The King of the Grill has all of your meat needs covered! Poultry, Beef and Pork are smoked and barbequed daily. Meats are always fork tender and tasty.

This place not only has good food, but the service is outstanding. The owner will come out and sit and talk with you.

I love this little BBQ joint. The owner is super nice, clearly is a man of the faith that believes in Love, the Spartans, and good BBQ. I'm amazed whenever I have his chicken breast - great smoke and always moist. Whenever I work out...More
