Sloppy service tonight, I ordered delivery. The key lime pie was a very small slice that looked as if it was thrown in the container.Missing Cajun fries and the coleslaw. Catfish was cooked way too long, felt like my head was shattering while eating. And why on earth do thy send these rock hard corn muffins when you order a sandwich? wayyy to much bread, just a waste because I have never eaten the muffins The owner called to tell me when the delivery service called them regarding the missing items he told them they were not missing, then he say he "tripled checked"and found they were in fact missing, it was their fault the items had not been added to the order. He had a smart alack attitude I didn't appreciate. I will not order from Big Mama's again.

Southerners in California for New Year’s Day and we needed our traditional New Year’s meal. Big Mama’s delivered! Delicious pork chops (both fried and smothered,) greens and, of course, black-eyed peas! Very yummy and comforting!

Went there for jambalaya and fried chicken and ended up seeing a great band. I’d go back in a heartbeat!
