I'm a local and the rudeness is usually tolerated. The food isn't that good to tolerate ill mannered servers.

We stopped here while heading back to Central Florida around 6pm on a Sunday night. The Google internet page indicated reservations were required so I called ahead and was told reservations were not required. When we arrived I could see why ... there were maybe...3 tables of customers so plenty of room. Service was slow. 1/4 Chicken was dry and BBQ beans weren't that good. No beer served. No reason to ever return here again.More

Very noisy place at lunch with only a handful of patrons. Slow, inattentive service. Pork sandwich had no taste, looked like a pork butt sliced on a delli machine , french fries were OK as was sweet tea. Definitely would not recommend this place.

If you like over cooked and dry rub bbq, then this is for you. Otherwise, ribs were dry, not fall off the bone and no bbq sauce. Little bit of coleslaw was ok. Not a place to return to.

Ken's has consistently good BBQ whether it's a pork sandwich, chicken or rib dinner. They have daily specials and great corn nugget appetizers. Sweet tea is always on point and sauces are homemade.

We sometimes stop in at Ken's BBQ for a quick lunch when we're in the area. They always have something good for the Daily Special.

I was looking forward to having a yummy barbecue meal and was disappointed with the quality of the food. The barbecued meat was thinly sliced pieces of ham, not hearty pieces of beef. The cole slaw was blah - not flavorful and fresh. Later I...found out this is a chain restaurant so I guess they prepare the food the same in each place. The one bright spot was the baked beans - very good. Our table was sticky and needed a good cleaning.More

I ordered one BBQ pork sandwich mid afternoon with a very empty restaurant. I was told it should take no more than 5 minutes to get the sandwich. It took more than 20 minutes to get the sandwich. In the meantime I saw cooks playing...around in the kitchen even hanging all over the wait staff.More
