Fantastic evening. BYOB establishment. Food was fantastic. I am a picky eater and left there desiring other items on the menu for my next visit. Get there before the doors open at 5:00 PM or you will wait for up to an hour and a half. Very satisfied first timer.

Stopped in for lunch. Had jambalaya which was delicious and satisfying, lots of shrimp and sausage. Especially enjoyed the cheese toast accompaniment. Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere. I checked out the dishes on the other tables and everything looked good. Easy street parking even on a weekday. Looking forward to a return visit.

My family came here and I had the meatloaf... Um... wow! SO GOOD! I loved the hot sauce and the flavors. The cornbread was PERFECT!!!! I told the waitress this was the best meatloaf I ever had and she said, "I guess I'll be seeing you in here more often"... I wish, I live in South Carolina, but man that... More

Springfield has many great places to eat and this place is a MUST. EVERYTHING about it is great, staff are friendly, plenty of parking, easy to find, great prices, and you can bring your own drinks. I've tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. You want great tasting New Orleans type dishes check this quaint place out.

Went on a date to Chef Wayne's Big Mamou and felt as though I was in New Orleans. The service was fantastic, the food was even better, if you have not tried this place, you need to get there fast! It's awesome.

Lousiana cooking in Massachusetts how delightful!! I love this food! The serving sizes are more than what you can ask for! I grew up on creole cooking and the food tastes just like my grandmothers! The atmosphere is pretty relaxing although the should move into a bigger place. Business is growing! Any local will tell you to come HERE!!!

Big Mamou was recommended to us by a client. We went on a busy Saturday night and had a short wait for a table for 2. The place is in a stripmall type setting and smallish but the food and staff make it a big experience. I've not had authentic Cajun food previously so I was a bit hesitant. I... More

In my place of work, we always scheduled a lunch once a month at Big Manou. I have never been disappointed and I have been visiting for severa years now. The only disadvantage is the size of the restaurant and there is always a pain to find parking.
