We are a family of 4 and ate the Family Pack of chicken. Our young girls loved it so much they ate two pieces. We loved the sweet biscuits with honey. The fries are fresh and crinkled. Make sure you have time to wait on...More

I've been eating there since I was in high school. I met my husband there! Kenneys is famous around here. Try their sauce burger, or their SMO-pickle-cheese! They make their own coleslaw, and deep fry the best chicken. The also make home-made milkshakes! I do...More

One of my go-to places in Lexington. The restaurant is fairly quaint, but the food is divine! Also relatively inexpensive. The chicken is always hot and fresh, and the sides are quite tasty as well. If you're a fried chicken fan, this is the place...More

There's no fried chicken (that I have found) that can hold a candle to Kenney's. Their deep fried biscuits are the excellent companion. Most people put honey on one while it's hot. Kenney's is also known for their sauce burger. I'm ashamed to say that...More

Yummy casual food like sauce burgers and hot dogs ordered a la carte in an old-fashioned fast food environment. Service does not proceed at fast food speed--but the wait is worth it. Can eat inside or outside. Prices quite reasonable. As other reviews also clearly...More
