Amazing Southern hospitality and BBQ! We arrived at Po’s for the first stop of our annual motorcycling trip, this time with the family! We were warmly greeted and served as part of Edwin’s family Son had chicken tenders and Mac and cheese Husband had pulled...pork with collard greens and potato salad I had the moistest brisket ever and slaw and potato salad. I licked the platter clean If you are in Front Royal for the beginning of Skyline you should definitely drop in- but make sure it’s on the weekends- they’re only open Friday- Sunday Thanks to everyone at Po’s for a fabulous start to our trip 🥰More

We would have given a solid 5 star review if we could have tasted the meat. We can only assume that it is just as delicious as the sides, however, they literally saturate all of the meat in bbq sauce. We didn't look in the...container until we got home and we assumed that any sauce would be on the side. I was crushed since I was so much looking forward to tasting the brisket in its authentic form. The beans and the greens are fantastic. The Mac-n-cheese has a great texture but not a lot of flavor. We will definitely go back but next time will ask for no sauce....if possible. The meat was incredibly tender and the rib meat fell off the bone. Can't wait to give them another try.More

Ate lunch here recently and it was delicious. The various dishes looked out of a magazine. Nice historic parting Front Royal. Prices were high so this could be for special occasion.

We were in Front Royal for a weekend get away. We ordered online for curbside pickup. We order late afternoon on a Friday and the food was ready 10 minutes before our text message said it would be! The pork bbq was so tasty! Jalapeno...pepper seeds sprinkled on top added some zing. The corn bread was phenomenal! My husband and daughter enjoyed trying frog legs for the first time. They really liked them and the dipping sauce they were served with was so good. I dipped my fries in that. So great!More

We were meeting family in Front Royal and they suggested we meet for lunch at Po' Greens for Barbecue. I have to admit we were not impressed when we pulled up. However the smells from the smoker outside lured us in. It is small and...seating is limited but food is not short on flavor. It was fabulous. The staff and owners were very friendly and welcoming and went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed. We all had something different and there were definitely no complaints. The ribs and chicken were fall off the bone delicious. Servings were generous and the cornbread was the best I ever had. I agree with another review that "Parking is the greatest limitation to this becoming an experience enjoyed by more. The food deserves a better location." If you find yourself in Front Royal or just want to take a country drive, make sure to stop by and try it out. I would be shocked if you found this disappointing. We are over 40 miles away and planning our next visit.More

We were in Front Royal on a short business trip and were looking for a new place to try. We found this on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. It was Fish Fry Friday! I had the oyster po boy and my husband had...brisket. They food was delicious with big, fat oysters and freshly cooked brisket. The cooker is literally outside the front door. The cornbread was just out of the oven. The staff was friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you love southern cooking, good food, and a welcoming environment.More

This is a small storefront place on the corner of North Royal and 12th in Front Royal. The smoker sits right outside and provides a very pleasant odor as you arrive. Brisket dinner provided several large strips of meat with no noticeable fat on any....The smoke level was very tasty but not overpowering and a generous but not too much pour of sauce was a great compliment. The sauce has a nice tang, not overly spicy or sweet and good consistency. Oyster Po’ Boy was packed with lightly fried plump oysters, lettuce, tomato, tartar sauce and slaw and could barely be picked up for all that the very fresh bread contained. The slaw is chopped very fine, not watery and includes carrots which give a nice sweetness. Collards are another good side and even better with a splash of vinegar and Texas Pete. Cornbread we had had just come out of the oven (we arrived when they opened at noon) and was perfect consistency and not too sweet. The chef and hostess were extremely friendly and helpful. This is a gem you should try.More
