There is a great Po Folks on 34th St. in St. Petersburg, FL. Their fried chicken, pork chops, catfish and other items are excellent
We went to one in Sierra Vista, AZ a couple of years ago when I went out there for my daughters wedding. She was stationed there at the time doing additional training. It was never my favorite place, but it was ok. I know my ex loved their chicken and dumplings.
Yep, thats the one…The mason jars…
Is this the place that serves or served your drink in a Mason jar? If so, it’s the same place we used to eat breakfast at on the way down to the Outer Banks (or if we were going camping in Maryland or Virginia) when my daughter was little. I think the one we went to might’ve been in Seaford, Delaware, and it was right on Route 13 South. I thought it was a pleasant family place.
Unless they have improved the Buena Park store considerably, it wouldn’t be worth the trip. We used to go to PoFolks back here in Kentuckiana and enjoyed the catfish and gumbo and chicken too. The CFS was pretty good and made a great lunch special. Then we tried the SoCal store..Next to the 6 Flags Wax Museum and across from Medival Times, up the street from Knox’s. It was a disaster. The Teenie-bopper help acted like they were at McDonalds, and the portions were half that of the Mid-West menu. Quality and Quantity suffered greatly. We tried it twice (last in 2000) and gave up. I don’t believe the E-Town store is still in operation either. If it is let me know and we will do another Fort Knox run to check it out.
According to their website there is one in Elizabethtown, KY.
Don’t know if that’s close to you – if not – ROADTRIP!
Our San Diego locations all vanished about 12 years ago.
My Dad loved going there because it was the only place he could get okra for a sidedish. My boys loved watching the model train and playing those little peg-board games while we waited for dinner.
I think the southern-style comfort foods were a little too heavy for health-conscious Southern California. Although, they apparently still have a location in Buena Park – I may have to make a pilgrimage…
Wow, I miss Po Folks and there chicken. There used to be about 5 of them around me when I was growing up but the last one closed in around 1996. I know there are some more around the United States but I was wondering if there menu lives up to how it used to be. Has anyone experienced the food lately?
