I not only had lip smacking chicken, I also got great service and information on directions to a great walking trail to use on my way back to hotel.

Up here in Seattle, we can't get chicken as good as this. My son and I happened in on a Tuesday night, shortly after they started serving in the evenings. We were able to walk directly in. It was a religious experience, not much else...More

Ordered the dark meat chicken plate with sweet potato fries and was in complete heaven! The batter is the perfect thickness and is crunchy with a bit of spice. The meat falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. Get there early because a...More

Go early for dinner, 4:30- 5 PM. Old time Fried chicken with a little New Orleans attitude. The Chicken is great, but the sides make the meal, Fried Okra, Sweet Peas, Mac N Cheese is baked style, not from a box. Peach Tea is not...More

Fried chicken is hands down the best in Nola. All the sides are amazing ...service is fast and friendly...there's always a line but it moves quickly. Its a hike from the quarter so uber or lyft is your best option.

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
