Welcome to Mama Ruth's Kitchen, where you are always invited and welcome to enjoy the best of gourmet soul food and southern cuisine!

Whether you prefer pick-up from our food trailer or custom catering services, we are here to serve you with all of your southern comfort needs.
Chef Michael Batman Rhodes has been offering his personal chef services for over a decade. In the summer of 2021, he launched Mama Ruth's Kitchen!
His menu is inspired from years of cooking family recipes with his mother, Mama Ruth Rhodes. ​Traditional southern dishes and comfort food favorites are presented with elevated flavors, presentation, passion, and SOUL.

Initially opened in Dallas, TX, his cuisine quicky earned regional recognition and awards in the first year of business; rated as one of the 'Top 5 Caterers', and nominated multiple times for his depth of flavors, skilled presentation and unique twist on familiar southern favorites. In the fall of 2022, Mama Ruth's Kitchen relocated to Las Vegas, NV with plans to expand its customer base and eventually open a permanent restaurant location in the popular culinary desert mecca.
"Everything I cook has both my mother’s heart, and my soul in it. I am here to serve with all my heart and feed the world damn good food!" - Chef Michael Batman Rhodes
