Plumbing In San Diego Repair (American Plumbing Co.): THE Kitchen Drain is usually the one that clogs the most often, and is really the easiest.
Especially if you have a Clean-Out Access. (using a 3/8 or a 1/2 inch cable machine is best using a to big of a cable can damage the piping). All you need to do is run or Feed the cable threw the clean-out. (carefully, easily) till it hits the stoppage, then just go (back and forth) slowly and carefully, take your time, basically don't force the cable (Gently LET THE MACHINE DO THE WORK). Make Sure You Wear Leather Gloves.
Once line clears run water (Preferably HOT Water) for a couple of minutes. Maybe 4 or 5 minutes. To make sure waste or stoppage. Drains and it does not build up again and cause a problem further down the drain. And always throw the food away in a plastic bag. Even, yes if you have a garbage disposal. Well especially when the lines are 40 Plus Years old. The Lines build up in the Kitchen drain line and can easily clog.
P.S. A Sneaky Method to unclog a kitchen drain is. To Attach a blow-bag (Any Home depot should carry, costs around 25.00 bucks) to the end of the Water Hose. I have unstopped many, many a drain in my 35+ years when Plumbing In San Diego. Without ever having to use a machine. The Best Blow Bags are the ones with a Metal end. Those you have to find in a Hardware Store
"Very Important" make sure when you stick the hose down with the blow bag through the cleanout, a place which usually has a plug which you unscrew the plug to access the drain outside the kitchen.
MAKE SURE That water does not come out through another drain or exit. Basically watch out for OVERFLOW of plumbing fixtures when using the hose and blow bag trick. Like in Your Shower Drain, or another drain close by.
