Famous Dishes

Prime rib

While prime rib may be a staple on many menus across the nation, good prime rib can be hard to find. Enter Clark's Restaurant, a traditional, Southern-style establishment in Athens. In glowing customer reviews, it is rare to see a mention of Clark's that doesn't include the succulent prime rib.

Served only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, the 12-ounce prime rib is listed on the menu with a disclaimer of "while it lasts." This note is necessary considering how popular the dish is, and Clark's aims to ensure that every bite is as delicious as the last.
