K&L Barbecue has great barbecue, ribs, barbecued chicken, grilled chicken, chicken livers, pork chops and many other items. Their fried chicken is some of the best around, it takes 20 minutes to cook, but it is worth the wait. Their staff is friendly and is ready to get you whatever you need quickly. The plate is full of food and... More

Ate here all the time, to go usually. It was an everyday place when I was pregnant. The prices are too good. Quality of the food is fantastic. I love it. I like having Teresa as a waitress

My wife and I stop in here at least once a week sometimes more often. The food is predictably good quick and inexpensive. I always see people I know (I am also a local business owner) having a good time enjoying good food in a pleasant atmosphere. Their desserts are worth saving room for if you can

K&L BBQ is a great dining location here in Hopewell They are opened only Mon-Fri and closed the weekends. The staff is always friendly. The food is very good and varies and not just BBQ. There pricing is very affordable and don't forget to save room for their many types of desserts.

Cowlings BBQ is the best in VA. When I want BBQ and don't want to drive, I head to K&L. Love their slaw and sweet tea.

If you love fruity sweet barbecue, this is a great place. I had 1/4 rack of ribs cooked to perfection with plenty of both kinds of the k & l barbecue sauce on the side to slather each bite in. Add in the biscuits, hush puppies, beans, and corn and I was too filled up to sample their desserts. Include... More

Just good country cooking! Friendly and efficient staff. I like the BBQ but one of my favorites is the fried chicken livers and the biscuits! A winter favorite is Chicken and dumplings on Thursdays! This is a favorite local restaurant so I eat here often, lunch or dinner, and pick up take out as well!

I enjoy eating here cause the food is always dependable. Nothing fancy just good and quick. I also enjoy running into old Hopewellians. They still don't take charge. So bring your cash or check.
