Head west on Broadway as far as you can, a block before the last light, you’ll see Big Momma's in a small white building to your left. Like most good and interesting places to eat, the outside is not much, a concrete building that looks like it has seen better days. The lot in front is tiny so the best place to park is on the street.

Behind the counter and glass partition are trays of food, giving you a preview of the good stuff to come. Above the counter is the menu with changing entrees for each day of the week. When you're ready, order by speaking into the microphone at the counter, the ladies behind the glass will fill it up in a Styrofoam to go container. Main dishes vary slightly between salmon croquet, ribs, baked chicken, smothered pork chops, fried fish, etc. Fried chicken is offered every day. Side dishes include cabbage, mac & cheese, beans, mash potatoes, okra, etc. An entrée and 2 side dishes will cost you around $8 or $9.

Big Momma’s is the kind of place whose main focus is on the food rather than on the décor, with a reputation built by satisfied diners rather than big ads or a fancy website. It’s one of those rare local neighborhood gems that offers good simple home cooking that’ll remind you of your own momma (although it’ll have to be a momma that likes to cook and cook soul food well).
