About Us

Big Mama’s Kitchen & Catering is a family-owned and -operated business specializing in soul food and traditional American cuisine. We offer a unique variety of delicious home-cooked appetizers, entrées, and desserts, but we’re best known for our famous oven-fried chicken and our delectable sweet potato pie ice cream!

Our catering service began over 40 years ago as a part-time home-based business in the kitchen of founder; Patricia “Big Mama” Barron. Acquiring her desire to cook for her beloved grandmother Lillie, Big Mama always wanted to own her on restaurant and in December of 2007 at the age of 62, she opened the doors of her first restaurant, “Big Mama’s Kitchen & Catering” uniquely located in the cafeteria of an old school formally know as the Nebraska School for the death.

In March of 2018 at the age of 76, Big Mama was called home to be with Jesus. Her legacy of good food, community and second chances will not be forgotten as her family is committed to growing and expanding the rich heritage, she created for them with the relocation of the original restaurant to the Highlander Neighborhood in January of 2020.
