Drake’s favorite destination for Nashville-style hot chicken debuts in Bayou City this week. Dave’s Hot Chicken will open its first location in the Houston area this Friday, September 24 in West Houston (12161 Westheimer Rd.).

Founded in 2017 by Dave Kopushyan – a classically trained chef and veteran of Thomas Keller’s Bouchon restaurant – Dave’s serves halal chicken fillets and sandwiches in seven different spice levels that each have their own recipes. The menu also includes side dishes such as kale salad, mac and cheese, crispy fries and cheese fries, as well as milkshakes.

Originally opened as a food truck, Dave’s expanded into several brick and mortar locations in Southern California. This week, the company announced that hip-hop superstar Drake has become one of its biggest investors.

“I tried the food and it was amazing,” Drake said in a statement. “After meeting the founders and hearing their stories, I jumped at the opportunity to invest.

So far, the company has signed leases for six Houston-area restaurants and is negotiating even more. In addition to the Westchase store, the business will open at the following locations:

  • 2525, boul. (shared apartment with Velvet Taco)
  • 614 Dennis St. (The Crossing at Midtown)
  • 6324 Highway 6 South (Missouri City)
  • 15245 Wallisville Road
  • 20740 Kuykendahl Road (Spring)
  • 148 El Dorado Blvd (Webster)

A representative told CultureMap that the Midtown location will open in late October or early November. Rice Village and Wallisville Road will follow by the end of the year. As seen in the photo above, Dave works with local graffiti artists to decorate each store, giving each one a distinct look.
