We tried Kinches fro the first time this summer. It is a local restaurant and in downtown Rock Hill. We selected the special of the day, Philly Cheese steak sandwiches which were extremely good. We did notice most of the restaurants patrons were having the fried chicken with sides. Since we have not been there before, we were not aware... More

Located in Old Town Rock Hill, SC Kinch's is a traditional southern meat and veggies lunch diner. Meat plus veggies lunch diners are a southern US tradition and Kinch's builds on that tradition by offering meat plus veggies dishes along side burgers, and other daily specials. Locals say Kinch's has the best chicken in town. The meatloaf and Carolina Classic... More

Meat and three plus many other standards like their Fried Chicken. Standard for many years with locals. Good burgers for a quick lunch.

Love the chicken and vegetables as Kinch knows how to do a great "meat and three" and it is always fast and reasonable.

Kinch's is a local favorite. Been there for lunch many many times. The chicken is superb, and great veggies and sides too.

Nothing to get excited about. Wife and I had coupon for buy one get one. We decided for the meat and two veggies. Collards were good and real cream potatoes. Chicken too dry. Wife said hers just ok.

Thus little gem, tucked away in a back street in Rock Hill is our go-to for lunch. I had a great grilled chicken on a summer salad and the others in our party enjoyed the hamburger platter and grilled chicken sandwich. This is our second time here and the place is reasonably large but very busy around noon so plan... More

This is a great little place nestled in a beautiful downtown area . Walking in it almost felt like Mayberry . There was a large table with a policemen and men that all looked like city officials eating lunch together. The owner took our order and pointed out some must see areas in their community. We were in town for... More

Kinch's is your place if you want local color and a good meal. The food tastes like my mom's cooking. The ambience is like that of a diner, and the service is good and friendly. If you like patronizing local restaurants, you'll like this one.

Business partner brought me here for lunch. Great selection of southern style food, veggies, meats etc. Great plated lunch, inexpensive. Counter service, so don't expect drink refills, it's self serve. Definitely a place to return to. Basic decor, a little old and dated, but the food is good.

Thank WesleyMCPA
