Excellent Barbecue

We ordered the feast for 2 and it would have been a feast for 4. We have an entire meal of left overs. Fantastic ribs, smoked turkey, sliced beef and Pork as well as very good chicken quarter. Friendly waitress. Great Service. Priced right. Highly recomend

We walked in around 7pm on Sunday night, dining room was slow. A hostess seated us immediately and took our beverage orders. No drinks arrived until our server asked how we were doing. After our food arrived, all was good. We never saw a refill on our tea, though. I can appreciate the home grown atmosphere, but I should not... More

This is a reasonably - priced, no frills local restaurant that just serves good food. Many of the wait-staff have been with Kay for years and are well-trained. Kay has been a local resident for many years, well before she got into the restaurant business, which was also many years ago. She personally knows most of her customers and takes... More

Miss Kay serves up an excellent meal with great waitresses! The atmosphere is cozy. Myself and 3 or 4 of my friends have been meeting there on Wednesdays for several years now. Typically, I am not a BBQ person, but I definitely eat there. They have a great selection of foods there too!

The spare ribs were great and the Brunswick stew was awesome! Very tasty, although the prices were a bit higher than I expected. I'd go there again for sure.

I purchased 4 take out lunches today. The chef salads were very nice and most generous. The sliced pork sandwiches were pitiful. I ordered 2 "regular" size sandwiches. There was not enough meat to cover the very small bun. They looked like a kiddy menu serving. I was really disappointed.

Pulled pork had a real vinegar bite. Tasty, but I like vinegar. Cole slaw very tart but excellent. Beans are molasses based so sweet. St Louis ribs were tender and tasty. Seems like a popular local lunch place - we stopped there on the way South. Service was very good.
