Was passing through Eustis and asked at the gas station where to eat. Said there was a barbeque place called Kings, kind of off the beaten path but worth it. Tucked away in a residential neighborhood was this establishment. Friendly service and the barbeque was great. Tbe Kings sauce has a little kick and really good. Now I'm from North... More

King's has been here since Moby Dick was a minnow. Not the same as it used to be but then times do change. The whole menu is not available every day as they run out of stuff due to popularity and freshness. This is southern/FL mustard based barbeque. If that is not your thing, furgetaboutit. The chicken is great. The... More

King's is off the beaten path, so you won't find it by accident, but it is definitely worth seeking out. We learned of it in an article on BBQ in an old Southern Living magazine. For $17 we got the rib and chicken dinner. You get a half slab of large, meaty ribs, a quarter chicken, and two sides. We... More

My dad grew up in Eustis, I've been eating here as long as I can remember. Any time I'm passing near Lake County, I try to pick up a slab or two of ribs. Best ribs I've ever had. And I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't like the sauce. Delicious.

Have you ever dipped a thick cut of bacon into mustard? That is the closest thing I can think of to describe King's only put some spice and a lil more vinegar to the sauce. It's really good but you have to like mustard! If you don't like mustard order it without the sauce! I think Kings has the best... More

I usually have mixed feelings about this place. I went to another BBQ place which had no chicken so with some reservation I returned here after a years absence. I am glad I did. The BBQ chicken tasted excellent . I had the sauce on the side. The area seems to be a lot nicer too. Will return again.

The mustard based bbq sauce is an acquired taste but like any new treat, always worth the effort. I love it. The ribs are sumptuous but, also...Ask for the pulled pork and if you must have HOT, ask for a little (little!) bit of their special hot sauce on the side. It ranks as one super sensation. Expect to pay... More

After reading the reviews and seeing comments on facebook I had to try this place out for myself. People either love this place or hate it. Its in a bad part of town but that is normally were you find the best food and this did not disappoint. The sauce was mustard based BBQ and had a very good flavor.... More

This critique is long over due. My husband and I attended a function that Kings BBQ was the vendor for. We each ordered a chicken sandwich. The sandwich basically consisted of a quarter chicken (leg & thigh) bones and all, placed in between two pieces of white bread with some kind of slop spread on the bread, then wrapped in... More

I remember going to King's as a child with my father over 35 years ago. It's still there and still delicious. From Ribs to chicken, they cook it just right every time. the building is old and the location is not the best. Take out only.
