Mother Clucker owner David Oun knew he wanted to keep his kitchen simple when he first hatched the idea for his fried chicken restaurant.

Having cut his teeth in the food industry at various Asian cuisine restaurants in the past, Oun said he decided early on to deviate from their often-complex menus.

"There's like 20 different dishes; they're all cooked different ways,” Oun said. “It's just a headache. ... So that's why I decided on fried chicken.”

Mother Clucker opened in Colleyville in June 2019. Before that, Oun undertook a six-month trial period to perfect his chicken recipes, he said.

“[I was ] just throwing it all together and then having my friends try it,” Oun said. “We came upon ... a really good recipe, and then, with that—then, I was like, ‘You know, what complements chicken is fries.’”

Mother Clucker serves eight different varieties of french fries: waffle, steak, tater tots, sweet potato, regular, shoestring, curly and crinkle.

Such an extensive fry menu would not be complete with sauces to pair, Oun said. Some of the sauce options include honey mustard, sweet chili, Sriiracha ranch and the proprietary Cluckin’ Sauce.

Other than just tenders and fries, Mother Clucker also serves fried chicken sandwiches, grilled chicken salad and chicken wings, as well as an extensive dessert menu.

“We have fried Oreos; we have fried Twinkies, fried Snickers, fried peanut butter and jelly,” he said. "We have a mini funnel cake because, for me, I could never eat a whole funnel cake.”

Oun said despite the COVID-19 pandemic, his business remained steady at the outset because of his decision to remain open.

"When I first opened, [I was] very busy, you know, with the rushes and ... the new restaurant kind of feeling. So after after a little bit, you know, it started dying down a lot,” he said. “We were one of the only, like, two or three restaurants that [stayed open]. ... We were actually doing a lot better during the initial closures.”
