Saw this restaurant on the way home. It doesn't look much from outside. Friendly staff. I ordered the ribs combo that comes with 2 sides and bread. So good and so cheap. Service was quick. Love every moment of it. Highly recommended for everyone. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner

There are actually more non-bbq items on the menu than what there are bbq items. So if there are members in your party that aren't particularly interested in eating bbq, there are plenty if other foods options. The food was very middle of the road. I've had better, and I've had worse. It was nothing to keep me from coming... More

Most excellent biscuit and gravy. Also do a great job with crispy bacon. They said they pop it in the deep frying.

I used to live in the Cocoa area and would frequent Kay's for their ribs. I really enjoy BBQ ribs, and they make some good ones! They are tasty and tender, and fall right off the bone. They are great with the little one's and have reasonably fast service. Check it out if you're hungry for BBQ.

This is the spot we girls meet at every wednesday for lunch. The food is good and if you get there just before 11:30, (which is what I always do) you can order breakfast.....they have some awesome specials!

On Fridays they have prime rib, and it is possibly one of the best I have ever tasted. Slightly smoky, and melt in your mouth tender. Great Breakfasts too.

We're from North Carolina and we're prejudiced. This is BBQ in name only. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The pork had been marinated in vinegar so long what I got was pulled vinegar. No other tastes, just vinegar. And the portion didn't even cover the bun! My wife's beef wasn't bad but wasn't discernibly barbecue. Apparently, you're supposed to... More

Kay's is very much a down home style BBQ joint. When they are on, you cannot beat their BBQ anything! The sides will be the best you ever had, and the meats...Umm Yummm Yummm! The feast for 2 actually feeds 3 or 4, and we usually order the sampler platter for around $16 and it always feeds both my husband... More
