Really, really good Barbeque buffet

My family and all. My friends love Kelly's! Great for when you are I the mood for Barbeque or country cooking. They have a ton of sides and at least three different meats on the buffet. Kelly's is open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. (It gets crowded around 6:00 pm.) They only... read more

I've passed by Kelly's many times in the past but never took the opportunity to try them until a business associated suggested having lunch there. Billed as a Barbeque joint, but it is more of a mixed all you can eat buffet, mostly vegetables, casseroles, salad fixings, deserts, with fried & baked chicken, pulled pork and ribs - all pretty...

This is what I was expecting from southern BBQ, brisket s tender and the pull pork delicious. I order take out and when I got there the restaurant was inviting and clean. Staff was happy to please me with my order. I will definitely go back.

I live in Wisconsin with family in the area. We visit Kelly's every time we're in the area. We've even brought frozen barbeque brought up to us. The mustard sauce is amazing. I would put it on everything if I could. They offer a variety of sides and desserts on the buffet. Nice, casual barbeque buffet. If only this could... More

Very friendly staff! Buffet style (all you can eat) BBQ and southern food. Lots of menu options to eat until your gut is busting. Average BBQ for the area, nothing to blow you away, but good stuff. This is great place to feed the entire family and not break the bank.

This is an all you can eat BBQ. The seating is at long rows of picnic tables. The selection of veg.s is very broad. They have several types of salads. They have a number of nice sweets for a final course. They have the typical BBQ meat selection - pulled pork and chicken. However, on Thursday they have a lightly... More

I can't believe we just found this restaurant! Driving a back road and saw a crowded parking lot and family was hungry. Not one single complaint, except they are only open Wed thru Saturday. For the price, which included everything, drinks and dessert too, I haven't had a better meal in the entire area. Just a really nice place with... More

There is nothing fancy about the place just good solid food. Meat options are shredded bbq, brisket, bbq and fried chicken. There are plenty of vegetable options from corn nuggets to beans to cheesy potatoes. The bacon Cole slaw is different and worth a try. Desserts are ok. Pie and cake seem store bought but are good. This place is... More

The building looks like...well, a Barbecue place. That's a good thing. It gives you the sense that you are going to an authentic southern Barbeque restaurant...and your senses would be correct. If you haven't been there, or haven't been there lately, you should clean up you act and get over there for dinner soon!
