We like Po Folks because they have a few specialties. One is the appetizer, fried green tomatoes! We try it order it every time. They do it so well. Also we enjoy beef liver. Can't even get it at grocery store lately, to make our own. So we order the Grilled Beef Liver with Onions. You can get a few... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. Elizabeth ordered black eyed peas with her meal. When the meal arrived she thought something was not right with the peas. I tasted them and we determined the peas had soured. The manager agreed and she went to the kitchen and "threw them out". Now, my wife and I cook at home... More

Love this place, good food and awesome service. It's a little run down and the inside just needs to be cleaned and renovated. With that aside, you get plenty of food & drink at a good value. Hate they did away with the senior menu.......

My wife and I were looking for a good home cooked meal, and we found it. Good clean family atmosphere where the prices are fair for the amount of food you get. Definitely would recommend to anyone who misses moms cooking.

Great B-B-Q meals, good price point value. This is a chain but the local place in Niceville takes additional pride in their restaurant. Good place to take the family, kids will enjoy selection.

I was pleasantly surprised to pass by this PO folks while looking for a pet food store. It was not as large as I was used to seeing and was not sure it was a real PO Folks until we were inside and saw the menu which had all my favorites. I love their pinto beans with raw onions. I... More

Po Folks has been around as a staple of country cooking for a long time. It left the area for a while, but opened back up here in Niceville a few years back under new management. The food quality overall has greatly improved. The seating is a bit on the cramped side for me, but with their pick-up service, there... More
