I tried out DeBreaux's in Overbrook over the weekend. Went in on Saturday around 12:30... it was 1:40 when I got my food (and the place didn't even seem that busy!). I ordered the same thing as Bob L in the thread below -- chicken leg, collards, potato salad. It also came with a piece of possibly the best cornbread ever. I think it had just come out of the oven. The collards were fantastic, but the potato salad was a bit too mayonnaisey for my taste (my nod for best potato salad goes to Ludwig's Garten). The chicken was delicious. Not too much breading but a nice seasoning. A little greasy -- the right amount if you ask me -- and hey, it's fried in olive oil so that means it's good for you, right? The meat was deliciously tender, juicy, cooked to perfection. Found myself nibbling at the marrow, wishing I had ordered more chicken. Which would have been pricey -- this is high-class chicken, not KFC -- but worth it. My dinner platter was around $10. Piecewise legs and breasts are in the $6-apiece range. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will call ahead and give them an extra 20-30 minutes past what they estimate to minimize the wait.
