Was disappointed in all phases of this restaurant. Food was average, service okay. Thought I was getting catfish fillets but got the whole thing

Had the country fried chop, and fried chicken gizzards combo. It was really good. Potato salad was excellent Mustard greens were not up to this Southerner's taste, no flavor. My server Courtney, gave quick and excellent service. Country atmosphere. Good place to stop while you are traveling through Marianna.

This place is one of the best restaurants we stopped at after being on the road for many hours. Nothing fancy but boy the food is great and the waitresses are very nice. We recommend Po Folks restaurant highly to anyone looking for a great meal and reasonably priced!

While traveling we spent the night in the motel nest door, and thought we would try it for dinner. I had the whole catfish dinner and it was super!

We enjoyed the local flavor of this restaurant. It wasn't the prettiest (or most spotless) place ever, but it was a local favorite . Lots of people knew each other. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. Food was good.

This used to be a shoneys because it looks as though pofolks just stuck their name on it and left it at that . Remodel or close that's my advice.

We remembered how good, what high quality ingredients they used in the 80's, and couldn't wait to stop. We actually planned our day around a stop to eat here. That was a mistake. We arrived around 6:30 central time. They were out of a lot of food items, though only a handful of tables were occupied. Working around the outages,... More

6 years ago we stopped in this restaurant and had a very very good meal, this year not so much. In fact we were unable to even get seated. After spending $20 for 4 beer's across the street at a Ruby Tuesday's we decided to walk across the street to relive the experience of a very good "family" restaurant. It... More

My husband and I travel I-10 often and in December, 2016 decided to give Po'Folks a try since we always jump off exit 142 for gas on our trips. Honestly, the gas station food probably would have been a better choice. I ordered the chicken and dumplings and have found more chicken in one of McDonald's chicken nuggets than my... More
