My wife and I stopped in for late lunch, staff was very nice, food was excellent, and the cleanliness of this restaurant was amazing!!! I had a bacon cheeseburger, and it was not a frozen patty, it was 100% real beef.....delicious!!! My wife had the Philly cheesesteak and she raved about how good it was. We topped it off with...

You know as soon as you walk in the door that you have arrived at a very special place. The smells, laughter, and service grab your attention but it doesn't take long before you notice what you don't hear - inappropriate language. The owners, (Mike and Beth) are usually looking out the portal from the kitchen welcoming each and every... More

We had lunch at Kin Folds BBQ. It is across the street from the park where music is played. Everything we ordered was good. The only thing I would rate average was the fried Jalapenos. The young lady that waited on us was very friendly. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

Shut the door, shut the door, you will be told to shut the door. At least that is what the sign says. The food was ok, staff not that friendly.

We were told that the sidewalks roll up early in this town, but if we drove around the corner, there was a bbq and ice cream place in a yellow building that would be open. Mind you, we're talking about LUNCH. You must obey the rules (don't make them tell you to close that door and no swearing), but it... More

The food at Kinfolks is always fresh and tasty - probably the best in town. The prices are reasonable. The servers always try to do a good job. The owner is a character and you'll see the signage to prove it. All parts of the restaurant are sparkling clean. It is is a very small building so you may end... More

We went here on a recommendation from a tour guide at Blanchard Springs ... he recommended the pimento cheese burger! It was excellent, service good, very cozy family atmosphere. Burgers are huge, so if you get any "sides", suggest you share a burger. The fried pickles are excellent as well. Only down side, and not sure about, but we didn't... More

Great pulled pork sandwich. Very busy little restaurant frequented by locals and visitors. We enjoyed our lunch and the music just outside.

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.
