Pretty good

Wonderful and friendly service in a family oriented establishment with lots of character. Only giving a 4 because the vinegar based barbecue sauce on the pork was inedible. Everything else (barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, ribs, hush puppies) was great, not to mention the price was... read more

Everyone sees to like this place but I have never fully been sold with it. The food is okay but nothing to write home about. I don't like that they only accept cash. No checks. No cards at all.

If you ever find yourself near K&L Barbecue do yourself a favor and stop to eat! The food is wonderful, the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is casual and fun. This was my first Carolina bbq experience and I'd go back in a heartbeat. We got minced bbq pork sandwiches that were heavenly along with the option of... More

Wonderful and friendly service in a family oriented establishment with lots of character. Only giving a 4 because the vinegar based barbecue sauce on the pork was inedible. Everything else (barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, ribs, hush puppies) was great, not to mention the price was incredible. Just expected more with it being the #1 place in hopewell.

Luck of the draw... we found this 'gem' while driving en route from Canada to Florida. It's everything a diner type eatery should be. Entertaining décor, reasonable prices, DELICIOUS meals, ample portions and warm and friendly staff. Our server, Bonnie, treated us like family and made us 'feel' like family. We left with an earnest resolve to drop in again... More

Just go. Go now! A comfy hometown place to eat and enjoy company of friends and family. The old school decor is amazing and the service is with a smile. We got the Ribs, BBQ plate, and Strawberry Shortcake for dessert. We left very satisfied.

This is our quick go to when we are in the mood for a home style meal. They are known for the BBQ but try to catch the chicken and dumplings on Thursdays. I also love the BBQ chicken with the fried green tomatoes. The prices can't be beat and the wait staff is always friendly.

Don't get me wrong, it's not bad. The BBQ, hush puppies, beans, etc etc are good. But they are the standard issue menu items at a hundred of these restaurants I have eaten in across the South. Service is friendly enough. But if you happen to go during a busy time, you will certainly be getting the minimum time from... More

I had their chicken tenders with fries, which were really good. Although, I do wish they gave more than three chicken tenders. My husband had their Pork BBQ sandwich and absolutely love it. It's a great place to eat with friends. It's more of a family run restaurant, and so, the food is fresh and true country cooking. Keep in... More
