Our group of 6 got in after just a 10 minute wait on a Saturday evening, except we had to be separated into 2 separate tables. Not a problem, as the food was delicious. Everyone goes for the chicken, which is amazing. It's crispy, juicy,...More

Went to Willie Mae's with a group of friends. Turned into a culinary event. The chicken could not have been more perfect. The greens and corn bread were also excellent. This small restaurant typically has people waiting in line to get in so go early.

Yes, you will wait, yes you will wait in the sun or rain. You will wonder, what is the fuss, is it worth it. For the price, the history ( think of how many people lined up for this chicken) the chicken was crispy, moist,...More

Went to have lunch, and as soon as we sat down and ordered our food the power went out! No problem. The staff handled everything with calm and class. They kicked on the propane burners and keep frying chicken -I kid you not- by light...More

It took awhile to get in, but the chicken was great. A few bites were a little salty, but overall I would highly recommend this place. Service was really friendly once we were seated.

That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi
that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere
else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the
streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered
to be the very best of New Orleans culture and
tradition is, put simply, just how people go about
their daily lives in this historic part of town. As
one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods

I am not sure. I would think that you could but the issue never came up. But now that I think about it there were people picking up orders that they brought out in to go bags. So yes!
