We went here at the recommendation of our inn keeper. As u walk in door, u immediately notice all of the negative signs posted: "shut the door, so I don't have to tell u to" "keep ur kids off the counters" "no samples of ice cream-it cost too much." All those rules are fine, but when u see so many... More

We ate lunch at the Kin Folks restaurant. The food was very good and we will return. We also had ice cream there one evening while listening to music nearby.

Pleasant atmosphere combined with good barbecue made for an enjoyable lunch time experience. Staff is friendly. Restaurant is spotless. Lots of local residents were eating here. Eat inside or on the screened-in porch. Barbecue plate with a dinner roll and two sides for less than $8.

We've eaten at Kin Folks now 3 different times. Great pulled pork salad. Even tried their burgers and they were awesome! You won't be disappointed.

Very busy little spot to eat a delicious meal in Mountain View. My husband had the smoked bologna sandwich and he said it was very good. I had the BBQ sandwich with mild sauce and it was delicious. They also have a large menu if just about anything you want..even ice cream! You can sit on the screened in porch,... More

We eat her quite a bit and know good food. Mike gives you plenty of food for the amount you pay. The lunch specials are awesome too. The lunch chicken spaghetti is great too.

We went fishing Monday on Memorial day and needed lunch, when we got to town all the food places were either closed or had an hour wait time. We decided to go to Kin folks BBQ, so glad we did!! The service was great and so was all the food.

BBQ restaurant located close to the courthouse. BBQ smoked chicken was tasty when combined with the small portion of BBQ sauce served with it. The chicken portion was small compared to most places and the overall portion was a bit disappointing. Served with your choice of two sides... I chose the fries and beans, both just average. Other than the... More

I've been to a lot of BBQ places. This one was not good. The food was average and portions where small for the price. The service was a bit rude and impatient waiting for us to order. Also we had to clear our own table. I won't go back again.
