“Lived up to thy name”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Poor mans cracker barrell. Really cheap food. Real bang for your buck. Need more places like this nationwide. Place is called Po Folks for a reason. Thought it lived up to their name. Awesome!

“Great southern eating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Stopped at this place by chance while on vacation just trying to get away from the craziness of of the Destin restaurants during spring break. The place doesn't look like much to brag about, but if you want good, homestyle southern cooking then this is the place to go! Fried green tomatos were delish, fried chicken was the best I've ever had! My husband and mother both had the country fried steak and enjoyed it. Kids eat for free on Wednesdays which was great since we had 3 with us (they enjoyed their meals too). Service was good and very attentive. We would definately go back!

“Still great chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

" I eat more chicken than any man ever seen" And I'm tellin ya , this is some of the best chicken I ever had. Strouds out of Kansas City is about the only other fried chicken that can compare to this. I thought they had closed these places. What a treat to still find one.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

Great tasting food. Best food we had eaten on our week long trip to Destin, Florida.
Nice, kind and caring waitress. Efficient. Seated right away without any waiting. The food was downhome southern cooking with the best flavor. Hot and delicious. Family restaurant style and the cost was a great value.
