Kay's food is pretty darn good. Breakfast is very tasty. Sliced pork is not fatty. I do recommend that if you are going to get the sliced beef, order it as pink or rare as possible otherwise it will be gray and really dry. If...More

I was born and raised in this area so I have eaten at many restaurants in Central Brevard. I drop in, or pick up carry-out, whenever I can for lunch. The hometown atmosphere and quick and friendly service make it an easy go-to when deciding...More

I have eaten here off and on for years. Altough the BBQ is good they make excellent breakfast food. There is plenty of seating and it appears to be clean but it could use a little updating

Being military and new to the area. My boyfriend and I visited Kay's for a future BBQ house to frequent. That is not what we will be doing. The experience was horrible right from the beginning. Not very friendly to a mixed couple. Felt really...More
