There is nothing better in the world than WIllies chicken after a long night of partaking on Bourbon Street. Have had a lot chain chicken but no one's is better than Willies. Coating is light and chicken juicy and tender. Love WIllies.

It was a stop on the street car line, the food was good priced and was good. Also, doubles as a bar with those alcoholic slurpy like machines.

Had the shrimp basket and chicken basket, both were very good! THEM BISCUITS made everything even more amazing. Love their array of sauces and wet willies style drinks.

My wife and I went late at night. I recommend tipping the cashier, they are incredibly courteous. The chicken is some of the best I have had before. The daiquiris aren't too shabby either!

Great atmosphere. Food was really good and always fresh. We went pretty late at night both times we visited. Perfect meal after Bourbon St. Bottom line is they have really good food, try it and a Grenade while your visiting.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
