When I was a young person, my parents and I would periodically visit my grandparents and aunts who lived in High Point. For me, eating barbecue at Kepley's was worth the visit. My grandparents and parents died long ago and I recently went to High Point for the funeral of my last surviving aunt. As has been my practice for... More

Ate here for lunch and was dsappointrd in the cue. Found it to be dry and tasteless,also had hard bits of meat mixed in. The slaw had too much vinegar. Service as always was very good.

I grew up in High Point and Kepleys BBQ has been there since I can remember. Best BBQ, slaw and hush puppies in the South. Unique flavor that is hard to duplicate. Can't get enough. Family owned and operated.

So during our wedding details one night trip my fiance decided the family needed to try kepleys so we did. It was very good! The hushpuppies are out of this world. And i cant say enough about Paw-paw, he introduced himself to the kids as pawpaw. He even let them pick something out of the candy counter. It really touched... More

We eat here whenever we can and need a good quick meal. It's pretty much only BBQ or hot dogs with all the fixins like it has been for generations. This BBQ is very food whether chopped of sliced and the ice tea is southern style good! They do more take-out and catering than eat-in and the table seating is... More

I have eaten here many times over the past 50 or so years and it is gratifying to see that nothing much has changed over the years. The BBQ is still great, the Hush Puppies are fresh and crisp, the slaw is good, the sauce amazing, the service constant and friendly, and the prices are still reasonable. I like coming... More

Have been eating Kepley's BBQ since the 80's. Went again this week when visiting family in High Point. As usual the pork was superb, as was the slaw but the hush puppies really caught my attention! They were great - crisp and light.

This is a classic BBQ joint as they call it in the south. I had not been there in 30 years and it is still the same. Good simple menu of BBQ, slaw and hushpuppies. The hushpuppies were some of the best I have had ever! Great staff who have been there for years. Sweet tea - nectar of the... More

This is a very small family owned barbecue restaurant. The service at this restaurant is always good the waitresses all have been there a long time. Not much of a variety on the menu but what they serve is great. Barbecue hotdogs hamburgers hush puppies french fries and last but not least deal pickles. Do not go to this restaurant... More
