Yummy!!! – The BBQ chicken sauce was delicious and the meat simply fell off the bone. My husband like his ribs. There are many sides to choose from as well. I can't wait to try their gumbo and catfish. We had sweet potato pie for dessert and it was good.

Nice & spicy – The jambalaya had a nice spice to it, not too toned down like most restaurants. The ribs were tender and juicy with a little kick. The decor is interesting but a little sparse; the service was fast but could have been a little warmer. I'm planning to go back to try some other dishes. It's too bad this restaurant isn't in Old Town or South Lake or it would get a lot more business. I'm glad it's here though!

Great Service...Yummy Food – After reading the outstanding review in the LALA Times we headed straight down to get some BBQ. The service was fantastic. The food very good. The ambiance eclectic but comfortable and inviting. The prices reasonable.
If you want wannabe hoity toity BBQ, head somwhere else...BUT, If you want a good plate of BBQ in a neighborhood restaurant, head on down to Big Mamas!
