Good BBQ

The outside isn't too impressive and the seating is limited inside but the waitress was quite friendly. The fried banana pepper rings were awesome. The ribs were really good. I like a smokey charcoal flavor but if you don't this isn't the place for you. The chicken was good in some areas... read more

Just 3 or 4 miles from the Buffalo Airport, we decided to grab lunch here before our flight. It was a pleasant change from the usual airport fare. Being from the South, we've sampled lots of BBQ over the years but Greg's was the best. An unusual find in that part of the world. Highly recommend.

I've lived about 5 minutes from this restaurant for 19 years, pass by it numerous time a week, and finally went in for dinner about a week ago. It was an hour before they closed so I was expecting to not have the greatest service or meal, l but boy was I wrong!!! The food was outstanding. It's a small,... More

We stop at Kentucky Greg's once a year on our drive out East with our family. We always make a point to stop at Kentucky Greg's. The BBQ is outstanding! We love the ribs, pulled pork and baked beans. His homemade sauces are excellent too. The restaurant has tons of character and great attentive service. We've met Greg the owner... More

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
