Based on recommendation, we arrived to PoFolks around 5PM on Sunday for dinner. we had a short wait of 10-15 minutes. The place was packed and I know why! Possibly the best homestyle food I have ever had in a restaurant! For the best southern style fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, turnip greens, and hush puppies go to PoFolks.... More

This is a popular place because the food is great: altogether no-frills Southern with the best fried chicken you can get and home-style veggies, hush puppies, etc. This is low price, hearty, and absolutely satisfying. If you need atmosphere, this isn't the place. If you want excellent Southern food, this is THE place.

We went for lunch. I had the on the bone cat fish and hubby had chopped steak. The protiens were great and cooked to perfection. What lacked was things like beans, collard greens, which were not cooked from scratch but are from a can. The ice tea tasted like the water used came from the bottom of a barrel. They... More

Sunday is Fried Chicken day at Po Folks. Ask for the Sunday special for all you can eat fried chicken. The chicken flows out from the kitchen like water off Niagara Falls. The chicken is fresh with great sides.
