The food is to die for. I have had many of their more popular dishes as well as the specialties and I will always be delighted. The place is tiny but luckily it is not famous, so I have not struggled to sit quickly.

The food is amazing at the Big Mamou, and t is like a party atmosphere. If you are bringing kids bring them for lunch, dinner is an adult crowd. Takeout is a good option for Saturday night when the line is long. The wait is...More

Excellent food and service. Lunch time can be busy be prepared to wait. Friday afternoon is fun. Chef Wayne like to join the guests in an afternoon beverage. It's BYOB for the spirits.

When I used to live in Springfield, Chef Wayne's was THE place for me to eat Southern or Cajun cooking!

Great, authentic Cajun food. Not overly spicy hot but great flavors. Hot sauce on the table added a nice kick. Friendly service.

I think that they do not take reservations. Just be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Also, it is a BYO for beer & wine. It's worth the wait...the food is delicious!

I looked on-line at their menus and didn't see that offering. They may rotate their menus and this would be served at other times during the year.
