Slap Yo Momma BBQ and Soulfood specializes in Pit Style BBQ and signature Southern soul food dishes.
Husband and wife restauranteurs, Marvin and Shanea, are no strangers to cooking and serving up soul food. The couple previously owned and operated two locations in San Diego before recently relocating to Murrieta.
Shanea says the pandemic presented challenges and months long delays as far as getting their city permits and inspections. However, by July 2021, they were able to open fully and have been in high demand ever since.

Slap Yo Momma BBQ and Soulfood is prepared fresh daily. On my visit I ordered Fried Chicken, Greens, Cornbread, Mac n Cheese, Fried Fish and Yams.
Honestly, the food smelled so good I dived in and took a bite of the Red Snapper before remembering to take the pic of my plate-lol.
I especially liked the Greens and Chicken. The chicken was cooked to perfection just how I like it. The Fish was also good and everything was tasty.
I'm saving the whole BBQ situation for my next visit as my plate was already full and generously proportioned. It was a meal and a half!
As I have been touring the Inland Empire for soul food, I would have to say this has been one of the best experiences my taste buds have had so far.
Slap Yo Momma BBQ & Soulfood is open for carryout Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm to 7pm, or until the food sells out- which it typically does so by 6pm.
You can place orders online for pick up via their website. Limited outside dining tables and chairs are also available. Catering is also available.
Slap Yo Momma BBQ & Soulfood is located at 29992 Hunter Rd Ste 102 Murietta, CA 92563.
