Since its inception, Willie’s Chicken Shack has become an integral part of New Orleans culture. Willie’s is a New Orleans staple much like the Fleur-de-lis. Eating at Willie’s is as much ingrained in the New Orleans experience as strolling down Bourbon Street.

With 8 locations throughout the French Quarter and Downtown New Orleans, Willie’s Chicken Shack is nearby when you’ve got a hankering for the best fried chicken in the city. Trust us, it’s slap yo’ mamma good – made from our secret recipe and fried to perfection when you order. Grab a frozen daiquiri or an ice cold draft with your meal; or take it to-go if the fun is just getting started. After all, it’s New Orleans y’all!

Willie’s is open late, even after the clubs close. Stop by on your way home for some of the tastiest late night eats in the Quarter. We’ve always got the party going on, so bring your friends and get your groove on.

Each Willie’s Chicken Shack location features vibrant and funky pieces from local folk artist, Simon. His colorful painted artwork can be seen throughout the city in many homes and businesses. Simon’s art showcases popular quotes, clever colloquialisms and lots of local attitude.
