Blows Famous Dave's away. Went here for lunch with a friend. Unassuming looks from the outside but the food is all that matters. Bldg next door is their smokehouse.. Nuff said. It's real !! We had the pulled pork sandwich. Came on a perfectly toasted thick piece of Texas Toast with the nice THIN French fries (I like those best).... More

If you're in the Buffalo area and you are craving good ol' BBQ, I suggest checking this place out. They have all the standard BBQ that you would look for. I personally like their Chicken and Ribs Combo. In addition, you'll get 2 sides and 2 pieces of Texas Toast.

Kentucky Greg's has the best BBQ in the area! They serve authentic southern food, including black eyed peas, fried okra, collard greens, corned bread, fried chicken, beef brisket, pulled pork, sausage and more! Everything is great quality. It's a pretty small casual place, but I've never had an issue getting a table. I've been to several BBQ restaurants in the... More

We decided on this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and it had great reviews on Yelp. It definitely didn't disappoint. It was a nice small business feel. Very laid back and the plenty of food.

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 pork and fried catfish. Oh, and the Pig cookies... 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...

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.
