New Orleans classics

Shrimp po' boy, redfish on jeweled rice, & gumbo. Those were the flavors that I chose as "first tastes" for my most recent visit to the Big Easy. I was not disappointed.

Great value, great food, great atmosphere. The smell of fried chicken wafts out from the building. This one is worth going out of your way for. Friendly service too. Just one thing - not the place to go if you're in a hurry. But if you want a delicious leisurely lunch in a very pleasant atmosphere, this is the place... More

While staying at the Crowne Point, one of the valet workers told us to go here instead of Mothers. It was the best decision that we made. The food was amazing. We even got to meet Ms. Chase herself. Great experience!!!

Dooky Chase is the premier creole restaurant in the city and more. It is renowned for more than the famous fried chicken and chicken clemenceau. It is has a world-class collection of original art. Open weekdays for lunch, and Friday nights.

For years I have always wanted to eat at Dooky Chase and this trip to New Orleans I made it a priority to do so. It seems like a simple brick building from the outside but on the inside one can see its historical elegance. The decor inside includes several painting from local artist that reflect the culture of New... More

We were told by many of the locals, for the best fried chicken, look no further than Dooky Chase's restaurant. The chicken is crispy, well seasoned and mouth watering moist! You can order the buffet meal which offers salad, rice/beans, a mixture of cooked vegetables (cabbage, carrots, potatoes) sausage and of course, THE fried chicken. The buffet also includes soup,...

We came for a late lunch. Luckily, they were still serving their lunch buffet. Everything was tasty. My husband especially liked the sausages and the gumbo. I was a big fan of the Mac and Cheese and fried chicken. Staff was courteous, if a little less attentive than we would have liked. We enjoyed the artwork and history of the... More
