Kings BBQ Restaurant stands in the same spot where the King family launched a tradition that's lasted more than 75 years. We're proud of our legacy of serving up the finest Eastern NC-style hand-chopped bbq pork marinated in our secret recipe bbq sauce to generations of North Carolinians, Crystal Coast tourists and families nationwide.

When you visit Kings, you're greeted by family and treated like family. We take the time to create award-winning Southern food from scratch using the freshest local ingredients and our grandparents' recipes. Our tradition of true Southern hospitality has won recognition from Our State Magazine, The New York Times, and the CBS Early Show, to name a few. Even Martha Stewart couldn't resist taking home a batch of our fried chicken!

The best thing about Kings' hand-chopped pork bbq, homemade bbq sauce,
and mouth watering ribs is – we'll deliver it right to your doorstep! Call us or order online through Kings Oink Express and get our hand-chopped bbq, bbq ribs, secret sauces and scrumptious sides shipped to you overnight.

Kings BBQ Restaurant can also host your special event - our banquet space can accommodate private events up to 500 people. If you can't make it to Kinston, we'll come to you! Kings caters weddings, rehearsal dinners, conferences, and graduations from the Triangle to the coast.

Be sure to stop by and enjoy the best family feast Down East! Kings BBQ Restaurant has 3 locations in Kinston with plans to expand to Snow Hill.

From our family to yours – welcome!
