I've been to Lil Dizzy's a few times and the chicken is always delicious, the tea is always sweet, the waiters are always friendly, the french toast is always just right and my belly is always full.

The food here was good. The selection for the brunch was a bit limited considering the 17.99 price tag. The restaurant is also very cramped. Getting in and out with a full house is a bit tedious and maze like.

Lil Dizzy's was recommended by a local house renovation expert. He was right, the food is tasty, good value and served with lashings of humour. We left feeling well looked after and knowing we will,return before leaving New Orleans

Amazing place. Very unique with authentic southern cuisine. I highly recommend to visit. Don't leave without fried chicken, seafood omelette and bread pudding.

The food was amazing and the not tourist atmosphere of real New Orleans was great. Everyone was friendly and the service was great. Will try and go back before we leave for the buffet lunch!

Wow! So good. We came for breakfast. Our waitress, Dawn, was so funny and helpful. She first reminded us that we did not come to New Orleans for eggs and bacon. She strongly recommended the seafood po boy and jambalaya omelet and the French toast....More

We went down at 9 am and had a great breakfast. Eggs perfect and the grits were great. They toasted the buttered biscuit which was a plus. Cheap and very tasty!

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
