The most heavenly chicken tenders ever. Buy a bottle of ponko sauce. You will not be disappointed. I had to drive these to South Carolina in order to stay at my friend's house they are that good.

Visited for dinner and I can't believe I never heard of Ponko Chicken before. Simply delicious, I had the chicken tacos and I didn't regret it, juicy and yummy sauce over coleslaw and fried chicken tenders. To that, add really nice service, Belle was the cashier and she was super polite and gave us some ideas on what to order since it was our first time eating here. Definitely coming back really soon More...

Super tasty! I got the Ponko chicken 3 piece meal with sticky rice and fries. It was delicious and I loved the seaweed seasoning on the fries! Their sauces are lovely too!

Most delicious fried chicken fingers I have ever had.... and I consider myself a chicken finger expert :)  The staff was so welcoming as well.  The green beans, fries, slaw.... basically everything we've tried here has been delicious.  I highly recommend PONKO! I do suggest they add some honey mustard to their selection of dipping sauces although their ranch was to die for. More...

Ponko has a delightfully interesting take on fast casual, merging together southern chicken elements with Asian sides and sauces. The rice was delicious and the fries were well seasoned. More...

I was curious one day and decided to try this place out with my friend. I was not disappointed!!!! PONKO Chicken is located in an unusual area right next to a medical clinic and there's plenty of parking. It can get crowded but ordering up front is quick and easy. There's so many cool things I wanted to try here but I ended up getting the Ponko Chicken with fries and white rice which ended up being a good combo. Something about the way they make their chicken makes it crispy and flavorful. I'd love to come back and you should too! More...

If you’ve had chicken prior to trying ponko ... THINK again.. this place will become your favorite spot in a matter of seconds. Mark leads the bar and is the best employee here— not only is he the hype man of Ponko , but mixes the best drinks this side of the Mississippi. Don’t let the name fool you, Ponko chicken has a full bar and even better menu. You would be kidding yourself if you didn’t come here. More...

They have the type of crispy sweetness, savory goodness, sticky rice without the icky kind of food that you will dream about and wake up in hot sweats! Only to find out that the one by you closed down and years later they reopen at this very location!The pankco chicken is amazing! I like the blend of the original mixed with the spicy and of course the sticky rice and the salad are just perfect together in a combo! More...

Ponko is one of my favorite fried chicken spots! The crust is flavored perfectly and cooked to a wonderful crisp. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, here. OG tacos, Spicy tenders, fries, salads, and cake cups! Carrot cake or red velvet are my favs! More...

One of the best places to eat in my opinion. Their chicken tenders are TO DIE for! My absolute favorite they have awesome service great drinks and the manager Noah there is always friendly and has a smile on his face. Sad we'll be moving soon as we live right down the road but I'm sure my body will thank me and I will still make the drive! More...

Since Ponko Chicken opened its doors, I have been dying to go! However, I never found myself by their location, or honestly wanting to brave I-285 East traffic after work. .. But today I sucked it up, and BOY WAS IT CLUCKING GOOD. I decided to be #healthy and get a Ponko salad, but I couldn't resist their Ponko fries I had seen other foodies post about. This is a great fast casual spot. If you're ever in the mood to taste what happens when "Eats Meets West," give them a try! You won't regret it. More...

I recently moved to Atlanta and I'm working within walking distance of this restaurant. I had it flagged and had been meaning to stop in and try the food after reading the reviews. Finally, today we had the chance. Everything was spectacular, from the food to the service to the venue. The food was absolutely delicious!! I got the 3 piece chicken tenders with a side salad with sesame dressing (omg amazing) and PONKO fries. I'm not a huge fries person but didn't know what else to get. Wow, they were delicious!!  Service was excellent too. I can only rave about this place. I cannot wait to be back! Highly recommend ! More...

I really love this place. I feel like it's a little expensive for some fried chicken but I'm so addicted that I don't even care. Their fried tofu is out of this world good. I've never had anything like it and I'm scared to ever leave Atlanta because I'll have to leave it behind. They have the most perfectly cooked rice and their fries are out of this world. I like the original flavor and the spicy is a nice change of pace. I've never had anything else on the menu because Iove the tofu plate so much. One day I'd like to do the bucket with beer with some friends. If you're thinking about it you should go! More...

The staff is friendly and the fried chicken (which is on almost every dish on the menu) is great. I had the tacos and my friend had the salad and both were very good. The salad was huge! Their sweet potatoes fries are legit and they use spices on them to give them that little extra flavor. There’s inside and outside seating and they have an enclosed outside section with lights too.

Great restaurant! Never had Ponko style chicken, but it was excellent. It's a lightly breaded fried chicken. The original sauce was similar to sweet and sour sauce. Next time I'm going to try spicy! Leave your dishes on the table. They have bussers that come to the table! More...

Second time in today and it was great! Cool vibe in midtown. Enjoyed the music and the doors open onto the patio. We like the OG chicken over spicy, which tastes a bit vinegary to me. Fries are a must, and I love the pickles and green beans! They were out of the lemongrass for one of their drinks, but came over and made sure it was okay to serve me without that element - was still great! Usually no wait and on street parking all around.

Stopped by because of my passbook influenced me! We also have some friends in my group who love chicken. Seeing that this place has both chicken and veggie patty, we decided to give this place a try! And it was the best decision that we made! The parking was decent. When we went, they weren't too busy either. The inside was spacious and they had a bar as well! I ordered the plate, which comes with 2 sides. The patty doesn't come with rice, you'll have to choose rice as a side. And I also ordered the seasoned fries! At the table, they bring you ranch, and soy sauce in a bottle. I got the patty as a spicy patty as well. The patty itself wasn't really spicy in my opinion. Although the patty was delicious and the food, I think that it would've been even better if they had a thousand island sauce mixture like the Japanese would have it. But, this is a place that I would def return. My friends agreed fully as well! More...

Mmmm. I love the spicy chicken. I got the $9 platter which comes with three chicken tenders and had fries and salad as my two sides. Food was delicious- chicken was flavorful and moist, salad was fresh, fries were sinful. The interior is very modern and clean. Highly recommend! More...

YOOOO vro this is some of the best chicken I have ever eaten :0 I had been taking dabs and rolling fatties all day so I was a hungry boi and this place looked pretty good. So see the chicken tenders They are juicy and tender and white (like my girl lol) on the inside and have the perfect amount of crisp and crunch on the outside, idk if they use panko or some shit but it's incredible. It's got this sweet kind of sauce soaked in just enough to add some extra sweetness and moisture to the chicken. It's hot and it comes out quick and it's not too bad price wise. I also got the fries and they have this seasoning on them I think it's seaweed but it's the. Best! Ask for Ponko sauce it's the best one as I find the soy sauce too...tangy or something, idk I just like creamier sauces ( °  °)Overall this place is very good if you got the munchies want real damn good chicken fast but fancier More...

I loved it here. While it's fast food really it's great fast food and that's not easily found. I love the chicken it's always tasty and moist, but the stars for me were the beans and the salads. We tried not to love it as there is not a Ponko even close to Canton, but we do love it and have returned a couple of times regardless of the long drive. I frequent the Dekalb Farmers market and when on that side of Atlanta we enjoy us some Ponko. More...

Absolutley delicious! Great price point. High quality food. Only negative is we thought the chicken would come with rice as standard but each and every side is an upcharge.

The spicy chicken salad is my favorite. I pretty much get it weekly. It's basically breaded chicken strips with a little kick to it on a bed of romaine lettuce with purple cabbage, wonton strips, and carrots. It's so simple yet so good. I've tried their tacos here once too. You have to catch it on a certain night, as they're not offered everyday. I tried the original, barbeque, and the spicy chicken. Bbq was my least favorite. They're quick and staff is always friendly. It's usually busy and for good reason. More...

J

If you want a place that is quick, tasty, and has great customer service... Come here! The tacos are my favorite, but I especially love the fried tofu salad, and my partner always gets the teriyaki sandwich. I've had everything on the menu and it's always hot, cooked perfectly, and served with a smile. Even their pick-up orders are streamlined! Also, you can purchase a bottle of their sauces and we always buy an "OG" sauce to take home! More...

PONKO has something for everyone: Asian fusion chicken tenders. The best chicken tenders I've (probably) ever had. This location had a few games we could play. There was plenty of seating and a small bar inside. It seemed like they weren't serving some of their drinks or desserts every time we went. The food came out really quick!I liked the OG flavor the best, but the spicy and BBQ were good too. The OG was slightly sweet and tossed in signature PONKO sauce. The spicy was actually a bit spicy (but not really if you have a higher spice tolerance). The chicken was always juicy and tender every time--not crunchy at all. I also enjoyed most of their sides, especially the sweet fries, which are normal sweet potato fries. The rice was always moist when we went, drizzled slightly with PONKO sauce. I think the chicken and sides were slightly too drenched in sauce sometimes.PONKO is good food and a common go-to if we're not feeling anything in particular. A little on the pricier side for chicken tenders, but the plate with two sides is always filling. More...

I was wondering what all the buzz was about this place. Had so many friends of mine mention it on their social media. I have been to Ponko 3-4 times ever since they had started as a VERY small restaurant when they only 4-5 seats and this was the first time I tried them with two of my friends 1-2 years ago. I tried their Ponko chicken strips with their original flavor with two side combo, which I tried their fries and salad. Salads are pre-made in a box and I asked for a vinagarette I think. Tasted decent and the fries are too. Chicken was juicy and the original flavor was good. The second time I went, they had expanded and had much more space and I ordered the same thing as the the first time. It was consistent. Third time I went was recently last week. With the whole Popeyes spicy chicken hype, I tried Ponko's chicken sandwich with their spicy flavoring. I also ordered their green bean special which was an additional up-charge. It is a little pricey just for a chicken sandwich, but the spice was okay. Not as spicy as I would like. The slaw was good, but makes the sandwich a bit messy to eat, some bites were more saucy than others but the chicken was big and juicy still with a good crunch. I think the spicy sauce that they put on the chicken makes the chicken crust a bit soft. I would probably order the chicken sandwich again ($10). The green beans didn't taste like anything except overwhelmed with so much of the miso sauce. The green beans were also thinner than expected. I would definitely try this place if you're craving some fusion fried chicken. It has gotten a bit more expensive than the initial trip, but probably because they are more popular now. I wish there was an accessible trash can. There is also a bar for your alcoholic needs and I think they have trivia games sometimes. It is right off the Chamblee exit from 85N. Decent food to fill you up, but a bit expensive. More...

PONKO Chicken is a very tasty option for the fried chicken aficionados. The flavors of Korean spice mixed with a crispy batter are very good. They have a nice beer selection as well.

PONKO CHICKEN... Japanese ingredients with an American style and set up. I don't believe PONKO CHICKEN has been around for long but I hope they do well. I love their set up and although their menu looked confusing at first, it really isn't!! Chicken, salads, sandwiches and plates... all with your favorite style of chicken and sides. Our friends Jeff and Kimberly joined us to check them out and we were all in agreement by the time we left... GOOD flavors!! Jeff ordered a GRILLED TERIYAKI CHICKEN PLATE, Kimberly ordered a VEGAN PATTY with BBQ sauce, Sara ordered an original HOT DOG with SLAW and a HAWAIIAN BUN along with a POTATO SALAD and I ordered their regular PONKO CHICKEN PLATE which came with 2 sides, I picked their PONKO FRIES and BROWN RICE. My meal cost me $12 (5 piece chicken) and Sara's cost $8. The PONKO chicken is simply delicious, I was pleasantly surprised as I was not expecting the slight sweet taste and crispy fried chicken. Their fries reminded me of TAKOREA's (later review) french fries with how they are fried, definitely double fried. Their brown rice was well made and easy to eat with chop sticks. All together with all the flavors, the plate was a winning combination. I had a taste of my buddy's TERIYAKI CHICKEN and although good, it was a bit too strong for my liking, I prefered the PONKO CHICKEN. I also had a taste of Sara's hot dog because her eyes lit up when she bit into it. Let me tell you... this is a serious hot dog!! The hot dog itself seemed to be fried with a slight very thin crust that gave it a slight sweet taste and the coleslaw added a good crunch to it. Unfortunately their potato salad is one of the worst potato salads I've had in quite some time and it ended up in the trash. It smelled weird, had an off taste and left an after taste with some type of spice i'm not familiar with. Their fountain machine had their COKE flavor out of order which was a bummer but some of us grabbed a COKE ZERO. I wish they had some sauces but that we know of, there are none. The french fries go well with their ketchup but our table didn't have any so we had to ask for a bottle. As we got ready to leave we noticed the table next to us getting the PONKO tacos... the plate had a like of 3 tacos and they looked delicious!!! Had I been by myself and not thought it would embarrass my wife, I would have gone straight back to the counter to get 3 tacos. Going in I had no expectations but left the place pleasantly surprised. I can't wait to stop by again with some friends and see what they all think. Roli's Rating:1. Service: 7/10, Nice and friendly place from the time you come in until you leave. You order over the counter and get a number and then get your food fairly quickly. Drinks are self serve and you are not waited on by the staff2. Price: 8/10, They don't get a 9-10 because although you do have an item or 2 that can help you stay cheap (individual tacos, hot dog), most of their items , once you order a drink, will take you above the $10 mark3. Location and Parking: 9/10, Location is very easy to get to, right off 85. The parking isn't a problem and should never be as there is wrap around parking4. Cleanliness: 8/10, The place looked new and fairly clean5. Health Rating: A (100)6. Roli Overall Rating: 7/10, I would travel long distances to eat at this location... every other week **Roli's Recommendations**HOT DOG, PONKO CHICKEN IN WHATEVER FORM (PLATE, TACOS, SALAD), PONKO FRIES More...

There was one man in particular, don't know if he was the owner or manager, but he stopped by each table and asked how everything was. What extremely amazing customer service!?! I ordered their chicken with rice and fries. All the seasoning was on point and the chicken was fried perfectly! Their white sauce was delicious too! I also ordered their green tea margarita!! Went down smoothly and just tasted great!! Would highly recommend trying this place out! More...

I really love PONKO chicken. Everything I've had from the menu is good from the fries to sweet tea to desserts. I eat here about once or twice a week. So the reason I did not give it five stars is because I've noticed that chicken tenders keep getting smaller and skinnier. I'm afraid my next visit will result in three pencil sized pieces of chicken. The cost for the chicken tender meal is on the higher side for some itty bitty chicken strips. I use to enjoy this place but do not think I can keep justifying $10 for a cup of rice, lettuce with wonton strips topped with dressing, and exactly 12 bites of chicken. More...

The chicken sandwich with original sauce and sweet potato fries is SOOO good! I’ve recently tried there grilled chicken Salad and it was delicious! ! The grilled chicken has that real char taste that other places don’t have plus it’s tossed in there signature sauce still warm and placed on the side to put over the fresh Asian inspired salad!

I've been a customer in Stone Mountain since the FOOD EASE days and I have been happy since the day they've came back . Consistency is key here and they get it every single time. I don't know why it took me this long to (take a pic and) show love on Google but here it is . I only get the tenders but have been experimenting with the sides from day one and have never veered South as far as expectations go. Support this business if you can. Good food, good people, GREAT FLAVORS!As a native of Stone Mountain5 f-ing stars . More...

Amazing food, great name. You can't go wrong with the Ponko Chicken and Fries. The salad is also amazing. The place has a great design and it's super clean. You can even play Jenga while you wait a full minute for your food to arrive - I might be exagerating but it is prepared crazy fast. More...

My cousin, Craig Wolpert, has been going on and on about Ponko Chicken. I have never tried it. Tonight he brought home chicken tenders for the kids. There was 1 leftover so he asked if I wanted it. DANG!!! Best tender ever. Moist, crunchy with a taste of honey. Craig was right! More...

It's hard to take something simple and turn it into something amazing but PONKO Chicken has done just that. Their food is simple in the fact that it's just chicken, rice, fries, etc but they have perfected the simplicity and created some delicious food! I got the OG Chicken Plate with PONKO rice and fries. The flavor of the sauce was known but not overpowering and if you wanted more, just could just dip it into the extra sitting at the bottom of the bowl and the crunchiness of the fried chicken and the fries was perfect! I also bought one of The Betty cookies which is a thin and crispy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I don't normally like crunchy cookies but this one was amazing. I am definitely DTP (Down to Ponko) again! More...

23 July 2019

So good! Such a place to experience, don't go here if you're dull, try all they have to offer and not just in one sitting. Overall you just have to be used to taste and open-minded. Everything they have is so good! And it's a blessing and a curse that there isn't much. More...

I love eating here albeit is a little more expensive than zaxbys or other chicken franchises. I know that it is difficult to compare the two but if it were a little bit more affordable I would eat here more often. I always get the ponko plate with spicy tenders and the ponko fries. Man those fries are good!  I also like their ranch dressing they provide with the tenders. I don't know what they do to it but is definitely got the right flavors. The little cucumber relish they put is also nice and I wish they would provide more per order. All in all this is a great place to eat some chicken. I hear they have trivia night on Tuesday's and will definitely check that out at some point. More...

Yay!!! Yay! Yay!! Their original location, way back in the early 2000s, used to be blocks from my house near Stone Mountain.  We used to frequent it all. The.  Time. We were heartbroken when they closed.  When I heard they reopened I was THRILLED but saddened because, alas, now I live in Florida.  Never fear, I visit at least 4 times a year so now I can eat all the ponko I want!! I have nothing else to say except their chicken is the best!!!!! More...

I've been hearing about this place for a while and I finally came here because they were listed in the Atlanta Dining Out Passbook (note that the coupon only applies to tenders + 1 side and not other menu items like salads or sandwiches! ). The interior is absolutely gorgeous and the restaurant still looks very new. I sat by the bar so I could grab one of their many beers on taps. Fun fact - they serve their own Ponko Beer and it's only $2 during their happy hour!I ended up getting some spicy tenders and some fries. Lots of flavor to the tenders and they have a bit of a honey-tasting sweetness to them. I wish the fries were loaded with more of that delicious seasoning they put on it, but I still highly recommend! I absolutely loved the food here and I plan to come back. More...

Okay, I'm glad to say I am back with a five star rating. The customer service can vary depending on what time you're going, I still stand by that but I love this place too much to not come back and update that last review. I get the same order every single time and I always love it, so that in its self merits 5 stars. And the owner is friendly as well! More...

Ponko’s was GOOD. TODAY was my very first time ordering for delivery. It was very tasty. Just an FYI......mayo shouldn’t go on ALL sandwiches. Some people are allergic such as myself.

N
25 June 2019

Good chicken! I like getting the plate which comes with 3 pc tenders and two sides. The salad is really simple, but the sweet sesame dressing is amazing! Nothing too heavy, and not overly sweet. Personally, I think the spicy tenders is too salty and just not spicy enough. I do like how one of the side choices can be rice, but it's rice with a sort of sweet sauce drizzled on. Which is good, but I feel that this place just throws sauce on everything. Regardless, definitely will be back if I'm ever in the area. More...

Great restaurant. I remember their being a location in Stone Mountain and it closed down. I was so sad about the closing because the food was good.

Good food, good location and great prices for what you order here More...

I was visiting GA for a week and I ended up eating here as my first and last meal! Delicious! Crispy and quick-to-order fried chicken. I've only tried the strips but I loved them both spicy and regular! The second time I went with my boyfriend, my server had a computer malfunction and thus the receipt with my order never printed to the kitchen. There was a delay in us getting our food because of this, but our server made it right and gave us a free drink for the trouble! Will be back for sure! More...

We went to Ponko chicken this past Friday and the chicken was amazing! It was crispy but also super juicy inside. Their ponko sauce was great not too sweet and their customer service was fantastic.

I always go here for a quick bite to eat with friends, and we love it! My spicy chicken tenders with some brown rice were delicious along with the classic Ponko fries dipped in the special sauce.

I went up to the counter and ordered the 4 spicy tofu tender plate with potato salad and side salad, walnut cilantro dressing. Everything I had was delicious! The tofu tenders were crisp and the spicy sauce was very tasty! I liked the side salad with wonton strips and the dressing was subtle but tasty. I also ordered the matcha margarita (not pictured) and it was good; my only complain is not enough matcha flavor but i am someone who loves matcha. More...

Been there twice, and both times I found the food to be excellent. Chicken tenders, potato salad, cole slaw and green beans are all quite tasty.

This place it great for a quick bite or just to sit and relax. The staff and management at the Chamblee Ponko are wonderful, whenever we have a problem they are quick to fix it. The food is the best, they have changed the menu, but makes it much easier for folks with diet or budget restrictions. My family and I frequently this place multiple times a month in the past, but just recently visited and noticed the changes to the menu and they were quick to explain and help with the new choices. The OG 5pc w/Ponko fries is and will always be my fave!!! More...

The chicken is delicious. They come in three flavors organically, hot and bbq. The hot isn't that over powering. But it does have a nice little lingering burn at the end. Their green beans are wonderful with a nice cream sauce and fried onions on top. Plus the ranch dressing is outstanding. More...

29 May 2019

The spicy chicken was delicious! I got it with fries and their special meso green beans. Didn't really care for the green beans (as others have said the sauce was a bit weird). What makes this place special is how cute the decor is. Super cute spot for a cheaper date night.The tip system needs work. When the employee turned the screen it was very confusing and not user friendly (I couldn't see the total when calculating my tip). But you do get to pay 1st so when you're done eating you can simply get up and leave.All in all... I'd be back for the chicken. More...

Found Ponko as they do Fooda pop up lunches in my office building with their staple chicken and tofu and it was always incredible! After months of enjoying the pop up decided to pop into the Chamblee location. Tried a Ponko hot dog with original sauce, fries and my go to potato salad. Except the potato salad they were all new items to try as they do not have these in the pop up. Just like the chicken and tofu, the things Ponko did to that hot dog took it to a whole new level. Tasty, great service, great atmosphere and pretty much perfect portion sizes. This place is beyond amazing and I can’t wait to be back. More...

Yummmyyyyyy. I love PONKO Chicken. They have a unique menu with a twist on things. It's a great spot for lunch, dinner, carry out, or even go study. They have daily specials on their food and drinks. I usually get the PONKO Chicken plate with their Ponko fries and sticky rice. The chicken is always on point and cooked to perfection. Never had an issue with the employees either. If you're thinking about checking it out I highly recommend it ! More...

When "Ponko" says "Literally the best chicken on the ENTIRE planet" they were not messing around. This place is authentic and amazing. We ordered To-Go, staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

I love getting their Basic Salad with PONKO or Island chicken, and their Walnut Cilantro dressing ... I really need to buy a bottle of that and yes, they sell bottles! Yummm. The salad is $7 and it's a decent size too - and by the way if you order the salad "to go", it'll look small in the Chinese take-out box but trust me, they've compressed a lot of salad in that little container. At my last visit, i decided to try the "Island" chicken which is really Jerk chicken - whoa even more tasty than Ponko! My friends still prefer the Ponko but I'm a big fan of the Jerk. Oh and I love their space too, their light fixtures, even the order number blocks. Their sides are good - fries, sweet potato fries, potato salad. Not a fan of their Miso Sesame Green Beans though ($5) ... menu description was enticing but taste was super bland. Maybe tempura or fried would help? Next time I'd like to try their popsicles.FYI the servers will remove your trays after you're done :) More...

Ponko is slowly, but surely becoming one of my favorites. Being a lover of both American food and Asian food, this spot allows me to satisfy both worlds! The times that I've eaten here I've kept it pretty basic with getting the original tenders, rice, and fries and every time they are fresh and seasoned well! The parking here is great, they have a nice bar and restaurant setting and outdoor seating is available as well (pets welcomed). All of Atlanta deserves to know about Ponko and try it out! More...

Can't believe I waited so long to try this place. I love the crispy tenders in the original sauce. I have ordered to go twice and some how the ranch is always left out sadly. But that doesn't diminish my love and cravings for this place. I order from here when I want Asian cuisine and French fries. It's such a good combo. I have gotten rice and salad as my second side and both are good. Rice and fries always seems too heavy for me though so the salad with the sesame dressing is my go to now. Also huge portions which I love to save a few tenders for later. More...

Pretty, darn good casual Japanese fried chicken joint.The decor is industrial and there's even a bar!You order at the counter and they bring it out to your table. Everything here kind of reminds me of Tin Drum. It's like a hip-fusion Asian atmosphere.I ended up getting the lighter portion of the salad bowl with the classic Ponko chicken which ended up being plenty of food for me. No leftovers though. Chicken was well seasoned and juicy. Salad was fresh enough. Definitely could have used more toppings to make it more interesting like tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, etc.My lunch partner also enjoyed his rice bowl with the Ponko chicken.Would recommend for anyone in the area who's looking for a quick meal and craving some lightly fried chicken tenders.

I was recommended this place and I go now all the time! The best is when they have the tacos! The food is amazing, but I do suggest ordering online first. One of Atlanta's best kept secrets is becoming exposed and because everyone loves this place, the line can get extensive. More...

Can't believe I've lived by this place for this long and have never given it a try. Finally went today not knowing what to expect and man was I surprised. Was going to get the sandwich but asked the gentleman at the register what he recommended and he said the infamous chicken finger plate with the two sides. I agreed. It was amazing! I got two spicy and three original and can't tell which one I like more because they were both so good. Oh and the sweet peach almond tea was FANTASTIC! Not too sweet and wonderful flavor. I have to come back to try the red velvet cake cup! Will definitely be back! Thanks Ponko! More...

I hardly ever write reviews but had to leave one after I tried Ponko. The place is beautiful and the chicken is absolutely amazing. It tastes as if it’s infused with honey and is simply delicious. The sides were also incredible, especially the green beans with the fried onions on top. Incredibly friendly staff and top notch atmosphere. Will eat at Ponko often now that I’ve tried it. More...

Don't let the medical-office look fool you; there is a restaurant here with a Japanese twist on American chicken tenders. Tuesdays and Thursdays are $2 Ponko brews and Thursdays have tacos for 3/$9, providing their chicken tenders (or grilled) with original, spicy or barbeque sauce on top of tortillas.

Their grilled teriyaki chicken is wonderful, I love their sweet potato fries, and even their coleslaw is good. There's lots of their menu I haven't even tried yet but I can tell that it's going to be worth trying. It's a cool atmosphere also, obviously one already discovered but lots of interesting and varied people. Ponko Chicken has become one of my go-to places. More...
