We had high expectations for Willy Mae's and the fried chicken lived up to them, but the rest was disappointing. The peas that came with the mashed potatoes must have come from a can -- pale green and mushy. The fired okra was better but a little too heavily breaded. Service was attentive. Maybe we should have tried some of... More

Oh, wow! Best fried chicken and fried catfish I've ever had! The red beans and butter beans are out of this world! You must, must get the bread pudding for dessert! Best I've ever had!

Located on a quiet street in Treme, this casual home cooking restaurant has the best fried chicken and side dishes one can imagine. The servers are friendly, and so are the other guests. Many told us that they have been coming here for years, or if they were not New Orleans residents, that they come here every time they are... More

Not to confuse this location (on St. Charles at Cherokee) with the location in the French Quarter... My family tried the St. Charles location this past weekend and the chicken and everything that went with it, except to fries were so hot we could not eat it. We are locals and are used to hot/spicy food but this food was... More

2nd best fried chicken I've ever had. Quite a strange experience of waiting outside in the sun for a table, but once we got in it was well worth the wait. No frills but great taste,

I'm a southern girl who knows her chicken. This is honestly the best fried chicken I've ever had. They give you so much food for the price. The cornbread and red beans were delicious as well. Our server was on point. I just love this place. Don't miss it! Oh and we went at 10:30 on a Tuesday to miss... More

My wife and I went here for lunch. Arrived at 10:45 and were seated immediately. Service was good and we were served in 30 minutes. Fried chicken was very good! We left around 12:00 and there was a pretty good line outside so come early.

We went to the newer, uptown location because it's open for dinner. We took the streetcar from the FQ, which took about 45 min at rush hour but we enjoyed the ride and sightseeing. Willie Maes was at the top of my husband's NOLA "to eat" list after reading reviews prior to our trip. The uptown location opened last fall... More

Tip first: They open at 10 AM, be there by 11AM or you'll likely be waiting in line... Well worth a wait but why wait.. Consider it a crispy affordable Brunch... So the cab driver dropped us off at 9:50 AM ($8 from the Grenoble house in FQ) and we thought what are we doing and this is a unique... More
