If you're in the mood for grease the buffet will serve you well. If you're remotely into eating healthy...drive on. I chose not to eat here but did take one bite of my companion's BBQ/pulled pork. Found it to be dry & stringy. Service was less than desirable. In fairness to the restaurant, I will say it is probably a decent choice for family with kids & anyone into literally pigging out!

Actually, I dont because Id probably weigh 500 pounds! The chicken, bbq, setting, and staff were nothing but great. It is just as much a part of NC as Tobacco Road.

This is North Carolina pulled pork BBQ at its best. We stop here on our way to the NC seashore and on our way home every year. This year, I finally ordered the Pig in a Puppy -- It's a pulled pork BBQ sandwich with w giant hushpuppy as a bun! It was totally delicious. Wash it down with some sweet tea. Trust me on this. The prices are so reasonable, the service is friendly. Love this place!

The buffet was very, very good! Relatively good selection and it was fresh and warm. My waitress was named Brea, and she was very good at her job. She made the meal very pleasant, and she understood the answer to "thank you" is "you're welcome". It made her an extra dollar on the tip!!! The pictures in the restaurant are a history lesson in themselves. Give it a try, I bet you'll enjoy yourself. Don't eat too much!

I love the food at Kings barbecue and go there every time I am in Kinston. The barbecue is some of the best barbecue in the south.
