The service is great. Food very prompt. Loved the ribs and chicken. Had okra and coleslaw that was very tasty. The only down side was the bread. It was charred on the grill and it ruined the toast completely. Very bad flavor. Choose the cornbread instead.

Cozy with great blues atmosphere serving authentic, mouth watering BBQ. What could be better? The brisket is one of the best I've ever had and the sides are delicious. We have been there many times over the past few years. Prices are not bad. Beer selection could be expanded a bit , but overall, we love it there.

My review has already been written as we feel the others experienced the same excellent service and food that they did. Taken there by friends we thought about moving so we could eat there regularly. So the BBQ was great but so were the cupcakes! I usually don't like cupcakes but these were excellent; the cake and the frostings. Get... More

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
