Southern cooking and hospitality

Went on a Tuesday just before noon. Not open on Monday or open for dinner. We ordered off the menu rather than buffet. Service was warm and welcoming, from being seated, to our hostess, and those who bussed the table. The exterior is not impressive; in the interior the artwork is almost worth a... read more

My grandmother told me we must visit Dookys Chase's restaurant. I spoke with a shop owner in the quarter, as I bought a cook book written by Leah Chase, and she told me Leahy Chase was still cooking. Then, I spoke to an art gallery owner who said I HAD to go for lunch and get the gumbo. We went... More

A must for anyone visiting New Orleans, not just for the succulent chicken (oh how I loved it), but also for the history.

Dooky Chase is a must for any true foodie visiting New Orleans. I have been going there for over twenty years and never, never been disappointed. You won't find the elegant fine dinning of a Commanders Palace, but the food is fantastic and well worth what you pay.

I was glad to eat here not just for the food but the history too. Pictures with POTUS visit on the walls and come to find out there is a Disney film based on the owners. But the food is good too, better than a lot of what I had in vieux carre. Wish the menu had more options but... More

Because of all the positive reviews I couldn't wait to eat at Dooky's. My expectations were very high and I was left disappointed. The food was equivalent to what you'd receive at a Piccadilly or Golden Corral buffet. This didn't taste like authentic "creole/cajun" food. The red beans were very bland. The vegetables tasted like they came from a can,... More

Classic family restaurant and exactly what we were looking for. Had the lunch buffet and enjoyed everything. Everything was straight forward, well cooked, and southern. Everyone raves about the chicken and it was good. Mrs. Chase was there along with her daughter - very humble and gracious hosts. This is 10 minute cab ride from the quarter - don't stop... More
