Punk's Simple Southern Food
Great casual restaurant with wonderful southern style food selections.
This was my 1st visit. There's valet parking for $6 & garage parking. I paid $3 for less than a 2 hour time period there. Not many people there. Went straight to bar - took just under 10 minutes for someone to tend to me. (Maybe they were giving me a chance to check out the menu...IDK, but a glass of water would've been nice. Finally, I was acknowledged, ordered a drink (Punk's Lemonade) - $10, it okay. For dinner I had the chicken tenders . Asked my server for her feedback regarding the side
options, she stated if I was looking for 'your Grandma's mac'n'cheese, then this ain't it but it's good". So I decided on that, along with the collard greens. Surprisingly, the greens had more flavor than the mac, which was just okay. The tenders lacked seasoning & the gravy was nice and thick but lacked flavor. Overall, I liked the decor - nice, upbeat music played in the background but the food was kind of boring. I'm in no rush to go back but am willing to give them another try.
I had my birthday dinner at this restaurant and the service was amazing. We were able to be seated before majority of my party arrived. We were told ahead of time about the possible ticket delays due to it being a large party with multiple separate tickets. accommodations were made when more people than expected arrived and we were informed about their house specials ahead of time. Great service and great location!!
The restaurant was so nice. It was my first time there. I was celebrating my birthday. They were so accommodating when I had to add more people to my party at the last minute. The food was so great and the drinks were wonderful. I will be visiting again for brunch. Thank you for making my birthday so special
Great food! Parking is an issue, but they have valet. Love the fried chicken!!
The food and service for Sunday Brunch was excellent. I had gone a couple of times in the past and can’t recall the food being this delicious. Something has definitely changed for the better.
Went for a girls birthday celebration! Great brunch spot!
Great atmosphere for enjoying good southern cooking with a twist.
Phenomenal, but the all you can chicken and champagne wasn’t a great vslue
Sunday night special for all-you-can-eat/drink fried chicken and champagne was a very good deal. They brought out all the food we wanted, and we could ask for extra breasts or wings, etc. All freshly prepared and very good. The champagne pours were in small glasses, but our waiter was pretty good about trying to keep them full; only a few incidents were we had to wave to get more. Save room for the banana pudding if you can! We had stopped going to Punk's a couple years ago and this has brought us back.
have been here multiple times. service excellent; food outstanding. perfect for bringing company whose needs were as follows.....brunch, dog friendly and ability to watch sports.
Fried Chicken & Champagne Sunday special was so good. One of the few places we’ve been to where all you can eat & drink really means that. Our server never let our glasses get empty and brought more sides and chicken as soon as we asked.
My friend and I wanted to try a new brunch spot and I’m so glad we chose Punk’s! The fried pickles were a great appetizer and the chicken and waffles did not disappoint. My favorite part about our visit was the customer service. All of the staff were so nice and our waitress was very knowledgeable. I can’t wait to go back and try the shrimp and grits!
The best things about this place is the fried chicken and the owner, I love it when management is out there with the floor staff talking to patrons and helping to ensure each diner has the best experience, staff is knowledgeable on the menu with awesome suggestions, I have yet to have an unpleasant experience from brunch with friends to a dinner for 2, its an awesome experience every time!
The atmosphere is very friendly and the food is great!
Don’t miss the hush puppies. A great warm-up for a great southern comfort food meal.
The fried chicken is fabulously from somewhere in the 50’s. Can be order by the piece, so have a wing or share a thigh with the hush puppies.
And a great wine-by-the -glass selection.
Great customer service and food
i came for my birthday I was very disappointed I had come for christmas for our christmas party and the food was awesome
This time the food was cold the amount changed of the chicken the waffle was not done and coffee was cold the other guest had to send back food and got waffles and chicken that was hot and look better than mine
I was very sad because I has been waiting for the chicken for A WEEK
The food was good, lot of healthy options as well, but that banana pudding... yum!
The customer service and conflict resolution from management was horrible. There was a parking issue, because valet was unattended, they were late and not opened yet. The only resolvent that four managers who were conversing on the side of the restaurant and acting like new college students who just graduated from high school was to inconvenience the patron, because they didn't know how to resolved an issue that resulted in an unsatisfied customer leaving their restaurant. I'm sure they didn't care and have an excuse for their unprofessional mismanaged issue. They wanted to smooth over everything by sending the hostess; because your male spokesperson put his foot in his mouth. That was a poor choice for service recovery.
My wife and I enjoyed this gym. The fried chicken was absolutely delicious as well as the collard greens, deviled eggs and corn bread. The service is always excellent (our second time). Great value for the money. It’s worth the 45 minute drive for us to visit.
Tuesday night get together with various families.
Staff was friendly and accommodating, just SLOW and there were very few patrons.
Great area to hang out especially because kids can play.
Menu options somewhat limited.
Good food and good place. 2nd time eating here and we were not disappointed
We took our grandchildren here for a special treat after playing at a park and they were HUNGRY... they are preschoolers so not super patient. We chose to sit outside, and our server was great. The little ones had placemats and markers to entertain themselves with and the kids menu had actual fruits and vegetables! Our grown up food.... the cheeseburger for my husband and the black bean burger for me were also great. Playing in the courtyard when we were finished was better than dessert!
The food was simple and amazing. The staff was wonderful. The venue was quaint.
I enjoyed the experience ; however, the food was not as good as I remembered.
After having the best, juiciest, fried chicken in Houston for years, something has changed terribly. Our whole bird came out, dry, 3 of the pieces completely void of any crust at all. It was terrible. The drinks were way too sweet. The only good think I can say is they had Nickel and Nickel chardonnay for a very reasonable price. We will not go back.
I wish they had celebrated the birthday we were having. I let them know on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, they mentioned it when we got there, then nothing. That was disappointing but everything else was excellent.
The service is incredibly quick. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.
Food was good except for the seafood platter the fish tasted old and didn’t have much flavor. Service was ok I had to track the server down to get what I needed more than once. The chicken and waffles were delicious tender pieces of chicken with good flavor. The pecan chicken was also a winner! Nice atmosphere.
First time visiting.. I will defiantly visit again...
Everything was awesome! We enjoyed the food, drinks, atmosphere, and service!
Great experience. Service was slightly lacking - forgot my order, didn’t check on my group often. Other than that I really like punks.
First time we picked this spot for a sunday brunch. Everything was amazing, from the moment we stepped in to the second we walked out. Food was absolutely amazing and service even better. The space is extremely cozy and it feels like you’re having brunch at grandmas kitchen on an spring day. Absolutely fabulous. Can I mention again how amazing our server was ? I can’t remember her name but I’m sure that whole crew is great! This will for sure become my go to whenever I’m in Houston.
Girls day Brunch!!! Excellent food and great service!!!
Great tasty food
Great food and awesome customer service. Our waitress, Devin is the BEST!
I really love Punks or say loved. Since last time we went, the menu has changed. They used to serve their friend chicken with mashed potatoes. Now it just comes with a biscuit and pickle. Also, they removed the buffalo chicken sandwich from the menu so you can't have the buffalo sauce anymore to accompany your friend chicken. That and the chicken were awesome together. The El Pelpino is also super. The mac n cheese and fried chicken is to die for but wasn't happy with the menu changes.
Chicken fried steak was very good but signature fried chicken was a disappointment. Service was attentive and drink selection was fine. On a chilly night the cold drafts caused by the constant in an out to the terrace will be a problem for many people.
Early Valentine's date, great food and service, highly recommend!
