Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Only been here once but it was at least 10 yrs ago or more!
There were outside blinds covering the large windows, thought it was closed even with a lot of cars in parking lot. Had a handmade open sign on door. It was so run down inside, we almost didn’t stay. Really in need of an update throughout the place. Every table we past on our long walk thru the dining room with the hostess, seemed to be eating Mexican food.
A guy walked around placed nice sized baskets of warm tortilla chips and small container of salsa on your table as you were seated. Chips were good, salsa plain, so so taste. I ordered a Mexican plate, it looked good but was very disappointed in the flavor throughout. My husband said his beef fajita was dry. The 3.00 margaritas were a nice treat and nice size! The whole staff was polite and friendly and attentive but sorry, the food was not good. Staff all in jeans, tshirts, no uniforms. Very laid back.

We went to POETS to celebrate a special occasion because it is always my first choice. We order half and half fajitas or cheese enchiladas. The chips and salsa arrives immediately after being seated. An additional side salad tops it for. Although it is so busy that the food sometimes takes a while, it is well worth any wait.

It's always good. You never really are disappointed for the most part. The only thing that I wished... was sausage in the gravy with the chicken fried steak. I heard for breakfast, they put the sausage in. You get plenty of food for the cost. People are nice... old place, but very homey and popular

THE best Chicken Fried Steak and Battered Fries I have ever tasted in a long, long time. This is a very nice, local-feel, friendly place to hang out and have a good, old-fashioned tasty meal for a great price. The staff is amazing and service great -- everyone seems HAPPY to be working there, which is not always something one senses in a lot of places!

For local eats, and great, fun atmosphere or for family or parties, this is a fantastic place to eat!
