There are at least 6 fried chicken places near here, you'll have to pass most of them just to get to Big Mama's and you'd be a fool not to! By far the best fried chicken in Pasadena and quit possibly all of San Gabriel Valley. Every vegetable is done so fresh, tender and tasty. I dream about their candied yams will definitely have to be a part of any last meal I might have. Love that they carry Louisiana beers too! Abita, Dixie and Voodoo are beers you can't get everywhere. Big Mama's is worth the drive.

Love It! I've been wanting to try "Big Mama's" for awhile, and finally got my chance last night. I had the blackened catfish with a side of greens & hush puppies. I received a large catfish fillet, seasoned just right. I am a greens fanatic, & that being said, the collard greens were tasty and perfectly cooked. The hush puppies were a nice addition and were flavorful without being greasy. "Big Mama's" does a great job of providing quality, authentic, homestyle food, in a cozy yet elegant atmosphere. Our server, Darron, was charming, polite & helpful. We were excited to hear "Big Mama's" has started offering live music Tuesday evenings,with hopes of adding more entertainment on Fridays. I can't wait to go back and try something else!!!

Tasty ribs, and generous serving size Wonderful Ribs. Meat was tender. Good cornbread. Yummy coleslaw. Big portions, reasonable prices. Interior is nothing fancy to look at; but really who cares.

Big Mama's Rib Shack is just OK. A decent place to get barbecue, but nothing to write home about. The cornbread was dry -- a cardinal sin in my book. However, the meat was tender, and the sauce tangy. The macaroni and cheese? It was runny and strange-looking. Prices are reasonable. Overall, it was OK. Just keep in mind that there are better barbecue places out there.
