Best fried chicken ever!

This is worth a visit if you have a car or are willing to do the 20 minute walk from Rampart. Food is true Louisiana cooking! Delicious fried chicken! It is buffet style....not cheap at 20 a person. Also they try to add on a few extras but best peach cobbler I've ever had!

Leah Chase is the Queen of Creole cooking and she proves it every day! The restaurant is not open as it once was on a daily basis, so you have to telephone to see what hours and what days they are open, but if you can go by when they are, you will enjoy it and have some stories to... More

The staff were good but the food and the service were not. It seemed as if the restaurant traded on it's history and relied on a reputation from an earlier time. The service was slow and haphazard and the presentation of the food spoke more of a canteen than a restaurant. Having said all that, the flavours of the food... More

Went here with a friend of the owner. From the outside the place is very deceptive. The decor reminds me of old fashioned elegance. The food was very tasty. After lunch we went in the back and met the owner, and chatted a bit. The service was impeccable.

I was excited to eat here. Made a special trip out, and was disappointed. Went for the buffet on a Friday afternoon, the place was 2/3 empty but still had to wait 15 min for a table. The food was underwhelming, and the service while very friendly was also very slow. Unimpressed.

The food is very good with New Orleans flavors. They are famous for their fried chicken but other dishes are also very good. Restaurant has been around for decades although it was closed after Katrina for renovations. The service is very good, the décor is very nice, displayed with original art work by local artists.

We arrived at Dooky Chase about 12:30 on a Wednesday. We expected a line and there was one. We waited about 20 minutes before we got seated. Then we found out why it took so long. There were only 2 servers for all the tables and the hostess was clearing tables and trying to get them ready for customers. Our... More

I had to grab a dinner at the New Orleans Airport and decided to give this place a try. I was quite impressed. I had a Caesar Salad with Fried Oysters, expecting some limp greens and a handful of oysters. What I got was a large, fresh salad with more than a dozen well fried oysters. Nice wines by the...

We love this place and the queen owner/chef, Leah Chase. Her food is truly New Orleans Creole and Soul. Best fried chicken in town and ever better gumbo. We will be here on Holy Thursday for the annual tradition of Gumbo d'Herbes. This is special green gumbo with an odd number of greens along with every kind of meat in... More
