Chef Wayne's Big Mamou has a reputation for being the best Cajun restaurant in Western New England. Chef Wayne brings a touch of New Orleans to Massachusetts with more than just his fabulous, hot, hot Cajun food. The place is small, bustling, and lively in atmosphere.
You’ll see a huge mural on one wall and a good number of photos and artworks. Visitors can also see the open kitchen where chef Wayne works wonders and makes delights such as Les Bons Temps Rouler - the good times roll. The appetizers are all fabulous, and you might be tempted to order one of everything.
Leave some space for Chef Wayne’s large plates, which include dishes like Louisiana Lenny's Sausage'n Chicken YaYa, made with Andouille sausage wrapped with chicken breast and generously seasoned with Creole spices. The dish comes with Cajun country tomatos, herbed rice, cornbread, and mushroom gravy.
