Mama Nita’s 11007 Allisonville Road Fishers In.

I found this place by accident a few weeks ago on my way to my son’s new house. They are an Italian food restaurant which offers the trio of Italian fare. Pasta, Pizza and subs.

However their main bag is the buffet; $5.99 for lunch. Honestly Pat and I were dubious about this joint because we really didn’t expect much for 6 bucks. Boy were we ever wrong.

It isn’t a large buffet but the quality of the pies is excellent. Both the sauce and crust were top-notch. They offer a basic salad service and they are constantly replenishing the pizza, keeping about 8 of them on deck at all times. The man even takes requests. He made Pat a mushroom no onion and a cheese burger pie; with dill pickle; for a couple of other guys. I think that is what I liked best about Mama Nita’s the guy put out pies with different toppings; not just the traditional. Buffalo and BBQ chicken and bacon plus he wasn’t afraid to load up different veggies.

They even have bread sticks and some are stuffed with pepperoni.

I know the pictures aren’t much but you know I have issues with taking pictures of buffets. For your sweet tooth there is a small freezer at the end which holds ice cream sandwiches. Only one per customer regardless how cute you are. He also has a cinnamon pie. It is simply a pizza loaded with cinnamon sugar and topped with a white icing. Like a breakfast bun.

I thought that was great, especially hot out of the oven. Try a slice with an ice ream sandwich.

So like that adage about books and covers you should never judge a pizza joint by its pricing. Here you will get an exceptional meal as well as an exceptional value. With the senior discount lunch for 2 was $11.17 with tax. Worth the trip.

  1. $6???????????? How is that possible? I haven’t found a pizza buffet under $10 in years (unless you count Cici’s but GROSS and NOPE). So your whole dining ticket was the price of one normal buffet, and you didn’t even have to tip. The cinnamon pie looks amazing. Good thing you don’t live next door; it would be tempting!

    • If I lived closer I could definitely say goodbye to my boyish figure. Actually I did throw a few bucks in a tip cup. Just how I roll.
