Big Mama’s Bbq Express

Each BBQ spot in the East St. Louis has something they do very well. My favorite things here are the snoot chips, BBQ wings, and the Carmel Cake... Which I take home to event a different dessert. I am not to keen on the sides, the portions are decent.
A complete shot in the dark. We are from Texas (yeah...yeah) and wanted some BBQ. Pulled up yelp and found this awesome little place. The menu is super simple and there is just enough variety to not over complicate things. I had the pork sammich that is topped with cole slaw...awesome and super messy. I also got the corn nuggets which were pretty awesome too. Don't know that I have ever had anything like them before. They came with a ranch dipping sauce. My girl got the $1 a piece whole wings. I was so-so on her sauce choice, but she loved em. Nice and messy too. The staff was rather pleasant, and even asked if we enjoyed it as we left. Give Big Mama's a try, you might enjoy it too.
Let me tell you. I was visiting from San Diego and my Family brought me here and it was amazing!!! I decided to order the broham sandwich and caramel cake. These items were purchased while going through drive-thru so there was a slight wait on the sandwich but when I received my food I was not disappointed at all. The bun was very soft and held very well was not too soggy and did not break. The Meat was my favorite part because it was seasoned perfectly with the right amount of sauce but also the meat was tender. I am a dessert freak so when I received the caramel cake and it was made well. I literally melted!!! The icing was very sweet but the cake was so moist it just disappeared with each bite. Well don't take my word for it, try it yourself. When I come back that is exactly what I will get.
