Those with a craving for spice would argue that the sensational cayenne-spiked fried chicken at the original Frenchy's on Scott St. is the best in town. Percy “Frenchy” Creuzot, a friend of New Orleans legend Austin “The Godfather of Fried Chicken” Leslie, brought the spicy Creole fried-chicken tradition of Louisiana to Houston in 1969. (Incidentally, the drive-in restaurant also serves a remarkable rendition of red beans and rice.)
