We were looking for something local and not a big chain restaurant. This was the place recommended during my searches online. I was not disappointed. The ribs here were amazing. The quality of the pork was unbelievable. The way it was cooked was jaw dropping. Such a delicious aroma of smoky goodness. Although we were only in Buffalo for a... More

Certainly one of the best BBQ I have ever had. The building itself might discourage you from giving it a try, but that would be a mistake. I had the chicken and ribs combo and they were both tender and smoky, just perfect. The black eyed peas were cooked with bacon and scrumptious. Great sweet potato cupcakes, too! Worth a... More

While in town to visit Niagara Falls our family was looking for a good spot to eat that would satisfy nine hungry people. We range in age from 10 to 72 years old. Seeing how we are all from the South we sure didn't expect to come to New York to find the best BBQ we'd ever eaten! Great menu,... More

Greg may have grown up in Kentucky where barbeque pork is king, but he was born in Texas where it's all about the beef brisket - and you can tell it at his "pit". My wife's pulled pork sandwich was very good, and she especially liked the rich and slightly vinegary taste of the black-eye peas because she doesn't like... More

Excellent all business BBQ. Looks a bit sketchy from the outside but do stop in and get the pork plate. You will not be disappointed!

I visited April 24, with two friends. Having never been there before, the tall BBQ sign helped us navigate to the correct location. Exiting the car, I could smell the hickory wood smoke. We found a booth and we promptly greeted by our server. She gave us time and and answered the many questions we had. It was tough to... More

Kentucky Greg's is near my home and so we eat there a lot when in the mood for BBQ. Kentucky Greg's food is very authentic, flavorful, and reasonably priced. The restaurant is informal and decorated with a "Blues" theme that also plays that style of music when dining inside. For a taste of something different and a real treat, try... More

The meal was awesome. Service was excellent and efficient, and the servers went outnof their way to help. Here you definitely get your money's worth. Everything tasted amazing, and even my son was gushing over his kids meal, saying it was the most amazing corn dog he's ever eaten, lol. A true hidden gem.

This is the second time I have eaten here and have not been disappointed with any of the sandwiches I have ordered. I had the BBQ pork sandwich Memphis style (coleslaw on top) with French fries, the portions are pretty big. I also ordered the velvet cupcake for dessert, it was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant if you like... More

Honest to goodness smoked meat and roadhouse food. Really enjoyed it! I had the beef sandwich, Mama had the Chicken Salad. The chicken breast salad will feed a small family.
