“Really Good Food”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

For my nieces christening, my brother in law had Kenny’s food for the event. Everything was really good. Loved the sides, especially the collards, dill and garlic potatoes, and the coleslaw. The chopped pork was also awesome. Spicy sauce was tangy, not hot, and I prefer a little more heat. It did have a really good taste. Needless to say, we will coming home with take out the next time we are in DC. I can’t speak to the atmosphere or service personally, but my sister in law had no issues.

“Potential for so much more.”
Reviewed 14 November 2009

This place could be a goldmine if somebody did it right. Thousands of people within just a few blocks, very few competitors, unique cuisine for the area...yet it just seems like people are coming to work, throwing something into the pot, slinging it out on a plate and then heading home. I live right around the corner and don't go more that once every two-three months.

All that said, many of the sides are good, and, when it is fresh(which it sometimes isn't) the BBQ is good.

Somebody BUY it...

“DC Barbecue At Its FINEST...”
Reviewed 29 May 2008

Kenny' Smokehouse serves the best barbeque in DC... I have been going to Kennys for many years and have never had a bad experience. Kennys also has a catering menu. So if you are in the mood for some barbecue ribs, chicken, fried fish or the likes... Just visit Kennys... :)

Reviewed 27 January 2008

Being used to BBQ from the South, this stuff just doesn't match up. The service is consistantly poor as well. No baked beans and cole slaw is lame.
