Big Kenny's BBQ provides a different option for food in Key Largo, which is good. My experience and what I've heard from others is that the food is a little expensive for what it is. The people are nice. The food is adequate but nothing to rave about. Been there a couple times and mainly had the sandwiches at lunch so can't speak to what other entrees might be like. Just hasn't impressed me that much.

Having been to Mrs Macs we wanted to try somewhere for a real BBQ and were not disappointed. The pulled pork and brisket combo with corn bread and a home made slaw side was more than enough for the 2 of us. Meat was tender and tasty and Phil's home made BBQ sauce was awesome. Having said that, the meat could have been a bit hotter on delivery and if they spent some money on the place, they will make a killing.

Stopped by Kenny's on a Tuesday night. The place was a bit crowded for a Tuesday, but we did not wait for a table. This is a small, cozy place that once upon a time must have been a gas station. There was a 2 man musical act on this night playing cover songs. The guitarist/singer's name is Cody. I didn't catch the other guy's name. They were very good, playing crowd pleasers and added to the whole experience. I ordered the ribs and 1 dollar Pabst Blue Ribbon. That's right, they have 1 dollar 16 oz PBR's all day every day. The wife ordered the pulled pork sandwich. Ribs were excellent, they fell right off the bone and had a wonderful smokey flavor. The pulled pork was delicious as well. They have their own sauce, but I chose to go lightly because I didn't want to mask the smoky flavors. Overall this place is awesome. The food is well priced and the atmosphere is fun and playful. I'll definitely be back, most likely on a Tuesday to catch the music again.
