We love Kelly's! My wife and kids love going here for their pulled pork barbecue, fried chicken, beef brisket, and tons of sides to go with it all! They have a ton of variety of sides, and lots of desserts. They are only open Wednesday through Saturday.

We have eaten here many many times and in the past year r so it has not been as good as it once was. It seems as if the onlyninterest they focus on is quantity. Not presentation or flavor. It is standard middle of the road at best. And for a couple, for the quality, I feel that the price... More

The food is great, but bring an appetite. It had loads of vegetables and a variety of barbeque. There are plenty of sweets too for those who like their sugar. Friendly staff and the food stays at good temperature with loads of flavor.

Very affordable, 14.98 for a buffet. Excellent food, best barbeque I had for a lunch, pick among fried, grilled and pulled. Chicken, Pork. Drink, dessert coffee included. A pity that they are using disposable plates, cutlery. Otherwise a true southern old fashion barbeque experience

Pulled into Kelly's for a Friday evening meal. No one greeted us, nor was there any explanation as to the buffet process; not the clearest system to follow. Very disappointed to see styrofoam everything! The food was either cold when it shouldn't have been or so over cooked it was mush. Best thing of the entire meal was the strawberries... More
