One of the few Ribbon joints in the area, it's my favorite. Always seasoned, flavorful and filling, if you want BBQ, Kenny's is where to go..

Having had past good experiences with Kenny's Rib Tips, Chicken, and Soul Food; and seeing a Groupon for a slab of Baby Back Ribs w/Fries, Bread, and Cole Slaw, I thought I would try them. Unfortunately, they were not the best for several reasons: 1) the quality of the meat, 2) the meat was a bit overcooked, even slightly burned... More

Spent $15 for a large rib tip and they were burnt, almost inedible. I was so upset, but has already gotten to far to go back and get a refund. It smells great, but that where it stops for me.

Yesterday, I had a craving for barbeque so I ventured to Kenny’s Ribs & Chicken in Lansing, Illinois to quench my craving. Kenny’s has been around in the same location for many years. It is somewhat a landmark. On arrival the place was clean, quiet, and four people seated at two different tables enjoying their barbeque. There was one lady... More

The ribs were great and the sauce was wonderful. We got the rib tips and they were ok I thought they were fatty and not a lot of meat. The coleslaw was good too.

I thought the ribs and rib tips were okay. They are a bit high and you do get a lot for your money, but not as good as they are all making it out to be. However the catfish was really good. I wish we had ordered more catfish. For those tartar sauce lovers they don't carry it. I guess... More

Kenny's has the best ribs and sauce. The prices are a little high, but worth it. You cannot go wrong on any of their other offerings.
