Success! Thanks for posting your review of Willie Mae's Scotch House. You’ve done the world some good today.


My husband and I stopped by every spot we could while on our honeymoon in 2010. When we got to Willie Mae's we could not believe the line, a sign of good food. Our wait was worth every bite.. This chicken is the stuff that my dreams are made of. Everytime someone tells me they are going to or thru New Orleans I ask for them to bring me back some chicken. It has been 3 years and I still crave the taste. will be back s... view more

Didn't go in

New to New Orleans, saw Willie Mae's on Food Network as I assume did every other tourist. Had to use GPS to find it, drove up to it, saw the line of tourists around the teeny tiny building, rolled up our windows, locked our doors and drove away. Since discussing this with locals, our understanding is that the chicken is in fact good but there is good fried chicken all over town and the neighborhood is so seedy that... view more

Big Disappointment

My wife and I have been trying to get there since Katrina and finally made it Saturday. Big Disappointment I am afraid. Although the chicken was cooked to the proper doneness, it was a bit greasy and overdone on the outside (i.e. too dark and over crispy). My grandmother makes a much better fried chicken to be honest.\r The red beans were mediocre. Service was slow, but cordial. Won;'t go back and won't recommend it... view more

Fried Chicken at its best

The chicken is rolling. It melts in ur mouth. The skin is seasoned to perfection and crispy.\r \r

I was visiting N. O. and remembered the place from the food network. ""The best fried chicken in N. O."" is what they said. If this is great chicken, then you have not been around much. I am from the deep south, and this chicken is NOT it . The chicken is very ordinary and not even typical of ""southern fried chicken"". The chicken was not flavorful and not a good representation of what we southerners can whip up ... view more

Everything you could want and more

Living in N.O. for 3 years now I am so mad at myself that I did not go here sooner. I've heard so much about this place and wanted to visit for so long so trust me expectations were high. Well let's say, Willie Mae's delivered and then some. The fried chicken was every bit as good as billed. I have lived in the South for 23 years now and I can honestly say this is the best I've had. An unexpected surprise was ... view more

3 pieces (wing,leg and thigh)and fries was $11.00. No choice on pieces you want. Desserts cost $5.00 for cheesecake and $4.50 for bread pudding. \r It was clean.

Poor service, good food

Although the chicken was wonderful, our experience was tainted by the HORRIBLE service. We arrived and received a table immediately. However, our server didn't even give us menus for an HOUR!! He continued to walk by our table multiple times during the hour, not even making eye contact with us. When we were finally able to order, the food came out quite quickly. Due to the poor service, we missed a tour we could... view more

Worlds Best Fried Chicken!

Located on a street corner, next to a still inactive grade school, grab a cab and go. If the driver gets a little lost, as ours did, just ask anybody in the neighborhood and they know Willie Mae's. As you walk by the open kitchen to the second dining room you will see Willie Mae's Granddaughter, the keeper of the family recipe for chicken, on duty in the kitchen. Prices are reasonable, service is good and th... view more

Stay up north

You know the stupied people who wrote a bad review of this resturant ought to stick to popeyes. You really do not know what good food is. Your so use to the tasteless food you cook up north your taste buds are shot. If you can not appreciate what this family has been through and what they are trying to do; I would suggest you do not come back to New Orleans because we are all family here and we know what good food... view more
