  • "Kenny's never fails to produce delicious, savory food that makes your mouth water for more. Our server Amanda was great, friendly and joked around with our sense of humor."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Kenny’s Smoke House. The brisket was outstanding and probably the best we have eaten. This says a lot since we love to smoke our own brisket (which is really good!) and BBQ quite often. We ordered the Beef Ribs and sample plate, plus several sides. Everything was delicious and fresh. Dinner plate portions are large and we brought home leftovers which we enjoyed the following night. Highly recommend, in fact, we will be back and bringing friends! Enjoy!"

  • "Our visit to the Smoke House was our first, and I can honestly say that the meal was fabulous. The wood-smoked meats are delicious and the smell of the wood was mouthwatering! Portions are generous and each of our group took food home. The salads are delicious as well as the sides. Our favorite meats-brisket and smoked turkey. This might be a good place to order meats for a home gathering. We will definitely go again."

  • "Great service. Tender, moist and tangy brisket. 28 degree Vodka on tap makes for great martinis. Brisket nachos are a great way to start. Recommended!"

  • "I'm not a barbeque aficionado, but the food here was wonderful. I could tell by the aroma before we entered the restaurant that the smokey goodness would be worth the trip - and it was."

  • "We are particularly fond of the smoked prime rib and onion fries, and there is a great bear selection to go with...!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "From the prime rib to the beef ribs to the chicken fingers everything tastes wonderful. Sides are large for sharing. Nice craft beer selection and of course grey goose on tap. Tried the tostado apppetizers for the first time and they are delicious. Ended with the chocolate brownie, which is made daily and does not last long with my crew. Always end up with take away boxes but save room for dessert"

  • "This was our 4th visit to Kenny's, and though it has typically been a nice experience, this time was disappointing. The little things just added up -- no garnish or stirrers in our cocktails, we were seated at a dirty table (cleared but not wiped down or re-set), we had to ask repeatedly for sweetener for our tea, the waitress did not know the dressings on the Cobb salad, the type of marbling ordered on the brisket was not the type received, and our waitress stopped to ask us how our food was no less than seven times while we were trying to eat and talk. It just wasn't a very good experience over-all. Not sure if we'll be back there any time soon..."

  • "I'm not especially a fan of BBQ. I always get the salmon @ Kenny's. IT's good although a little dry. I found the Mac n cheese to be swimming in it's creamy sauce, so not up to expectation. The shrimp appetizer was pretty good with a variety of sauces to accompany. The rest of our party loved their BBQ sampler plates or their lean brisket. Kenny's is very good about making substitutions so as to please. Our waitress, Jennifer, was a TRIP. She was helpful, funny, friendly but not overbearing! The birthday boy at our table was given a giftcard to Kenny's for a return trip. Always wise to make a reservation in advance to insure being seated without a long wait."

  • "We took my 92 year old father here for lunch on Father's Day, he loves BBQ. The reception we got put the biggest smile on his face. They complimented him on his funny t-shirt he was wearing and he was so excited about it and the food, he wanted to back there the next Sunday. They remembered him when he walked in and even offered a free appetizer. Haven't seen him this excited about a restaurant...ever! Great manager and great waitress, very attentive to customer needs."

  • "The BBQ is excellent. This time around, I had the smoked prime rib special with a side of loaded mashed potatoes. I asked for medium rare and mine came out a little closer to the medium side. Next time I'll probably just go rare. The prime rib was very tasty, regardless. The specialty drinks are good and not too unreasonably priced. Food comes out really fast. There's not a lot of seating, so the place can get packed if you don't arrive early (or have a reservation)."

  • "One work companion (who recommended we go there) got the pulled pork plate with mac and cheese and was very happy with it. The other co-worker ordered from multiple meat "sampler" plate (which is on the dinner menu) and said he thought the pork ribs and brisket were outstanding. I had the beef ribs, and while they were cooked very very well (nearly fall-apart), I was disappointed that they came with so much BBQ sauce on them. Make no mistake, the sauce was really really good, but I found it to completely overwhelm the beef ribs. Multiple wait staff worked seamlessly and the runners knew where to put the plates down without asking. Drinks were never empty for long, and didn't require us asking. Surprisingly small place - reservations!"

  • "Our first visit to Kenny's Smokehouse and it was outstanding! Friendly service right from the start....from the hostess to the server (Missy was great!). The manager, Stephanie, took the time to come over and make us feel welcomed. The food was exceptional. I was raised in BBQ country and I'm kind of a BBQ snob, but the food rivaled great BBQ and if it would have been served on butcher paper with paper plates and cups, I would have thought I was back home. We had out of town guest with us and this was their first Texas BBQ experience.....Fantastic job!"

  • "Stumbled upon this place via Apple Maps. Sounded good. BOOM! Was I surprised by the awesome awesomeness of the joint!!! Food was EXCELLENT!! The freekin' pre-dinner bread-thingee (seriously, it looked like a big, doughy, upside-down mushroom) was UH-mazing!! And the service was RIDONKULOUS! I can't believe I'm only allowed to give it 5 Stars...! PHST! It was like five THOUSAND stars!!! YEAH!!! No, really. It was fantastic. Best fried chicken tenders (seriously) EVER!"

  • "Both times we've been to Kenny's we were shown to our table almost immediately. Servers are very attentive and competent. I had the BBQ sampler; brisket fresh and flavorable, sausage too spicy but I still finished it off, ribs memorable, BBQ sause quite good; also got two sides with the meal--no complaints (recommend the baked beans). Don't hesitate to go back. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I went with the sampler this time after previously having the beef ribs. All were very good. The pork ribs and brisket were incredible. I had a little too much smoke on one end if the sausage, but it was still very good. Make sure you get some of the spicy bbq sauce to go with your meal. Great job Kenny!"

  • "Great place with some great food...the smoked 1/2 chicken was too good...the only thing that wasn't great was that they serve it "whole" and I splattered sauce on my white shirt trying to cut/rip it apart, but that was my fault for not asking it to be served in pieces....BBQ Beans were really good and a little jalapeno kick to them...the Jalapeno Corn Bread was equally good...nice casual attitutude to the place..."

  • "What an improvement over our first visit which I now believe was just an off night. The pulled pork was very tender and the jalapeno cheese sausage is certainly a unique find, very tasty and should be ordered by everyone on every visit. My wife had the prime rib (posted on the chalkboard) and highly, very highly, recommends it. The service was outstanding. Kenny's Smoke House is now in my top 5 Dallas area BBQ joints. Well Done!"

  • "The beef ribs were enormous and tasted better than I've ever had before. They were very moist, which is hard to do with beef ribs. The brisket (moist version) had incredible flavor and tenderness. Some sides we were not able to try due to a family member's allergy, but the truffle oil Mac and cheese looked tasty and our neighboring table loved it as well as the giant loaf of cornbread and honey butter. We had BBQ beans that were good but not great and waffle fries that were very crunchy on the outside but soft inside. This is a great place to grab dinner with friends."
