Similar in quality to KFC but a little better. Amazing waitstaff, super fast service, literally 4 minutes from sitting to eating and everything was steaming, hadn't been sitting under heat lamps. Blackberry cobbler to die for, ate myself into coma.

Nothing special. Food OK. Service OK. Expected more got less. Catfish farmed raised. Not good! Would not recommend.

Its ok but the food is just average. They do have good fried chicken but I try not to eat much fried foods. I like their greens!

This is one of the few original PoFolks restaurants left, most have changed to Folks restaurants due to political correctness according to our server. Had to have some fried chicken livers with fried okra, blackeye peas and cornbread. Terry had the fried pork chops with...More

It's unfair to blame a place for not living up to my expectations, but that's what I'm doing. People have been telling me for a long time that this is the place I needed to go for the best fried chicken and that I won't...More
