"Thank you so very much for the great sandwiches and soup AND most of all for delivering the food. We are very thankful for the gluten free food and for the excellent customer service!"

"My boyfriend and I were on our way to Chipotle when I saw that Mama's made a grilled cheese with 2 cheeses, tomato, and aioli. I was sold. The service was fast and the prices were perfect for a sandwich shop near a college campus. The grilled cheese was gooey and sweet (I haven't stopped talking about it since lunch yesterday). It's great to know of a spot that makes good comfort food for when I'm missing home."
