I have eaten at K & L Barbeque many times. The atmosphere is friendly and the food is very good. Some of the best barbeque around the area.

My wife and I ate dinner here tonight, 7/25/16. We have eaten here about 6 times a year for the past approx.15 years (we live only 6 miles away). As usual, the food, service, friendliness of staff, and cleanliness - EXCELLENT. As dependable as a Pulsar watch, and what keeps us coming back. With tip, our meal totaled $20.00. Highly... More

Nothing fancy about this place. They keep it simple. Really great southern plates and super service. Very reasonablerth prices. They only accept CASH. Open Monday thru Friday only. It is always crowded with locals who are very friendly. Many patrons come from miles around and out of state just to enjoy this restaurant and continue to be repeat customers. Well... More

I absolutely love this place !!! I love the owners and their son Steve Nugent. We support each other, not just because we locals; but because the food is good and the prices are affordable. I am a retired, disabled person and whenever I cannot cook, I go two blocks away to K and L Barbeque. I normally call my... More

Best fried chicken in the tri cities area. Great with Cole slaw and potato salad. We also love their hush puppies and biscuits!

Not open on weekends and stays busy every weekday. Good food, great service and can't be beat prices. Servers have been here for years and knows the locals by first name. You haven't had good Bar-B-Q till you have tried this.

This is a Hopewell staple. Many of the customers come 3-5 times a week for lunch or dinner. The food has that down home quality. There's usually a daily special. Unfortunately my favorite, spaghetti, is only offered the first Tuesday of the month. I always make adjustments to my schedule so I don't miss out! The wait staff treats you... More
