Great BBQ flavor, taste, hard woods used.. Dining room is smaller but smoke is not over-whelming. One of the best upper scale bbq places in Dallas. Not to fancy, but not a brown butcher paper place.

Kenny's Does It Again
Another home run for Kenny, this time it's BBQ. We went for lunch, started with the Cheddar-Jalapeño Sausage and then I moved on to the Turkey BLT while my coworker had the brisket. Great choices all the way around!

We have loved Kenny's Woodfire Grill in Addison and thought we would try Kenny's Smoke House. It was a little more casual,but every bit as delicious with excellent service. Can't wait to go again!!

It's just all good
Another great spot from the Kenny's chain. The meat is not overly seasoned and smoked up quite well. I have tried almost all the meats and sides now (I like the Kenny's restaurants quite a bit) and everything is just that good. The place is a bit small so call ahead for seating and if more than one large party is around, it can get a bit noisy.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! This place will blow your mind
Okay - I am crazy over-the-top impressed with the quality of food, service, & ambience!! The price choice, food variety, & especially the sauce were all ideal! I highly recommend reservations because it's quite the spot. But I had not one complaint from start to finish...

I have now been twice in two weeks. The first time was date night we had a small table it was romantic the second time was with the kids alone for lunch and it was still a perfect setting for them. My kids aren't babies though. The food is literally the best barbecue and that's saying a lot for a native Texan to say. If you go for dinner I suggest the sampler platter we shared it and it was more than enough food for two. At lunch we just ordered 3 things and shared it was way too much food we had to take some to go. The service is outstanding just like any of Kenny's other places.

Best BBQ we have found by far! BBQ beans and mac n cheese top notch!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful surprise. Great
Wonderful surprise. Great smells and personal greeting when you walk in. Menu had great selection. Food was wonderful.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Kenny's is more of a yuppie BBQ place, not the backyard hometown kinda BBQ I was expecting. The food was decent but the folks that work there are great people! Brisket was a bit drier than I like. The Mac n cheese was really good, but if you want veggies make sure you ask what they have. All in all, it was good.

Kenny never disappoints
Honestly Kemny Bowers has never disappointed us and his new restaurant Smokehouse is no different. The brisket stuffed jalepenos are delicious. The barbecue is always tender and juicy and my personal favorite is the New Orleanes barbeque shrimp. Don't forget sides, because they are all fantastic too!
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were looking for some great barbeque and we found it!! Along with outstanding service. We would recommend the brisket stuffed jalapenos.....they were delicious as well as the pork ribs (the meat literally fell off the bones) and the brisket sandwich is huge! We will definitely being returning.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five of us ate at Kenny's and it was excellent. We had ribs, brisket, chicken, sausage, and swordfish. Everyone thought their entree was incredible. The brisket-jalapeño poppers we had for an appetizer was incredible. The service was excellent also.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at Kenny's
We went to Kenny's on a Saturday night. We made reservations and were glad we did. We have been to Kenny's Burgers and love it, and this did not disappoint. either. The food was outstanding. I had the prime rib and my husband had the sampler plate. Our son joined us and he had the brisket. Great barbeque flavors. We had some of their specialty drinkks and they also were very good. We will definitely go back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will Definitely Go Back!
I took my mom there recently for her birthday. They had a great selection of seafood and different types of BBQ. I personally got the brisket and it was great. Potentially one of the best BBQ places in this area. Their house smoked salmon was delicious. They also have a good list of micro brews if that is something you are interested in.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, Customer Service, & Ambiance
This visit was for my wife's birthday and as expected - was excellent. The brisket stuffef jalopenos, ribs, and marbelled brisket, are the best. We have been to all the Kenny's restaurants and each are equally super on food quality, taste, and customer service. These places offer the best of the best and nothing is compromised. The restaurant is great for all occasions and is not your typical smoke house atmosphere. We loved the courteousness, food, and personal service. As managers of Kenny's Smoke House, Elizabeth and Adrienne are excellent and add immensely to the great customer service. I would not hesitate to return for any event and highly recommend you to all my friends. Keep up the great work and my compliments to all at Kenny's.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm a big fan and recommend this place! I visited Kenny's Smokehouse several times. Each time, service was lacking, but food was great. Last visit, I wrote an honest review and made a point of service...it wasn't "bad", but it just had so many miscues that it stuck out. Management took note and contacted me....that alone won me over. It's a retaraunt that "gets it"! My most rcent visit...I have to say, the service was good!
Th food has always been great and so filling! Drinks are unique and tasty. This place is popular..so you have a busy, sometimes loud dining and bar area...but it makes for great people watching!
Go and enjoy!

The food and staff were outstabdung. I had to change the number of people a few times amd it was nno problem.

MORE DESSERT PLEASE
Perhaps can add some forzen treats for dessert, i.e, gelato, ice cream, sorbet.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Kenny's smokehouse was delicious! We were with a party of 6 and all said "theirs" was the best. Between the brisket, sampler platter, salmon & trout, all were very good. The jalapeño appetizer is a must! Service was friendly & prompt. We'll go back for sure!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love anything Kenny does!!
Great Great Great BBQ!! The Beef ribs are my favorite... the meat falls off the bone! Worth the drive North! The wait staff is always friendly and eager to please! The noise level is loud so 4 people or less is best for conversation. Love the huge pepper grinder always brings a smile to everyones face!
We always leave full and content!
Thank You Kenny and staff!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic as always!
Great business lunch...awesome experience as always.

I've been there now about a dozen of times, never disappointng
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
Seated promptly and the wait staff did not need to flagged down for bev refills etc. Lighting was kinda dark. The coconut shrimp was excellent , mixed reviews on the stuff jalapenos.... everyone enjoyed their entrees. On the pricy side.....1 beef rib is $5...so a little crazy there. Thank you
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was outstanding
Had the ahi tuna salad and it was delicious. Other diners (visitors to the area) tried brisket and were wowed. Staff made us feel welcome and waitress was attentive without hovering. Will return and Kenny's will be at the top of my list for taking guests from out of town.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and the brisket
Great service and the brisket is fantastic! I would highly recommend Kenny's.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent ribs, pulled pork, jalapeno cheese sausage. Side dishes (often sadly mediocre at BBQ joints) are outstanding. Gouda mac and cheese exceptional.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about Kenny's Smoke House is outstanding

Another Gem in the Kenny the Chef dynasty. Keep them coming.

This restaurant was awesome! Can't wait to try the others in the chain! The food was absolutely delicious!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
was wonderful. My waitress was very helpful, and we had a very pleasant time. I had heard the food was great, but I didn't know what i wanted, so i ended up getting the sampler. to this day I still can't make up my mind on what my favorite is. The selection is wonderful, and the bar is great. This is a great date night restaurant, as well as a nice place to just go out and eat for not too much. definitely worth the money, not that it's expensive. it gets a bit busy on the weekends, so be prepared to reserve a table, but the management will make sure you leave happy at whatever expense. If you're looking for a good place to eat, Kenny's is at the top of my recommendations.

A Smokehouse that's is smoking hot!
This place is unmatched! Like all of Kenny's restaurants, the Smokehouse at Shops of Legacy delivers in all major categories. The food is fantastically delicious with a wide variety of options & price points. In keeping with Kenny's brand hot-spots, there's Grey Goose on tap (for real) & service that is impeccably detailed to every customer. It feels like a "you call it" spot where custom requests are not laughed at & the staff intentionally impresses the customers into a return visit. I can't think of a more unique smokehouse North of the Trinity River. There's been evident planning & care put into making the customer know they've had a five-star dining experience without all the stuffy silliness or costs. Take your boss, take a date!!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Food and Service!!!
The Food was Great! Service was Awesome too! We will definitely be back!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time at the smoke house and loved it! Location was great brisket stuffed jalapeños were amazing! You couldn't help but smile when tasting them! Smoked brisket was so tender you just needed the fork, great bread pudding with whiskey sauce! Definitely will return.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible Service and Food
The service was incredible, and the food even more so. There is nothing like the ribs and chicken combo. Oh, the flavor of the brisket, amazing. And whatever you do, save room for the cobbler.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the brisket sandwich. Not a fan of the mac & cheese. It was soupy. No beer on tap either. :-(
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and ambiance
The menu is short but the food is great. The meats are well prepared and the sides taste really good.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great with Meat
Good smoke house and great with meat. Can't dine outside though and booking table is a must.
If you don't like hickory BBQ or hickory at all, choices are very limited.
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delicious & Fun
I've been to the other Kenny's restaurants in the Dallas area, and yet again was impressed with the atmosphere, service and of course yummy food! The BBQ was delicious, great wine list ... awesome. Will definitely be back.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time was great. A repeat soon
Between 3 of us we had lean sliced beef, marbled sliced beef, ribs and cheddar sausage. All the meats were delicious and some of the best tasting in the whole metroplex. The sause was slightly vinegar tasting but it grows in you quickly. Add Kenny's BBQ ti your must try list. You won't be disappointed.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome As Always
Kenny continues to build amazing restaurants. His latest, the Smoke House, does not disappoint. The brisket tostados appetizer is a meal in and of itself. Kenny fills his menu with great barbecue, but also has some of his classics on there like his miso-glazed salmon.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, mixed with great
Great food, mixed with great service. Try the new cornbread, it's just the right amount of spicy and sweet!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your typical BBQ. Smokes meats were delicious. Bread pudding alone is enough to ensure a return trip.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we walked in, the person who sat us down (it seemed like a waiter, not the hostess, she wasn't around) gave us the lunch menu by accident. We showed up on Sunday at 4 pm so I thought it was different, but didn't question it. When our bill came, they charged us for dinner prices as they should have and I made them aware of what had happened but told them that if we received the dinner portions, we'd pay for dinner portions. They however, corrected the price back to lunch prices since they said it was a mistake on their part. Our waiter was great!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply great BBQ
I'm not an adventurous eater but I love me some BBQ brisket and the brisket sandwich and fries here does not disappoint! You know it's good when you get sad right around the last bite. I love that the sauce is a little tangy vs. just overly peppery like some other places I've been to. Tons of flavor without being super spicey. My friend had the sampler plate and seemed just as happy. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. I also like the feel of the space, the decor and the location. I like that it's BBQ in a nicer setting than the norm without being stuffy.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a fabulous time (as
We had a fabulous time (as always at Kenny's)! The food is absolutely delicious, i haven't tried anything there that hasn't been wonderful. We always suggest Kenny's to take others to because it has been dependable for service and food since the day it opened. Our waiter remembered us, even though we've only had him wait on us once before and he even remembered what we ordered and what wine we liked :) Excellent experience we will continue to eat at Kenny's as often as possible!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at Kenny's! The service was great, the food was great and the atmosphere was great! Will definitely go back.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I were 20 minutes late to our reservation, but the hostess was kind enough to put us "back in the system". We waited for maybe 10-15 minutes for the table and had wonderful service throughout the evening. I'm from out of town and was hungry for really good texas bar-b-que and I found it at Kenny's. Excellent brisket for me and chicken for my friend.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Tasty and huge portions
We visited Kenny's Smoke House after enjoying the other Kenny restaurants. Barbeque on STEROIDS! is the best way to describe it. Delicious, generous portions, They even have an option to do lighter versions of the entrees. It was very busy, energetic, and a bit too noisy for us, but definitely will plan on going again!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get the prime rib!
We ate at Kenny's for my husbands birthday and it was outstanding. My husband ordered the rosemary crusted prime rib that only left me with major order envy.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been to Kenny's various times. Took my dad who was visiting for the holiday and he loved it. Very picky eater who always looks for good beef ribs. Kenny's didn't disappoint. He even had leftovers which is rare! Their service is amazing, we had to wait a few for our server to come over which was not typical. The ability to modify, add, remove anything from your order makes this a heaven for those picky eaters who like to choose everything they get.
