Great food. Great space. Awesome mission. Located just a block off the center of uptown Charlotte, King's Kitchen is always a delightful dining experience. I love their fried chicken but went with the catfish last time I was there. Sides are southern style and a veggie plate is another great option. And leave room for dessert! It can be a bit loud during peak times, but that just means leaning in to your dining companion a little more. King's Kitchen is a dining gem in the Queen City!

Me and my wife were in town for a concert tonight and stopped in for dinner. Fantastic does not do our experience justice. The service was exceptional. We mentioned my wife's onion allergy in our reservation and they had a menu with what she could and couldn't have marked down sitting on the table when we were seated. The food was quick and absolutely delicious. The only downside to the night was that we were not hungry enough to eat more! The chef came out to help my wife find something she could eat, and was helpful in offering suggestions and went over and above in being accommodating to her needs. I think we'll make it a point to come here from now on when we are in town.

It is decent could improve in some areas. Atmosphere is calming & service is alright 8/10. Food was very salty like cornbread and devil eggs and Mac n cheese. Shrimp n grits very very spicy However fried chicken was great along with biscuit!! Love the give back non profit mission they are apart of helping others. Thank you wishing more success to this place

I was skeptical when I walked it. I saw a cross and Christian faith related descriptions and symbols. My first questions were: Are you faith based? and Are you a restaurant?. It turns out that the restaurant is a not for profit that gives back to the community I believe to people that dont have enough food. Their motto is A southern kitchen on a local mission. I looked at the menu and decided to give it a shot. The food is southern. I almost went with the fried chicken, but opted for boneless pork chop with collard greens and green beans. I did finish it all off with the banana pudding and a latte. The food was phenomenal. I suppose I was a little surprise. The decor of the restaurant was nice and my waitress was really good. The restaurant also has a full bar. Yes alcohol is served at this restaurant with a faith based mission. I suppose you couldnt really exist as a restaurant in uptown Charlotte if you dont serve alcohol.

Lets start off with the atmosphere which was very welcoming. We started off with some appetizers deviled eggs and the corn bread and biscuit basket. Everything was salty. For our meals we had the fried chicken which was pink in the inside. Country fried steak was not to my particular liking. Collards no flavor. I won't get into the Mac and cheese. Overall service was good. The food just wasn't what I was expecting flavor nor menu wise.
