"I've been in eastern NC for 21 years and just made it to kings. I loved it. Don't know what was better, the people or the food. Can't wait to go back again and again and again!!!" - Mike H.

From Our Family to Yours, Welcome!

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. 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 your doorstep. Kings BBQ Restaurant can also host your special event - our banquet space can accommodate private events up to 350 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. Learn More
