Linda’s Chicken & Fish, Denham Springs, LA

Awesome food at Linda’s Chicken & Fish in Denham Springs, but it’s worth the wait if you get there when they’re busy. Just wait until you taste the best fried catfish and chicken livers in the area. Maybe even the state. But don’t tell anyone. We want this place to ourselves.

It’s all good at Jeanie’s in Hammond, Louisiana. And you haven’t had good food until you eat here, especially if you’re craving a Southern style meal.

Louisiana Fried Chicken, Minden, LA

Louisiana Fried Chicken is one of the unusual fast food places that doesn’t have the feel of a chain restaurant. The secret is in the special zesty Cajun batter used to deep fry the chicken in. It may not be the fanciest place in town, but looks aren’t everything. If you like chicken livers, give the ones here a try, too. 

Crawdaddy’s Kitchen, Shreveport, LA

You might be surprised to know that one of the best crawfish places around also makes great fried chicken. That’s so at Crawdaddy’s Kitchen in Shreveport. Apparently, there’s something going on in the kitchen because this little diner puts out tasty food without apology. They also have frog legs, alligator, and crab. Better leave room for the peach cobbler, though.

Mama’s Fried Chicken, Opelousas, LA

If your mama made chicken like this, why did you ever leave home? And if your mama never made chicken like this, you owe it to yourself to stop and sample the tasty treat. There’s nothing better to fill an empty stomach. Look for the big yellow and red chicken.

Jacques-Imo’s, New Orleans, LA

When you enter this quirky and colorful diner, you’ll be greeted with southern hospitality and treated to one of the best dining experiences in New Orleans. Want fried chicken and roasted rabbit? No problem. Got a taste for spicy boudin balls? They got them, too. How about shrimp and alligator sausage cheesecake? Believe it or not, that’s there, too. Better come early because a two-hour line can form quickly. Yep, it’s that good.
