I recently rediscovered this place. Kepley's is a joint that I remember fondly from my childhood. Imagine how happy I was to visit 30 years later and find that it hasn't changed! Old school atmosphere, genuinely appreciative service, and superior NC BBQ. Recommend!

Standard Carolina BBQ but Bob is a delight if you get to speak with him. So many fun stories about the history of his restaurant and the town in general.

Good portions for reasonable price. The blackberry cobbler was delicious. They offer serving sizes that suit the size of your appetite.

Don't get me wrong, the food here is very good, but it is overrated in my opinion. The BBQ is average and I have had much better here in NC now that I have lived here so many years and traveled all over the state....More

Stopped here for lunch, we were attracted to its age. It's really your old time BBQ joint. We both got the BBQ sandwich and hush puppies. I was most impressed with their Carolina vinegar based sauce. It packed a great punch. We'll have to get...More
