If you need you McKenna's fix - HURRY UP!! For whatever reason they are closing the doors by the end of September. Met my wife there tonight for one more "10 Hour Brisket" sandwich. Was almost hoping I could get a 55 gallon drum of the BBQ sauce to last me a week or two at home!!! Will be VERY... More

Entering reminds you of a Louisiana bar . Rib platters come filled with enough to eat and for the hungry full .Barbeque tastes great, good sauce. Music is played I believe during the week ends , or nights . Value for your money is exceptional.

Well, I went to this place about two months ago and was shocked at how AWFUL it was. The ribs were like eating beef jerky, to the point that it actually scratched the inside of my mouth eating it. A friend had brisket and there is NO WAY it was cooked properly as it was like eating dry, tasteless cheap... More

Brisket was very dry, over-cooked and trimmed too lean. Done right that ribbon of fat should be like butter. No fat at all. ? The flavor was almost dull, lacking a smoke-ring. The BBQ sauce - only one offered - was nothing special. The BBQ beans were terrible, simply did not taste good. The red beans and rice were good... More

Our server was the sweetest ever, but we didn't come for the service. The pulled pork tasted like it was crock pot pork and the brisket was too tough to ever imagine it was done for 10 hours. NOT GOOD

Love the 10 hour brisket sandwich!!! My absolute favorite! The sauce.... I could drink it with my beer, instead of my beer!! Love it for a business lunch, my son loved the corn on the cob. Wore much of it on his face, so I know he enjoyed it!

Good place. Badwich with fries is my move. Food is good, but consistency in quality is an issue sometime. All in all, I would recommend.

Food is great but the music is a little loud. They gave us half off our bill because no one attended to us within 15 minutes of sitting down.

This place has been around a long time. The new owner has stayed with the same recipes and that is good . The ribs are tender smokey and meaty. Red cabbage slaw is one of a kind. This is my go to rib spot

The food is great and so is the atmosphere. We had a family birthday at the restaurant and they weren't super busy, but our server treated us as if she was too busy for us. She was sarcastic, slow, and had a general poor attitude. This was our first time eating at McKenna's and it sucks that this was the... More
