Chef Wayne and his staff outdo themselves in creating Cajun cuisine. Anything on the menu is authentic Cajun and is just about as good as eating in NOLA.
The fried oysters melt in your mouth after a satisfying crunch of thin fried batter. Crawfish quesadilla is a standard order.
My favorite entree is the chicken etoufee.
It's a small space so it's common to have to wait for a table.
Friendly staff and fast service.
BYOB!

Went to Big Mamou for 1st time on Thursday afternoon. Pretty crowded as we got the last table. Went with the blackened chicken which was excellent (very moist) Cheese bread with corn was a great appetizer. After reading some of the reviews I was concerned about customer service but it turned out that the waitress and rest of staff were very responsive to our needs. Bottom line I wouldn't consider the food as authentic New Orleans cooking but I would definitely recommend dining here.

lots of great stuff on the menu from fish, to pork, to chicken and beef so there is something for everyone. I asked the waitress what was best on the menu and she said order one of everything and she was right

The food is fantastic. Great Cajun food for the price. The lunch orders are just out of this world. A must stop.

Being from Louisiana, I love to hit this spot from time to time for some tastes from home. Chef Wayne put's his own twists on the recipes so they aren't exactly the same as what I grew up with, but close enough! We are in Massachusetts after all. The food is delicious! The place has great atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. It's BYOB so hit the package store first!
