After our trip to McAlester today, Raegan said that she would like to have fried chicken. We thought about it for a minute, and thought of Mama E’s. A quick check of Google showed that Mama E’s was open until 1900, and it was 1815, so off we went, getting there about 1830.
The ops concept is to check out the pre-made meals that are available. We all got some variation of two pieces of fried chicken, and each box had two sides (greens, mashers, mac and cheese). You also get a cup of punch-of-the-day, and a piece of cake.
The chicken had decent taste. I think they were a bit on the small side, and it was pretty clear that the birds had not been cooked shortly before we arrived. The sides were good also.
So my advice, if you are visiting Mama E’s, get there earlier than we did. You will get a better selection.
We finished and left right at 1900. Our check was $34.46. Good value, not a gut-buster meal, and all of the staff was super friendly. A nice place to visit.
