If u want to eat out and get good southern food, K&K is the place to go. A little wait, but food is always very good. Glad that they are able to continue their food service to this community.

From the moment we walked in the door I felt my little eyes light up as they peeked around the friendly hostess that was there to greet us. What a cuuuute place I said to myself! Everything on the menu sounded so good I couldn't decide, so my boyfriend surprised me with the seafood combination platter for 2. OMG.. It... More

This is the best soul food restaurant I have ever visited. The Food, Service and atmosphere was EXCELLENT! !! I spent a lot of money in AC eating at "resort" restaurants but this was by far the best.

This restaurant serves authentic southern cooking. The grits were so good, I thought they cooked them south of the mason dixson line. It's clean and classy. Although it was packed, the wait staff was patient, and made us feel as though we were the only customers in the building.

This Southern Style Eatery had so many delicious choices it's hard to have just one go at the buffet. They had everything from sausage and eggs to jambalaya. They even had fried fish to order. The one drawback is that some trays took a while to be refilled and it created a line at those particular trays. The food is... More

The fried chicken wasn't greasy but had an exceptional crunch and taste. My boyfriend had the fried catfish and it was flakey and delicious. The only thing I wasn't a huge fan of were the sides. We had mac and cheese and mashed potatoes with gravy. The mac and cheese was a tad dry and mashed potatoes were a bit... More
