At Proof & Cooper, the Proof is in the Fried Chicken

Proof & Cooper offers a winning combo of tasty drinks, delicious food, and hill country ambiance. Tucked off of Hamilton Pool Road just past the Hill Country Galleria, you'll find this gem of a venue that also describes itself as a social club.

Inside you'll find a delicious menu featuring all kinds of southern home-cooked goodness. You'll find comfort food like frito pie and pulled pork, along with more traditional burgers and sandwiches. We opted for an order of fried chicken, and it truly blew my mind. This was some of the best fried chicken I've had, with more of a honey taste rather than spice which is my preference. I enjoyed it more than some other speciality chicken places around town. 

Comfort food galore! Fried chicken, hushpuppies and tater tots.

To top off our fried lunch, we had a side of traditional tater tots and an order of hushpuppies. The nice part about the menu at Proof & Cooper is that you can dine inside or order your food picnic style and eat outside. With all the live music performances on the stage out back, you won't want to miss the pleasant outdoor atmosphere. Plus, there is plenty of space for kids to run around and many special events throughout the year.

Check the calendar for live music and other special events.

Let's not forget the drinks. Proof & Cooper also prides itself on an impressive bar menu including craft beers, specialty cocktails, and even a members-only whiskey library. I know I've already raved about the chicken, but my Moscow Mule was also seriously one of the best I've had - perfectly refreshing and not too much bite.

Check out the website for weekly specials on burgers, tacos and chicken fried steak among others. You'll also find plenty of info about upcoming events and performances, private event space, and even Supper Club. 

Near or far, Proof & Cooper is worth the drive. It's one of those places that makes me feel lucky to live in Austin.
