For me, Punk’s serves the most satisfying food of the several Clark Cooper Concepts restaurants. Their fried chicken is well-regarded, even if it might not be the best fried chicken in America or the best fried chicken in the world that I heard an overly aggressive (and intrusive) waiter exclaim in quick succession there the other day. It’s quite good, though. And will likely be even better with a glass or several more of a fine champagne. Along with the fried chicken and bubbles, these meals include mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, collard greens and banana pudding to finish.
Reservations are required for these dinners, which will be every Sunday from 4:00 to 9:00. Also, it will end up being more than $50 before tax and gratuity as the champagne refills will be charged a cent per refill, likely due to one of the strange TABC rules. It’s still quite a deal as Veuve Clicquot is not only a very good champagne but typically retails between $45 and $55 per bottle. The only real downside to this meal is that your champagne glass will necessarily a bit sticky when accompanying fried chicken. A minor drawback, I believe.
