Turn an opportunity into a legacy.

In 2012, right before Mardi Gras, the first Willie’s Chicken Shack was conceived.

We believe Willie’s is our vehicle to impact people and communities around the world. From our secret fried chicken recipe to our mouth-watering honey butter biscuits, our food is slap yo’ mama good!

We strive to create a memorable experience for every patron that enters our restaurant doors. We want to instill how delicious our food is, while ensuring they understand and believe the lasting impact we have in their community.
