I recall my first Mama Faye experience in Deep Ellum. The family had a smoker set up in front of what is now Twenty-Seven on Elm Street. It was late at night and there were ribs and sausages to be had.
Since then I made the trek to their restaurant just down the road from that first experience, and enjoyed some very nice ribs.
Competition has heated up considerably in Deep Ellum, and Mama Faye is a bit of fall out from all the new restaurants popping up. Look for Mama Faye to re-open shop in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
