We’re always digging for sandwiches to add to our 500 Po Boys research/eating project.
It’s been a solid coon’s age since we ventured into Willie Mae’s Scotch House up in Treme, and we could not recollect whether they had po boys on their menu or not.
They do not.
What they do offer is fried chicken and plenty of it. It may or may not be the best in New Orleans, and there are plenty warring factions who will sit around arguing about it til the resurrection of D.H Holmes.
In a switch on the hoary meat and three concept Willie Mae’s offers three pieces of fried chicken with one side for $15.
If you go please report back.
