Big Mama's has the best fried chicken ever. It is crispy and crunchy, but very tender meat. Their barbecue items are amazing and you won't go wrong with anything that you choose their. Sad to say that they have lost their lease due to a greedy landlord. Please visit them any time you can through this Sunday to show them how much they are appreciated in the neighborhood.

I had been looking for a place where I could get delicious soul food in the San Gabriel Valley for years, I finally found one! My favorites are fried chicken, fried orca, and peach cobbler and they have it all!
