Big Mama’s Chicken and Waffle at Forest Audelia is closed temporarily, it seems, based on a handwritten sign on the window.

Big Mama’s is located in a sketchy area (see Dallas Police reports), but those big fat waffles were worth the risk and the hassle — line is usually long and they only take cash.

Anyway, rumor is that they suffered a kitchen fire and had to close. I haven’t actually been able to reach Mama or anyone else, but here’s wishing the little drive through a speedy recovery.
