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.

Trip Advisor

Jacques Imo’s was amazing for our wedding! Monique was incredibly helpful with selecting the menu and was super responsive. The tasting was amazing and they were willing to make changes to items on the menu based on our taste. It was really affordable and there was lots of food, which our guests absolutely loved!
