So as a child we would eat many Sunday lunches at Po'Folks with my parents friends from church. The location in my hometown closed 20 years ago and I hadn't eaten at one since. There were definitely changes over that time period (like the name and no syrup for the biscuits), but the food was really good. The prices were... More

We visited Folks for dinner during the week. We were seated promptly and attended to right away. Our booth was near the kitchen so I could see the door that led to it. The area seemed to need a little attention as did our booths. Folks has a tradition of serving good country cooking and this was held to that... More

Visited for late lunch. Waitress explained the menu. The Brunswick stew was full of flavour and the barbeque chicken was tasty and melted in the mouth. The brisket beef tasted on the fatty side. The peach cobbler was good. Very reasonably priced and a chance to sample local cuisine.

We had good food but they lost our order resulting in lousy service. We had their fried chicken breast and gravy with mac n' cheese and potato salad and a blueberry muffin. Everything was good but the long wait for our food. The manager did come by and apologized and took care of entire cost of our meal.

The quality of this restaurant (chain) has decreased consistently over the past few years. Went in on a week night, so absolutely not busy, and service was slow and painful. I ordered the vegetables-turnip greens, okra and baked beans. The only items edible was the fried okra. It was hot and had been freshly fried. The other items were just... More

I normally don't write reviews on chain restaurants but because Folks is quite regional in nature, I thought it might help folks unfamiliar with this franchise. This is definitely a family friendly restaurant. You wait to be seated by a hostess, and you are waited on by a server, which you can request on future visits. Ergo, tips are part... More

We had the fried chicken with white peppered gravy and mac n' cheese with a peach muffin. My wife asked for an extra piece of bread (biscuit) and they charged us an extra 40 cents without telling us that their would be an additional charge. All other restaurants in this area will give you all the bread you want at... More

We went on Labor Day and there was hardly anyone there and the service was beyond slow. There seemed to be a tiff among the staff. The food was so bland. I had the veggie plate and the chicken and dumplings were okay, but the Mac n cheese and green beans were awful. Will not be back.
