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

Little-known outside Hopewell, we stumbled onto this place almost by accident. Our 2nd visit confirmed our 1st. It's SLAM-DUNK GOOD. It's even CLOSED on WEEKENDS, (INCONVENIENT) but it's less pricey than many, and the food is hard to beat for flavor. BBQ, and other American foods reign, and the vegetables are superb. SERVICE was even better than the food. ATMOSPHERE... More

Great tasting barbecue at great price. Where else can you get a great barbecue meal plus a drink for under $6? The atmosphere is not much but you can't beat the food.

This "Mom & Pop" is a "No hands down" winner in Hopewell. I visit a realitive a couple of time a year and this is the place she wants to go. In fact the ONLY place she wants to go for lunch OR dinner. I have to agree. It's not fancy, they don't take credit cards or checks, it's CASH... More

Great food friendly service. The waitresses I had in prior visits were always friendly. My husband and I went there quite often. Our food was always as we ordered, our waitress refilled our glasses with-out us asking. He had his usual 1/2 bbq chicken I had my small bbq plate. Our sides were plentiful portions bread and hush puppies hot... More

My wife and I love King's in Petersburg, however they were closed the week we were there and heard about K&L. The server was top notch. I would have liked to bottled her and taken her with us. She always made sure we had what we needed. The sides were very good. The BBQ had a little too much of... More

BBQ is dry. All of the sides (vegetables) tastes like they were just scooped out of a gallon tin can and he a ted up. The prices are very cheap and that is why its a popular local place to go. There are no good local resturants in Hopewell. You will have to I go to Chester or Colonial Heights.... More
