    Re: Po' Folks

    Po'Folks is a great restaurant. I think their fried chicken is on par with or better than Knott's.

    Also, a good southern-themed restaurant is Johnny Reb's. There's one in Bellflower and in Orange. Great food at great prices.

    Both restaurants are on my list of favorites.

    There's also a Johnny Reb's in Victorville (go figure). It's in an out of the way and not so great part of town. I've never been there. Actually, I'm surprised that it stays in business and/or hasn't moved closer to the I15 (restaurant row area).

    Wow. I had no idea there were any still open! There was one in Columbus, but it closed down in the mid-80s. I can't even really remember what the food was like, really, but we ate there all the time until they closed...

    Re: Po' Folks

    I remember in the mid 90s when all the Po' Folks in the south east had to change their name to 'Foks because they thought the name was offensive...

    I ate there once like 15 years ago and got sick, so I've never been back. If you're inside Knott's then Johnny Rocket's is the best if it's not too crowded, otherwise TGI Friday's or Claim Jumper are even better!

    Re: Po' Folks

    Here is my little experience at that restaurant.

    We were waiting outside the restaurant when about 6 cop cars stopped right in front of the restaurant. The man they were chasing came out of the car with a gun pointed at a child he was holding. The cops told us all to duck down. I ducked under a bench. It was one of the craziest moments of my life. But the food is wonderful.

    Re: Po' Folks

    Had dinner last night at Po' Folks, had the Famous Combo, and the ribs were AWESOME, the chicken and Chicken Fried Steak were also great!!!

    But the ribs, something you would expect to spend 3 times the amount on, and it was just "part" of the combo..... Can't go wrong at this place!!!!!

    Re: Po' Folks

    I love Po Folks because it's the only place I know of (in my orbit) that sells black eyed peas... and they're delicious! We used to have one in San Diego, but it's long gone now. Is there one near Disneyland, or just Knotts?

    Yes locals eat there. We live close enough to walk. Breakfasts are the best.

    Re: Po' Folks

    While in college I worked at Disney and had an AP to Knotts... couple friends worked at Knotts and had Disney AP's. When we skipped class we usually had breakfast at Po Folks. Now, years later, I enjoy taking my kids to Po Folks... and the "kids meal" even has HUGE portions! When you order, order small, because they come at you with a lot of food.

    For anyone in the Oceanside/SD area that likes Mexican food I would also have to recommend Colima's... they have one by the pier in Oceanside and one outside the gates of Miramar Air Base. Same story, virtual hole-in-the-wall that you would drive right past but great food and really cheap prices.

    Re: Po' Folks

    WOW!!! That brings back memories. More then ten years ago Po'Folks changed its name to Folks before the 1996 Olympics (out here where the chain was based). I think the Po'Folks you are talking about is one of the restaurants that did not change the name and split off from the chain that is now Folks Southern Kitchen. Southern comfort food at its finest and best! My favorite restaurant. I used to go there every birthday when I was a kid. Every place has their own goofy Birthday song and they sang to me a Birthday song to the tune of "Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah." Their Mississippi Mudd Pie was heaven on pie crust! Mmmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all! LOL

    Got a question...a dumb one...but a question nonetheless...Since this is Southern Comfort food...do they go all the way and offer Sweet Tea?

    Re: Po' Folks

    My little ones always have a hard time eating there because they are always patiently waiting for the model train to make it's rounds. They're 5,4, and 2.5 and there is always a tremendous cheer when they see it. The food portions are HUGE, even for the kid's meals... they try to finish but never quite make it.

    I also love the peg game they leave on the table.
