Ahhh, Kenny’s. One of the best places to eat in Dallas, hands down.
I could probably write all day about Kenny’s restaurants. This is the first restaurant that I was exposed to from Kenny. The “Kenny’s” restaurants (collectively) are essentially my second (possibly first) favorite place to eat in Dallas. While it is a bit on the expensive side, for a chef-style meal, this is probably the most bang for your buck you’ll get in Dallas. Worth EVERY penny. Breaking things down:
Atmosphere: Sleek. Sexy. Kind of darkish. Overall, pretty awesome. It does get pretty loud at peak hours, though.
Service: Wait staff is prompt and do a very good job.
Food: Frickin’ AWESOME. I’ve never had a bad meal at Kenny’s, and I’ve been a NUMBER of times. Probably my favorite things here are:
-Appetizer: The Brie Cheese Fondue at Dinner
-Free Appetizer: They’ll always bring you a popover at dinner. (I’m not sure if they do at lunch, though.) These are awesome, and fun to eat in the aforementioned brie cheese fondue.
-Wine: I recommend the Conn Creek. Expensive, but quite good.
-Meal: You can pretty much throw a dart at the menu and you’ll get something awesome. My favorite thing on the menu is the steak sandwich. The meat is juicy and tender (my mouth is watering just thinking about it). It’s got just the right amount of topping, an awesome bun, and the sauces that come with it are top-friggin-notch. Especially the homemade horsey sauce. Mmmmm…. that stuff is FANTASTIC. I’ve had other things here (also amazing) but I can’t think of them off the top of my head.
-Side Dish: There’s two that I usually go between, because there’s a couple that are worth mentioning. My two favorites are the french fries (quite possibly the best in DFW), and the adult Mac & Cheese.
-Dessert: The bread pudding is legendary. Get it and you won’t be disappointed.
Overall – GREAT restaurant. I’d love to have my picture on the wall of Kenny’s.
