The wait in the heat was well worth it! We went for an early dinner and had to wait about 30-35 minutes. Once inside, the service was great and the food was AMAZING! We had white and dark meat chicken, fried okra, green beans, red...More

No line-ups when we went at 5pm. We were seated right away. The fried chicken was pretty good - crispy skin, juicy meat and loads of flavour. The roast chicken was good - but I found it a bit oily. The fried okra was excellent....More

They keep things moving but on a busy day, the lines to Willie Mae's Scotch House are rough. We had a line four rows deep and it took over an hour to get inside. What I will say is that I don't know that I'd...More

Made a special trip here for dinner because it came highly recommended by friends. We had a large group. They were out of a number of the menu items so we all ordered chicken. The chicken was very spicy, but was more tolerable when the...More

Recommended by an Uber Driver, we thought we would give it a try while in NOLA. We heard stories about the wait times but must have arrived at a good time since the line was very short and we only waited about five or ten...More

We really wanted to like this place, given all the glowing reviews and visits by likes of Phil Ronenthal from "Somebody feed Phil". Excited and ready to wait, we were seated after about 40 minutes. We ordered 3 fried chicken dishes, red beans and rice,...More

We waited in line for 45 minutes to get in. The food was definitely worth it! They have the juiciest most flavorful fried chicken that I've eaten in a very long time. It was worth the wait.

The food is delicious. Willie Mae knows how to cook chicken. They did give us someone else's food and then brought the wrong food for us. They quickly corrected those issues. They also squeezed us into a small dining space, which I hate. But we...More

I actually did not eat here. I’m rating a 4 so as to be consistent with what others say. However, I think my feedback is worthwhile. My friend and I came in a car and found parking. Turns out there was a line where we...More

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!
