Day 2 of our Omaha Triple D adventure started with a trip to Boys Town. I'll post pictures of that later in the week. We decided to eat at Big Mama's Kitchen. Big Mama's is located on the Turning Point Campus which used to be the Nebraska School for the Deaf. It was little difficult to find but well worth the search.
I couldn't work up the courage to try the pigs ear. Still I wanted to be adventurous so I tried the Afro Burger. Chris tried the oven fried chicken Both were exceptional.
Afro Burger This looks like a brat, but it's not. Hand-rolled choice ground beef with a fiery hot blend of seasonings, simmered in Big Mama’s Spicy BBQ Sauce, & served on a fresh hoagie bun Featured on “Diners, Drive ins and Dives”. I don't usually like spicy food but this was an exception to the rule. I loved it...although I did have to pace myself with sips from the Cranberry Sun Tea, bites of cole slaw and sweet potato fries.
Big Mama’s Oven Fried Chicken You won’t believe this chicken is fried in the oven! Our chicken is season with Big Mama’s own rub, marinated in buttermilk dusted with flour and oven fried to golden brown perfection. This is without a doubt the best fried chicken we have ever tasted at a restaurant.
Dessert was an easy choice. Sweet Potato Pie and Sweet Potato Ice Cream. It looked so delicious we had it hald eaten before we realized we forgot to take a picture of it. So we copied these pics from their menu.
After we were stuffed with the most amazing food from our triple D adventure, I checked out the numerous pictures that were on display. I went back to my table and found our waitress and Big Mama. They brought me a birthday cake...and then sung "Happy Birthday" to me. Our waitress had a beautiful voice.
We took the cake with us back to our hotel. It was just as good. Although I was surprised it wasn't a sweet potato cake.
If you're ever in Omaha, check out Big Mama's. Don't be in a hurry. Everything is made to order so it is longer dining experience than we're accustomed...However, it is worth every second you wait for your food.
