Rainy night so light crowd. Service was attentive but respectful. Great brisket salad and pulled pork. Spring for the smoked Gouda Mac.

The food was great as usual and the waiter was very good, but we had a 7:00 reservation for two on Open Table and we were there on time, but had to wait 35 minutes and finally got our table at 7:35. We could have just walked in and got our name on the list if we wanted to wait. We had already had a couple of happy hour drinks at another restaurant very close by and was ready to eat. If we knew we had another 35 minutes to wait at Kenny’s, then we would have just remained at the other restaurant and ate at the bar. That’s why we got reservations. When this happens it defeats the value of Open Table.

My boyfriend and I are here with the mutual love of bbq. We started with the jalapeño cheddar sausage which was delicious. We each ordered a cocktail that took a little too long to receive seeing as how the resturant was not busy at the time (late dinner), however I know how it goes with cleaning and ending the night. Sadly they were out of the turkey breast so I ordered the half chicken because I always have a back up! My side was the Mac n cheese which was to die for, might have been the truffle oil or the ham pieces throughout... not sure. My boyfriend ordered spare ribs and brisket with their featured side of cream corn. Ribs were delicious, brisket... eh.. seemed to be sporadically fatty and/or burnt with each bite. Corn was niceley seasoned however the corners themselves seemed lacking, must have been the end of the pot which again late night expectancies. The value of his dish seemed overpriced to me (about $22) my half bbq chicken and side seemed more reasonable (about $15). I will say the portions are generous but consistency is lacking (e.g pace of service, food taste). Overall great choice for bbq but Don’t splurge ;)

We are regulars here. Today our waiter informed us we are VIP's because we review the restaurant on Open Table. Who know?

Always love Kenny’s! Because I’m on my ‘healthy eating plan’, I had to be pretty selective so I tried the salmon salad and it was so good! I’m very fond of the pulled pork but I would definitely order the salmon salad again.

We have one more Kenny's to try. Based on the experiences with the others, we were super excited to find yet another way to enjoy Kenny's! We made a last minute decision to have an early dinner and decided to give the Smokehouse a try ... I mean what's the risk? It's Kenny's. From the time we walked in to the time we walked out we were once again enjoying Kenny's food and hospitality! I was torn between Beef ribs and pulled pork. Logan, our server, suggested that I have a little of each! I told him I wasn't a big eater ... so he offered the lunch menu which was just the perfect amount. The ribs were incredible. The pulled pork was sooooo tender. My husband had brisket and is anxious to get back to Kenny's for more. And he didn't stop eating the mac and cheese until it was gone! If you haven't been to a Kenny's you need to go. Just pick one ... any one ... you will really have a great experience.

Great BBQ food! And I LOVE that this is full service, unlike many of the "go thru the line" places.

The food was outstanding. A must order item is the jalapeño cornbread - it is the best you will experience. The only thing that prevented a higher rating was the interior lighting. It was way too dim. We could barely see our food.

This is one of my husband's favorite resturants. Our birthday is on the same day. I surprised him with a limo ride to Kenny's Smoke House. We were joined by another couple who was celebrating their 50th year anniversary. They will definitely be back!

This is one of our favorite, recurring places for barbecue, and the first time that our food was not perfect.

Brisket was dry, beef ribs were overcooked, with almost no meat, a cardinal sin in Texas, and the law allows you to slap the chef in such cases. The "Foo Tini" cocktail was a horrible miss -
expensive and insipid. On the other hand, smoked salmon was impeccable, sausage, pulled pork, and pork ribs were tender, tasty, almost perfect, and, OH, that jalapeño corn bread is to die for. Very, very, very nice selection of draft beers. Our waitress was one of the most professional we have ever known, always provides for a delightful experience, she should train others.

Sincerely hope that manages puts a little extra care in the kitchen, we are sure that our next visit will be much, much better. Will DEFINITELY go back, thoroughly recommend.

We had someone in the group who was Vegan and wanted a Cesar salad, however Cesar is not an option on their menu. The manager went to a local establishment and purchased a salad from them and brought it back for the person in our party. The fact that they went out of their way was a big deal and they do this often it appears according to our waiter. Any establishment that goes out of their way for their patrons should be visited often.
