Family restaurant that serves home cooked meals. Chili is available on Fridays but better get there early it goes fast. BBQ and Chicken with all the normal sides are really good. The service is normally pretty quick.

Went to K & L after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor and was glad we did. The food was great. I had to try the bbq sampler of pork, beef and chicken with 2 delicious sides. It was a generous portion of very tasty food. Just wish I had room for the equally tasty looking desserts. Our server, Holly welcomed... More

This is simple good down home food. Nothing fancy. Bring cash doesn't take credit or check. Barbecue is what it is known for, but has good daily specials and home made desserts.

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.
