We stopped here after Horseshoe Curve and had a really nice late lunch! Our server was very nice and accommodating. The food took a little longer to arrive than expected, but was worth the wait, as everything was excellent!

A group of friends and I stopped i to Kings for breakfast. The service was very good and friendly. The food was ok, had regular breakfast food, scrambled eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, and tried the pumpkin pancake. The food was brought out in a timely manner and everything was prepared as we had requested. This Kings is often times a regular... More

They have a big variety of diner food. Good ice cream and milkshakes. 24 hours. Bottomless coffee. I always liked their hot turkey sandwiches.

I had breakfast with friends @ this Kings. The bacon was cooked to death, the toast was hard and the hash brown tasted like grease. Would not recommend.

I am usually adverse to dining at a restaurant that will not post menu nor prices, but wife talked me into this. UGH! Presumably a [small] chain, one can compare with Eat n Park & Denny's. If that sort of place is where you wish to dine, take Eat n Park. Gravy was terrible. Meat low grade. Vegetables old &... More

I have been frequenting this location a few times a year for over 20 years. Primarily in groups for dessert, but that menu has been constantly shrinking since the good old days of the Kings Castle. I guess the only reason we choose this run-down location over the newer, cleaner location is just for nostalgia. The menu is good, food... More

Kings has pretty good food. However, this one is pretty dirty and the service is not too good. Go to things that is by Target and Field & Stream instead of this one.

The restaurant is decent. Waitress needs a personality. Food is good, and the price is good. Atmosphere is ok.

Our visit to Kings was pleasant, but average in most senses. The food (a very run-of-the-mill reuben sandwich, a salad, and two burgers) sufficed to satisfy our hunger at a reasonable price. The service was fine (standard) and their loyalty program allowed our friends to get a free milkshake. Apparently this is a regional 'chain' restaurant, and it has that... More
