Crispy, peppery skin with a crunch and juicy, tender white and dark meat have made Frenchy's fried chicken a Houston staple for almost 40 years. One taste of a thigh or drumstick here and you'll be reminiscing about your grandma's cast-iron skillet while blotting your greasy fingers on an accompanying tower of napkins (they even hook you up with moist towelettes). Frenchy's fried chicken is best paired intermittently with its buttery, fluffy biscuits, a honey-lick of sweetness on top to offset the saltiness. Most people stay in their cars to order from the friendly staff at the no-frills location on Scott, but walking up to the screened-in order counter is almost always faster, and don't forget your side of bacon-tinged collards or the legit red beans and rice. Frenchy's was, after all, the brainchild of a New Orleans native, and it could rival any Popeyes.
