If you're a big BBQ fanatic like me, this isn't the place for you. I had a BBQ pulled pork plate and the pork didn't have any smokey flavor and was dry. Also, the carpet smelled of mildew. I will not return there. It wasn't all bad, the baked beans there were fantastic and the prices are very cheap.

I was hoping I would find a southern barbecue joint before I left Virginia and boy did I. The food could have been the best I ever ate, the atmosphere and staff prove that southern hospitality is still true to form. Ribs were so tinder and flavorful I couldn't describe even if I were a poet. Cash only..ATM inside

Stopped by here for an authentic bar b q and was a little disappointed. The beef plate was dry and needed a lot of added sauce. The chicken 1/4 was good. The sides of cole slaw fried green tomatoes and mashed potatoes were average at best. The price is right and the service was very friendly but I would not... More

My family and I have eaten here dozens of time over the years. The kind of place you'll "return to and return to", when you experience what's there - excellent hot food, a good price for what you get, food well prepared and seasoned, and in a clean atmosphere with waitresses who "quickly" do their jobs, and who are very...

My family loves going to K & L. We all have a lot of fun looking at the decor. They have homemade biscuits and real mashed potatoes. This is a family style place and they do not take credit cards, cash only.

We eat here often. The food is good the service is quick and the price is right. The only negative is they do not take charge.

I went into this restaurant as to what my waitress called a southern bbq virgin and I emerged as a southern bbq women with sweet tea in my veins and sauce on my face. The food here was excellent the atmosphere was of old friends getting together and new friends being welcomed with open arms. The feel of this quaint... More

This restaurant serves it's meals to the $5.00 and under crowd. The owner rarely smiles, if you go in around seven at nite, get ready for the un-nerving sound of the vacuum cleaners to go along with your dinner all the way thru dessert. The restaurant closes at eight....that means, according to the owner, he want to be out of... More

This is the meeting place of the locals. The food is homemade and delicious. The service is fast and oh so friendly. Lots of people on a short lunch brake eat here as they are fast to get what you order. Only open Monday - Friday. I am sure the staff loves this. The best part is the price just... More
