We had heard about this place but had never been. When we went we were very pleased. It is in a great location, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly.

We were on our way home from Kerrville on IH 10 when we saw a sign for Welfare Texas. I asked everyone if they wanted to go to welfare for dinner. We all agreed and I saw a sign on the highway that said Po Po Restaurant at the next exit. We got off the highway and we traveled just... More

We had heard great reviews about the fried chicken. We were not disappointed!! Two of us had the fried chicken and three of us had burgers. Those that had the burgers loved them, and want to return to try the chicken! Our server was pleasant and attentive. The service was quick. The restaurant is decorated with plates from all over...

We were looking for a good, local place to stop for lunch while traveling along I-10. Don't let the 1 mile from the interstate sign scare you. Place has a collection of souvenir plates everywhere.

Went there as part of a large group for business. They were prepared for us. Ordered the fried frog legs, excellent. The onion rings and biscuits were excellent, too. We had fried mozzarella and shrimp appetizers. The fried mozzarella was round, different. Martinis were good, too. All in all, an excellent night out.

We had lunch here because we read a nice write up in the Texas Highway Mag. It was 1:30pm when we sat down. The fried shrimp was soggy and not crisp. The hush puppies were great, they were the best thing on my plate. Service was good.

Our server and the busboy were the sweetest and most polite people. The fried shrimp was very good as were the grilled or roasted vegetables, baked potatoes and biscuits. The broccoli was over cooked but not bad. There was very little choice around here on a Monday night and it was a pleasant experience going to Popo's.

This is some of the most awful food I've ever had and WAY overpriced for what it is. My husband had what they called a chicken fried ribeye steak. We weren't sure what it was. The flattened out, paper-thin meat had no taste and there was a ton of breading on it so it looked like it was a huge... More
