Kentucky Greg's is a find. The ribs are perfectly smoked and beautifully tender with a good vein of smoke and ample crunch. The rub and the sauce combine to elevate the experience even further. My son was ecstatic; not an easy task. My wife had the chicken and it was equally amazing, firm yet succulent. We left with a little... More

This was my second visit to Kentucky Gregs. I have been fortunate to have had truly outstanding Barbeque a couple of times in my life - the other times have been good and bad. I've even had "beans that will change your life" in St Louis once - and they truly did! Unfortunately for Kentucky Greg's, I can't say anything... More

Never left a review on TripAdvisor before but this place deserves A+++ Food was amazing! The whole family loved it. Owner was extremely nice and offered us samples of the gumbo. I had already ordered the ribs or else I would have had a bowl. Also make sure to try the tangerine chess pie!

On a recent visit to the greater Depew area (Buffalo airport), I stopped in Kentucky Greg's. KG's is a small place about a mile from the BUF airport. Fine dining it is not,but a nice simple place for casual dining and great barbecue, it is. I stopped in by myself during the late afternoon (early dinner/late lunch). It doesn't matter,... More

I've had some good, and now I've had Kentucky Greg's. What a delight... I've been meaning to try this establishment for some time now. I enjoyed the Chicken & Rib combo with a side of potato salad and corn bread. The corn bread was perfect, not dry and warm & moist (get your mind out of the gutter...). The ribs... More

We've been to just about every BBQ joint in Erie County, and the only one we keep coming back to is Kentucky Greg's. They have the meatiest, most flavorful ribs, the most succulent chicken, and the most delicious sides, bar none, MUCH better than the Dinosaur, and cheaper as well, with plenty of free parking to boot! The portions are... More

A great BBQ meal at a fair and decent price. Nice atmosphere with good service and staff. Will not disappoint. If having a sandwich go Memphis style and enjoy. Also enjoy the Brunswick stew.
