I got grilled chicken there which was delicious, but I'm gluten free and can't try what I heard was the best thing on the menu, the fried chicken. Everyone was raving about it! Definitely try that if you're not gluten free like me!

Had a great dinner at KK's. Sat outside on a beautiful evening. Food was good - half beet salad and fried chicken (had to have it - been here before and know how good it is). Service was very good as well!

Kings Kitchen serves up quite a plate ....and all of its profit goes to feed the Homeless. WOW!!! Delicious fried chicken and the cream corn is to die for . Excellent slaw. Very comfortable restaurant with nice selection from home-style meat and 3 to gourmet sandwiches and soups and salads.

Unable to get a reservation so just showed about 6:30pm on a Saturday. We were given the option of waiting an hour for an inside table or eating on the patio. The patio was empty given the high 50s temp but with the heat lamps on we were fine! Food was very good. I had the soft shell crab sandwich.... More

I'm not sure which came first- JO's 15 in London or KK in Charlotte. Both have staff who have turned their lives around, reason enough to go there. The fact the food is fantastic is icing on the cake! We were a group of 6 so sampled a lot. The fried ochra appy was spicy and salty in the best... More
