My wife and I had heard about Big Momma's and read several reviews so we went there for lunch yesterday. Initially we passed it thinking it was a used car out front. But, thats because the place was full. We walking in and were greeted with a smile and warm welcome. Even tough it was crowded people were moving quickly... More

We went for lunch on a weekday. It was moderately busy, but service was timely and staff friendly. The meats were just right and not over-cooked or dried out. Their strong suit is the side items, especially the collard greens and hot-water cornbread. Portions are large, providing leftovers to take home. This restaurant is definitely worth the trip from Ruston.

Service was slow and seemed a bit disorganized. Maybe I got that at a busy time. I tried the chicken since I read that the chicken was good. Needless to say, I've had much better chicken before. There really wasn't a large selection of food to choose from. I tried it. It was okay. If I never have it again,... More

They only have BBQ chicken on Friday. I highly recommend a visit on that day. Well any day is good but especially Friday.

If you like good plate lunches, then Big Momma's Fine Foods is your place. I like the fried chicken and fried pork chops with rice and gravy, turnip greens, and green beans. They offer a lot of good selections each day. The price is good and a friendly environment.

I was stuck on Monroe on business and my friend who knows about my obession with fried foods told me to try this place. I was worried when I first saw place given the neighborhood was pretty run down. When I first walked the smell of heaven hit me. The food is made by family who love what they do.... More

Driving through Monroe on the way to help relatives in south Louisiana dealing with flood waters, and realizing that lunchtime had struck, a quick search of the internet turned up Big Momma's. As a bonus, it was an easy off and back again about 8 blocks from I-20. A fairly recent review on Yelp said the place was locked up... More

Sooooooo good. Good for the tummy and good for the soul. Found it on a road trip through Trip Advisor. The good reviews got us to leave the highway to go 8 blocks to find the best food I've had north of Lafayette. We were there on a Monday which featured fried chicken, fried pork chops, and chicken fried steak,... More

I was there on a Friday and tried the special of the day, fried chicken. The chicken was great. Fresh, steaming hot, not greasy. Other meat choices included BBQ ribs & catfish. Lots of choices for sides, all fresh, looked and tasted great. Portions were huge, prices very reasonable. (Don't expect a menu or anything exotic like that - just... More
