Located at 3223 N. 45th Street, on the Turning Point campus at Building A, is Big Mama’s Kitchen & Catering. Owned and operated by Patricia “Big Mama” Barron, the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for dining-in or carry-out. Featured on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” show with Guy Fieri, Big Mama’s has a strong reputation and a strong menu to back it up. My buddy Chuol Tuach and I had breakfast at Big Mama’s. I had the “Big Mama’s Omelet” and he had the “Lake Street Special.” Chuol loved the french toast, and my bacon omelet with fresh tomatoes, green peppers and American cheese was oh-so-tasty. After breakfast we wandered through the spacious dining area and admired the many family pictures and patron photos on the restaurant walls. Big Mama Patricia has been active helping others in the Omaha community; receiving many recognitions for her charity work. I love this quote from her business website, “Peace begins when the hungry are fed.” Indeed. The next time we visit, we’re going to have some Big Mama’s original Sweet Potato Pie Ice Cream. I’m guessing that’s a flavor we’ll not experience anywhere else. Give Big Mama’s a try. They’re open daily (closed Mondays) and their hours are listed on their website. Happy Motoring!
