Our 1st visit a year ago was a disaster. I was looking forward to smoked prime but got smoked gristle. My dates pork ribs seemed to be on the warming table too long.
Had to give it another try cause the thought of prime rib just stayed on my mind and couldn't be that bad again. Our server, Hayley, couldn't have been nicer, convincing us to try a couple brisket jalapenos "on her". Excellent recommendation-we took an order home. She went out of her way to make sure everything we got was top notch and that nothing was lacking. The meal was well-paced, drinks were refilled timely. She contributed to a very nice enjoyable evening.
Thank you Hayley, we're sure we will be back and hope that you will still be there

Food was good but the service sucked. Not a recommendation for sure.

We arrived and we were immediately shown too our table but then waited 15 mins for a server to come to us. After ordering water, drinks and an appetizer the water and appetizer showed up 10 mins before our drinks.

The plates were cleared then we waited another 25 mins before the server took out main course order.

Food was good but service sucked and the server didn’t care.

Go for the food but not the dining experience

If you haven't tried BEEF ribs then you're missing out. Kenny's is our go to for this and their BBQ sauce is delicious. We always make it a point to bring family and friends visiting from out of town here for a dinner.

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!
