The wait is worth it!

Put your name in and head down to Cheese and Crack and snack on a biscuit with jam. The Oven fired pizza is delicious-any flavor. Caesar salad easily feeds 2-3 people to start.

We've been to Ken's two times in the past three years. Tonight's visit was a flat line. The vegetable plate was soaked in oil and vegetables were mush. ..overcooked. Salads were very good but please list all ingredients for vegans-sake. Cheese was sprinkled into the garden salad but not included in the menu description. Finally. ..I've been a big Fan... More

I had never tired wood-fired pizza until eating at Ken's. I already love pizza but I did not realize it could be elevated to this level.

All if have to say is that I am not much of a meat eater and I loved the sausage and fennel pizza. Fantastic! Can't wait to go again!

We had a group of four at 6 p.m. and it was a 45 minute wait. The restaurant is very small and there is not very much room to wait for your table. And be prepared to sit with other people at your table. There were not a lot of vegetarian pizza options. We ordered the Margherita and Arugula pizza... More

The pizza was delicious, especially the thin crispy crusts. Toppings ranged from classic to more adventurous choices. I would recommend getting the vegetable plate to start, it's interesting and delicious. Service was laid back, helpful, and great. The atmosphere was relaxed, casual, and effortlessly cool. The only thing I might change was the seating, my party of 3 was seated... More

The temps were freezing in Portland, but this Phoenix native had a warm welcome with excellent service! The food was unique. The bacon pizza with a side of arugula was amazing. (The server recommended the side which was spot on!). My husband loved the calamari, and the extra taster of the gelato was very thoughtful. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Set aside your typical American expectations for pizza. These are made carefully, and you watch every step. The dough is tossed, the toppings (more on these later) are put on, and the pie is put into the wood oven. The result is good (although, in my opinion, not stellar). Our group had one with just tomato sauce, cheese and a... More

I recently met a friend here for a quick lunch and we were not disappointed. The lentil soup was hearty and flavorful! My salad was fresh and delicious! The bread was excellent. The staff was a little cold but warmed up after we ordered. I would recommend a visit!
