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.

Met after work & had made a reservation- greeted warmly, sat quickly. The menu options were as expected and excellent- our waiter was knowledgeable and had a wonderful disposition- even kidded with us - bread pudding with whiskey sauce was the bomb! Over all had a very pleasant experience.

We always enjoy Kenny's Smoke, especially for brunch! The menu is limited, but the options are delicious. Our server was phenomenal, and they even took care of a minor issue with our appetizer that came out late. We will continue to return!

The service was good. The value for the food quality was not really good. Very difficult to talk when other people are talking loud in the place. When the food came out it was lukewarm .

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.

I have been to Kenny’s several time and food has always been excellent, but this time with was not. We went on national prime rib day and paid $35 for the prime rib and it was tough and not good. I don’t know if there is a new chef but the food was subpar.

Highly recommend any of the Kenny's locations. I went with the BBQ Salmon with the loaded mashed potatoes. When it arrived, it didn't look like a whole lot of food, but it was plenty. Those loaded potatoes are heavenly. We also had a wedge salad, which is always incredible. My husband had the brisket and ribs - I tried and bite and both were delish. We said we weren't going to order dessert, but then our waiter (Stew) convinced us to try the peanut butter pie. Holy macaroni was that amazing. I could have skipped the salad and eaten that first. Ha! This is a great place to take that man in your life who complains about "fru fru" restaurants and how they never serve another food or meat. ;-)

We have eaten at Kenny’s smoke house numerous times. This was not as good as usual . We ordered the beef ribs and they had very little meat on them. The manager did bring more as the waiter discussed the issue with her.

Great bbq in N TX. If you want to wait in a long line for hours, pick up food cafeteria style, and eat off of paper plates with plastic silverware, dont go here. This is a sit down restaurant with real waiters and sub freezing martinis. The food was incredible and if you slowly sip your martini, the waiter would periodically come over and feel your glass, and if it got too warm he would bring a new chilled glass. Never saw this before! Would go here again in a heart beat. Only issue was parking, but we heard about this in advance and got dropped off so we didn’t have to worry about it. Best bbq ever!

We go to kennys restaurants all the time Friday night we went to kennys Italian so when I got the text about $1 mimosas we thought let’s go to the smoke house Sunday. Wow it was not up to par and anything what we expect from a kennys establishment!! Everything started great but started to go downhill, we ordered drinks and asked about the Benedict’s. First 2 rounds of mimosas came out together after that it was staggered and a pretty long wait they ran out of glasses, maybe don’t send out text until ur ready for clientele?!? Food came his wrong they gave him the brisket plate not Benedict so I ate mine which was good the sausage scramble. I swear it took almost 20 minutes for my husband to finally get his meal even after asking nothing was rushed. I was finished with mine now he got to eat alone :( the waiter never even came back to check on us until my husband was finished eating. Oh did I mention his food was cold the poached egg had sat so long it wasn’t runny but what to do he was starving. Poor service, bad communication, cold food equals crappy Sunday brunch!!!!
