    Greatest find ever. Cornbread is fresh and warm. The cocktail sauce for the fried shrimp is amazing. Homemade and spicy. Good on chicken, cornbread, Mac & cheese anything. Fried chicken is awesome.

    Food here is amazing, well presented, wholesome and moderately priced. File gumbo was delicious, as was the jambalaya and the sweet potato pie with pecan sauce. Locals also come here. Great place!

    Great food! Can recommend "A taste of Soul Platter" (approx $24) for 2 people to share. Includes file gumbo red beans & rice, jambalaya greens fried chicken, ribs, catfish strips and bread pudding

    One of the best places in New Orleans to eat must try the fried chicken everything is done the old southern way and prices are truly under priced for quality of food and friendly service

    The fried chicken livers are the best I've ever had. The Eggplant Napoleon is a great dish for vegetarians. You can leave out the crawfish and shrimp sauce that is normally served with it.

    The coolest spot in new Orleans is Frenchman's Street and The Praline Connection is the crown jewel. Something for everyone and the best catfish I've ever had.

    Be sure this is on your "must" list when you visit NOLA. Close to the French Quarter, great value & flavorful soul food.

    I got the sampler platter but the ribs and potato salad were my favorite. The greens didn't have enough vinegar for my taste. The jambalaya was good with an extra kick of hot sauce added.

    Favorite fried chicken in the city. But from the greens to the gumbo and the white beans, everything here is great. If you're there on the Monday, the red beans with a breaded pork chop is awesome.

    Get the New Orleans sampler and split it with at least one other person. You get all the tastes of New Orleans and it's so much food for $23. Service was friendly and the food was delicious!

    So the jazz cruise was a bust, so we came over to the Praline Connection. Food & music is good but it's busy tonight.

    Lima beans are very good, served with rice. You can also ask for cocktail sauce and pepper jelly sauce on the side.

    Fried chicken livers, candied yams and greens. Just like Mamaw used to make. You know you're in the right place when the cops show up to eat.

    Alligator sausage is interesting. Flavorful w/o overpowering. Crawfish éttoufettée was rocking. Chocolate praline yet to be tested, I just was too full to kill it at the table :-)

    Regrettably slow. After waiting 40 minutes for 3 plates of red beans on a Monday, we almost walked out. It was ok. The turkey wing/leg plate was pretty tasty. I lost a part of my life here.
