My wife the non meat eater would not share her ribs

Very good ribs and welcoming staff. We like to drop in to Kentucky Greg's once in a while when we are visiting the Buffalo area. There are a lot of good food choices in this area and in our opinion Kentucky Greg's is one of the best. While the setting may be plain, the ribs are very good, with... read more

We had another great meal at Kentucky Greg's Hickory Pit. We've been going there for years and have yet to have a bad meal or experience. As the name implies they feature good old BBQ. This time we both went with the pulled pork sandwiches with the baked beans and as an extra side $$ the fried okra. Well worth... More

This place was great and we saw why it got such good reviews. Greg was manning the cash register and after a 15 minute wait, we got a table and had great food. A companion had the catfish, another a 1/2 rack of ribs and I had a pulled pork sandwich. Delicious! Great atmosphere, service and price.

DE-LISH-US! Very casual (plastic table cloths) but very friendly & relaxed. A group of 8 of us from Canada went on Saturday night. Great service & our waitress put up with tons of questions & bantering. Everyone of us loved everything we had - and that uncommon statement says it all. Deep fried peppers were a surprising hit! All the... More

I have never had a bad meal here! Love the gumbo with Texas toast, I get it every time, sometimes just for a take out order. I have gone there with my boyfriend numerous times and he likes it just as much as I do. They do carry beer which is great, I think even Corona and Corona light! Easy... More

Great BBQ joint. Hickory smoked meats that will satisfy any Barbecue food lover. It's a tiny dine in place, leg room sucks, but the food is the focus, and that's their strong point. Their BBQ chicken and pulled pork, in my opinion are the best there. There ribs are spareribs so don't expect Baby Back Ribs. I don't hate spare... More

My daughter and I stopped by for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The building looks quite small but when we entered, we were surprised how homey it felt. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and it was very good although it could have used just a bit more BBQ Sauce. The one thing that made this sandwich unique is that... More
