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.

While doing buziness in Atlanta in the early 90's, I came across a Po Folks and returned many times because the fried chicken never dissappoints! While driving to pick up grandson at Tampa Int'l airport I noticed the exit sign had Po Folks on it. After researching it, I found it was part of the same chain from Atlanta. We... More

Stopped at the restaurant while traveling and was pleasantly surprised while at the restaurant. It is a lovely restaurant with a knotty pine walled interior. The food was good and reasonable. The wait staff was pleasant.

It is a chain restaurant, but a good value of a meal, especially a family meal. The chicken fingers are frozen bagged, but the catfish tenders are made on site. Its a simple place with a simple country-style menu. The service is fairly good and the surrounding are country hockey.
