Travae' Hardaway Griffith

Cozy place, delicious food and friendly people

Knesha Harris

This was absolutely the best fried chicken I have ever tasted in my entire life! Every single bite is filled with crunch and flavor! The waffle was perfection! And the fruit punch was on point!! The only thing is u have to catch them during lunch or on the rare Thursday they r open for dinner. They has live music and the singer was amazing!! Absolutely LOVE yo mama's! Ask the owner to sing some Jill Scott for ya too she'll blow u away

Jean Goodwin

Food was good - service is terrible - not worth the wait. 35 minutes for my husband to get his food - and 45 minutes for me. No first in first out system - no prejudice either. Just poor management in the kitchen.

Teresa Rygiel

Office ordered and picked up lunch today, first time anyone had eaten from here....it was FANTASTIC!!!!! We will be ordering from here on a regular basis!!! You gotta try it!!!

Helen Bowman

The best chicken I had and the shrimp with grit very tasty!

v salley

Oh my goodness. A coworker said I had to try the chicken and waffle plate and now I can't work. I just want to lay down.

John King

First visit here and it was awesome. Had the wing plate and their wings are amazing!!!

Ebony Reynolds

It was amazing great customer service food was off the chain I will return over and over again everything was fresh.

Janise Powell

Excellent food and superb service

Jedediah Spencer

Best friend chicken (next to my mother's!). Delicious food. They have specials of the day every day. At some point I need to make myself try something else but the chicken is so good. It is the type of food you want to take a nap afterwards though so don't expect to get a lot of work done after lunch. Only real negative is small area for seating and it can definitely get packed and fill up quickly at lunch.

Dixie Godette

Counter lady is mad fabulous. Food tasty. Love the chicken and waffles.

Ashton Rowcliffe

We had chicken and waffles and my son had the wings. The wings (they also come with the waffle) are great. There were 6 large fried wings and a plate sized waffle. I suggest getting the fresh fruit on top which included fresh whipped cream. You can leave off any of those. The waffle is served with homemade maple syrup. Order and then sit. The lady at the front taking our order was super friendly. (Go Bucs!) As we ate, other staff asked how the food was and if we needed anything. Only open until 2:30. Yum !

Monieka B

I was a little throwed off because you ordered your food then got a table but other than that.... AMAZING! The food and the service was amazing! Get there early because it's not a lot of space. Get the salmon and some pancakes!

Yvonne P. Hardy

Food was great service exceptionally great I will be going back

Kelly Varney

Great shrimp and grits. Fish taco were good grilled.

Pete Johnson

Amazing chicken and waffles! You will want to go out of your way to eat here! Don't miss it! Why are you still reading this? Go get your chicken and waffles now!

Tealia Davis

Wait was a little long, but expected due to customers. Chicken and waffles were great, probably some of the best chicken I have had in a while. Loved the syrup served with the waffles. Cashier was very friendly.

Isaac Massey

Great service Cole slaw was awesome def going again

Wil Johnson

Enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Menu is pretty limited though and the prices are pretty high. Will return to try other items eventually. Service was excellent.

Terrence King

Great food. Cooked to order so everything's Hot and Fresh. A must do.

Carin Atkins

Customer service is great...food ok

Jared Spates

It was just okay...wings were heavily breaded with little flavor. Fries were oddly seasoned, tastes a little like cinnamon. Broccoli was fantastic, Spanish rice was fantastic! The person taking orders wasn’t very quick to get orders in even though the line was out the door. All seating was full so I ordered mine to go, and didn’t really know where to stand...after standing in line for 15 minutes, my food was out is less than 5.

Christian B

Best gluten-free restaurant ever! Everything on the menu is or can be gluten-free. The fried chicken is amazing, as are the waffles. Their homemade syrup is delicious. We came back for brunch, and I'm sad we're only here for the weekend!

The Woke Unicorn

Wonderful crew! Every time I walk in I feel welcomed. The diner’s design is refreshing and clean, while the food is honest and soulful. I appreciate this team for their attention to detail, professionalism, and heart.

Brad Jones

Great place and awesome people! I enjoy the meal of the day and the burger is out of this world!

Monique Shine

I found this place on a fluke googling restaurants near me... I love everything about this place... The look and feel of the restaurant the employees.. the music that was playing... Firstly I was greeted by a friendly and happy staff... after ordering the wait for the food was short.. I had the chicken and waffles with fruit and it was delicious...everything about my experience was 5 star from beginning to end...

Jay Jen

OMG!! Best food ever! Me and my daughter just left and believe me when I say I cnt wait to get unfull so i can go bk...salmon croquettes and rice...and them pancakes and syrup...that syrup is off the chain...oh and we have best fried chicken ever..thanks Mama(that's what i will call her) for making me feel luke I was sitting in my mommas kitchen and for coming out to speak to us and ck on things. Special touch that made me feel special

Elizabeth B

Always good, hot & fresh!!

walter means

I’m here eating right now ! And when I say this restaurant was built and the food was made with LOVE that is a fact !!!!! I mean everything was rich and delicious! The service was amazing and the music they play is so soothing to the ears for a breakfast vibe !!! I will be back ! Thank you for a taste of Yo mamas love in her food!

Ava Chaney

I love this place! Great food and always friendly and professional service. One of my favorite places to dine alone.

L. Kendall Lawson

WOW... if you’re looking for blan,basic, or mediocre food then don’t come here! This place is one of Birmingham best kelp secrets.

Frankie shine III

Excellent service and wonderful food that is priced right. Cook to order restaurant.

J B .

I have tried the wings and waffles a few times, the waffle is soft and fluffy and the wings are seasoned and filling. There's a syrup which comes with it, I haven't tasted it anywhere else. Tried the fish taco too, it's good too. It's my first fish taco, so I'll need to try it again to be accurate. You can't be seated until you order and the seating is limited, but people move along fairly quickly. The cashier with the dreads is really nice. Try this place at least once. It's not open all day, so check their hours before heading out.

Michael Makowski

Food was outstanding and everything is gluten free! We ordered chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits and they were both gluten-free and delicious.

Sharon Woodard

The food was good, and the staff was friendly! Food a little pricey!

John Creel

Living a gluten free lifestyle is challenging when trying to find places to eat out. This place has the entire menu gluten free. The staff is super nice. Definitely worth the trip.

dorothea boleware

Small, but great food

Jovonna Hardy

Food was good but a bit over priced. Front Desk Customer service needs improvement very abrasive speaking.

Kathy White

This place have excellent food! The shrimp grits and wings are so yummy! Nice environment

Damon Davis

I’m feeling this joint! It took me a year to actually get there because it seemed like I couldn’t get my schedule to match up with their odd business hours. But when I got there it didn’t disappoint. The space is a little small but it’s clean, well managed, and carries a overall energetic urban vibe. It’s an order and sit style restaurant, which felt perfectly suitable for their approach. The food came hot and freshly cooked! I felt like the chicken could have a bit more seasoning but it was still good. The servers were helpful, attentive and down to earth but still professional. I ordered the chicken and waffles this time. The waffles can with a homemade syrup that I’ve never had before. It was good, especially when I mixed it with the peach cobbler topping the gave me for my waffle. I’m coming back and the next time I want shrimp and grits!

LeAnne Mackey

The food is amazing!!!!! Service was great! I had the chicken strips THE BEST EVER!!!! I WILL be back!!!!!!!!!

Flo -Jo

We were a little loss. First time visiting and we couldnt see the main menu. Were looking for to go menus. They had a menu on counter. The food was delicious. I had chicken and 1 waffle. Waffle was melt in your mouth yum yum good. Chicken was served seasoned to perfection and hot. My friend had chicken and fries. Homemade fries were really tasty. Umm yes I "snuck" some while he was getting the drinks. Hehe. Service was great too. Servers were nice and prompt. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back again.

Jasmine N

They have gluten free every thing. Even the waffles. Chicken and waffles! Shrimp. Fish and chips. I mean eat it all to your fulfillment. Gluten free mecca and love it all. Honestly the best gluten free fried chicken I have ever had. Also, p.s - they have Gluten Free fried oreos. My husband who is a celiac and my mom who is allergic to gluten were in heaven enjoying everything!

Favored.

7 piece "thyme" wings are big, hot and the crunch is off the chain!! Word of advice for cashier........go easy on 1st timers. Much respect

Alvin Johnson

Love the shrimp and grits. I can't get enough.

Kristi Ganley

I can't heap enough praise on this place. Speaking of heaping, generous portions at wonderfully affordable prices. I would best describe the food as bursting with flavor and yummy goodness. Even the gluten free offerings. Top it off with an amazingly friendly staff and you've got a restaurant that hits on all cylinders.

Michelle young

This was a very pleasant surprise! The food and the staff were excellent! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick bite to eat!

Mrz Perry

So my hubby and I came in for lunch and the place was PACKED. We tried to eat in but it was so busy we ran out of time. I asked to switch to a to go order and that's when they went from 5 stars to 3. I ordered shrimp and grits which were cold, no toast that was promised, and the table we sat at was filthy. After cleaning the table myself and waiting for my to go order we received the shrimp and grits sans toast and my husband's chicken and waffles. They promised fresh fruit on the waffles which was left out and the chicken was super huge like it was FULL of steroids which makes me happy I got the shrimp. The reason they got 3 stars instead of 1 was because the shrimp and grits were AMAZING! OMG they are so freaking good even though I probably won't be back because its to small of a space but I'm telling y'all the shrimp and grits were off the rip.

Maurice Canon

When you want some of the best in shrimp and grits this is definitely the place

Clif Ríchard

Really great food! The owner and her staff are so friendly. It was like I was eating at a big family reunion. Will definitely be back!

Chris Golden

I was drawn to the name. I stayed for the food. And hospitality. Chicken one of the best I've had in my life and I was in the south so youd expect good chicken everywhere. But this place is the best. Sit down have some sweet tea and chat with the people who work there too

Justin Gruber

This is a must eat when in B-ham, service was top shelf, every dish was great, chicken and waffles best anywhere the syrup was ridiculous, grits and shrimp fantastic, and that smoked sausage was ballin. Get there.

LaKesha K.

Extremely nice staff. The only downside to this place is the size of the building. I wish continued success and pray they decide to branch out with other larger locations. We ordered chicken and waffles, a pancake breakfast, and the French toast breakfast. Along with an omelette filled with sausage, ham and cheese. The sides were an order of cheese grits and skillet potatoes. For drinks we tried the pink lemonade and the fruity punch they offer. The star of this restaurant is the fried chicken. You can order all flats or drumettes, but the order comes with a combination of both. Well seasoned fried chicken, paired with a fluffy waffle and their homemade syrup which tastes like a combination of melted brown butter and maple syrup. Please go give this place a try. Squeeze in and get to know the other patrons. You won't be sorry. I look forward to my next visit so I can try the shrimp and grits. Enjoy!

Brenda Chapman

Awesome love the food and service.

Jim Craig

They get crowded quickly because of small dining area, but best to eat there

Nichole Olson

Stopped here on our way from Chiago to Florida, so glad we did! We tried almost everything. Shrimp tacos, fish tacos, chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, salmon special. Get ready for a food high, because everything was comfort food heaven. I usually get grilled fish but the fried was amazing. Get a side of the hot wing sauce for your chicken, shrimp or fish for extra kick. Service was phenomenal and friendly, cooks, servers and hostess. We will be back!

Clay Comer

Great food and atmosphere. I would take a customer there for lunch anytime!

Mrs. Laqnda Hammonds

I ate here for the first time about a month ago and it was good. I had their fried chicken and waffles. My friend had their grits and shrimps. The serving size was huge we ended up taking some home.

Gregory Ridgel

Amazing food. Truly feels like you eating at Yo' Mama's house. Some of the best food I've had in B'ham. I'm definitely coming back.

Kween Witta K

The best hands Down! From the customer service to quality of service! Hopefully they'll expand their location & open some weekends at least...

Mary Powell

Stopped in Bham on the way to ATL, boyfriend had chicken and waffles w/ house syrup! The chicken was so hot and juicy. I had shrimp tacos and they were tasty!

Robert Fuller

Worth every penny

Jayda Marable

This was my first experience at yo’ mama’s and I must say it was literally awful. The lady that checks you out at the front was so sweet! I think her name was kristy, But it went down hill from there, we waited for more than an hour, when the food finally came out..they told us they ran out of cheese gifts and smoked sausage (we had already paid for these things, there was no option to get your money back) the lady that gave me the food I think her name is terry was just so rude, I asked her what was the yellow stuff in the cup and she just caught a whole attitude (again it was my first time) i didn’t know it was some type of special syrup! the food was amazing but the customer service was awful! If you don’t want to be there then leave..

Mike Woods

Shrimp and Grits were OK. Everything else was pretty pedestrian (fish) or bad (wings). SAVOR -2 out of 5

Barbara

My 1st time eating there and it was so worth it. I had pork chops, macaroni and cheese, cornbread and greens. The greens and cornbread were delicious, the macaroni and cheese was baked to perfection and the pork chops were decent. I also has a slice of red velvet cake and it was delicious and moist, I loved that the pecans came on the side for people who don't eat them. I was so impressed that the pork chop was fried fresh and the service was great. I went during lunch time and they were busy but I got my orders quivker than I thought I would. I will be back soon because I really want to try the chicken and waffles.

Friendly and great food

Wow ! Wow ! My favorite lunch spot in Birmingham, Al! Black Owned Business! Very diverse customer base! I love the food! I always order a waffle and a side of shrimp! I love the fact that they remember me and my order when I come in! Food is always hot! This restaurant is in a prime location downtown and the seating is good! I love the atmosphere! Great for young entrepreneurs to meet for Lunch as well as the 9-5 employee to grab a bite to eat ! If you go tell them Whitney sent you ☺️

Virgobeauty

Food is great , my favorite is the wings&waffles and hot wing plate. Hot wings are the best in town. Customer service needs improving and wait time.Things run better when Crystal is working the front.

Cyrondys Jackson

Love the food here and the owners make you feel as though you are joining them for a Sunday dinner at their home. The butter sauce for the waffles is amazing. Shrimp n Grits, yummy chicken and the Pork Chop! Would have given 5, but they run out of chips every Tuesday!

Shanese Shields

Great food and even better service.

shanique sanders

Wonderful food !! This is by far the best experience I have ever had in a restaurant. Crystal the owners daughter is the sweetest and most pleasant !!!! Great atmosphere

Jessica Burton

Good food all day.

Blake Porter

Excellent food.

Jessica Dugas

Customer service was great. The restaurant was super busy but the nice lady taking orders (owner?) was very vigilant in seating waiting customers immediately upon others leaving a table. The food. OMG. The food was tantalizingly delicious. I've never had gluten free (GF) fried chicken before even though we eat gluten free daily. It was the best fried chicken I'd ever had. The FLAVOR! Wow! We also had GF waffles, pancakes, and french toast. All were very tasty. We live in Louisiana but would LOVE to stop in again one day!

Michael Neely

Excellent service and food.

Zipilha Jones

Food was awesome. Love it!!!!

Marc Davis

The tilapia plate was pretty awesome!

Kaneesha Wheeler

I went for brunch on the Saturday before Mother's Day, and it was packed. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available. After tasting the food, I understand why the line was so long. I had the shrimp and crab omelette. It's important to note that it's actual delicious crab meat and not imitation crab. There was plenty of both shrimp and crab throughout the omelette. The gouda cheese was nicely melted to hold it together. The potatoes were well seasoned. That biscuit was made with love and possibly buttermilk. Everything was hot and fresh! My wallet is thankful this isn't available daily.

Tsukiyama Shuu

I'm gluten intolerant, i havent had fried chicken in a while because of obvious reasons. But i can eat there wothout any problems. The food is fantastic!!

DeJanae Bell

Absolutely awesome. The staff are sweet and hospitable. I had catfish and grits, my friend had shrimp and grits. We agreed the meals were delicious. Will be returning definitely.

Lance Huffstutler

The food is really great. However, the restaurant is small and the food is made to order which is hard to go on a lunch break or run in and get out in a reasonable amount of time

Josh Smith

Yo Mamas is our absolute favorite spot for brunch in Birmingham! They aren’t open every Saturday for brunch but when they are you have to be there. The atmosphere is very friendly, feels like you’re at a family meal with everyone there. The chicken and waffles (gluten free or not!) with their homemade syrup is my jam but I’ve tried several things and love them all.

Pamela Baxter

Great vibes and great soul food! I really loved being so comfortable here! Great job!

Adam Haas

Shrimp & Grits are amazing!!

Andrew Crommie

Yo mammas is definitely on the top 3 for a good chicken and waffle plate.

Elicia .Jacob

Love this place...I had the chicken wings, cole slaw, greens & cornbread. Very tasty food and the owner's attitude shows she really appreciates her customers!

Jerome Morgan, Jr.

Friendly staff, great food open and clean environment.

Sammie Bibb

Great place. Great food. Great people.

Ethan Smith

This place is outta control good. Everything fried is gluten free, so if you or someone you love can't have gluten, Yo Mama's will fulfill your wildest dreams. Gluten free: chicken and waffles, fried chicken, fried shrimp, fried fish tacos, hamburgers, etc. You want it? They got it. A true Birmingham treasure, and the staff is hilarious, friendly, and helpful.

Aaron Williams

Really good food but a long wait time.

Jay Hoeffer

Friendly service, great food. I could eat several servings of the cheese grits - so good. No so great for vegetarians.

Craig

I stumbled across this restaurant with a map search. When I reviewed the menu it shows every meal has a gluten free option. Being I must eat gluten free because of an intolerance this was a treasure find for me. I ordered the fried fish plate gluten free with fries and slaw. What an outstanding lunch. I will be returning in a day or two to try another dish. I hate I didn't know about it sooner. This is worth a visit if you haven't been.

Judah Sixsmith

The restaurant is incredibly spacious. There is also an outside patio for dining. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in search of authentic soul food. This food not only hits the spot, it hits the heart. Side note: This Is It has some of the most excellent and polite staff in Houston. Especially, Cameron. She sprinkled some of her kindness on to our dining experience and made it 10x more memorable. I will definitely be coming back!

Yolande Turner

They are genuine nothing fake about them and precook wings.

Candace Padgett

Delicious food that is either gluten free or can be modified to be gluten free,. Must try the chicken and waffles with their housemade syrup.

Rex McDonald

Fantastic tasting food and good service combine to give a great experience to anyone looking for tasty lunchtime goodness. Grits, chicken and waffles, burgers, tacos, and a lot more. They know exactly what makes up everything the cook and can accommodate a good variety of dietary requirements. I highly suggest this spot if you're downtown looking for a spot.

Gary Clark

Food was great and staff was very professional provided great customer service.

Marcus Larkin

The food is flavorful, as well as the crew. This is really one of favorite local restaurants.

James Bevil

Great place with great food.

Katina Foster

Seating can be tricky food not cheap but worth the price. Unique breakfast menu. Busy with line out the door moving smoothly through the ordering process. Must order and pay before seating. Loved the look and feel of the place. Workers were no fuss down to earth efficient and friendly enough to get the job done.

Burthia Booker

Pretty neat place with great food and even better service/ staff. Get there early, the place is not large and it is very popular. Definitely on my list of Birmingham greats.

Karen Porter

It was a fundraiser, long line; but, my shrimp and grits were worth the wait.

LaKesha K.

Extremely nice staff. The only downside to this place is the size of the building. I wish continued success and pray they decide to branch out with other larger locations. We ordered chicken and waffles, a pancake breakfast, and the French toast breakfast. Along with an omelette filled with sausage, ham and cheese. The sides were an order of cheese grits and skillet potatoes. For drinks we tried the pink lemonade and the fruity punch they offer. The star of this restaurant is the fried chicken. You can order all flats or drumettes, but the order comes with a combination of both. Well seasoned fried chicken, paired with a fluffy waffle and their homemade syrup which tastes like a combination of melted brown butter and maple syrup. Please go give this place a try. Squeeze in and get to know the other patrons. You won't be sorry. I look forward to my next visit so I can try the shrimp and grits. Enjoy!

Brenda Chapman

Awesome love the food and service.

Jim Craig

They get crowded quickly because of small dining area, but best to eat there

Nichole Olson

Stopped here on our way from Chiago to Florida, so glad we did! We tried almost everything. Shrimp tacos, fish tacos, chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, salmon special. Get ready for a food high, because everything was comfort food heaven. I usually get grilled fish but the fried was amazing. Get a side of the hot wing sauce for your chicken, shrimp or fish for extra kick. Service was phenomenal and friendly, cooks, servers and hostess. We will be back!

Clay Comer

Great food and atmosphere. I would take a customer there for lunch anytime!

Mrs. Laqnda Hammonds

I ate here for the first time about a month ago and it was good. I had their fried chicken and waffles. My friend had their grits and shrimps. The serving size was huge we ended up taking some home.

Gregory Ridgel

Amazing food. Truly feels like you eating at Yo' Mama's house. Some of the best food I've had in B'ham. I'm definitely coming back.

Kween Witta K

The best hands Down! From the customer service to quality of service! Hopefully they'll expand their location & open some weekends at least...

Mary Powell

Stopped in Bham on the way to ATL, boyfriend had chicken and waffles w/ house syrup! The chicken was so hot and juicy. I had shrimp tacos and they were tasty!

Jayda Marable

This was my first experience at yo’ mama’s and I must say it was literally awful. The lady that checks you out at the front was so sweet! I think her name was kristy, But it went down hill from there, we waited for more than an hour, when the food finally came out..they told us they ran out of cheese gifts and smoked sausage (we had already paid for these things, there was no option to get your money back) the lady that gave me the food I think her name is terry was just so rude, I asked her what was the yellow stuff in the cup and she just caught a whole attitude (again it was my first time) i didn’t know it was some type of special syrup! the food was amazing but the customer service was awful! If you don’t want to be there then leave..

Mike Woods

Shrimp and Grits were OK. Everything else was pretty pedestrian (fish) or bad (wings). SAVOR -2 out of 5

We and my guest really enjoyed the crispy fried chicken. The hospitality was amazing. The service was fast and the cleanliness was superb. I only gave a 4 because the waffle batter was too thin and flat. It didn't give me waffle ...it gave me pancake.

Ronunda Deloatch

The customer service was outstanding!!! The food was amazing.

Louise Hill

Food and service are outstanding. Price fits the quality of food received and having a gluten free menu is a huge plus. Highly recommended!

Taffaly Monroe

Great as always, awesome customer services

Jake Park

Best chicken and waffles, withoutta doubt.

Alicia Watkins

Food is soooooooo good, I don't leave disappointed. Great service. Only wished they had more space to sit instead of having to wait for a table; usually tho about the time your food is ready you might have a table.

Bishop Gambit

The catering is top notch! The food and service was professional, friendly, and delicious! With the amount of food brought to our event, everyone was able to leave with some easily. The fried chicken and roast we had was fresh and hot as if it were prepared on the spot. Keep up the good work and definitely will be going back for seconds.

Brittany May

My sister and I ate here for lunch today. She has to have gluten- free food and this was top rated. Everything in the restaurant is gluten free and it is so incredibly delicious. We had the chicken and waffles, fried shrimp, grits, homemade fries, and gallons of homemade sweet tea. You must must must try this place! The first time my sister has had fried shrimp, fried chicken, or a waffle in a really really really long time. A destination restaurant! They have a dedicated workspace for gluten-free folks and a completely separate waffle iron for the gluten-free waffle.

Mom of Two Goldens

Good food! Loved the chicken and waffle.

Biju Nair

Great food and awesome staff who strike a friendly accord with everyone. Clean environment and fast serving makes this a perfect location for lunch.

Jared Ross

Take a break from the bham i20/65/59 construction traffic as you're passing through and stop here for the best and most unique wings you've ever tasted.

Say Cheese

We had been seeing them on Instagram and family members told about this place so we traveled 165 miles from Atlanta to try it out and we wouldn’t mind doing it again. The food was absolutely delicious and that Crystal will make you feel like family before you leave. I had the chicken chicken and waffle and my girls had the shrimp and grits. We love Yo Mama’s!!!

peaceintime 07

The food was delicious! Definitely worth the wait. Big portions.

Loved the fried wings at this place! I had never been there before but was definitely impressed with the warm and gracious customer service. The crispy and seasoning of the wings was the best ever. No need for hot sauce or any other kind of sauce. Other sauces were available. The cheese grits were perfection!

Stannesha Purifoy

Food was delicious!! Loved the hot wings.. going back for the pork chops and mac n cheese. The cashier was very helpful also.

jessica easterling

Food was so good! Shrimp and grits was awsome! Best breakfast so far in Birmingham! I loved it.

Jamise Sullivan

The food was absolutely delicious. HOWEVER, when paying with a card you are asked to tip at the time of your order. After tipping 15% up front our order was forgotten. After 4 groups were served that came in after us were served we inquired about our food. After 5 total requests we just ate what we were given even though it was incorrect.

Amy Huang

Awesome food! Love the shrimp and grits. Hot wings ate tasty too.

Keith McGee

Great comfort food!

chad rohrbach

Food was fantastic and the portions were huge.

Loco Mole

Good lightly battered fried chicken on waffle (like tempura batter), good omelette. The home fries potato would be great if it wasn't too salty. BUT on Saturday mornings when they are open (not every Saturday), the kitchen can get overwhelmed and slow. Be ready for a long wait... took 40 minutes from the time 2 of us stepped in, waited in line, ordered, stood around waiting for a table, then sat waiting for our food. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I just wished they find a better system in the kitchen. It's a small kitchen, so it's difficult, but I have to take 1 star off for an honest review (including for the over-salted home fries).

Christina Jowers

I absolutely love Yo Mama's! It ran by a wonderful black woman who makes delicious food and offers outstanding service. I am totally hooked on the chicken and waffles witg fresh fruit! If you haven't been there get in your car and head downtown because you are missing out on life. Love Yo Mama's!!!***

carolorbill pollak

What a terrific find as we were passing through the city! First of all, good people! They made us feel right at home and helped to pick out what to order. We overdid it, lol, but had to try so many of the options that were available as gluten free. Huge portions and amazingly tasty chicken & waffles, french toast, peach cobbler, grits, mac & cheese, etc. Crystal really hooked us up with a feast! To top it all off, deep fried Oreos are just ridiculously good. Make this a must go stop if you are in the Birmingham area and worth a detour if you are anywhere close by.

Octavia Harmon

I worked here 2 years after its GRAND opening... Glad to see the service and employee trust has built up a strong following Loved my position as lead prep cook and would kill to work here again(because the owner is to be cherished) great ambiance and the wings are the forever winner in my book... And I've eaten Alot of wings THANKS YO MOMMAS

Tiffany Bishop

That chicken is so good! Good lawd!

Rikesha Foster

My co-workers and I decided to go to lunch here today. I like the decor, motif and music of the restaurant and feel that it's trendy but intimate at the same time. I love the fact that they didn't skimp on putting their brand on the cups and the wrappings. Little things like that are impressive to me. Because I don't eat wings and I'm not a fish lover, I ordered the BBQ Burger. Overall, the sandwich was good, but nothing to write home about. My coworkers enjoyed their plates, especially the one that ordered the shrimp and grits. I was deeply disappointed because they were out of peach cobbler, even though it was advertised. I would like to go back to try one of the meal of the day specials next time. Maybe I'll have better luck with those dishes. I'll also go back for brunch one Saturday when it's offered.

Sylvia Adongo

The Chicken and Waffles are soooooooo good. Quick and polite service and it was at a reasonable price. Cool atmosphere too, it's a must for any and all foodies visiting Birmingham.

Molṑn Labé

MUST VISIT!!! This place is firing both barrels at the same time. The food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I’m not sure what kind of voodoo magic they put on their chicken, but it paired so well with their waffle syrup that it was pure bliss. The Mother/ Daughter team was fantastic. I would drive from OMAHA just to eat here again.

Lisa Gray

Me & my husband love going here for lunch. Excellent customer service and delicious food! They never disappoint! The chicken and waffles are our favorite!

Carol Walker

My first chicken and waffles! And I was able to have it gf(Celiac disease)...extra bonus! They make their own syurp in house, best ever!

Wen Chen

Amazing, unpretentious hot chicken and chicken and waffles eatery with strong neighborly vibes. Quality control is serious, with each fried chicken wing piece sizable and freshly cooked to perfection. Pillowy soft waffles that are nearly sog-proof and dreamy, homemade, house syrup. Lemonade and sweet tea are old school and hit the spot. Be ready to feel at home.
