Big Mama's Rib Shack

 1453 N Lake Ave
Pasadena, CA

Best BBQ in the Area

“Honey, if the Colonel could have fried chicken like Big Mama, he would have been a General.”

I had juicy dark meat fried chicken and so far, I think it’s the best I’ve had other than my aunt’s home made fried chicken. The batter is seasoned just right that it has just enough salt and a bit of a peppery taste on the crispy fried skin. (For $1.50 more, you can get the white meat).

As people have already mentioned before, Big Mama’s is no shack, it’s a proper sit down place. On Sundays you can see families coming from service and even ladies still wearing their church hats. You can sit in the main dining area near the gigantic TV and watch whatever game is on or unfortunately for us last time, Fox News. (A side of aspirin please). Courtesy Thao L. @
