The slogan written on the door is, "So good, it'll make you slap yo mama." Well ok then...I am the type of person who usually finishes off everything that is put in front of me. Well OK, I finished the chicken fried steak too, but it did take some doing. Po Melvins serves very good home style cooking at very good prices. If the chicken fried steak were any bigger, it would have needed side boards to keep it on the plate. And it was a hand dipped one, not one of those box jobs you'll find at other places. I liked being able to choose which yummy veggies to eat. Note--there are five to six of the vegetables that have an asterisk next to them with the footnote that they are seasoned with pork. The prices are less than you would get at a Cracker Barrel or Black Eyed Pea and the food just tastes better. The restaurant itself doesn't look like much from either the outside or inside, but this is just what I would say is Family owned vs. Corporate carbon copy dining. I would think that this place would be great for either lunch or family dining in the evening.
