So, we went to this place last year prior to catching a flight. I don't know what they changed since then, but it worked. Last year we waited 15 minutes to order drinks, 30 minutes for water and almost 1.5 hours for our food. We had to eat and run and it was overall not a pleasant experience. Since this... More

Wonderful soul food and Cajun specialties. Never fear the outside looks underwhelming at best. Inside it is light, bright and clean. Mrs. Chase is a local ikon of great cooking.

I went to Dooky Chases to try the fried chicken. The batter was good, flakey, and very juicy inside. The sides such as the baked Mac was bland and did not taste very good at all. The salad was a salad but their dressing is pretty good. It's a balsamic vinaigrette with some light spice to it. Over all would... More

The chicken from Mrs. Chase's recipe us indeed heavenly. You find yourself picking off every little crusty bit. All of the food is very good and the service is terrific with lots of suggestions, full water glasses and a great pecan pie for dessert. The restaurant is a piece of history but the food is the main focus. The chance... More

It was our favorite meal in New Orleans. Not only was the food fantastic, it was amazing to be in a place of such historic significance to the civil rights movement.

Ms. Chase's restaurant is known for her fried chicken...and yes, it's that good. We were here for the lunch buffet and it's a great find in New Orleans. Lots of local and lot of pictures of Presidents and celebrities. This is a restaurant for anyone and everyone.

Had lunch there and ate the buffet. It's the best deal for you get the opportunity to taste a wide range of the menu. The fried chicken is heaven, red beans and rice solid, gumbo very tasty, as well as the remainder of the menu. Beautiful setting with a wonderful caring staff. Got to hit this place when you are...

My fiancée and I wanted authentic creole cooking while visiting New Orleans and happened upon Dooky Chase. The building was unassuming and we had our doubts about their brunch. Beautiful decor and delicious food awaited us however. The service was ok but friendly. The fried chicken went super fast because it was fried and seasoned perfectly! I wanted to take... More

How often does it happen that when you're writing one of these little review-lets, you get so hungry thinking about the meal that you have to stop and have a snack to keep it in check? That's what writing about Dooky Chase is doing to me. We went for lunch - walked from Louis Armstrong Park to the restaurant (about... More
