Sandwiches are very good - shrimp and catfish poboys especially. Bisque and gumbo are always exceptional. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Prices are great

Tried the oysters Josephine. So awesome. And of course the raw oysters were perfect, as usual. You must get the gumbo.

Funny name but fantastic food. If you haven't tried this restaurant WELL LET ME TELL YOU, YOU are missing some of the best fried, broiled, boiled seafood and New Orleans style Po Boys you will find anywhere. I make sure I have lunch here at least twice a month. The RAW oysters are as good as you will find ANYWHERE... More

Chookies is a local restaurant specializing in seafood. For several years they were located in the strip mall on north Morrison, beside Papa John's pizza but recently moved to 45654 West University. Their range of seafood is extensive but they have managed to bump their prices up from their previous location. Food is quite good, especially the seafood potato.

We ate there last night and had a wonderful time. I had the Shrimp Lala and my husband had a shrimp poboy. Both of these were great. Constance our waitress was friendly and helpful. Eric,the owner sent us complementary gumbo and a jumbo boiled shrimp. I have never had better. This place is friendly and Eric is an amazing cook.... More
