Great Concept and Dining Experience

A very good meal---attentive service, good wine/beer selections, nice entrees and sides. The story behind what the owners of this restaurant are trying to do, coupled with service and food quality, gives it five stars in my book.

We were traveling back home & got stuck in Charlotte because of the snow and ice on I-77. My son looked up things to do and places to eat and this restaurant was his choice. We ate out on the patio so I really don't know what the interior looked like. The food was very good and we enjoyed it... More

Absolutely one of my favorite places to go and when I have family or company coming in from out of town this is one of the dining spot I often take them to. I have never had an entrée there that I did not like. One of my favorites is their fried chicken-delicious, juicy on the inside with a crispy... More

The food and the service at the King's Kitchen is stellar! You will definitely want to go back once you've eaten there! Don't miss out on the corn bread and deviled eggs!

I have so many wonderful things to say about the Kings Kitchen. First off, I respect the mission of this non-profit restaurant and what they give back to the community. Angela, was our waitress & she was fantastic as well as the other staff. My husband had the duck special and I had the shrimp & grits which was delicious.... More

I love King's Kitchen for many reasons. The food is excellent, the prices very reasonable, and their mission is admirable. How many not-for-profit restaurants do you know of? they employ the unemployable and train them in every aspect of the restaurant business... and all the profits are used to feed the needy in our community and to continue providing job...
