The location of Willie Mae’s on St. Charles Avenue is now closed. January, 2018
Yesterday Willie Mae’s restaurant opened. Today starting at 11am when they opened they were packed. lines to order. This is a second restaurant for a landmark restaurant in New Orleans. The original Willie Mae’s has a long history and is located at 2401 St. Ann Street in Treme and now they are located at 7457 St. Charles Avenue as well.
They officially opened yesterday. They are doing a really good job with all of the employees working efficiently. They were trained because there is no faltering trying to figure out what to do or to find things. The young ladies at the registers (no I guess we say iPad’s) had answers to questions about the menu. It was a pleasure..the food is wonderful and the fried chicken is not at all greasy but crispy.
The menu is simple with fried chicken as their specialty, but they also have fried or breaded pork chops, salads, sides, including a side of vegetables.
This was definitely worth the trip. Open 11am-5pm
