As many reviewers have noted, Big Mamou isn't located in the nicest area but this certainly shouldn't prevent you from giving this place a try. My girlfriend and I stopped in for lunch and were amazed by how flavorful each dish was. They have many different combinations of jumbalaya and different meats, each with a unique, spicy sauce that lights... More

Went there for lunch during the week. Fairly crowded but found a table within minutes. Waitress was helpful and friendly. Food was yummy and plentiful.

Outstanding food in a cozy setting. All of the dishes are outstanding but the signature crawfish jumbalaya is to die for!

Great food in a small restaurant where everyone is treated like a regular. Don't expect the ritz, just expect Delicious New Orleans Cajun food in a restaurant that is nondescript on the outside but is French Quarter on the inside. There may be a wait for dinner but great thing is its BYOB so you can enjoy the wait and... More

This little place packs a BIG punch of flavor.... We were so glad we got to stop in again for the best rice and beans on the planet. The cornbread is divine. We finally got to try those thunder thighs and they were fantastic . Every time we come to Springfield we just have to stop here. This time we... More

We were in the Springfield area and wanted to try something different. We found this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We arrived for lunch around 1pm on a weekday. It was standing room only at the time and we had to wait 10-15 minutes. If you are going for lunch on a weekday, I'd recommend that you go after... More

This is a must try place if your in the area!!! They have a website so review that before going, but the waitress we had was very patient with us and answered all our questions. Loved the food here, will not be disappointed. Try the dessert too. Probably not a place that your younger kids would like based on the... More

Arrived around 7:00 on a Friday night and had only about a 10-minute wait for a table. The place is small so you'll be sitting close to the next table but it's not annoyingly close. Fortunately, we had read the reviews so we knew it is a BYO place. We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was just... More

My wife and I went a little out of our way to try this, based on the very positive reviews. We weren't disappointed. We went for lunch. From the outside, it is pretty nondescript part of a block, away from the Springfield downtown. Don't let that chase you away - the inside is small but cute, and when we were... More
