We live within a few minutes of the White Possum, so we've been ordering take-out for at least once a week for several months now. My husband is bedridden, and I am also very sick and disabled. When we order, we do a call in while my husband's evening caregiver is here so she can drive out to pick up... More

I work near Smithville but generally prefer to frequent restaurants closer to home. Yesterday I made an exception & got fried catfish dinners to go. They were ready quickly, the order was correct (queue the hallelujah chorus!) & the fish was plentiful & tasty with a light corn mill based breading. I will definitely order from the WP again (&...

We were in Smithville for the day, and wanted eat something other than the normal fast food choices. The wait was a little long, but well worth it.

Nice staff, and the food is pretty good. They have a hot bar (or a meat and 3), which is fast and good. They could use some more fresh veggies. Salads consist of lettuce, tomatoes, croutons and cheese. But other than that, it's a real nice place to visit!

Great place for lunch.This local place was a good value for Meat and three. Great prices. Fresh food clean facilities lots of parking. The only bad thing which is not bad It is so dark in there the decor needs to be lighter.

Excellent service and nice atmosphere for a restaurant in a smaller town. They're known for their hot bar which is much like meat and three choices but you may also order off the menu. I had catfish off the menu with two sides. Catfish was crispy / sides were good. I'll defintely return.
