Willie Mae's: original vs Grocery and Deli?

TimTamGirl | Jan 6, 201509:55 AM

I'll be visiting your lovely city for a few days next week, and am desperate to try the legendary fried chicken at Willie Mae's. Unfortunately, I'll be in town for work and won't have much free time during the day.

I see that the original Willie Mae's closes at 5:00, which would be hard for me to get to, especially given the distance; however, the new Willie Mae's Grocery and Deli is closer to where I'll be and is open until 9:00, which I could do easily. But I'm concerned there'll be a difference in quality.

Has anyone tried the Grocery and Deli, and if so, how does it compare to the original? If the original is markedly better, I want to know that. I did search the board but couldn't find any reviews; apologies if I missed anything useful, and please feel free to link. Also, if I've just been fed a lot of good PR and Willie Mae's isn't the right place to be looking at all, please feel free to direct me otherwise.
