As usual the food and service was great. It was a birthday dinner and they provided complementary dessert for birthday boy and a gift certificate. First rate

If you're in Texas this is not the place to go for BBQ. Who cuts up your ribs for you?
Expensive for the amount of food. Brussel sprouts side dish was very good however.

I'm a frequent flyer at Kenny's other locations and was meeting a buddy for dinner. I figured it was two guys, let's try Kenny's Smoke House. Started with a martini and the pork tostadas and they were pretty good. We both ordered the "smoked" prime rib. The meal arrived and they must have thought the meat was really tender because we weren't given a knife to cut our beef. Once we worked that out, we dug in. We both shared the same comments: the prime rib was tough and tasteless. (Notice earlier I used "smoked"?) There was NO smoked flavor to that piece of prime rib. Absolutely BORING. With my entree, I had the loaded mashed potatoes. They were very good. My friend had the baked beans and he didn't like them. Overall, I was disappointed. I've come to expect more from a Kenny's.

We love Ben and his heartfelt dedication to his customers. We grew to love him through him praying with our family several months ago. He held hands with us and ask if he could pray over us and didn’t even know us... now we walk in and everyone knows if Ben is working we want to be in his section. Everyone in Kenny’s is always great to us. Food is always great! This is our weekly dinner place to go😍

Dined Fourth of July. There is no wait. Our server was prompt and very personable - Ryker. Brisket and ribs were delicious. Ribs were falling off the bone. Brussels sprouts were delicious for those of us who like brussels sprouts. Greens were good, but I prefer a little more spice. Another in our party thought they were the best greens ever.
Drinks were refilled promptly. I asked them to box up the one rib that I had left. Someone came back with my to go box and they had added an extra rib. They said I couldn't be sent home with just one rib. Very nice! This was the first time, at this Kenny's establishment, for all of us. We will be back!

Fantastic BBQ and great service. One of the only “sit down and order” BBQ places in town. Kenny’s is among my favorite restaurants period, as well one of my favorite BBQ places. Come hungry...you won’t leave that way!

After brief wait (no surprise on Father's Day Sunday) we had a fantastic meal. Felt a little sorry for those without reservations who had to wait longer, but that's what open table is for! Everyone was happy - picky teen, picky grandma and bbq loving mom and dad. Even had leftovers to take home due to generous portions. Logan was very attentive and friendly server. It's a shame they don't have room to expand the restaurant.

One of our favorite restaurants - this time on a Sunday afternoon when smoked 1/2 chickens are still available. Outstanding service, a good variety on the menu and staff that will mix and match to the patron's liking. Another one of Kenny's excellent choices.
