Our visit to Po Folks was a trip down memory lane as we had dined at the chain so many times before. It is an older restaurant but don't let the interior get you down as the service and food we received was very hot and delicious. The restaurant was very busy the day we visited yet we did not wait long on service or refills. We will be returning as soon as we can. Thank you for a excellent visit!!!

We walked in as a family of 3. Two Adult and one child . The first thing I have noticed is that the restaurant look and set up seems old fashioned . The place lacks cleanliness especially the carpet. The food we got all was good , chix fried livers, fried green tomato, country fried steak and fried chix as well.
The food price is very affordable .
If you are a tourist in St. Petersburg I don t recommend you to go there , in the Gulf blvd much better options .

PoFolks has been in this location for years and is consistently a local favorite. The BEST fried chicken around served in a very family style, very friendly restaurant. PoFolks serves up other southern dishes as well with a large choice of sides from “down south”. The prices are extremely reasonable anyway but you can’t beat the all you can eat special on Sundays.

We went to PoFolks in Clearwater for dinner tonight. The service was very quick and the food was delicious. I had the crab cakes and my husband had smoked sausage. We both enjoyed our dinner and the server was very efficient. We might have to go again.
