“Soul Food in Richmond, VA”

One of fourteen children of Willard and Alease Roland, Mama J was born and raised right here in Richmond, VA. As part of a family that large, along with her sisters and brothers, they took on a lot of responsibility around the house. One of those responsibilities was helping their mother in the kitchen. This is where she learned many of the recipes that are now served in Mama J’s. Mama J’s is a neighborhood restaurant based on the family tradition of going to grandma’s for Sunday dinner. Our goal is to combine great southern food with outstanding service in a relaxing atmosphere.  We prepare our food fresh daily on site, everything from Pan Fried Catfish to Candied Yams & Macaroni & Cheese to Homemade Cakes & Cobblers. The Mama J’s experience is designed to take you back to a simpler time where family gatherings were commonplace and everyone looked forward to them because of the food and fellowship. Come experience it for yourself and let us know what you think.
