I am from SC and my wife is from NC so we have some background on southern BBQ, more specifically, pulled pork. I recently stopped at Kings for their buffet and was not impressed. The pulled pork was not seasoned much at all and did not have any smoke flavor. The buffet had all the sides but was not as... More

I stopped into King's because some friends were also stopping there. I heard it was BBQ so was thinking Texas BBQ sandwiches. It was not. Although I'm from the North, my family is from the South, so growing up I had my share of southern style home-cooked meals. From my point of view, that includes too many things that are... More

We were weary traveling home from beaches. We did not want fast food or a restaurant experience taking hours off of our road time. We saw a sign for King's and what a lucky bet of luck we received. We made it for the buffet. I am a yankee and not much on southern foods and BBQ but, WOW what... More

I've lived in North Carolina most of my life and worked in politics, i.e., I've eaten A LOT of BBQ! King's is hands down the best for eastern NC-style BBQ. Its a little rustic but totally authentic. We've eaten the buffet, ordered off the menu and, most often, gotten their BBQ sandwiches "to go" while en route to the coast.... More

If you like pulled pork and southern cooking, this is a nice place to stop. Nothing fancy, just quick BBQ.

Having lived in North Carolina most of my life I've had barbeque at many different places. King's is now at the top of the my list. I had the buffet this past weekend consisting of BBQ, fried chicken, shrimp, brunswick stew, corn, green beans and hush puppies. Finished it off with pecan pie and plenty of tea. A must stop...
