Got there at 10am opening, there was only 4 customers ahead and they where talking chicken too. The staff is quick and on the ball. I was alone, so I took a seat at the "bar area". (no alcohol). They had just opened and asked if I was in a hurry and replied the only thing I was in a... More

We arrived and there was a small line outside. We got in pretty quickly. I ordered I sweet tea. The girl brought out sweet tea. It took a while to get that corrected. I ordered the chicken meal with white meat. They ran out of the Mac and cheese it was only 2pm. That was disappointing. My boyfriend ordered the... More

Great food, with a great staff, However the food was slow to be served.... We had the famous fried chicken and as good as it was the baked chicken was just as good.... Wonderful sides and bread.... we did not try the desserts

I was excited to eat there. We lucked out because most parties were big and they had 2 seats open so we didn't have to wait in line. Of course everyone goes there for the fried chicken but they do have a healthier option ( baked chicken) for the ❤️conscience and cholesterol minded. I still think it is a must... More

We had a great experience at Willie Mae's Scotch House. The menu is small, but you cannot choose a bad item. Everything we ordered was amazing. The service was great. I highly recommend you take the time to check them out!

Found this restaurant from asking people and they were so right. This is in the 6 ward so take a taxi. Don't worry taxis are there when you finish dinning to take you back to town. You may have to wait in line but so worth the wait. The service is excellent and the chicken is mouth watering good. Can't... More

I was so excited to eat here as I had heard so much about it. When we pulled up I thought for sure the gps had taken us to the wrong area. It was a little run down and we were a little unsure - but there was small lineup so we figured we'd go for it. We got in... More

This is one of those places you NEED to visit. Now – to be fair – it is nothing to look at. It is a hole in the wall dive place – but the food is OUTSTANDING! The chicken was so crispy, juicy, and delicious. The mac and cheese was incredible as well. We got there just before they closed... More

Staying in Treme

Neighborhood Profile
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 and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
