Still GREAT! And more plates!

We've been stopping here for years to and from San Antonio on I-10, and our meals have been consistently satisfying. Good home cooking, fresh vegetables including 'sure 'nuff' mashed potatoes and real steamed spinach. Excellent hamburger steak w/ grilled onions. You know it's going to be good... read more

Iv'e been eating at Po Po's for over 20 years and we stopped in the other day and it was not good. I had heard that it had gone down hill and at peak hours when there used to be hundreds of people there were 10 people and over 60 open chairs! The specials went away which was one of... More

We live down the Waing-Welfare Rd. and had not been to PoPos in about five-six years. A bad past experience...anyways. Friends asked us to go last week and got the ribeye, overcooked and a $40.00 charge, my friends oyster main dish,no better. With a couple drinks...well over 200 bucks for the four of us...well, and the tip for average service.... More

About 15 minutes east of Comfort on hwy 10, in the middle of nowhere. Get there early. When you walk in the first thing you see is, the walls are covered with plates. Food is great home cooking and not expensive. Family friendly.

Since nothing else is open on Monday, it's worth the drive to see the plates and the history of the building

Used to be the go-to place for great home cooked food, however recently, the portions have become MUCH smaller and the prices have become MUCH higher. Food quality seems to have suffered a bit as well. Im not sure if the place is under new ownership or what is going on, but something needs to change.

We thoroughly enjoyed our early dinner yesterday, 5-9-2015. This was probably our fifth or sixth visit to Po Po's as we were heading home to San Antonio. I had the "Dinner Special" which included a perfectly cooked and juicy filet mignon wrapped in bacon, huge baked potato and, very honestly, the best prepared broccoli I have had. My husband was...

Poor service by a poorly trained staff detracted from good food. Under cooked steak, missing vegetables, refills of wine and water ignored, and clear my guest's plate before I was finished was rude.
