I love tasty delicious fried chicken wings. I used to love going to Frenchy's to get my wings. Not anymore. It's true that their prices have increased so much that now I just pass the restaurant on the way to somewhere more reasonable. Whatever the reason for the price hike, I just don't care. Frenchy's is history. A faded memory of when the food was good and the prices were reasonable. I was about done when they charged extra when you didn't want ice in your drink. WTH? These restaurants are going crazy. But I won't be going there with them.

Look I know we are all facing challenging times but this is totally unacceptable. This price hike is rediculous. I urge the public and loyal customers of Frenchy's to boycott this chain. I personally love their chicken but I be darned if I'm going to pay 8.99 for a five piece wing dinner. I thought 6.99 was too much but oh well. Then today I in their story to see this sign posted annoucing their new price structure. Basically they have increased pricing by 2.00 per order. what the 0)*&)^&^(^%*. Customers let show our power by boycotting Frenchy's. At this rate they obviously feel they own us instead of the other way around. Boycot...boycot...boycot!

Went to the Frenchy's on Scott. There were lots of people around so I figured that the chicken would be hot and fresh....WRONG!!! I got the 5pc wing dinner and the chicken was so cold and dry if it had not been for the strawberry soda I would have CHOKED! I asked for extra seasoning for my fries and I got NO seasoning for my fries and to top it off the peppers they gave me were so small I could not even use the juice from the pepper to moisten the dry chicken!!! For more than 8$ they will not have to worry about me....I passed up Popeyes for this horrible mess!!!

I love Frenchy's Chicken and although the locations on Scott near TSU/UH and inside of HEB are better tasting than the Kirby location I have never been dissatisfied with the food at Frenchy's on Kirby until today. This evening I went to the drive thru and ordered a King Special. I only live about 10 minutes away so there was definitely not enough time for my fries and chicken to be cold. When I tasted the fries they were cold and greasy and appeared to be halfway cooked. The chicken was also cold and tasted like it had been sitting out all day. I was very disappointed and have to agree with the majority of the people who say the Kirby location is not as good as either location on Scott.

A new Frenchy's opened recently and I ordered red beans & rice (dry and tasteless), shrimp etouffe (good), dirty rice (tasteless) and chicken (thin battered and greasy) . Very disappointed in veiw of all the raves. I'll take Popeye's and KFC over Frenchy's any day.

As a UH alumni, I tell you this is a Houston institution! Yep, you'll wait a while if you come during the rush, just like Niko Niko's or Thelma's. But all good things come to those to wait! This is the best fried chicken in the world. Chains are put to shame. The biscuits are also very awesome. How many times I came here doing college is ridiculous. Although eating fried chicken actually shows up on me now, a trip to Frenchy's every so often is a must!

After reading all the rave reviews, went to my nearest one off of Tidwell and 45. I've never seen a restaurant where u got to line up outside. (No inside dining) I guess if it rains u just get wet...interesting concept. Its either that or drive thru. Chicken was good but a little pricy. I got a 10 piece mix & 2 sides and ran me $20. A little pricy considering chains like Popeyes and KFC. (I thought it should have been cheaper since they cut cost in overhead - ie inside dining) Chicken was good, but not any better than popeyes or KFC. Sides were average.

Oh my God! I drive 80 miles once a week to get this chicken and you know gas is 3.50 a gallon. I must say the chicken is down home cooking chicken! Also, the cabbage you have to drive I am serious. Everytime I go to this place the drive thru line flows into the streets! You may wait 30 minutes or more in line but the chicken is well worth it. Also, the windown line is long too. If you want to eat there you muse sit outsidde on picnic tables. The best location is 3919 Scott it is the orginal location in 3rd ward off Scott...............45S and exit Scott...........This building is hood but you will love the food! This is a must try!

Love this place! Everytime I'm in the neighborhood, or someone from the neighborhood come to visit me, I beg to go there. I don't care how long the line is. Sometimes it wraps all around the rest. and out into the street. It's worth it! Awsome chicken, yummy seasoned fries, and you gotta get a large strawberry soda to go with. The jambalya is so good too. Keep in mind that all Frenchy's are not the same. But this location is one of the originals. Mmmm hungry just thinking about it.

I heard about Frenchy's forever before I finally tried it... at 1 a.m. after burning a few trees! Needless to say it was the best fried chicken I've ever had and I haven't been back to Popeye's since! The Scott Street store is a legend for deserving reasons and it's the perfect place to grab a meal before watching a game on the UH campus. There are always lines, but the employees have always been friendly. Order the King Special and fill up. Remember to eat your Frenchy Fries first, though-- they're seasoned to perfection but they get cold and stale fast. The red beans and rice are also incredible. Do yourself a favor and get some Frenchy's tonight!
If you have never eaten at the Frenchy's location located on Scott Street in Houston you are missing out on a real treat. The chicken has just the right amount of seasoning, spices, and flavor. It's not greasy at all and best when eaten hot and fresh. They also have many other side dishes such as fries, cornbread, pies, greens, etc. but in my opinion just the chicken by it self is worth the trip.

I just had my first chicken dinner from Frenchy's, and it is the real deal! greasy, crispy, perfectly golden fried pieces of juicy chicken. the french fries were average but the seasoning they put on them is YUMMY! the biscuits were perfectly buttery with just a taste of honey on top, ono! and the cornbread was soft and sweet. DEFINITELY try the strawberry soda.. like creme soda with strawberry!
