Kat has created a second home to many people and families that reside in the San Marcos area. Kerry Lindsey, a San Marcos local and dedicated Mama Kat’s fan says, “I’ve been going to Mama Kat’s since I first moved to San Marcos my freshman year of college; since then I’ve tried pretty much everything on the menu. I’ve yet to try something I don’t like. There’s a grandma’s house vibe in the restaurant and going on in the kitchen in the amazing flavor in all the food! Those chicken and waffles never let me down. Any time I want good, real home cooking and great service, I know Mama Kat’s is just down the road. Get there early on the weekends, there’s always a line and for a good reason!”
