Reviews for Willie Mae’s

The 2 hour wait was all worth it. The food is homemade and just like your momma made it. There is nothing fancy about this place or the food and that’s the secret to it all. Take it as is!! You must visit this historic restaurant but make sure to have plenty of time to spare and patience. Eat a snack before getting to the place because the long line can get the best of you. The food is fantastic!!!!

Best soul food I've had in a LONG TIME. The corn bread, fried fish, sweet potatoes, and Mac n cheese were perfect! Red beans and rice could use a little more flavor but I love that they're vegan :) the market itself compliments Willie Mae's well, great location.

We descended upon this location with a group of 23 on a Saturday night an hour before closing and they were woefully under prepared. They had run out of many sides and even the house salad. They were slow in taking our orders and some people had to wait almost 40 minutes just to order. I ordered the fried chicken with fried okra. I personally wasn't a fan of the fried okra because there was very little okra and lots of batter. Would have preferred okra fries or something. ...read full review
