Going downhill fast

Years ago this was an excellent restaurant. To night I went in and had meatloaf, macaroni and cheese and turnip greens plus cornbread. I'm glad Chef Gordon Ramsay was not there! He would have sent it back after the first taste. The meat loaf was terrible and the macaroni and cheese was dried out as if it had been sitting out all day. The turnip greens were typical out of the can greens. A big disappointment. Don't bother going there until there is a vast improvement. I am a local and I won't be back.

Little Place, Big Flavor

The food there is so great! Order anything on the menu and leave pleased. I witnessed a couple who attempted to dine WELL after the restaurant closed its doors. The chefs had already closed the kitchen. The lady (from the couple) begged on her knees for five minutes and asked the manager to reopen the store. I understood how she felt. It is definitely a go-to spot while in New Orleans.

DONT MISS IT

This is one of the best ever restaurants my wife and I have ever eaten. Although we are basically vegetarians this place is the one place we drop all our dietary guidelines and feast on their chicken livers. The vegetarian dishes are exceptional. Collards and fried okra are unreal. We plan to eat Thanksgiving Dinner there this year. Glad this one survived Katrina. I am almost reluctant to tell people about it, selfish I know but don't want it to get too famous and change. The servings are really huge too, always enough left over to bring our dog ""Scooter"". He loves it too.

Southern food at its best

I recently ate here with a group of 10 high school students and two other adults from Oregon on a trip to help rebuild. One of the students selected the restaurant from our travel book. I was surprised had how much they enjoyed the food - a few even polished off their bowl of ""greens"" (which all of the adults loved). Most got fried chicken and found it to be a substantial step up from Popeye's. I got the red beans and rice and found it to be delicious. On the whole, it was a positive experience.

Basic Creole Fare - Yum.

We had...chicken, greens, rice, catfish, macaroni and cheese, and fried alligator sausage. All was really good. The chicken was not the best, but the rest was awesome. The catfish was breaded nicely and tasted good (even though I don't like fish; I tried some of the boyfriends'), the greens were plentiful and tasty, and the macaroni and cheese was cheesy and the pasta not too overdone. The prices are pretty good, and we were able to sit down immediately. The waitor was friendly, and the place was definitely well-liked by the people in it. It is a local-type place. We shared one praline for dessert and it was soooo good. I had never had one before, and I fell in love.

One of the best in the world!

Having traveled the world over, living in the San Francisco Bay Area with great restaurants, and being a self-admitted food snob (I have a Chinese stomach), Im not easily won over. Nevertheless, Praline Connection amazed me. The service was decent but the food was excellent. My wife and I have the fried platter and the bbq platter. Here is my opinion: (1) Best Fried Chicken I ever had I want to know how they got the skin just right and how they are the meat so soft, moist and tasty; (2) Best Fried Fish I ever had it just melts in your mouth with all the flavors; (3) almost the best ribs I ever had bite into the ribs and the meat falls off full of flavors; and (4) Best Bread Pudding. Praline Connection is by far one of the best New Orleans restaurants in our experience.

New Orlean's best!

I had the catfish filet. I eat fish everywhere I go, and this is the best catfish I've ever eaten! It was so moist and tender, and had a delightful taste. The location was superb and the interior was homey, comfortable, and pleasant. It's a must-visit!

Fabulous Fare

I am shocked and amazed someone would give this wonderful restaurant a poor review. It is my favorite place to eat in the entire city when I visit. The portions are more than hearty, the food delicious, and the staff attentive. A+!
