Willie Mae's Dooky Chase fried chicken smack down

chinnyttown | Dec 6, 201403:53 PM     9

Started coming last year; love fried chicken. From everything I had read there were two choices for lunch: Willie Mae's and Dooky Chase. Went to Willie Mae's last year; Dooky yesterday. Both my friend and I (he lived here for many years) agree Willie Mae's was the clear winner. Skin was crisp and not at all greasy and the flavor and spice were deep and complex. Also thought their butter beans were superior. Now don't get me wrong - I would kill to have a Dooky Chase in Baltimore! And they had some great sides as part of the buffet (Creole mustard potato salad and shrimp and squash casserole in particular). Interestingly, our cabbie (who was clearly a local) scoffed at our opinion and said we didn't know what we were talking about.
Just thought it would be fun to get a conversation going.
