Kepley's is a quaint restaurant with really great BBQ. Has been around for year's and the owner still works there. Food is reasonably priced and the hush puppies are the best around!

We've dined there since we moved into the area. A small place but with great food at very reasonable prices. They offer homemade cherry, peach & blackberry cobbler that is fantastic.

A true wood smoked pork shoulders restaurant. Chopped pork sandwiches, plus hot dogs. Since 1948, talk to Bob who worked for and took over from original owner. Small silver diner from the past. Great place.

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.
