Best BBQ

First of all, the homemade potato chips are an outstanding appetizer! I had the Beef Brisket and it was the BEST I have ever had! My husband had the full rack of Beef ribs and he said he has never had better. The meal was outstanding and the service is always great, the staff at this restaurant... read more

Great ambiance and many TVs, beer choices, seating options, and food choices. Been going to K's for years and know the staff and owners fairly well. All very nice and accommodating.

I love my BBQ and this place does it right. The beef brisket is to die for. The sweet potato fries with the chipolte ranch is the perfect dipping sauce - spicy and creamy cool all in one. Lots of tv's and comfortable booths. Very laid back attitude. I love the food, but have difficulties finding something for my daughter... More

The TV set up is wonderful! So many games on one wall makes it so easy to watch sports here. Food is good too. Love the tri-tip and the brisket. Ask for extra sauce; it's yummy! The waitress suggested that my husband add mac and cheese to his sandwich and he loved it! Great place for a game day meal... More

Nice layout for a sports bar but don't go there for the food we tried the ribs and the pulled pork not good. The tater tots tasted like soap.

Husband and I were looking for a place to watch a game and have dinner, we were staying close by and knew of Kaminski's so we decided to go there. Great place to watch a game TV's everywhere and they are great about putting a game you want to watch close by. The food is great too! First try the... More

Came here on the recommendations of friends and this restaurant did not disappoint. The brisket was very good although just a tad on the dry side. The brisket sandwich topped with mac n cheese excellent and big enough to share. Nice selection of sauces to top the meats. The beans were out of this world...tangy, homemade...just perfect. Server was excellent... More

Had driven by this restaurant a couple of times, so we were in the area and tried it for lunch and we were not disappointed. The BBQ ribs and the pulled pork sandwich were very good and quite delicious. The side dishes were really tasty and good size portions. This restaurant is basically a sports bar with really good BBQ... More

Went with family of 4, including 2 small kids. The place is more like a bar on weekends than a restaurant, which is to be expected given the name - crazy karaoke crowd. The food was just ok, service was pretty good. Beer selection is great, and lots of options for those not craving bbq.

We met at this sports bar to catch up with friends. I was so relieved the menu was not your typical sports bar fare, by any means. There was everything from prime rib to tacos. Reasonably priced, too. They have a good daily special menu as well.
