We had the Fried chicken, the crispy skin melts in your mouth. Macaroni and Cheese, Butter beans and rice, cornbread and sweet tea. If you are staying in the French Quarter just walk over to Canal St and catch the Street Car N towards the cemeteries and get off at Galvez St. You can walk down two blocks or catch... More

Home cooking that was absolutely wonderful. The fried chicken was the best we ever had. Seasoned green beans, and red beans and rice rounded out a beautiful lunch!

We were looking for some good old honest soul food and we found it at Willie Mae's. Checked was amazing and so tasty. The fried okra is a must!

Everything you've heard about this place is absolutely true! I went in to it thinking my expectations were way too high. I was dead wrong. The chicken is THE best chicken you will ever eat. The red beans and rice were outstanding and the fried pork chop was mouth watering. We will not go back to NO without going back... More

Honestly, it's true what the reviews say. This was the best fried food I tried. The batter is light and crispy with a lot of flavor. My husband had the chicken and I had the shrimp. It was just out of this world, and the red beans and rice were the best out of anywhere we ate in the french... More

A real local dive with awesome food and atmosphere. Go. Eat. Enjoy! The neighborhood is one of the hardest hit by Katrina. This place will be on my must visit spots.

If you have a chance to go to New Orleans, it will be worth your while to stop in at this establishment. The chicken is fantastic, just like the food network says. For 10.00 you get 3 pieces of chicken and 2 sides, the drink is extra. The chicken has a little kick to it but not really much, just... More

Willie Mae's fried chicken is aweful! I don't know why they have so many people going there and talking about how good the fried chicken is. It is greasy, and doesn't have a flavor. The restrooms are filthy!

Hubby was excited to eat here. He had the 3-pc chicken with mac and cheese and I had the pork chop with butter beans. Everything was very good and spicy but for us, it wasn't the best fried chicken ever. We've had better. Service was prompt. We arrived before noon on a Thursday so there was no wait, but it... More
