  • Po' Folks

    We've enjoyed Po' Folks restaurant the past two years during our Thanksgiving trip to the Resort.

    We spend the day after T-Day at Knott's, then have dinner there.

    Huge portions and tastey meals. A lot of fried stuff. Great prices!

    Do "locals" eat there too, or just us "tourists"?

    Lisa and I ate there last Saturday night.

    We go once in awhile, alas, there are so many good choices in the area.

    At the resort, Johnny Rockets, T.G.I.Friday's, Amber Waves, Ghost Town Grill and of course, Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant.

    Just off property, Fatburger and Claim Jumper, then Fuddruckers and Po' Folks father up Beach.

      Is Po'Folks the one with the magicians and ribs and balloon animal people going around to tables? Right across from Knotts?

      If so, we went there for my daughter's fifth bday dinner and it was a blast.

            Yeah, if we lived local, we'd be there quite often too!

            Thanks!

              We love Mrs. Knotts Chicken Dinner restaurant. Haven't been to Po Folks, but, DO highly recommend the chicken at Knotts. You don't have to go to the park (Inside anyway) to get to it.

                Yeah, three years ago, during our day trip to Knott's, we had dinner there (and numerous times before for the past 30 years or so).

                Since it was the day after T-Day, they still had the T-Day placemat menu's on the tables. Looks like they had a nice spread there for T-Day dinner.

                One time while visiting Knott's, we ordered a box of their chicken to go. We took it back to the DL Hotel to enjoy it.

                Finger lickin' good! (or is that the slogan for the other place??? hehe)

                  I love Mrs. Knott's even though I don't eat chicken on the bone, I haven't eaten there in forever

                  Po' Folks is really good too. We've had a few good meals there, they have awesome breakfasts

                    We had a great dinner at Po' Folks once again this past Friday.

                    A great dinner, huge portions and a total bill of under a hundred bucks (including a generous tip) for the six of us.

                    Tough to beat that!

                    Enjoy!

                      I've never been out there, but I'm wondering if this is the same Po Folks that we used to have where I live. Is it a chain? Southern theme? Drinks served in mason jars? If so, I loved that place as a kid. Ours closed years ago.

                            Thanks for this thread! Two years ago we stayed in Buena Park and passed by Po'Folks daily, but never stopped. We are heading there again in a month and staying in Buena Park again. We will be sure to stop in and have dinner! Mmmmm Buscuits and Gravy!

                                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...

                                        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...
