Simply outstanding lunch. We had the buffet, met the owners, and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The fried chicken is wonderful. Although the building is not much from the outside, it is very, very nice inside, and the food is great. Stella was so helpful and nice, and Omar, our server, was entertaining, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Don't miss it if... More

Took a cab for an 11:00 lunch and recommend as its a bit away from town. Dookys was full on a Tuesday lunch before 11:30 so you should call for reservations. We had heard of the fame of Dookys and Leah Chase, (and her friendship with Scott Peacock, a highly thought-of chef in Atlanta)so it was a priority for us... More

Ms. Leah Chase is a national treasure and her court is a one time tavern that suffered through Katrina to become a destination. Check the hours, it's still not open some nights but when you go, enjoy the fried chicken, the stuffed pappers and whatever fish she's made.

This place has been on my list because of the history as well as the fried chicken. Glad I went but would not return. Lunch offers a limited buffet or a menue selection of only about 5 diff daily specials. The waitress described the buffet offered a salad bar, all the items as well as peach cobbler. I opted for...

We had the a la carte option for lunch at Dooky Chase. The fried chicken hit the spot. The sides we had were the mac and cheese which were good and the home cut fries, which were not as good (a bit too soggy with oil). We shared the peach cobbler pie for desert which was also fantastic (and mind... More

Went here after a tour of the Treme' district wanting to try some authentic sould food. The buffet (problem #1) was empty often, dried out food and greasy. The wait staff was kind, but not attentive. Water remained unfilled unless you asked for some. My father in law ordered off the menu took a VERY long time for his food... More

The service here is top notch! All the staff will make you feel like old friends and not just a customer and meeting Ms. Leah Chase in her kitchen was an absolute honor. The fried catfish was good & very fresh! I loved the okra too.

Every time I visit NOLA I must go to The Praline Connection for soul food. We decided to try something new and dined here after reading all the comments. First, we had no reservations but they seated us anyway. Service was slow, but I guess being in "The Big Easy" I won't complain! The fried chicken was wonderful! I have... More

Such an odd location--the interior is much nicer than the exterior. It is real old southern charm--the servers are nice, humorous, approachable. The food was INCREDIBLE. I wish we could get fried chicken like that in the Seattle area. Nothing comes even close over here. The collard greens and smoked ham hock bits were my fave--difficult to find good collard... More
