Some of the best fried chicken I've ever had! Not only is the chicken good, but the sides are incredible too. The red beans &, rice, corn bread, and fried okra are a must! I highly recommend taking a moment to appreciate the history of...More

I heard about this restaurant from my Uber driver - she said it was her favorite restaurant in New Orleans. So I decided to give it a try and boy am I glad I did. Saying it's not fancy is an understatement - very basic...More

This is a great place to eat southern style food. I love their fried chicken because the flavors and spices explode in your mouth. Talk about excellent mash potatoes with an extra kick of spice. Excellent customer service as well as the great food ....More

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

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!
