One of the best meals we've ever had and we've had a lot all over the country. This kind of cooking reminds me of the Loveless Cafe in Nashville. Great home cooking. The Sweet Potato Pudding is a must try as is the Catfish. You can't go wrong with anything there.

I don't even know where to start. When you walk through the door you instantly know you've come to the right place. Amazing smell, only thing better is the food! The things to get: Afro burger (we ordered another one near the end of our meal), MAC AND CHEESE (it's the best I've ever had), red velvet cheesecake ice cream (homemade). Her granddaughter took our order and was really sweet and Big Mama came out and talked with us after the meal. Just amazing people serving amazing food. P.S. It can be a little difficult to find, it's in the school cafeteria (very cool once you see it). So if you're confused because you're at a school, time to park and go inside!

Pretty good food. Coleslaw could have been a bit less liquidy but very good will be going back for sure.

Big mama has so much history. Not only from her delicious food but also in the stories she can tell you from growing up in Omaha. You definitely have to try the sweet potato pie although everything is amazing.

I wish I could have tried the food, but I was never seated! I stood at the podium to be seated for at least 5 minutes as customers stared on what appears to be a not so busy Sunday. At least three staff members walked by me with out a greeting or assurance that I'd be seated. It sucks b/c I was surveying the place for an out of town banquet I brought to the area.

Came to Omaha for a wedding and between the rest of my family and myself we were extremely disappointed in both the quality of food in the area and the service. Thank God for Big Mommas. Great food everything made fresh to order ( does take a little time) and good service. At least someone knows how to make good food here.

Great comfort food and the staff is so fun! I had both breakfast and lunch fare an enjoyed both; The sweet potato pudding is amazing :) Big Mama herself came and sat with our group through our entire meal an shared her story with us. Overall a neat experience.

She has the best chicken in the area. Her selection of sides is great--something for everyone. The fried green tomato and raisin ice cream id delicious. Very nice and friendly staff. We even had the opportunity to meet BIG MAMA--she is such a sweetheart.
