“Once inside and smell the aromas you know this is good Southern Barbeque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

There are two Barbeque locations for Ken's, both of them in Lake City. I prefer the Margaret street location off I-75, Exit 434 where 47 meets main street gong in to Lake City only because after 3 years of eating here I've gotten to know the people who prepare and serve the food. My preference is the "working man (woman's) lunch which includes a sliced beef or pork sandwich, french fries and a drink in the $6 range. Plenty of seating, a down home atmosphere and incredible service makes this another unsung local Lake City gem. 3 different sauces are available and so popular you can take some home with you when you leave. Besides barbeque, the rest of their menu is excellent and I always take my friends and family to Ken's when they visit. If you are looking to travel and experience local food, this is another location popular with locals and tourists once they find it. Great take out window for quick trips for food. Highly recommend Kens. Finding local restaurants certainly has it's benefits. Enjoy!

“Great BBQ and lots of it ....cheap !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2009

Stoped in for dinner on the way to Florida and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.
I ordered the large serving of Ribs,Pork,Beef,Sausage and Chicken.along with baked beans and french fries.
More than I could possibly eat, Huge servings, and all for $10.00.
Tender BBQ sliced paper thin, Sauce was good (I prefered the hot stuff) Perhaps a little Vinegar based when I really prefer the sweeter type, but still really good.
The Baked beans were probably the BEST I EVER HAD, little chunks of barbecue cooked in the beans, OH MAN, superb eating !
