The opening weekend continues on May 21 with a draw for a PS5; the winner will be drawn on May 23.

Clutch City Cluckers has locations at 5550 Val Verde and 9598 South Main at Texas Medical Center. Katy’s new location is the brand’s third truck in Houston and fourth in Texas (including one in San Antonio). The menu includes hot chicken sandwiches, hot filets and baskets of fries, loaded fries, tender salad, chicken tacos, and meatless sandwiches made with cauliflower filets.

Clutch City Cluckers was founded by Ahmad Kilani, a native of Irbid, Jordan who immigrated to the United States in 2015; he worked at Abu Omar Halal, the halal food truck, and as an investor he now co-owns six hala trucks in Texas and Louisiana. He plans to take Clutch City nationally.
