The story behind Frenchy's and its famous fried chicken
Frenchy's started out as a hometown favorite, but people now come from all over to get a taste of the famous fried chicken.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Percy "Frenchy" Creuzot moved to Houston, Texas in 1965 to work as a traveling salesman. But he followed his passion for food and opened a po-boy shop on Scott Street with his wife.

They added fried chicken to the menu soon after, and the legend of Frenchy's Chicken was born.

The iconic restaurant still uses the same family recipe to season the meat, a secret they will never reveal. People now come from all over the city, state, and area to visit the restaurant and try their famous chicken.

Even celebrities like Beyonce and Michelle Williams know Frenchy's for its famous chicken. They were both spotted at the restaurant in 2017 when they were in town to help with Hurricane Harvey relief.
