I would go back just for the burgers, great service and resasonable prices. Many traditional Southern offerings.

I normally don't write reviews on chain restaurants but because Folks is quite regional in nature, I thought it might help folks unfamiliar with this franchise. This is definitely a family friendly restaurant. You wait to be seated by a hostess, and you are waited on by a server, which you can... read more

The quality of this restaurant (chain) has decreased consistently over the past few years. Went in on a week night, so absolutely not busy, and service was slow and painful. I ordered the vegetables-turnip greens, okra and baked beans. The only items edible was the fried okra. It was hot and had been freshly fried. The other items were just... More

We had the fried chicken with white peppered gravy and mac n' cheese with a peach muffin. My wife asked for an extra piece of bread (biscuit) and they charged us an extra 40 cents without telling us that their would be an additional charge. All other restaurants in this area will give you all the bread you want at... More

We went on Labor Day and there was hardly anyone there and the service was beyond slow. There seemed to be a tiff among the staff. The food was so bland. I had the veggie plate and the chicken and dumplings were okay, but the Mac n cheese and green beans were awful. Will not be back.

We had their fried chicken breasts with white gravy which was very good and tender. Their potato salad, mac n' cheese and fried green tomatoes were good.

Worst food ever. Service was terrible. They do not know the meaning of fresh cooked. This food tasted like frozen food that was heated up and not good quality frozen food either. If anyone has had good county cooking this it not anywhere close. The Meat would make you gag it was so bad. The country fried steak and meat... More

My husband and I visited folks at what would be considered peak time: lunch on a Sunday. Although they were clearly busy, Folk's did a great job providing the actual estimated time of wait for a table (unlike other restaurants who provide a time...only for that time to be doubled or tripled.) We were seated and ordered two beverages with... More
