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.

This was the second time we have been to Kenny's Smoke house, but it won't be the last.
Outstanding service, and great food.

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.

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.

EXCELLENT!! We went for brunch on Sunday to have a "do-over" of our anniversary, and it was amazing! Our server, Vaden was incredible and attentive. He made recommendations and listened to what we wanted. The food was absolutely delicious, and Vaden even surprised us with a dessert with candles! We were very touched and appreciated the incredible service. We will definitely be back!

We chose this location for our anniversary. My husband loved it all, and I thought it was very good. We were surrounded by other tables, so much so that we kept getting people running into us and there were screaming babies nearby. Overall it wasn't a romantic dinner, but the food was good.

My 3rd or4th time at this place. Always an A+ experience. The jalapeno sausage is superb and the smoked meats are to die for. Had the onion rings for first time. Very good. The service is always friendly and the food always get to us very fast.

Great BBQ and crispy brussel sprouts. My husband had the BBQ sampler, which he said he'd order any of it again. He also admitted that my brussel sprouts were better than his collard greens.

This was my third time at Kenny's but my first time being a little disappointed with it. We had a reservation and we're sat promptly. It took a while for our waiter to come over and it wasn't that busy (Sunday around 5:30). When we ordered drinks it took over 10 minutes for two margaritas, a beer, and a coke. We got our appetizer before the drinks which is ridiculous. The food never disappoints, however they were out of brussel sprouts which is a menu favorite in my family. I got the collards instead and they were just ok. We'll definitely be back and hope that the service is better next time.

I love all of the Kenny's restaurants. This one is outstanding. I usually get the grilled salmon, and my only complaint is that there are sometimes no green veggies available. Yesterday, they were out of Brussels sprouts and didn't have a back-up. Still a great place though for sure. My friends ordered from the brunch menu and were really pleased.
