This time I had ordered food (3 meals) by phone to pick up. Everything was ready when I arrived and everything I requested was there. Minor snag was when I got to my destination to share th meal.

I love this restaurant, we eat here every time we visit the area. It was my mom my husband and myself and I was not disappointed. I had my favorite, fried chicken.

The chicken is just delicious. My husband and I love the liver so much. The whole family loves the parmesan bread. The cowboys and cowgirls wait on us with big smiles on their faces. The food is affordable.

But, if you're looking for Southern-style home cooked comfort food, this is the place to go! Other contributors have stated that foods are fried and heavy; no one will ever accuse Po' Folks of...

I like certain meals that are not fried. The fried food can be heavy. Great service; quick and efficient with a smile.

My fish and chips lunch special was the perfect amount. Not over fried a pleasant surprise. My husband had the lunch portion of chicken and dumplings with a side of turnip greens.... More
