I was going to give 3 stars, but the servers were very friendly so I went up a star. A little slow filling drinks and it wasn't even that crowded but nice all the same. We all had the buffet. The food was good, but not the best fried chicken or pork chops I've had. The crawfish pie was good, the geens were very good, but the red beans and rice were a little bland. The bread pudding was very good. We had a group of 5 and spent over $100 and there was no alcohol so expect to spend a little. I'd probably choose Popeye's chicken over this style. This recipe is more of the buttery southern style, not spicy but still very good and cooked perfectly.

First, the fried chicken is truly incredible. I have never tasted better. Second, the decor is outstanding. I thought I had walked into the wrong entrance. Very nice. White tablecloths, plus more. On the negative side: all the other buffet items were either too salty or too spicy. I mean, really spicy. Also, our young waitress was extremely inattentive. She disappeared for very long stretches of time. But, I would go back for the chicken. Damn you Leah!! :-)

Just returned from New Orleans for a P.A.W. convention, Someone suggested we go to Dooky Chase for lunch, service was terrible, they were out of stuffed shrimp, it took 35minutes to get chicken on the buffett line, they don't make cornbread, they ran out of peach cobbler. Chicken was good but not worth the wait,gumbo was mostly juice, was not impressed. I offered to go in the kitchen and help since I own my own catering business and can cook very well. Will not be returning to this place again.

Just the experience of eating here is worth every cent. In the heart and soul of NOLA, it needs to be visited although their hours is not optimal. Not only is the food the epitome of southern home cooking, but the restaurant is an art museum in itself. Definitely hope to visit again.

All you can say is "Wow". Dooky Chase takes home-cooking to another level. The Fried Chicken is some of the best chicken you can ever eat. It is slightly spicy, which just adds to its deliciousness. All you can do is try to slow down and not burn your tongue as you try to stuff your face while it is still piping hot! Yes, its that good. Not too mention the side dishes (greens, stuffed potatoes, etc) Even the house salad dressing is great!

MUST. HAVE. FRIED. CHICKEN. That's all there is to say. If you love fried chicken, or if you've never had it - this is the place to have it! It was like my mom was in the kitchen - yes, it was that good! SO glad I didn't miss this this time - absolutely worth the short drive or cab ride. Just be sure to plan ahead, as they're only open for dinner on Fridays. Thanks, Ms. Leah!

The food was okay but the service was horrible. My aunt's cooking and food is so much better. I am not sure what the big deal is? It took over 1 hours for us to be seated and when we did receive our seats, the place was half full. So I am not sure what the wait was about. I will probably never go back again. This is place is definitely over rated.
