The food at Dookey Chase is NOT to be missed. The fried chicken is world famous for a very good reason, it is sublime. Besides really delicious food, you dine in the midst of some really great art. Mrs. Chase has been collecting beautiful works of art for decades. Most of it is on the walls of the restaurant. There... More

Dooky Chase is known for their fried chicken for very good reason: some of the best I have ever had. The sides are good, too. I was not impressed by the other entree options on the food bar (catfish and sausage) and would skip those next time and likely order my chicken made-to-order and have some to take home with...

A big fan of Mrs. Chase and her fabulous buffet! The art work alone should bring you in the door, and Mrs. Chase's incredible generosity to the neighbourhood after the storm would win a loyal following. Happily, the food deserves the loyal fan base on its own. Fried chicken is very good, and consistent. The buffet is a great way... More

After a marvelous meal at the original restaurant on Orleans Avenue (in the neighborhood of Treme) during the week, we were waiting in anticipation to cap our trip to the Crescent City with a final meal at the airport outpost of Dooku Chase (before security gates). However, we were pretty disappointed. The chicken was too fried and greasy and not... More

There were 27 in our extended family from MA, FL, CA, AZ, and NH. We have been to New Orleans numerous times, and were delighted to have found the Dooky Chase restaurant. Leah Chase is known as the "Queen of Creole" cooking, and we had a wonderful experience, not only meeting Ms. Leah Chase, but the food was outstanding, with... More

We had a wonderful experience at dooky chase! The smothered chicken was delicious. Gumbo was fantastic and praline bread pudding was out of this world! Highlight of the visit was meeting Leah Chase herself! She is so sweet and allowed us to come back into the kitchen to visit with her! Only con was the wait for a table. We... More

We ended our trip to New Orleans by eating lunch at Dooky Chase's Restaurant in Treme. We had tried for days to make a reservation, but had difficulty making a reservation by phone or on-line because of the busy time of year and the restaurant's limited hours. SO glad we were persistent and just showed up as a "walk-in" party... More

This was a gem of a find during our last trip to NOLA - Dooky Chase is at the airport (before the security lines). I was glad that I remembered this so we could arrange our airport shuttle to give us enough time to have lunch there. Who wants an airport sandwich when you can have real NOLA dining and... More
