Go there only because of the convenience - not their food! No comparison to the fresh vegetables at Golden Coral and their lunch is only $7.50 with drink for seniors!~ So, Big Mama's at just over $10 for lunch is NOT GOOD VALUE! Always out of things, pitch substitutes continually, always making excuses and get pissy when you bring their... More

I was hungry, alone after work and looking for good fresh country veggies and Southern cornbread. I found the veggies - some fresh, others not. Didn't care for the sweet cornbread. Dessert was a too-sugary-sweet pie. The service couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating and the price was very reasonable. I just do not like eating on Styrofoam. Way... More

The food is always excellent! You definitely get a good size portion for a great price! I've not had any bad experiences at Big Mamas! Great value and a peaceful view while you enjoy breakfast or lunch.

If you are looking for homemade comfort food, this is your place. It overlooks a gorgeous bayou, too. Everyday there are different meals offered on the menu and each is cooked fresh that day. Plus, there are so many sides to choose from that my eyes always get bigger than my stomach. I want to try all of it. Sadly,... More

This is a cute down home restaurant that over looks a marsh for that Louisana feel. The menu is custom for each day but everything is home made by mama and delicious greens and the sweetest sweet tea I ever had. Highly recommend.

Good old southern cooking at it's finest. Daily specials are a meat/fish and 2 sides for $7.95 or 3 sides for $8.95. All homemade and very generous portions.

Terrific country cooking and great prices. I you like Shrimp Creole you will enjoy it here. The steamed cabbage was wonderful, and so was the cornbread and Key Lime Pie. I recommend it. But don't go after 2 pm, they're closed.

We ate here for breakfast twice during our stay at The Buccaneer Hotel across the street (their restaurant is not open for breakfast- it was great country cooking and reasonable prices. Get a table in the rear overlooking the bayou.
