The Weekly Dish

The first time I had Frenchy’s chicken, I was living in Houston about 15 years ago, and my co-workers insisted I give it a try. Being from the Beaumont area, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was the best fried chicken I’d ever tasted. It had a certain seasoning to it that I never forgot and even craved when I was in the mood for chicken.

Wood Fired Grill inside Jerry Nelson’s Hill Country has been open for nearly a year now, and if you haven’t had the opportunity yet, you really need to give it a try.

Food! So much food! Leftovers from Thanksgiving can be quite overwhelming, especially when you are lying on the couch recuperating from the food coma brought on by the turkey, ham, and all the other fixings. But what’s going to happen when you are no longer stuffed from stuffing? Leftovers can be a nightmare, and turn into a boring routine for the next several days. But they don’t have to be. Fun, delicious, and some downright creative possibilities for that green bean casserole are just a click away.

Mike and Milly Dougay, or as their grandchildren affectionately call them, Boogie and Tootsie, have a reputation for bringing delicious cuisine and signature recipes to Southeast Texas.
