“Very attentive staff, good foray into southern food”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We were in town for the DNC and had dinner here one night. The staff are very attentive and took pride and time in explaining the dishes to us.
There is only one vegetarian entree option and it is essentially a choice of 4 side dishes to make up a meal. While the staff were very good at explaining which of the side dishes were 'safe' for a vegetarian, 4 side dishes does not really substitute for a proper main meal.
It was a good way to experience southern food and prices matched the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant.

“Good Southern Cooking”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

I have been to King's Kitchen several times and each was a good experience. This time we started out with the cheese plate which was well done. Of course, be sure to ask for their biscuits with honey. It might not go with a cheese plate, but you must have it with your entree! My friend wanted the seared scallops, but asked to have them on a salad rather than over the succotash. They were more than happy to accommodate her. I ordered the flat iron steak, which was amazingly flavorful. For sides, I had collards and cheese grits .....NOT cheesy grits! They were just as tasty as the ones my mother used to make and I've never been able to duplicate.

“Great Fried Chicken!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Stopped by the King's Kitchen for dinner during the DNC on a recommendation. Fried chicken was juicy and delicious. Sides were mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and a side salad. Very glad the side salad was available, because I don't think I could have handled anything else. Paired with a great glass of wine, it was a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

“Good food but questionable atmosphere”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The food and service was wonderful but the restroom and the restaurant floor was a little dirty. I ordered the fried chicken and my husband had the ribs. Our friends ordered a vegetable plate and the fried chicken. All the food was soul food delicious, but I'm not sure I'd go back.
