    The food was delicious but what was even better was the service. The fried fish, homemade ice cream and sweet pot pudding was AMAZING! You would be crazy not to visit!

    The cranberry sun tea is AMAZING, and they have a gluten-free menu (and seriously rockin' fluffy gf pancakes). Recommended!

    Call ahead if you are looking for the pork tenderloin - it's a special - not part of the regular menu.

    Big Mama's fried chicken ROCKS! Ask for some "chow chow" on the side, and take home a pint of sweet potato pie ice cream!
