This is a good cafeteria with a good selection of food. Their crab cakes are good (they said they are fresh) as are their salmon cakes. Good choice of salads, desserts and vegetables and pleasant atmosphere. Really good yams here. Like all cafeteria food can be too salty. Line was sort of slow moving when we ate there but that...

This restaurant is great for variety (if you can stand the crowds and the salt). The food is well-prepared, generous, reasonably priced. The staff is usually very pleasant and helpful, especially the people manning the dining area. The only reason I can't rave about this place is the salt and oil -- good old-fashioned Southern cooking and not the best... More

I miss the old staff - suppose they've retired? The food is good and very well-priced. It's average cafeteria food and that's not a bad thing.

I used to visit frequently to order carry out when I wanted a non-fast food lunch or if I was too tired to cook a home-cooked dinner. My kids loved the chicken tenders kids meal with honey mustard sauce. I like their well-seasoned veggies and other sides. Carry-out often have a long wait though. For dine-in it gets busy too...

I am not a fan of K&W cafeteria.. It has no taste. They have raised there prices. You might as well go to golden corral. The food is better and cheaper.

K & W's have been around forever, and will hopefully be around for a long time to come. It's exactly what it says it is: a cafeteria. You get a tray and go down the line picking out what you want - fried chicken, collards, cornbread, any of the other countless things that might tempt you. The food is really... More

Kids can point to what they want to eat in the cafeteria line. Much simpler than showing a menu! Good basic food at modest price. Clean place with good service

Service was quick and attentive and location of restaurant was in a convenient location. Food was good but I was let down by the selection of salads. You pretty much had a choice of 7 layer salad or basic lettuce and onion salad :( Main entree selection had plenty of variety as did vegetables and desserts. Service was great at... More

Look, I know it is a cafeteria and I really didn't expect much ... and they delivered. The food is alright, not great, not horrible and definitely not healthy. However, it was hot, tasted alright and didn't make me sick. I think that that is about all I can really say about it. Oh, and it's not too expensive.
