I have eaten here many times over the past 50 or so years and it is gratifying to see that nothing much has changed over the years. The BBQ is still great, the Hush Puppies are fresh and crisp, the slaw is good, the sauce amazing, the service constant and friendly, and the prices are still reasonable. I like coming... More

Have been eating Kepley's BBQ since the 80's. Went again this week when visiting family in High Point. As usual the pork was superb, as was the slaw but the hush puppies really caught my attention! They were great - crisp and light.

This is a classic BBQ joint as they call it in the south. I had not been there in 30 years and it is still the same. Good simple menu of BBQ, slaw and hushpuppies. The hushpuppies were some of the best I have had ever! Great staff who have been there for years. Sweet tea - nectar of the... More

Not much of a variety on the menu but what they serve is great. Barbecue hotdogs hamburgers hush puppies french fries and last but not least deal pickles. Do not go to this restaurant... More

Down home, good old fashioned southern BBQ. This was the first N.C. BBQ I had ever had. Since then I've had the chance to try other style. Not my favorite, but as authentic as you'll find.

This place has been around for decades. Their menu is simple and for good reason. They serve what they do best. Some people think it's a little dry, but I love the fact that I can add the vinegar slaw and their special sauce.

The food was BBQ and they do a good enough job of it. I went because it is a HP legend. However, it is a noisy, crowded, older diner style building with an noisy, crowded older clientele of town regulars. If you know people, it is a great place to see your buddies. If you don't know the people, you... More

We love our trips to Kepley's. We make sure to stop in every time we come to NC. The hush puppies are the best. The staff and owner make you feel at home. They don't make places like this anymore.
