The food was really good. The service was great. We had two toddlers and a baby with us and they were cheerful about the extra work required. It was a lovely experience.

Never met Kenny but everything we tried was over the top from what we expected! Go on Sunday and get the smoked prime rib. OMG!

Unfortunately, we did not have the usual great visit at Kenny's. It appeared that our drinks were made somehow differently (pitcher of champagne mimosa...mostly orange juice). Again, it looked as though they did not use their typical one bottle of champagne because it seemed as though we were drinking straight orange juice. We got there at 1:30pm and brunch ends at 2pm so maybe the champagne ran low. We have been there several times for brunch and the mimosas were definitely not the same as usual. A bit disappointed...not a mimosa but orange juice in a champagne glass.

Great food, drink. We booked a table, but I guess there were lots of bookings for Friday night ... we were seated at the very back of the restaurant in the family dining section ... no big problem, but it would have been much nicer up front of the place. Our server was excellent too!

Not only was all the food fantastic, and I got the sampler and sampled all of it, the server, Mason was pretty much the best server I've ever had anywhere!

Try the collard greens. Try the wings. Try the brisket. Try the pulled pork. Try the beef ribs. Try the spare ribs. All yummy AF.

Keto friendly and accommodating.

The service was very slow. We had a 6:00 reservation because we had a 7:10 movie to catch and at 6:45 we were still waiting on our food, which was a salad and sandwich. We ordered a second drink from the bar, but it took so long we were unable to finish them. I have been here before and had wonderful service, but you would think at 6:00 on a Friday it wouldn't take close to an hour to get a salad and sandwich. We will go back, but this was not our best experience at Kenny's.

The people who work here are great. The food is consistently great and we're always welcomed with a cheerful face. We go frequently on Sunday nights for their $1 tacos special. They are small tacos, but the sauce they use makes them fabulous and some of the best tacos I've had. Everything they serve is great.

When we walked in the hostess was so welcoming. Our server was extremely nice and knowledgable. The food was delicious too. My husband and I shared the sampler and added 2 extra sides and cornbread. It was definitely more than enough and we had leftovers. The brisket and the pork ribs were so tender! My husband loved the sausage and the loaded mashed potatoes. The collards were tasty but we didn't care much for the mac n cheese. Overall it was a great experience.

This was my first time here. I invited a business guest and he was very pleased I had chosen Kenny's because of his prior experiences with the chain. I ordered the brisket and it was good, not "Fort Worth great." The service was excellent. Be aware that parking can be a challenge at this location.

My only knock on this place is the layout of the restaurant and how it's furnished... when people come from out of town a lot of them want Texas BBQ and while the food & service are second to none, the atmosphere and restaurant layout could use a style makeover.

I went to Kenny's Smokehouse for the first time recently, to celebrate my birthday. I was joyously greeted by the host Colleen who was super bubbly and funny. I mentioned to her it was my birthday and she immediately sent our waiter over to get us started. Travis was awesome! Super helpful, quick and overall great service. He hooked me up with a super strong drink, comped 2 deserts and sent the manager, Sylvia, over after our meal to chat. She wished me a happy birthday and gave me a $15 gift card!! Overall great service and food. Will be back!

Brisket tostados are amazing - the brisket in general is perfection, let’s be real. BUT - I cannot rave about HOW PERFECT THE BRUSSELS SPROUTS ARE!!! I could easily order two sides of the sprouts and leave perfectly happy and satisfied. In regards to service, Shane was an exceptional server. He had great suggestions, a good amount of humor, and was very attentive.

My best friend and I were looking for a new place to eat lunch. I have eaten at each of the other Kenny's locations and I have always had a good experience. I read a few poor reviews when I was considering this restaurant, but ignored them, since the other Kenny's locations had been great and this restaurant had so many 4 and 5 star reviews. I wish I had listened to those poor reviews, because if you know good BBQ, Kenny's will be a disappointment.

Since neither of us had eaten at Kenny's Smokehouse before, we thought it would be fun to share different foods. The truffle mac and cheese was sent back. It was not the creamy, cheesy texture that I look for in a good mac and cheese and it did not have enough seasoning and too much truffle oil. The brisket jalapeno poppers and brussel sprouts were just okay. The loaded mashed potatoes were very good. However the meat trio we tried had one winner and two losers. We really liked the pork ribs, but the pulled pork was bland and dry, and the brisket was fair. The chocolate pecan pie we had for dessert was okay, but too sweet for my taste.
