Kenny's BBQ Smokehouse
Posted by Jay on 07/26/2014
This is very good smoked barbecue. I have had ribs, chopped/pulled pork, and nearly all the sides here. The meat is always well smoked - it doesn't lose the meat flavor, but has excellent smoke flavor. The sauces are all tomato-based, so don't expect North Carolina vinegar sauces. That said, the sauces have plenty of vinegar in them to satisfy those of us who do prefer vinegar based sauces. This is a great neighborhood barbecue place, and I just wish they were open Sundays to satisfy my barbecue craving during football season!

My food was delicious. I chose the medium spicy chicken/pork rib small platter with roasted potatoes & coleslaw. (the other vegetables & starches did not look appealing).

This place use to be "Hogs on the Hill"10 + yrs. ago it became Kenny's. Due to Gov't work, I've lived in alot of places up-n-down the East Coast and Mid-West, so I've tasted good bar-b-Q!! For this area this is good fare. Prices are reasonable. sauce is just ok. But the ribs are GOOD! Always cooked well + tender. Sides are excellent!! Service and atmosphere are always on point! Have not experienced much better for the DMV area. Sauce was better back when it was H.O.T.H

I have always liked Kenny's... But I went there for the first time on a Monday last night. It was like eating at a new place. Everything was on point. I got the Smokehouse combo which is basically everything. Amazing! The sides were all Amazing as well. Recommend the Black Eyed Peas & Rice, Cabbage & Green Beans. Next Monday gonna go back and see if the greens are better than normal too!

I don't know what other people expect from BBQ but what i got was not what I expected. The BBQ tasted like pickled mambo sauce (but i would have preferred mambo sauce.) Not only was that mess watery, it smothered my cabbage and sweet potatoes if you could call them sweet. Now, I had chicken so mabey that was it. NO! My husband bought some dry ribs that had more burnt spots and bones then meat. The water sauce pretty much spilled out before he got to it. Mabey this wasn't a good day for them but it sure wasn't a good day for my taste buds. However, my husband thought the greens were great.

I'm with Tameka...the food is great and the prices are too. I too am from the South and I must say it's not the REAL NC barbeque but it's a mighty good option when you can't get it! I have NEVER had thin, light-colored barbeque sauce at Kenny's. It's always best to get Hot and work down to Mile.

I don't know what in the world was an earlier reviewer was talking about, with Kenny's Bar BQ Sauce. It is awsome, especially on those ribs and chicken and you have to get the spicy sauce. From the side orders to the meats everything is always so good and the Atmospher of the place is wonderful. And I am from the SOUTH, I know good Sauce when I taste it, and my favorite the GREENS(PERFECT)! As a matter of fact I am on my way there right now !
