We serve the Best Mac-n-Cheese!
The Large Brothers legacy began over 35 years ago when the family owned Mabry’s Open Air Market in Portsmouth, VA, during the 70’s and 80’s. During that time, the family business was the cornerstone between Brighton and Prentis Park. People traveled from near and far to get the area’s best crabs(live, steamed, and fried) ans the coldest beer and wine in town. The Mabry family also operated fresh fruit and vegetable trucks and mobile hot dog carts at local ballgames and neighborhood functions. In addition the family sold Christmas trees and pumpkins in four cities around Hampton Roads. This was all due to the vision, tenacity and hard work of our father; John L. Mabry, the areas’ 1st true entrepreneur.
Large Brothers Catering was created out of love for family and food! For the last 25 years, Large Brothers has participated in dozens of concerts, special events and festival such as Afram fesitival in Norfolk, Umoja in Portsmouth, and Africana in Virginia Beach. Large Brothers Catering has owned 3 restaurants, and has catered weddings, family reunions, church picnics, private events and community fundraisers for some of the area’s most well-known citizens.
