In Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family, three generations of family and friends come together and live life at the dinner table. To commemorate the family dynamic and the living spaces at home and beyond where we celebrate our lives together, Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family is hosting a Restaurant Wars promotion in 23 markets across the country, including Philadelphia!
