Old school BBQ - great options, low cost and fresh quality. Try the Brunswick stew and pork sandwiches. This place has been around forever - it consistent and worth the visit.

We avoid franchises when possible and look for pickup trucks and cop cars in the parking lot, and this fit the bill. Good food, friendly prompt service, clean. Not outstanding but good. We'd come back here rather than the surrounding fast food places.

The food is good... Sonny's is a bit better, but the service is great. Food comes super fast and is well portioned.

Simple and very tasty bbq. All the sides are great but my favorite is the green beans. They have a variety of items beside bbq, including a good kids selection.

A great selection of quality bbq. Try the sides they are fantastic. Good selection for the kids. Stick to the bbq vs the steaks because that's what they do best

The BBQ here is pretty average. Sometimes their chicken is good and moist, sometimes, it is terribly dry. I do love their sweet tea and the fries are really good. We mainly go here to see friends.

There are 3 Ken's BBQ in Lake City, We prefer the Ken's BBQ on South 41. The BBQ is middle of the road, I do like their smoked chicken dinner. The wait staff are all great and the prices are very reasonable. The BBQ salad is also very good. They have daily specials.
