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!! :-)

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!

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.

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!

Leah Chase, known as the "Queen of Creole Cuisine," has been operating Dooky Chase since the 1960s and has established it as a staple of New Orleans’ restaurant scene. Make sure to order the “Holy Thursday gumbo z’herbes!
