How would you rate McHardy's Chicken & Fixin'?
Great chicken! The tenders are made to order and delicious, and the combos are a great deal!
Real good!! Great seasoning!! Great side dishes!! Excellent service. Tastes just like your Grandmother chicken! Old school flavor!! I Would recommend the whole city!!! Keep it up!!
Love this place its my second home!!!
Very pleasant man that took my order. It was maybe a three minute walk from my house. The food was great. Price was great. I will be a repeat customer. ( Catfish Combo was only $6.92. )
My company placed a large order for a holiday event. The chicken and the sides were absolutely amazing. Even better was the service, the lady at the register and the cooks were all so nice! Great pricing too.
Some of the best chicken I have ever had. There is a buttermilk quality to it. And the fried okra. Yum!
Seasonings delicious and service is great! Prices are very reasonable, all around fantastic place to eat, reminds me of Momz chicken
Great service. Friendly staff. The chicken was delicious.
Ordered a Cajun Fried Turkey for our office party. It was absolutely delicious!
Potato salad was good, but the toast was cold and soggy, breaded shrimp (eight included) tasted stale and fishy. Not worth $7
The chicken here is unique. There's a peppery flavor to the chicken that's addictive. After each successive bite I just wanted more! I think this is my favorite fried chicken spot in town. If I could find a comparison, it would be a much better version of KFC'S original recipe. The breading doesn't have the crunchiness like Brothers chicken does. Rather there is a moderate coating of peppery bliss that folds into each succulent bite.
What I appreciate most about this chicken is that the flavors slowly harmonize with the palate and the flavor builds with each successive bite. This differs greatly from most of the fried chicken spots I have been where the approach is to create a first bite of intense flavor. I don't mind this but I think the approach is inferior because after a few pieces my palate is dumbed down and I no longer want to continue eating. This chicken continues to harmonize and engage the palate after 5 pieces without feeling like my palate is being drowned in salt.
My favorite fried chicken is Coops on Decatur, but all of a sudden their popularity has over burdened the place and I don't always feel like dealing with crowds and surliness.
This is my number two, and it's great to have to cater parties, picnics and tailgates. The chicken is perfection.. Lightly coated, peppery, tender and juicy.. Every bite, every piece. The sides are passable, but nothing to go crazy for. It's all about the chicken here. And the price can not be beat with the exception of Manchu wings.
Love my this place well seasoned crispy juicy fresh & hot . Great customer services, clean & cheap
My favorite chicken ever. Taste like the chicken momma fries at home.
Pleasant experience. Friendly, fast, and accurate service backed up by tasty foods served in decent portions at reasonable prices. I like a place that was to scotch tape the to-go container shut because of there's too much food. P. S. Catfish
For authentic, slap your mama fried chicken venture to McHardys and you won't be disappointed. It has long been a favorite of locals but the seasoning, the spices, and the love from the owners and staff make it more than down home comfort food, it's like going to grandmother's home.
Great food lot of options, but inconsistent
Restaurant was clean, service was fast and friendly, food was delicious and a good value for the money.
Best fried chicken in New Orleans (that's readily available for take-out)
Amazing fried chicken. Terrible sides.
Lord have mercy. The best chicken in all of New Orleans. If you're trying to dine out, this isn't the place. All orders are take out--there's absolutely no tables for eating in the establishment.
Otherwise, there is a hearty selection of fried options, including chicken, winglets, catfish, and shrimp. I recommend their chicken. Some of the best in New Orleans. If you're on you way to Popeyes, and can take your order to go, turn around and go here instead.
A+ for brand consistency. Everything in the store was purple! The food was excellent and the price was very easy on the wallet for the amount of food that you get. Highly recommend.
Locally owned & great food. Customer service okay
Fresh chicken, good service. Been going for years!
The fried chicken here is really good; it is a little spicier than Popeye's mild chicken. But it is so much better!
Went here for lunch and I must say that it was a great decision for some fresh hot fried chicken. It was clean on the inside, the lady at the register was very nice and the gentlemen who take care of the chicken did they thang. We really enjoyed it and will definitely visit again.
Friendly staff, good prices, damn good fried chicken 🍗
5 stars for taste....the chicken breast was damn near perfect. I love white meat and the chicken breast wasnt greasy it was juicy and the flavor went all the way to the bone...guys I am talking about a chicken breast....surprisingly note the chicken wing wasn't superb but just okay....it was the breast that won me over!
The BEST Fried Chicken ..but You better not have high blood pressure because I'm not Sure if it's the recipe or the cooks because it's salty but Good...Customer Service is EXCELLENT....I love going here!
Ooooooh yes. From the Northshore and whenever in the city gotta pass by. Uum uum gud. !!!!
Best fried chicken! Its has a unique flavor I havent found anyehere else. Delicious! And they fry turkeys for the holidays. YUM!
I love them fresh hot food very clean, and friendly staff.
Love this establishment, staff is professional, and remembers their returning customers. I love the fried chicken, but please don't sleep on the thin fried catfish or shrimp...my fav!
Great chicken. Worth the wait
🔥🔥FIRE🔥🔥 💣💣FRIED 💣💣💯💯CHICKEN💯💯 Amazing think breading that had a crunch and flavor to die for!
My favorite fried chicken in New Orleans. I love the food. All the sides are fantastic and it's in my neighborhood.
Awesome fried chicken! Love that they don't just cayenne pepper season it. More of a salt -pepper with other seasonings blend. Definitely can't beat the prices either. Love their red beans as a side as well!
Diners heading here need to be mindful that it's a walk up counter with take out only. Great lunch to take to city park and eat there though.
Everything was delicious. My order was made fresh and not sitting under a light for hours.
Good hot and fresh all the time and good service
Yes!! Fried Chicken!! Best fried chicken ever. I am so glad I came here. Food was great and the service was too. I have never really had good fried chicken and now I can say I have. It will be hard to eat chicken again after having this. All of the sides were great too.
They have THE BEST fried chicken ever, it really does taste like home fried chicken...im super impressed!!!!!!
The food is always good & fresh, they re friendly & professional.
Best fried chicken in the area. I’m kind of a connoisseur of fried chicken—I’ve been to almost every one in Orleans and Jefferson Parish (26 and counting); all of them on the “best of” lists, the mom and pops, the chains—everywhere.
I don’t like spicy food just for spicy sake. I like flavorful and McHardy’s is perfect. Crispy on the outside and real moist and juicy, not greasy.
I always bring friends from out of town, they are hooked on McHardy’s now, too!
The folks at McHardy’s are super nice and you cannot beat the prices.
It’s carry out only, no inside dining. They have shrimp, fish and oysters on the menu, too.
Mmmmmm delicious. My go-to, can’t beat, favorite!
My favorite place for fast food.. fresh made to order.. family owned and operated... Fresh n delicious... Friendly.. oh did I say fresh... I love this restaurant... Must visit... Must try.. must eat..
Better than canes, popeyes, kfc, you name it. The best damn chicken I've had in my life. If you're craving something greasy and shameful, there is no better option.
The best chicken in the city. I drive forty five miles just to get McHardy's food. I do this quite often and I am NEVER disappointed.
We tried this place after seeing that it won at the Fried Chicken Festival this year. Chicken was fresh and hot and a great price! It's just a little takeout spot and you have to wait a little because its fresh. The sides weren't so great, but the chicken was really worth it! In case you were wondering, I really don't think this is the sort of place you call ahead for.
The gentleman behind the counter could not have been more helpful for this first time customer. The fried chicken was fantastic, the mac and cheese was well done and creamy. Will I be back? DEFINITELY!!
Good chicken. Just don’t pay for an order in advance and have it ready when promised. Waited 45 min after the rest of the customers were cleared out before anyone would check on it. Customer service needs work.
Dam , that’s some great chicken
Light better , simple seasoning
Knocks your socks off
One of the best places in NOLA for fried chicken! PERIOD. Extremely friendly staff! If you are not a local, worth the trip from the quarter!
Didn't know they had flavored wings. I always had there fried chicken at parties. Wings were surprisingly really good.
10 piece chicken pack was enough for two people and yum it was so tasty! Batter was light and crispy!
Fresh, delicious, hot out the fryer . Chicken tenders are very good. Great, friendly folks there. Never had a bad meal from this place. Always a treat and a pleasure.
Purchased a ten piece with three sides, red beans, Mac and potatoe salad. My Mac and cheese had a hair in it and I didn't have time to bring it back. Other than that, everything else was great.
The chicken here is AMAZING!! Unbelievable!! A little bit of a wait but well worth it!! Best chicken EVER!
Chicken was great but check your order before you leave.. I ordered 3 chicken breasts and three chicken legs and got 2 breast, 2 legs and a wing and a thigh....
One of the best for Fried Chicken. Fried okra is really good. in love with the wings!!! so much sauce left over I can use it with pasta or dip more bread in it!!!
Better than any other chicken.
I LOVE it. Always hot, always fresh
Chicken is good but a little greasy, the red beans and rice though is fantastic! I'd definitely go back!
Strips were dry & unseasoned unless you consider dried parsley a seasoning. I would never patronize this establishment again. Horrible customer service by the “owner” Rahman.
Best fried chicken ever ate cold or hot
I'll pass up Church's Chicken and Popeye fried Chicken any day to get too McHardy
Unimpressed. As a first time customer this establishment will not get another dime from me...Terrible customer service.
Dirty rice was dry, unseasoned and in the smallest serving sized container Ive ever seen! Burger took 11 minutes to make, ESPECIALLY since I was the only customer in the restaurant. I asked what was going on with the order. The owner insisted on telling me how long it takes to make the burger 6 minutes & the steps entailed versus why it was taking so long. Got the food and the burger was beyond BURNT. Fries greasy and soggy.
They might be great with chicken but for this to be New Orleans, the other food they serve is the worst..
This is one of the classic fried chicken joints in New Orleans, hands down. Situated on N. Broad Ave. by the Bayou Rd. Cultural District, this no frills resturant is counter service only You can get a 5-piece of mixed chicken for $6.04, and the price increases by the same amount for 5 more pieces. They have the standard sides like mashed potatoes, dirty rice, and green beans along with others. They also have fried catfish, oyster and shrimp combos as well.
The chicken is flat out delicious and for $6, you cant beat the deal. I WILL recommend calling your order in - you can expect between a 15-20 min. wait if you walk in as they dont drop your order until they get it.
Very good chicken fried just how I ask reason well that was my first time there I will not get chicken from nowhere else promise and I'm telling my entire family about my experience thanks HARDY'S
This is a very good place to eat and work at
Food was either too salty or too sweet! Chicken a lot of Grease wow!!!! One thing is the Customer service was great!! But, food was yelling Hospital!!! I was very disappointed 😔
The given stars were earned in this order. One star is for the customer service. The employees were friendly and professional. Another star is for the food. I ordered the chicken, fries, and dinner rolls, and everything was hot and accurate. Another star goes to the variety of menus items available. If you don’t want chicken there’s shrimp and other options. One more star is for the cleanliness of the place. That explains itself. Finally, the last star goes to the seating. I love that there is seating available while waiting on your delicious food. Overall, I will becoming back and have already shared this info with others.
I been going here for years, done tried everything! It’s so delicious 🤤 the prices are perfect. Just one request please do ubereats lol
A bit long but fresh and worth the wait
Awe Service, Great food. Great for catering large events.
The folks at McHardy's treat you like they appreciate your business and they have my favorite fried chicken and fish.
No tables, get it to go. Decent fried chicken. Busy place.
Their chicken is the best. Always hot and fresh.
It's the best authentic chicken place in the city. They spend a lot of time getting it right and it shows. Thank you Mogillis Family.
The chicken is awesome! Their homemade lemonade and fruit punch are great.
