Good quality food. Really enjoyed the pulled pork and jalapeno cornbread. Baked beans have a good smokey flavor. Maybe it's a Louisiana thing, but I was disappointed to not see potato salad or smoked/barbecued chicken on the menu. Overall, a good experience. Key lime pie...was the perfect finish!More

Another great Kenny’s location. Food was great. Service and staff great as usual. A little pricey. Always appreciate the quality of food and friendly service.

We had a wonderful dinner at Kenny's this week with a friend from France who'd never had BBQ. It was our first visit to the Smokehouse. Our friend sampled pork ribs, beef ribs, brisket and several sides. He cleaned his plate! A really big hit...for all of us were the sides... the cole slaw, smoked gouda mac & cheese and the totally amazing collard greens!!! We'll return, and on our next visit, we'll try the brussels sprouts, loaded mashed potatoes and of course, we'll order more collard greens with our BBQ! Try Kenny's Burger Joint when you need a burger "fix!" Outstanding!!!More

The food is good, service was good and the Happy Hour drinks are well priced. Good for a quick late lunch.

This is my second and last visit to Kenny's Smoke House. It's a nice looking place that fits with all the Kenny restaurants (Italian, Burger and Grill). The small restaurant is located inside the Shops of Legacy East next to Bob's Chop House. A huge...parking garage is available in back with about a one block walk to the front door. My main issue with this restaurant is the service. It's so slow. We were seated at 12:24 to a full restaurant. Our order was not taken until 12:43. The food arrived at 1:00 PM. It was a full 35 minutes of sitting around. Often our drinks sat empty during that long wait. I liked the food. The sausage sampler with the two sauces was enjoyed by the whole table. The brisket was cooked correctly, but it did not have much in the way of flavoring from seasoning, smoking or injections. The waffle fries, load mashed potatoes, smoked gouda mac n cheese, and house salad were just okay. The local craft beer options were awesome and much appreciated. With the price point set so high, I want to be blown away by the flavors. I would rather visit Lockhart, Hutchins, Pecan Lodge or Hard 8.More

This restaurant is in a strip shopping center. The food was good. The BBQ sauce was good. But be warned it isn’t like your typical BBQ restaurants. In this place you will see sides like Brussels sprouts, mac n cheese, loaded mashed potatoes. While they...do serve coke slaw, you won’t find potato salad or just plan pinto beans. The cornbread is just ok but here’s the thing you have to pay $5.99 for cornbread. Don’t waste your money on that. Service was good.More

Husband and I up all night after eating dinner here. My chopped beef sandwich was barely edible. Charrred remains of meat. Sampler platter offered large portions but who knows what made us sick. Beware.

I was in the Plano area twice for business and both times had the opportunity to eat at Kenny’s Smokehouse. I am a huge fan of Texas BBQ and Kenny’s is the real deal. I had a friend who is a Plano native who joined...me one night. He is just as much of a BBQ fan as I and he confirmed that Kenny’s is legit. The ribs and brisket are smoked to perfection. Their collard greens and smoked wings were great also. The wait staff was really helpful and attentive. If you are in the Plano area and you are looking for some good BBQ I would highly recommend Kenny’sMore

Just before we catch our plane one last meal. And wow, so tender you dont need a knife. So tasty the sauces provided are great but not necessary. Our hostess was beautiful, great personality and very helpful, she even gave us a sample of the...collard greens to try. Happy to help out with gluten free options and the price, for what you get fantastic.More

The service and atmosphere were great. I enjoyed the salmon salad, however my husband wasn’t as thrilled with his brunch dish. He complained about it being a little much that it was very smokey flavored. I’d go again, but I think my husband would pass....If you’re a huge BBQ fan and love it on everything you’d probably like this place, if not you might want to try something else.More
