Pulled pork and Fried Catfish are outstanding

Don't waste your time looking elsewhere, Kentucky Greg's has the best BBQ in the area. The side dishes are home made, beans have a distinct smoky flavor, and of course, blues music playing in the restaurant. There are so many good choices, it's hard to try anything beyond my favorites; pulled... read more

Aside from catfish and salad, I've tried every single item on this great restaurant's menu, including all of their fabulous desserts. This place is immaculate, their waitstaff is caring and friendly, and you can never go wrong with ordering anything on the menu. Portions are plentiful, service will always put a smile on your face, and the food is the... More

Ate at Greg' tonight with wife. She had ribs, I had catfish. KG's is my wife's favorite place to eat for ribs. They are truly smoked, no oven baked imitation here. All the smoked food is great: ribs, brisket, pulled pork. The catfish is the best in Buffalo. Sides are great as well. We've never tried the desserts as we... More

Kentucky Greg's is great. You get your food within 10 minutes or ordering it. The Gumbo is Fantastic, I recommend everyone try it at least once. I usually opt for the Barbeque Pork Sandwich with Fries over the Barbeque Dinner with Fries/other side because it is cheaper with almost the same amount of food. Ignore all the fancy places around...

Do NOT miss this excellent barbecue when in Buffalo. The service and food are exceptional! Be sure to try the black-eyed peas and collard greens!

Great spot for any BBQ occasion. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered and recommend the half slab of ribs, burnt ends, mac & cheese with a side of beans.

The best pulled pork and beef brisket I ever had. Served on Texas toast with little or no BBQ sauce on it, you can taste the smokiness and juciness of the meat. The sauce is there to add yourself. It's not like chain places that serve the meat slopped in sauce. You get all meat.The side dishes are pretty good... More

We've been going to Kentucky Gregs since they opened. They have the best barbecue and jambalaya in the area!
