We don’t need to brag about Big Mama’s Kitchen – these dishes speak for themselves and you've heard it loud and clear if you’re a fan of food TV. Big Mama’s soul food has become a television culinary staple, featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Sundance Channel’s Ludo Bites America and Travel Channel’s 101 Tastiest Places to Chow Down (ranked #56). Visitors travel from all around the world to taste her soulful signature dishes – so what are you waiting for? Sink your teeth into the Afro Burger, but don’t be fooled by its brat-ty appearance, the hand-rolled ground beef is filled with fiery seasoning and topped with spicy BBQ sauce. Try other favorites like Big Mama’s Oven-Fried Chicken, Pig Ear Sandwich or the Sweet Potato Pie ice cream.
Big Mama’s talent is too big for one restaurant. In 2013, she opened Big Mama’s Sandwich Shop specializing in quick fixes for comfort food cravings such as gourmet sandwiches, wraps, soups and homemade ice cream.
