What a great place for breakfast or lunch. Kendall"s is a throwback which you will enjoy. All of their menu items are freshly prepared, breakfast choices are exceptional. If you like home fried potatoes there are none better, make sure you have them with onions...More

Found this restaurant on the web while searching breakfast locations in the area. Wanted to try someplace new. Stopped for breakfast the food was excellent as was the service. Slightly off the beaten path, but definitely worth the stop.

Definitely the best breakfast place I have been to since moving to the Midwest from New England, I loved all the homemade food and the terrific service. Pretty from the outside? No. Worth stopping for? Definitely.

We go here often for our Sunday breakfast. The many dishes are named for the Kendall family. Great biscuits and hash browns at good prices. Bring cash since they donot take credit cards. The skillets and omellettes are wonderful and all for a good price.

Started eating here because my son's name is Kendall. Well, I love it. Reminds me of a 1940s or 1950s diner. The food is always good and you get a lot. Breakfast is my favorite and the soup.

If you are looking for atmosphere and ambience this ain't it. It is a retro diner with glazed tile blocks and tile floor. It ain't pretty but the food is pretty good. This is not the place to take anyone you want to impress. I...More
