Miami New Times' Description

This is an authentic Italian-American joint, and that's a good thing. Take Mama Jennie's spaghetti and meatballs, please! The meatballs are a masterpiece. Tip to big eaters: Mama's meat sauce is even more concentrated than that on the spaghetti and meatballs -- and spaghetti with meat sauce is all you can eat for $7.95. Those not in the mood for red sauce should know that, strange though it may sound, the balls go great with what always was the one classic Italian-American white-sauce offering, spaghetti with garlic and oil (also available at Mama J's with broccoli). The veal marsala here has, besides meat, a ton of fresh mushrooms and an almost pot roast-rich thickened brown gravy. And it's just as good as pot roast, too. Enhanced, perhaps, by half-carafes of quite drinkable burgundy for $8.25, and pitchers of beer for $4.50 (small) and $6.95 (big). All entrées come with soup (hearty minestrone) or a hefty dinner salad with mixed lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickled peppers, brined olives, and choice of dressing (creamy Italian's good; vinaigrette with crumbled bleu cheese is worth the extra 50 cents), plus some knockout garlicky rolls.
