We ate lunch here and it was fabulous. We had the buffet (they also have an ala carte section) which was quite a spread. In addition to various vegetables there were 3-4 meat choices as well as a salad bar and desserts. All this for a very nominal fee.

While visiting Kinston for the BBQ festival we happened upon King's BBQ & CHICKEN. We've learned during our travels that a full parking lot is a sign of good food. We stopped by Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a delicious meal. I had the chicken and bbq combo because I couldn't decide. My wife had Thanksgiving dinner in May (yes really,... More

Great country style buffet featuring BBQ pork, fried chicken, popcorn shrimp, Pork tenderloin, chicken and pastry, and too many vegetables to mention. Deserts were fair. Senior discount if you ask.

If East Carolina Barbecue is your desire, King's is the place to find it. A varied and extensive menu of Barbecue, Brunswick Stew, hush puppies, slaw, and potato salad are just a few of the items available. There are burgers, sandwiches and combo plates to suit every palate. The chicken/barbecue combo plate (with two sides) was enough for two people.... More
