We stop here maybe once every two months. This is a truck stop restaurant that has a decent atmosphere and serves breakfast lunch and diner. I highly recommend the shrimp salad and the hamburger steak. The breakfast has your bacon, eggs and typical breakfast menu items. The service varies due to the fact that turnover is high with waitstaff. The... More

The VERY best thing they have on the menu is their seafood muffaletto, which... More

My wife and I went to King's on a Sunday evening. My wife had fried oysters, I had a platter which had fried catfish and fried shrimp, my fried had jambalaya. It was all very good and we had to take some home. We will be back there again.

The restrooms... More
