Review of Yo' Mama's

2328 2nd Ave N, Birmingham, AL 35203

Overall Rating


“Gluten Free Glory” “Gluten Free Gold” “Perfection in a Purple Bag”. I cannot explain in words how amazing their food is. Diagnosed 10 years ago with Celiacs, I thought the days of bread and fried foods were over. Nope, I just hadn’t found the best gluten-free restaurant ever. The hamburger is wonderful alone but the gluten free bun takes this burger to gluten-free gold. The fried shrimp plate truly made me realize how much I missed eating great seafood. The gluten-free chicken and waffle is worth the drive from anywhere. The waffle with their handmade syrup was gluten-free glorious. I ended my meal with an actual dessert. YES DESSERT! Fried oreo cookies. The only reaction I have is a full stomach because I try to eat all I can before I drive an hour and a half back home. Perfection in a Purple Bag!!! Yep, I usually order at least 3 plates to go!!! I travel a lot. Several states and not one could compare to this place. It will definitely make you want to slap “Yo Mama”. No disrespect.
