My husband suggested going to this place because it had such good reviews online. We were not impressed. We got there before the rush so we didn't have to wait for seats, were served our beverages quickly, and then we waited, and waited, and waited for the waitress to come back to take our order. I could see her across... More

So who doesn't love good BBQ. I certainly do, especially after spending some time living down south. I was told to check this place out. It smelled like BBQ, that's always a good sign. There was a 10-15 minute wait on a Friday evening. I ordered the create your own combo that came with 2 sides. I had the pulled... More

This is not only the best barbecue place in WNY, it is one of the best casual dining experiences period. The food is always perfect, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is out in just a few minutes even when they are busy.

Had lunch here for my husband's birthday. The service was quick. The food was very basic. I didn't consider it anything to write home about. I had a Cuban and my husband a very dry looking pork sandwhich. It gets such great reviews that I think, perhaps, we went in on an off day. Not in a hurry to go... More

Being a native western New Yorker but one who travels for a living, I know what true southern barbecue is supposed to taste like and let me tell you - THIS PLACE NAILS IT!!! The sad part is my wife's grandmother lives a couple blocks away and we never knew this place was here - trust me - if we... More

We found it on trip advisor and decided to try it. The service was incredibly fast, we had just ordered and the food was there. And it was hot. The BBQ sandwich was excellent and so were the fries. They were seasoned just right. Also got a Kentucky Derby piece of pie to go and it was delicious. Would definitely... More

We really like Kentucky Greg's. The brisket is some of the best in Buffalo. Best I've had since I lived in Texas. The cornbread is really goods and the portions are plentiful. The dining room is a bit smallish, but the staff are very friendly. If you have to wait, it would be worth it!

Went to celebrate my husband's birthday on a Monday Night. Even though they were out of ribs (which my boys wanted), they were easily appeased by the chicken and chicken/pork combo meals. So much food we had to bring home leftovers. Very good flavors and quick service.

This is a neighborhood place for barbecue or even a decent fish fry. The food is good and the wait staff are friendly. Had the ribs the other day and they were pretty good, I personally like going on Fridays for fish as you get a nice sized portion. All the food we have had has been good and come... More

We've eaten here before, and always had great great pulled pork and pulled chicken. This time, we did take out, and it was almost as good as being there. Everything was was well prepared, and put in convenient containers. Our order was perfect (four adults) and ran the gamut from platters to sandwiches along with sides of baked beans, cornbread,...
