Been coming here since childhood. Always loved the elderly Owner Mr. Burleson. A small quiet place to enjoy a cheap and easy meal.

This little gem has been around for quite a while and I can honestly say their chopped barbeque tastes like no other. It is vinegar-based (with other secret seasonings) and is ALWAYS moist and delicious. If you're ever in High Point, look up this quaint little place and enjoy!

Kepley's is small BBQ Diner serving eastern style BBQ. I realy have several other local or at least close BBQ places that I prefer. The have great service and nice portions of food. If you like the vinegar base NC Eastern style BBQ you will be OK with Kepley's. Even with the sauce I still eat there periodically.

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!

Passing by High Point on interstate and wanted some good North Carolina BBQ. Found Kepley's online as close to interstate so checked it out - what a great find! Has been in business since 1948 and still uses original vinegar based BBQ sauce recipe that is amazing. The hush puppies were the best I have ever had. The slaw was... More

There is no barbecue better than that of Piedmont N.C., and Kepley's is the best of the best, with a vinegar base. The slaw is also wonderful. Don't be put off by the shabby building. It is just part of the package.

I have been coming here since I was a little kid and this is still my standard for traditional Carolina pulled pork. I advise to use their special sauce along with a little Texas Pete. You can also buy by the pound to take home (which I do as I live in PA now).

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.
