And what’s so great about THIS fried chicken? Subtly spicy, juicy interior, a faint hint of the fresh grease, and dark golden, crackling, crisp skin. Oh, and it’s cheap! Four pieces with sides (love the red beans!) totals less than $10.00! I admit it: I had lunch and dinner again there in one day! The chicken is cooked to order, so it’s definitely NOT fast food (takes about 20 minutes).
If the poultry is not your thing, there are many other Creole specialties that will excite your palate and pocketbook. The po’boys are enormous and duplicate the fried chicken experience when you order the shrimp or oyster.
So maybe you’re exhausted from all the walking you’ve done in the French Quarter. Well, hold onto your buckets, because Fiorella’s delivers anywhere in the Quarter, even during a raging thunderstorm! How do I know? I saw the intrepid delivery boy hop on his bike in the pouring rain and actually envied the patron who placed that order--oh, to enjoy a heap of fried chicken in the privacy of your hotel room! Talk about your comfort(-able) food! Fried chicken hotline is 504/528-9566. Delivery hours are 11am-2am.
Hours are Monday-Friday 10:30am-2am (no fried chicken unil 11:30am); Saturday and Sunday 7am-2am.
