5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2010

We love the fried chicken, catfish and country fried steak. Decor is nothing fancy but service has always been good and the food yummy

“The manager was not so friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2009

I went into this PoFolks and I thought that the manager, or at least I believe she was the manager, didn't seem very friendly. She seemed like she had an attitude. I wish I had gotten her name. The food is good at this restaurant, but I feel that the manager should be more pleasant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2008

This is a down to home country place with the worlds best fried chicken. There shrimp is outstanding also. Corn on cob, and apple pie with ice cream. All very very good. Bread sticks, cheese sticks are good. Not much here that is not good. Mom even says the Liver & Onions are good, I just can't go along with that.

“Good Fried Chicken/Stale Biscuit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2008

Atmosphere improved and it wasn't as cold as we expected.
Fried chicken was excellent, served piping hot, but the sides were luke warm and the biscuits were definitely stale. In retrospect, I should have asked them to deduct the cost of the biscuits from the check.
