Big Momma's is not far off the interstate. It is worth the detour. Delicious fried chicken, okra, rice and gravy, okra, and cornbread. The staff at Big Momma's are friendly and nice. We left there very full and happy we went there.

We stopped to eat lunch with our entire family. The ladies who were working were so friendly and helpful! The food was delicious, and the pound cake was awesome! We all left completely full and didn't even eat dinner that night!
