Chef Randy Evans reviews Fried chicken at
"This is great chicken in a wet batter. It's spicy and salty, just how fried chicken should be. The mac 'n' cheese, butter beans and rice, and fried okra with cornbread are perfect, too."
Chef Emeril Lagasse reviews Fried chicken at
"It’s light, crispy, juicy, and just plain good. The skin is fried for just the right amount of time so that the chicken doesn’t get soggy. There’s some great fried chicken out there, but here has some of the best."
Chef John Besh reviews Fried chicken at
"I love Willie Mae's thin and crispy battered fried chicken. Chicken or not, it's worth it just to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Carrie who runs the place just as her grandmother once did."
Chef Aaron Burgau reviews Fried chicken at
"I love the hot and crispy fried chicken with butterbeans, rice, and cornbread. She uses a wet batter that produces fried chicken with a spicy, crispy crust unlike any other."
Chef Kelly Fields reviews Fried chicken at
"This is the best fried chicken ever, and it's served with two sides of your choice. I generally go for collards and cornbread stuffing."
Chef Nick Martin reviews Fried chicken at
"Their chicken is different in regards to other fried chicken because they don’t do the standard buttermilk fry. Instead, they do a wet batter and fry everyone’s chicken in a separate basket so it all cooks evenly. You get a crispy, more evenly cooked, juicy end result because they take the time to do it right. Every piece is just juicy and wonderful."
Chef Alon Shaya reviews Fried chicken at
"This fried chicken, made with a wet batter of spices and flour, has a light and crackly texture on the outside. Always juicy and perfectly spicy, it is, hands down, my favorite fried chicken."
