Ken's is a good pizza place, with average to above average quality and reasonable prices, especially for lunch. We eat there every few months, and always leave satisfied with the food and prices.

Something has changed. The food was mediocre at best. The selections were few. Dirty tables and floor.

Our family usually eats here once every few weeks. We are always greeted with a smile and asked if we have any requests. The salad bar has so many options and the best Ranch dressing which I love. There have been a few times we have gone in and there was pizza that had been sitting a while but majority... More

They have a great buffet with a nice salad bar. Only downside to this place is they need a major overhaul. It could use a great big renovation!

I have been going to this place ever since I was a kid and it is still the great pizza place from my childhood. With the freshest salad bar in town and some great pizza, they don't fail to switch it up on the weekdays with Tex-Mex Tuesdays and and Wing Wendsday! Definitely a great place to enjoy some good...

Realize that this is an all you can eat for $9 pizza and salad place. We ate here at 7pm on a Saturday night. The salad was fine and seemed fresh. The pizza, when fresh from the oven, was fair - again what I'd expect at this price. There was older pizza out that was kinda nasty. The pasta was... More

Stopped in for a quick bite while seeing a relative at ETMC. Wait staff said buffet was open & ready to go. Asked if we had any request for pizza toppings, I responded plain cheese or any veggies. It seemed odd to be asked & then only mega meat pizzas were put out. As I was paying the bill, pasta,... More

Staff was very attentive & asked me if there was any pizza I would like on the buffet. Everything was amazing.

Was traveling through Athens and stopped at Ken's Pizza Parlor... it had been 30 years since I had even seen a Ken's Pizza. When we entered the restaurant I felt like I had intruded on sacred ground. I took several minutes for the waitress to get to our table even though she wasn't busy. The staff was horrible and the... More
