This was an awful meal. We were in a hurry and grabbed some fried chicken. I have no idea how long ago it was fried, but it was terrible. Lesson here is go to a place that fires it when you place your order.

Best fried chicken ever. So fresh and crisp. Went there at 330am and it was packed. 8 piece was only $7.99

I saw a few reviews on Yelp and decided to check it out as it was only a few minutes from our hotel. The chicken was outstanding! You must get the special seasoning on the fries.

It's decent chicken but the location in Baton Rouge on Greenwell Springs is much much better. This location is even stingy with the napkins. I guess it's ok if you are coming from a club and you need help with your hangover.

We were told about this place by a barman in Bourbon St who told us about this local institution. He said the food at Brothers was way better than most of the expensive restaurants in the French Quarter. It's basically a corner store but it sells fried chicken and crawfish pies. The barman was right. The food was amazing good... More

My husband enjoyed this alot, wanted to bring some back home to MD! I thought it was good but the fries TERRIBLE. They are bland and have zero seasoning or even salt on them. It was suggested to us by our shuttle driver so it was the first meal we had in town.

We stopped in for a snack when a cold, rainy day caught us by surprise and we didn't want to venture far from our hotel. The drums and wings were juicy and tasty with a crispy skin. The red beans were surprisingly good, too.

Pretty darn good crispy chicken and service!! Was craving some good fried chicken and Brothers met the need. Don't let the look fool you by judging a book by its cover. ..LORL

Visited Brother’s Food Mart in July 2016. Stopped there on the way back to the Marriott Pere Marquette after obtaining a leg injury while boarding the St. Charles Trolley.

Located inside a liquor/convenience store, you can grab some fried chicken to-go. Cheap, hot, fresh, and delicious! Crispy skin, slightly spicy (they also give you some extra Louisiana hot sauce), and so juicy. Note, however, the staff was quite surly and seemed very disinterested in serving customers.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
