Been stopping by for years and the food is still good. I had seafood platter and the oysters were over cooked. Stewed okra was disappointing. Tasted colleagues fried chicken and it was very good. Peach cobbler had lots of juice and a very small portion....More

If you want to eat some great food then I suggest you make a stop here! We went at lunchtime and arrived just as they opened and were seated immediately. We ordered the lunch buffet and it was tremendous. The service was excellent.

What a great introduction to our start in New Orleans! I would suggest the lunch buffet because you get a taste of many Cajun dishes.

You should get reservations to eat at Dooky Chase. We didn't but were still treated really well. This is an old time, traditional southern meets New Orleans cooking. Some of the best fried chicken ever. Skip the mac and cheese. It was elegant and casual...More

Well, the rumours are true. Dooky Chase is wonderful. My wife and I are down in New Orleans for a weekend getaway and we had to try eating at this landmark. We started off with a cup of gumbo each and it was delicious. For...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

There is a lot of parking in the area. Walking while it's light is fine that said, I would think twice about walking at night.

We will be in New Orleans in a couple of weeks. How early do we need to call and make reservations? Or when do you accept reservations?

We went at around 1:30-2 for a late lunch without reservation and had no line. The buffet was still up and humming. Delicious food!
Do you have gluten free food on the menu?

I don't believe they have any gluten free items. That have a limited menu that is absolutely amazing. But I would call to be sure. They will most likely not reply back on here.
