Wonderful. They have many other items on menu that are not BBQ. Good for me because I don't like to eat a lot of red meat. Had the house smoked salmon appetizer. Excellent.

First time to visit and it was full of out of town sports fans. We sat at a table for 2 but were so close to the table of 6 beside us, it felt claustrophobic.

If it is all about an upscale ambiance, and some killer sides, check out Kenny's.

But with the sheer quantity of great smoked meat joints in DFW, Kenny's Smokehouse wouldn't be in our first set of choices if we were looking for some great brisket, ribs, and sausage.

My husband & I really enjoy coming to this restaurant. We started coming right before we got married and now we come for our anniversary each year. This was our first visit where our orders came out entirely wrong (they were short-staffed & on a holiday no less), but the waitstaff fixed it quickly and even gave us a coupon voucher for our next visit! If you don't try anything else, I highly recommend the brisket stuffed jalepeño poppers! Easily the best item on the menu!

Kenny's Smoke House is one of a collection of very good restaurants in the DFW area. We have had wonderful meals here - a favorite of mine is the salad with brisket.

Our waiter was outstanding. We had just visited Three Forks the evening before....the waiter was a mess, the food overpriced and boring. The next night at Kenny’s we had an amazing waiter, great tasting food and it didn’t cost us an arm and a leg. Thanks Kevin and Kenny.

The waitress, Nicole, was amazing. The chicken tenders were so good. The beef ribs were a little over cooked, but the pork ribs were perfect. For this reason, it was just shy of outstanding. But I'll still go back for more...and I'll ask for Nicole.

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
