Went there with kids and as a first timer, it didn't impress me nor did it make me want to go back. Didn't know you had to self seat and when your there no one tells you so you end up being all awkward. Food was too greasy and not impressed.

A local institution as I understand. Food excellent. Service good. Price a bargain. Unless you are eating for 2 or more, forego the "large" plates. Next time I will try the ribs.

This place is everything but fancy but the food is great (I always have the BBQ pork sandwich) and the service super friendly. It has a special charm that you either love or hate. I love it.

I've eaten at this local favorite more times than I can count and the place, while little more than an old time diner, has decent southern cooking. The staff is courteous and attentive and the prices will leave you with a full belly..and plenty of cash in your wallet. Whether your in the mood for Carolina BBQ, fried chicken livers... More

K&L is a great place to eat. The BBQ Chicken is delicious. Everything is delicious. The service is exceptional. The wait staff is friendly and always at the ready to get you whatever you may need. I go here every chance I get. You should too.

Our favorites are the BBQ, onion rings, fried chicken and pork chops. Sweet Tea and cole slaw top off the palate. It is a place we can fill up the boys affordably. Go get you some Southern cuisine at it's best! Checkout hours before making the drive.

We have been to K & L many times over the years. The BBQ is good and the service is fast. There is nothing fancy here but good food at a very reasonable price. While waiting the few minutes for your food you may want to take note of the license plates that decorate the walls.

Trip Advisor brought me here and I was glad it did. Such a friendly place! Even a northern boy like me was warmly greeted and helped. My waiter took her time to help me order things I wouldn't have chosen. I was glad I listen to here. Just wish my stomach was bigger! The BBQ chicken was great, the potato... More

If you are looking for good local fare like bar b que, fried chicken, pork chops, etc. at very reasonable prices then this is your place. Local family run business with a huge local following and weekly specials nightly. An example is chicken and dumplings on Thursday night, but better come early as they always sell out. A good family... More
