Fried Chicken - Fiorella's or Coop's or ?

I will be in NOLA March 7th-9th. My last visit I had the fried chicken at Fiorella's. It was delicious, but a little bland. Does the fried chicken at Coop's have more seasoning? How do they compare? Any other fried chicken suggestions?

  1. jacques imo's. dunbar's.

    1. coops uses a different type of batter. it does have more seasoning. i rec that you try it. and if you can stand the wait i like willie mae's scotch house. can't remember if i've eaten jacques imo's chicken. but i'd say try it too. love fried chicken:)

      1. Had both Coops and Fiorellas recently. Fiorellas had more coating and seasoning. Both cooked to order and neither greasy. Best thing IMO at Jacques-Imos is the chicken. A better deal than either of the others. For around $16 you get an entire meal...salad, cornbread muffins, chicken with 2 sides. A ton of food. Haven't had Pampy's post- K but it used to be very good.

          1. Willie Mae's has the best fried chicken I've ever tasted. I've been a vegetarian for 16 years and it made me start eating chicken again. Just get there when they open.

              Willi Mae's has had an advertisement in The Gambit indicating that they are open.

                I must disagree with Willie Mae's. I went there a year or so before the storm with a friend and it was the worst fried chicken I have ever had...well at least until i moved to Jersey. I am hoping that it was just a bad day, but my buddy won't go back to find out, that's how bad it was.
