“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Went with a group. The food was good & so was the service. Nice decor with old time signs & items from the past on the walls & shelves. Wide screen TV's on the walls. A Christian restaurant & not open on Sundays. Was busy & that's always a good sign.

“Not too thrilled”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Was disappointed, food was dry and for the money they don't give you very much. The service was good. Did not have to wait long for our food.

“BBQ Chicken was really good !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Last night 6 of us met for dinner at Ken's BBQ on Main St. We were quickly given a nice large table and our drink orders were taken. I ordered the half chicken with baked beans and the baked potatoes. It also came with 2 slices of toast. The chicken was delicious, moist and had a good smoky taste to it. Our server was very sweet and patient as some of our group are elderly and had many questions/requests. The restaurant was very accommodating to their special needs. It was a very pleasant dining experience and we will be returning in the near future. If I were to make one suggestion it would be that you also had baked sweet potatoes on the menu...after all this is the south.

“Nice Find Off I 75”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Ken's Bar-b-Que was a great find off the highway. The food is good, especially the southern style green beans. Service, excellent. All the gals had their hair tied back--a plus for me. I don't like hair hanging down when they bend over the table or carry food. We'll make it a point to time our passing for a good meal.
