Welcome to King's Barbecue

Family Owned and Operated

King’s Barbecue was established on December 20, 1946 by brothers John W. King and Clinton King.  Located in the historic city of Petersburg, we are one of the oldest family-owned BBQ restaurants in the state of Virginia.  Our mission has always been to provide simple, home cooked, quality food everyday in a family-friendly atmosphere.  We use the freshest meats that are slow-cooked over oak wood, make homemade items from scratch, and continue to use our family’s perfected sauce recipe to create our unique brand of BBQ.  Now in our third generation of ownership, we hope that you will be able to “make our family tradition…your family tradition.”

Take a look at

OUR MEATS

Keeping a barbecue tradition means keeping the quality of our meats up to our standards.  Our barbecue uses the same fresh cuts of meat that has been used in our restaurant for decades and are bought from name brand companies to ensure quality, consistency, and flavor.

Pork

Fresh whole pork shoulders from Smithfield, VA is the key ingredient to our famous barbecue. We slow cook them at a low temperature for over 12 hours using oak wood to provide the smoke profile. Then they are moved to our open pit where our meat cutters will take the freshly cooked pork and chop your BBQ to order. (Minced and Sliced are the proper Virginia terms)

Beef

Virginia isn't known for it's BBQ beef, but for many years King's has been serving up its own version that could rival with the Texas brisket. We use Top Butt Sirloin that is slow cooked over oak coals. Unlike brisket (which can only only be served well done because of it's toughness), our beef can be served in any temperature ours customers like from Rare to Well done.

Chicken

We use fresh chickens that are marinated with our original BBQ sauce and slowly smoked in our pit. We also serve fresh and juicy buttermilk fried chicken that is prepared and cooked to order. And even fresh fried chicken livers which are a southern delicacy.
