Some reviews

It’s not just the amazing fried chicken that draws in the crowds here — many come to enjoy the raucous atmosphere and the company of the quirky chef and owner Jacques Leonardi, who’s a party all by himself!

We have been coming to New Orleans for quite a few years and this time we finally made it here!! And it was worth the wait. The corn muffins they start you with were delicious. My husband and I had the fried chicken and it was sooo good!! One of the best I’ve had in a long time. Hail3
