Fodor's Review

If you're craving creole food, this casual joint serves up some seriously good Louisiana cuisine. Owner-chef Wayne Booker stands behind the kitchen counter, and his hometown recipes, like sausage and chicken ya-ya (chicken breast wrapped around andouille sausage with creole spices) never fail to satisfy. Other favorites include shrimp-and-sausage jambalaya, barbecue pulled pork, and meat loaf. Added bonus: you can bring your own bottle.

Big Mamou Review

Before my trip, I heard that Springfield is coming into its own as a foodie town -- for a city of 160,000, it has a lot of culinary diversity. When I asked a Springfielder which restaurant he recommended, he said Big Mamou. I never would've noticed this place. It's a hole in the wall! I nearly walked by it until I smelled--yes, that smell of excellent food-and I followed it to Big Mamou. I live in San Francisco, a great town for foodies --

Big Mamou would be one of the most popular restaurants in San Fran, in my opinion. I find the food difficult to describe other than "wow!" and "yes!" :)
