Frenchy's Chicken

3919 Scott St. Houston, TX 77021 | Outer Loop - SE | 713-748-2233

Location Description:

Crispy, spicy and hot. That's how you'll find the fried chicken at this Third Ward institution. Most people get their Frenchy's Chicken to go, although a few metal tables and chairs are available in this open-air spot. Sides include Creole basics like red beans and rice, dirty rice and jambalaya, all of which are superb, as are the flaky biscuits. The poor boy sandwich made with a spicy Creole sausage makes for a wonderful change of pace.
