Everytime I am in town, eating at Ken's is a must. They offers tasty barbeque sandwiches along with onion rings....Don't forget the ranch. The staff are always polite and the food wait is minimal.

Good Florida style BBQ - offers large dishes at reasonable price. Different selections of BBQ sauce, ribs, beef and chicken. Highly recommend for those wanting BBQ within the area - they been around for decades because they know what there doing...

We had lunch here today and it was some of the best BBQ I've eaten. I love the sauce and ranch dressing. You can even buy the ranch dressing to enjoy at home. The sliced pork was moist and juicy...not dry at all like some other places we know of! ;-) I'd highly recommend this restaurant!

Good food and good prices. The place is clean and nicely decorated. Fast service. Would have liked to see deeper smoke rings in the meat. Staff is very nice. We are happy we stopped.

We eat here often--either dine-in or take-out. The food taste and portions are consistently good. The servers are very friendly and outgoing. Their sweet tea is always good!!

The waitress we had got our orders promptly and brought our food out to us in a timely matter. The food tasted wonderful (both of us got the turkey). The waitress kept... More

The BBQ here is average, but it is a local place where you go to see people you know. They have really good sweet tea and I like their French Fries. Sometimes the chicken is moist and sometimes very tiny, dry pieces. The hamburger is okay.

Barbeque was good. Service was quick and good. No complaints. They did not have desserts and that was a big deal to my wife but the barbeque was as good as any I have had. Meats are cooked without the sauce and you apply sauce at table (like Sonny's).
