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

This is a mom and pop style operation and you feel like family when you walk in. Southern style BBQ with the appropriate fixings and the price was great for the large portions! This would be a priority to make it here if I ever come back to the area.

Don't be fooled by the exterior it was a ShoneyBigBoy restaurant but now a place where the locals go for a good meal...homemade bar b q, etc. Look around for all the license plates mounted around the walls. Very casual attire.

I had the pork barbecue plate with lima beans/corn and potato cake. Blackberry cobbler for dessert. It was all very tasty.

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
