This was our second time going. This time we went later in the day and the chicken was not as crunchy. The beans were still the same, delicious.
I'm not a local, was in town for a few days. It was really good chicken, but I think the mashed potatoes and gravy were better. It was a little expensive for a chicken lunch (i got all white meat), but to say I have had it is worth it. I would go back again if I had an opportunity.... More
If you love fried chicken, you will love this place. This has got to be the best fried chicken I have had in a very long time. The seasoning was to die for. I could have just eat the skin and been happy. The chicken was tender and juicy. They really know how to cook chicken there. The parking situation... More
Best fried chicken ever. Comes to the table hot out of the fryer. Server, Eddie (great grandson) very friendly and helpful. We had red velvet cake for desert which was delicious. Take a cab from the French Quarter.
I've lived in and visit NO often, but had never eaten at Willie Mae's. On this recent visit it was on my must do list. I ordered three pieces mixed, and wanted and extra wing, but was told I could not buy the extra piece. Ok, that's odd, but OK. I also ordered fried okra and mac a cheese. The... More
Cool place to grab lunch, gotta get here early otherwise you will wait in line. Inside has picks of Louis Armstrong playing his trumpet along with other old publications of jazz musicians and New Orleans history. Prices are fair!!
Believe the hype, the chicken is that good! We were seated fairly quickly (5-10 minuted tops). We both enjoyed a white meat only chicken plate (one breast and two wings). The fry on this chicken is outstanding. Crispy, salty, some underlying spice and tender meat. While I don't typically seek out friend chicken spots, this is by far the best... More
This place is fabulous! And worth the wait. It's a small place so be prepared to wait, possibly outside. You'll be glad you did. This is real New Orleans. Take a cab or drive, but don't walk (safety). This place should be on your must do list.
As soon as you try the friend chicken at Willie Mae's you realize why they have been open for decades. It is one of a kind! The butter beans are really really good, too! Take a trip off the beaten path and check out Willie Mae's. We loved it! They are only opened until 5pm, so put it on your... More
I visited earlier this year and did not care for the fried chicken, a little spicy for me. This trip I ordered the catfish/fried shrimp plate and was very impressed. Everything was perfect, hot, fresh, well seasoned, etc. The service was very good, friendly and my tea glass stayed full. Visit for lunch and be safe.
