Cheap and delicious. The pasta is great, and it's $5.50, also comes with salad and bread. Beer is cheap and cold. Can you ask for more? Small and cozy atmosphere, or should I say it is a dive bar with good food. Either way, won't break the bank and does the trick.
Mama's is an excellent bar/restaurant with a dive bar atmosphere. The only bad part is they don't have a full bodied beer on draught (Just Coors light and Bud light). They have a lasagna deal which comes with a side salad and garlic bread for $5.50--the deal is unbeatable. Great place to play darts, have a beer, and eat some food for relatively inexpensive prices.
Mama's is a tiny bar that has a tight group of customers/friends who have been frequenting it for years. Newbies and OSU students are welcome, but some faces stay the same. The food and drink is excellent, especially for the money. Don't miss draining down some excellent pasta/sandwiches(for only $3-5)/pizza with a cold one! To get there, go east on 15th from High St. (Long's Book Store's corner) by campus about 50 feet until you are forced to turn right onto Pearl Alley. The next alley to the right marks Mama's corner. There's a sign there. Yep, it's on the corner of two alleys, off of Pearl, between 14th and 15th. Good luck parking (it's easiest to park on 14th and walk half a block)!
