Dooky Chase Won Best Chicken in New Orleans for a Reason

Most folks who go to Dooky Chase do so for the fried chicken. We were no different. They are famous for it. The wait staff will tell you so. But first things first. Dooky Chase is in an area of town that may make you think twice. You don't need to. You can cab it or walk it depending on... read more

We decided to go here on a whim. After walking 30 minutes in the heat, wearing shorts & tshirts, we were a little worried when we arrived. White table cloths & an elegant setting awaited us. We were seated with no problems. We all opted for the lunch buffet. This wasn't like ant buffet I have experienced. The food is... More

I came here of its reputation as a restaurant to visit while in NOLA. We went for the lunch buffet and fried chicken was just okay in my opinion, nothing to make me say wow. Then all the other fixins were not that spectacular either. The sweet potatoes in particular seemed overcooked and syrupy giving it a soft, slimy texture.... More

We were very dissopointed as the food was not as good as we were told nor was the service. The shrimp in creole sauce was salty and the fried chicken we have eaten better. The service was very slow and was not very welcoming. The restaurant itself was very cold. Not worth a second visit.Personally going all that way for... More

This place is mostly for groups, and the food is served to you from a buffet line. The portions are small, but you can go back for more. If you want a place where all the VIPS go, this is it.

Outstanding. I was told it was the best fried chicken i would ever eat. I had the best fried chicken at Gus's in Memphis however Dooky Chase's fried chicken was a slight winner. I can't wait to go back. we go to NOLA regularly and this will always be a must stop

Dooky Chase's restaurant is located in a somewhat rundown area of town right around the corner from Willie Mae's. We went there in our quest to sample New Orleans best fried chicken. Don't let the name put you off. It is a family name or nickname, apparently. Atmosphere wise this restaurant definitely wins. It was very nice inside and had... More

Decided to try Dooky Chase's this time around in NOLA. I had the fried chicken and my wife had the roasted chicken in brown gravy. Both plates were amazing. The fried chicken was cooked to perfection. I had some fried chicken last year at Fiorellas a small little place that's been around a while also. I have to say I... More

I was unable to get to the original location, so was delighted to find them in the airpot. I had their fried chicken, and it was wonderful. Perfectly crispy skin (no batter), lots of flavor and spices----but not hot. It was also perfectly done and juicy. I would definitely recomend them.
