We're Loyal to Local because our local businesses embrace community. 

Velma Johnson, aka the one and only Mama J, grew up cooking with her grandmother. Now her restaurant is a food destination in Richmond.



It's people like Mama J, who embrace our community and make you feel welcomed when you step through their doors. 
At Mama J's, you are treated like family. Mama J has perfected her family recipes so she can share those traditions with the community! Mama J's is more than just a restaurant, it's a place where you can feel at home and that makes us, even more, #LoyaltoLocal.




Mama J's Kitchen has become a staple here in RVA by continually celebrating tradition and encouraging fellowship throughout both the neighborhood and community.
