I have to preface this by saying that I have not eaten at a Black eyed Pea in years which is probably why I was looking forward to this visit.

Service was great...prompt, courteous and helpful. The vegetables are very good. I would hope they would work on getting a better source of meats for their signature item of chicken fried steak. All in all, a pleasant visit and worth a quick trip occasionally. We know this restaurant can deliver...they just need to work on food quality and then they'll... More

Black Eyed Pea used to be one of my favorite restaurants. My family fights me on it every single time I suggest it. For a place I love, I'm willing to put up with a lot of "annoyances", but even I am so disgusted after tonight's meal, I really don't see myself ever subjecting my family to the Pea ever... More

They are trying, but being a basic foods kind of restaurant, they need to try harder. The prices are low and that may be the problem...I would rather pay more and have quality food than cheap food at cheap prices.

My boys and I used to LOVE coming here to eat lunch. Last three times (three strikes, you're out) we went the service was SO horrible. Staff sitting around talking or complaining and acting like your not even there. Food has also gone down hill. Portions are getting smaller and the all time favorites are not so favorite anymore.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Rockwall and I ate there often. I took a break to try out newer places and when I returned, it was hard to believe it was Black Eyed Pea!! I completely agree with other reviewers who say it isn't what it used to be. My most recent experience was a... More

My wife and I stopped at the Black Eyed Pea after a long day in Dallas. We were met by a very courteous hostess who made us feel welcome. Our waitress was equally courteous and friendly. When our food arrived quickly, we were pleased to find it quite tasty. All of this was close to closing time. We were able... More

This restaurant makes some of the best food, especially the veggies whether they are sides or the entire plate. Best meat loaf around. My hubby loves the pot roast. Plus the Thursday Chicken and Dumplings are to die for.

It is so unfortunate that the food quality in this chain has gone downhill so quickly since they closed so many locations...they didn't serve cornbread when we were there, just tasteless dinner rolls and those were late coming out (almost at the end of dinner). The cups needed refilling but didn't get it - I had to get up and... More
