Mama G’s Soul Food will open a second location Downtown!

Mama G’s Soul Food gets a second location Downtown!

Can’t decide on dinner? Why don’t we go and try Mama G’s Soul Food?

Ask anyone with a good head on their shoulders, and they’ll say that their mom is the best cook they know. Gloria Hairston has been cooking all her life. “It’s been my passion all my life. Me and my mom actually used to do catering. I started out doing sweet treats and fruit designs. I did Farmers Market at Metro eats, which that’s where my Mama G’s location is right now.”

That legacy in the cooking shows, and Mama G’s is oftentimes a packed house.

“It does sell out. It sells out pretty fast. I’ll look up and the lines out the door, and that’s why I decided to make the move and go ahead and do an actual sit-down location,” says Hairston.

Mama G’s is opening its second location in Downtown Springfield, just across from the old Hollywood Theaters. “Our first location is inside Metro Eats, 2463 West Sunshine, Suite 124. Then my second location will be opening at the end of June, and that’s downtown. It’s 210, South Market, Suite 124.”

Mama G’s is primed to be a new favorite, in this contributor’s humble opinion. They make a Shrimp boil, they offer rotating specials, the fried chicken even has a trade secret marinade, so you know it HAS to be good.

“There’s six things that I do. Fried chicken, meatloaf, and stuff like that. I have that available every single day. And then I add my special items, and I post them on Facebook.”

Mama G’s has been filling bellies over on Sunshine for a solid two years now, and with lines bursting out the door every day they’re opening of a second location is exactly what the business needs. Mama G’s is looking to bring good company, good smells, and even better food to Market Street.

If you’re a fan of the old shop, don’t fret!, “As long as we can handle two locations, we will keep those two locations,” says Hairston.

Why don’t we all go out to eat tonight? Mama G’s is currently serving dinner at 2463 W Sunshine from 5 pm-8 pm on Monday and Wednesday, 3 pm-8 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Lunch is also served on Thursdays and Fridays from 12 pm to 2 pm.

Food pictured: Salmon croquettes, hush puppies, chicken tenders, mac & cheese, Mama G’s salmon sauce.
