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.

This is the place to go for decent comfort food. Their fried chicken portions are juicy and large. The accompanying sides like collard greens and cornbread give it authenticity. Service is prompt . Place is usually very busy but wait times are very low.

We happened upon an ad for this place, and were surprised to see it because we thought that PoFolks went out of business decades ago. My wife of 30+ years and I went to the PoFolks in Dayton, OH on our second-ever date, and that location is long gone. So when we saw the ad--including a coupon for 50% off... More
