REVIEWS OF Ken's Hardwood Barbecue IN Arizona

J. Smith

Good BBQ here. We ate the 4 rib plate with potato salad and pulled pork sandwich with collard greens and mac N cheese.

Sidra Addims

Cant believe how long I’ve been in Tucson and I didn’t know about this place or their greens

Elizabeth Wilcox

Fantasic barbecue where the focus is on the meat and spices rather than drowning it in sauce. The sauce is awesome too if you want to dunk your ribs in it but it is great without it. Family and budget friendly and even the pies are homemade. A new family favorite for us. Thank you!

Jocylynn Houy

Very good food. Friendly staff. Good atmosphere. Will recommend to family and friends.

Gill Mejias

Amazing taste from the originators of "Barbecue". Very good!

Lupe Kern

I feel that the prices are a little steep. Food was mediocre. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Place was very clean.

Mike Hansen

Beef, and chicken brisket was good. Corn bread was dry. Ordered extra sauce for both sandwiches, but received only the standard amount. For the price, I expect my order to be correct. Overall the meal was decent, but they need to pay attention special request.

Rondale Burns

I have been going here for a week straight at this point. Everything is delicious!!!

Alisha Landis

The food is delicious, the pulled pork is so tender. The cornbread is so fluffy, the whole meal was wonderful

Dony Cartrette

Good atmosphere and friendly service, topped off with outstanding barbecue! Well worth the price!

Mike Cassidy

Incredible catfish, loaded nachos, "real"collard greens,all delicious. Great exerience!

Todd Risen

This place is a gem in Tucson! It's not like the menu for BBQ is huge anyways, but I've been here a few times now, and I'm telling you, I haven't had anything yet that I don't love!!!

Sharon Wilken

Delicious. Loved it

Drake Brooks

We had Ribs, Brisket, Hotlinks, Pulled pork, Ken's beans, coleslaw, Cornbread. I like the decor.. laid back easy going. Food was on point. However Brisket was dry and didn't have any flavor, maybe they had an off day. Would I eat there again? Yes I would.

John Bushell

Great food! BBQ sauce is really good. Service was fast and friendly and the fries were hot. Good stuff.

Dan Boelsche

The sauce is truly in the big leagues. Had brisket plate with cornbread, collard greens and fried okra. WILL GO BACK to this restaurant.

Ginger Knowlton

Awesome food and great service ! We had Ken’s cater an event. Probably the best brisket I’ve ever had! The beans were unbelievable and the bbq sauce is amazing! Not to mention the price was better than the other 4 local places I had inquired about. Looking forward to dining in sometime soon. Thanks Ken!

Riley Ras

All the the portions & sides were on point but my brisket was pretty dry when I went.

Joshua CAmeron

Great service and great food. Had pulled pork sandwiches and their sweet potato fries!!! Both awesome! Mac n cheese was alright but the sandwich and fries were perfect.

Victor Acereto

Best bbq in town hands down!

Tami Molnar

Great food and service! Everyone made sure that your food was to your liking and asked if you had any questions about it. This restaurant gives you that Hometown feel with A Touch of Class and amazing food! Ken Sr. is a very humble and classy guy and his staff very humble and hard working too. I highly recommend Ken's hardwood barbecue!!

Seth Geiger

Not my style but service was good.

Ernanjy Flemings

The nacho sauce was amazing, the hot links crispy but soft in the middle and the wings sauce was flavorful. The peach cobler made me feel like I was back home in grandmas house

Rachelle Harris

Great service and great food. Ken was so nice. Establishment was very clean

Melissa Hernandez

Delicious food! My sister and I came her for the first time. Wow! The food is delicious and well presented. I had the Chili with Brisket I enjoyed it. My sister loved the catfish dinner, best she had here in Tucson.

florida bound

just had the collard greens and have to agree with just about everyone on's the best! also had the catfish sandwhich, very tasty! the sandwhiches are pretty big, so be sure to have a good appetite! def. wanna try the chili and brisket sandwich on future visits.

Kathy Jackson

Really great experience. Food and Staff was great. Will definitely be back.

Jack Lanning

Baked beans were good, pork ribs were phenomenal. Good portions, reasonable pricing.

michael graber

Awesome place for collard greens. If u from the south like me go here for collards

T'Lee Collins

SOUL FOOD with A Taste of Honey (Herb Albert). For my meal I had Southern Fried Catfish (catfish make my nature rise; The Four Tops) with two side orders; Grandma Green Beans and BBQ beans. I've been looking for a place that sells fried catfish it has been unsuccessful until now. Ken's will be a regular stop for me. I noticed a couple of things on their menu that I must try; Sweet Potato Fries and Fried Mac and Cheese

Seth Mackey

I am no expert on the different types of barbeque, but whatever this is, it is my favourite type. The sauce is very Smoky with a ton of flavor and all of the sides are fantastic and hold their own. I have loved everything on the menu so far but I still have a few items left to order. I recommend the ribs or brisket with the sweet potato fries and the Mac and cheese. Even the cornbread is on a higher level and is always fresh, moist and warm.

Alex Daniels

Arrived late in the day so they were out of the brisket and ribs, so I had the pulled pork. Turned out to be some of the best pulled pork I've had. The service was also very friendly and helpful.

Miguel Pride

Truly the best ribs in Tucson. Also had the chicken and brisket. All good. No disappointments. You have to try it!

Brandie Sullivan

Very respectful and courteous

Dzert Spyce

The men are excellent cooks, the greens are to die for, the meat fell off the bones, the mac n cheese was so rich and tasty, the corn bread was perfect in texture and flavor, everything was so delicious will come back every chance I get. You better too. DO DELICIOUS!!

May Day

Very nice ambience, Nice people, amazing food !

Jeff Shapira

This is the best, from the mac & cheese, fries, to the ribs!

s g

Great attitude from employees. Quick service. Not a very long wait. Food is rally good. Affordable.

Robert Hanekamp

If you haven't been there go the food is fabulous. Great employees

Just Chris

Great pulled pork fries, Up there with the best in Tucson.

Cathi Jones

I ordered the pulled pork dinner with the two sides of cole slaw and Ken's baked beans. It came with a slice of cornbread. The dinner was 12.99 plus tax which I thought was a bargain for the amount of food I got. I enjoyed my dinner very much. The pulled pork with their house made barbecue sauce was delicious. I also enjoyed the slaw and cornbread. The baked beans were flavorful but too sweet for me. It is just a matter of taste. I would definitely go back.

Brian L

Food was ok, but a little pricy. Nice atmosphere and clean appearance. Brisket was overcooked and chewy. Flavor was ok, nothing to write home about. Overall price vs quantity & quality wasn't great. I wouldn't go back here. Holy Smokin Butts is still the best BBQ I've found in Tucson.

Rod Biddle

Tasty brisquit, tasty pulled pork, reasonable prices, could not ask for more. Oh yes tasty pecan pie.

Angie Anderson

Good price for the food, decent sized portions, and very nice staff. I just wasn't all that impressed with the flavoring of the meat choices.

kysha slocumb

Ribs were good, but the Mac and cheese needed more cheese and seasoning. The corn bread was dry and cold with no flavor.

Donald A Falk

Ken's brought their truck to the ML King Jr celebration at Reid Park, which shows where their heads and hearts are at. The food was excellent, very authentic and prompt. Some of the best collard I've had in a long time!

Samuel Allen

Excellent barbecue and the staff was friendly and professional.


I visited this amazing restaurant with my family. They serve THE best bbq brisket, bbq sauce, and cornbread! The staff is so friendly and caring! Thanks guys

Lee Sully

Last time I was there my brisket had black hairs in it. Wasn't well smoked either.

Alex Olmo

While the brisket was a little tough, the taste of the barbeque sauce more than made up for it. The fries were pretty good too

Raj Murthy

OK. Could do better.

Gary Manuel

Took my mom here for her birthday she really enjoyed the food and I did as well, everyone definitely should check it out!

Anthony Valadez

A pretty sincere take on classic BBQ. Got the sampler plate with my girlfriend and it was perfect for the two of us. The sauces have a very "homemade" feel and the meats are all served naked so you can dress them yourself. Very satisfied

justin Tarpley

Delicious ... My fave spot fo real Cue

Corrinne Johnson

Best barbequed food ever!

Chanthy Leang

The food is tasty with very reasonable price. Friendly service as well.

celia rivera

My friend took me there for lunch the other day for lunch and I had the pulled pork sandwich n tater salad, let me tell you the sandwich was perfection. Tater salad was on point. I also tried a bite of the hot link and it also was Amazing. My wife and I have been to Brush fire and it wasn't as good as Kens. I know that some people would say first time luck but it was a undeniable taste. Rich Rivera


Sweet potato fries with Cinnamon and brown sugar...who would've thought?!? Rib dinner...yum! Sloppy Joe special...yum yum. Don't forget the beer

Ursala Harrison

The customer service was excellent, as well as their food. Highly reccomended!

Jobe Repola

This is my first time in Ken's I had heard some pretty good things about it so I had to go try. I ended up with the beef brisket with two sides, mac and cheese and the barbecue beans. The brisket past the pool test but was a little lacking on bark and smoke. I wish I would have got to try some other cuts. AZ for the mac and cheese on a scale from 1 to 10 it was probably a 12 nice and stodgy not your creamy kind tasted multiple Cheese's in there was some sort of seasoning that was out of this world. The barbecue beans we're almost as good scale from 1 to 10 probably at 9 if you like them on the sweet side. I'll end up going back and trying a different kind of meat

Daniel Payette

Great bbq, sweet potato fries are a must try. My credit card wouldn’t go thru. Let me eat my lunch, I left to go pull cash from my bank, and I paid for it after the fact. Good ppl from my experience. Will definitely come back!! A+++

Alice Smith

great food. shout out to KG! CMHeady

Edward Pedley

My new go to place for all things BBQ. The pulled pork sandwich was the best. Great selection on the menu. Dining room is set up nicely. Clean facilities.

20tech17 AT

Awesome food worth going back for a midnight snack if they were opened 24 hours lol

Gwen Marshall

Great ribs. Hopefully Rib Tips will become part of the menu in the future.

Jeffrey Ivie

Some of the best BBQ I've ever had! Excellent pulled pork and coleslaw! Best in town.

Steve Archer

The brisket was tender, but resembled roast beef. The sauce had a touch of too much vinegar. The BBQ beans were very tasty. The overall cost was about right.

Jimmy Irwin

Great food, so so customer service.

Kaleb Dashkiwsky

Everyone was really cool and polite. The food was quick!


Ok food. I tried them today and they were ok. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and pulled pork loaded fries. The sandwich was small and it didn’t include the coleslaw shown in the picture, it wasn’t really worth the $7. The fries were a good portion size and pretty tasty. I probably won’t go back, but it wasn’t terrible either.

martha Layton

Best flipping barbeque ever

c canuce

Best barbecue in town

Vernon Kea-Betters

First time I ate there was today.. I have to say the staff was great and the food was just what I needed on my hunt for bbq... Also the price to feed three of us was unbeatable!!!!we will be back for seconds!

ramon g

Great sides okra Mac cheese !

Letty Chavez

You want BBQ try this place out they have everything for anyone hubby had the pulled pork great amount sweet and tangy flavored it was great there sause was amazing don't even get me started on there coleslaw had a nice and cold sweet taste it was strange but a nice surprise to have a mango flavor fallowing after you chew and eat it . It was refreshing I had the fried catfish I never had such a clean flavored cat fish like that in my life. The seasons were on point gold and perfectly flakes the French fries were

Marcus White

Had the ribs, baked beans, potato salad, and green beans. This place is the real deal BBQ. Please do not come here expecting fast food. They actually cook here. It will be worth the wait. The family who owns it are courteous and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and quaint. If they had house made southern sweet tea, they would get that fifth star for sure.

Deborah cannon

Ken, thank you for making my daughters wedding perfect. Your barbecue was the best!! We had pulled pork, pulled chicken, baked beans and macaroni and cheese. The meats melt in your mouth. Your family recipe is a Gem!! Ken delivered and set up everything I did not have to do anything except invite the guests. After the wedding I had to take back the utensils which gave me even more joy because I now have another favorite your RIBS are addicting. Thank you again for an incredible meal!!

fabian mora

Awesome services and great food. First time and loved it! Even the jazzy music was perfect. This place is original

George Luft

Great BBQ. Happy staff

Dennis Graham

Great BQQ at reasonable prices

Kenneth Ventura

Good BBQ. The brisket had a good taste but the rub on the ribs was outstanding. You did not need any sauce because the rub was that good. The portion sizes were great. I ordered the ribs with 2 sides and feel I got a good filling meal at a great price. Staff was very good. They were quick in taking my order and getting it to me fast.

Anthony Clark

Food was excellent. Good people and atmosphere. Would recommend going to everyone who loves great food.

Kevin Sutton

This is the best BBQ joint in Tucson. Great BBQ, sides, and service. You have try it to appreciate it.

minuscule studio

Great place! Loved the ribs, beans, Mac n cheese! Also some of the best pulled pork we’ve ever had. Service was fast and very friendly. We will be back for sure!

Ed Hendel

I love their ribs and sweet potato fries. Good peach cobbler too! Very friendly employees too.

Julie Madrid

Such friendly staff!! I was incredibly impressed with how nice and clean the restaurant is. Service was excellent and it has become one of my favorite spots now. I recommend this place. I LOVED IT! Food was delicious and came out quick. It was my first time trying it and staff where very helpful and patient with me and my family.

Eddie Alexander

Ate at Ken's Hardwood BBQ and the food was fantastic!

Darwin Sayo

From the outside you can't really tell much about the place. But inside it's got a nice warehouse feel to it. Food was fas and absolutely yummy. I had the pork ribs and they were ok. Not bad but nothing to write home about. My wife had me try the sweet potato fries with nacho cheese and pulled pork. Holy cow. I had never had a taste sensation like that before. You have to try it. They also have a food truck that you may see out and about once and a while.

Ryan Cooke

Great price. Pulled pork sandwich with homemade mac, great flavor and smoked perfectly. Game on and blues in the background. What more do you need?

Andrea Salinas

The food here tastes like the food you get when you go home for the summer to a family barbecue. The meats are flavorful without being over seasoned. I'm very picky about barbecue sauce, I even like that.

Danna Williams

OMG delicious most tender ribs I've eaten In any restaurant I don't know how they stayed on the bone to put it in my Box Mac and cheese is perfect combination not too much of anything It is yummy to the taste buds also cornbread like perfection I can't wait to return and try some other Items on the menu Also I don't know if was owner are not look like family working there the gentleman and the young lady were wonderful a wonderful meal and pleasant atmosphere I'd recommend to anybody

Lancer Hicks, Jr

Good food, pleasant setting

Musomi McDowell

Finally have some great BBQ in Tucson! I had ribs, mac n cheese, greens, and potato salad. Everything was top notch! The greens had plenty of flavor, ribs were succulent and seasoned to perfection, the sauce was on point, mac and potato salad was amazing too! Warm friendly environment and great service! Glad I finally have a great BBQ spot to get my fix on the regular. #KencanQ

Steve Ohnemus

Ken's has a chill, comfortable ambience. The staff is friendly. And the food does not disappoint! Best catfish I've had in forever. I've also had the brisket, pork, green beans and mac 'n' cheese. All are really good and the green beans have real flavor vs. being an obligatory vegetable added to round out a meal. Have been here twice so far and will include Ken's in my restaurant rotation.

Kevin Klaverkamp

Tried the pulled pork sandwich while on investigation.. was delicious

Norma Salcido

The best!

Steve Powell

We have had the luck to have had some excellent BBQ when we lived in Kentucky. Since moving out here to AZ we have wanted to find a really good BBQ place. Sadly we have not found one until today. We had some business on 22nd street and looked for a place to eat lunch. We saw Ken's on the map and read some of the good reviews so we decided to try it. WOW! This is the real deal. WE had the pulled pork sandwich and the sloppy joe and the meat is tender and flavorful. Cooked to perfection. The sauce is devine, smoky with some sweet and fits the meat perfectly. Sweet potato fries are heavenly and real homemade potato salad. Nothing more to be said. This is real BBQ. Can't wait to try the other offerings and the amazing sounding desserts. We live a ways away but will be eating there when we go to Tucson. Don't miss it.

Antonette Gallo

Ordered dinner for delivery and received the wrong sides. Wasn't impressed with the pulled pork either. Won't be ordering again.

Tony Starks

This is BBQ done proper!! Dont forget your bib

Tyler Rohrbaugh

Was under the impression that this was Texas style bbq. Bought 1 lb of brisket and 1 lb of pulled pork. Both had the same color, flavor and texture but we're obviously different meats. Also not used to getting chopped brisket by the lb, it's usually sliced. 3 stars generous.

Olivia Moore

I spent 26 dollars, got 1 tiny sausage, some brisket, 3 short ribs and two tiny side dishes. They said it will be good for two people, but it turns out not even enough for one. Huge disappointment!

Brad Hahn

The food was good. Pulled pork was LeeAnn and the sides we're good.

Cynthia Dunbar

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!!! They have MAGICAL tacos!!! You have to have these tacos, they are AMAZING.... don't leave the planet before you chow down on these tacos!!! Hurry.... quick, put it on your bucket list!!! Go get some MAGIC for your belly... I know your hungry!!

Antonio Smith

One of the best BBQ spots in Tucson. Coming from Tx, I can attest to the fact that it is hard finding great BBQ here amongst all the Mexican Restaurants. Stop searching and go to Ken's BBQ. The sides are great as well and the staff is always friendly.

Jeanna Campisi

First time here. Loved it

April Barbosa

We ordered a family order of ribs, mac n cheese and fries and 4 drinks. It was delicious! Ribs were juicy and flavorful. We had bbq sauce but those ribs were tasty enough by themselves. The fries were perfect too. Price was great. Service was exceptional we felt very comfortable having dinner there and we will be back in the future.

Richard Holzwarth

Really, really good bar b que. Nice folks too. Try the peach cobbler.

allen wrinn

Just as good as you would expect from any local BBQ place that isn't part of a big chain.


1st time. For the price...... NOT GOOD. Family of six paid $92. Did not feed everyone. Too little food for the money. Had to go elsewhere to eat. Mr K's bbq gives more food for less money. Will not be back

Michael Melby

Brisket was tender, not fatty. Good flavor.

Susie P

This was our first time here but we will be back. Best BBQ I've had in awhile!!

Richard Woodruff

I had their beef brisket nachos to go. Very much enjoyed them. Will be back.

Kevin Martin

Got the loaded fries. Definitely worth the money. I couldn't finish them and normally I finish all my food. It's great to have another BBQ place on the east side that is not Brush Fire!

Julia Lehman

A little bit of a wait but well worth it Ken himself handed us our order. Briscket nachos and brisket nacho fries and not to mention the amazing sweet potato pie. i was like aww man no whip cream n then tried it and it doesn't need to its outta this world all on its own. brisket was so tender and flavorful!!! Wish i could have ordered more but the portions are very large!!!

Barbara Brown-Mosley

Best meal. Excellent tender bbq ribs.

KiTiara Hurd

I'm so happy to see this place flourish!! The food is great and I always get ample and plenty. Ive had nearly everything on the menu. Id definitely suggest it to anyone and everyone thats got a hankering for some hardwood smoked BBQ.

Wendi McCluskey

These guys know their stuff! I'd give you 10 ⭐s if I could!

Dana Cruz

Be still my heart! The food here is amazing! The family recipes and love they use to cook their food says it all. Lord, this food is just so tasty and flavorful. We met the owner Ken, he is so nice and welcoming. We enjoyed the pulled pork and ribs.They are cook with so much care that as flavorful as they are, you actually won't need the BBQ sauce. Even though there are 3 of them to choose from. Let me also just say, the collard greens are perfect and the mac n cheese will put a smile on your face. We highly recommend Ken's Hardwood Barbeque!!

Jennifer Hubbard

So much tasty food at a good price. The owners a really friendly and great with suggestions. We had the pulled pork, spicy hot links, and the ribs... did not disappoint. For sides we had the green beans and mac and cheese and they were equally delicious

D Enterprises LLC

While the Ambience was nice. The food left something to be desired. We were under the impression this was a smokehouse bbq restaurant with smoked meats. Upon receiving our brisket that we ordered as a sandwich we found the meat was boiled. The barbecue sauce lacked luster and is more along the lines of watered down ketchup. We travel all over the state and visit MANY BBQ places. We suggest that pass on the Brisket and try the fride okra. The okra had a light seasoning and fride to perfection. Keep pushing Ken's one day you will be a Real Smoked BBQ house.

Jason Hollenbeck

Awesome BBQ, one of the best in town! BBQ sauce is to die for!

mike mckee

Top Notch. Loved the Loaded Fries

Joseph S.

Tried this place out yesterday. Called in an order of ribs and smoked chicken. Was ready when we arrived, which is always nice. Staff was very helpful and polite. Went home and ate while watching the U of A game. The ribs were moist and perfect. The sauce they provided was perfect as well - not to sweet or vinegar tasting. The pulled smoke chicken was a real surprise. Moist with the right amount of flavor. Would definitely recommend and would like to try some of their other cuts of meat.

Vincent Martin

I've been going to that building for BBQ for 50 years. Best there since Jack and Laura, the original owners. Impressed!

Vanya Marinkovic

Love barbecue now! Barbecue at it's best

Ashley Hardee

This is a great place to go to the food is great and I got the pulled pork sandwiche and fries and some fried okra the best it's fresh


First time here and I'm in love! The price is awesome for the amount, quality, and taste. I'm not from tucson but I would drive here just for this bbq. Amazing!!!!

Herb Adams

Cullen Foresman

Food is amazing and staff is always extra friendly and helpful.

Ernestine Moreno

This place could rethink their sauce, love everything else. The staff, all the food, the sauce line could be extended, to include garlic and hot styles

Clarence Brown

Take out is supreme, haven't eaten in house yet.

Anthony Aros

Yummy brisket nachos and the ribs were good too

Nikki Holgate

Really good BBQ and very friendly employees.

J Stump

Only thing worth your money is the loaded fries. Everything else is over priced. When I got my brisket plate it had one piece of brisket.

Roderick Zehrung

Great BBQ. I had the ribs and we had a pulled pork nachos. Fantastic.

Matthew B

Food is so good and the owner is everyone's grandma I'm pretty sure

J Harding

What a joke Friday September 21st 6:15 P M. Just left Kens bb slop. I live three minutes away from this so called bbq joint. Ordered a pound of hot links, they said it came with rolls. Got home to hot dog buns? Is that a roll? I did not think so, anyway the so called buns were refrigerator temp as was the bbq sauce and the hot link's. This is after waiting 10 minutes, I guess this is what you get at Ken's while the kid at the counter that is supposed to be helping is more interested in what is on his head phones. What a disappointment. You put your name on this? I would be ashamed, not only for my food but also my employees. Sad very sad I will never return to this so called bbq joint.

Sue M

Disappointing. Dry brisket, coleslaw tasted like a bad batch from KFC, very watery, ribs were just ok.

Zach Chiarelli

Great great food! The best bbq I have had in Tucson Best bbq in Tucson. The ribs fall off the bone!

John Abney

Best BBQ in Tucson

VL Phillips

If you don't order their loaded fries with brisket, you are doing yourself and your taste buds a disservice!

Aron C

Love the food. Not too many good BBQ places here in Tucson. This one is by far my favorite.

Matt Pellow

When the 'Big Red' fountain drink is the highlight of the meal there may be a problem. The brisket was dry and like rubber, and the fries came out of the freezer. If I pay $18 for brisket, or $10 for fries it has to be at least decent. I ate here 4 years ago and the food was a disappointment and it still is. I wouldn't recommend it.

William Allen

Super tasty ribs and pulled pork! Didn't even use a but BBQ sauce!

Lloyd Williams

Food cold sodas fountain water down. Food didn't come out to our table at the same time.. They have went down Hill. I want return there again

Maria Johnson

I love the food at Ken's Hardwood Barbeque! The Brisket and Hot Links are great! The Greens are

Sina Valenzuela

Good food

Kelly Rigg

I went there tonight around 6:30. I ordered loaded sweet potato fries. They were short staffed so the wait was a bit. However, i think it was the owner came out and apologized to me for the wait. Well let me tell ya'll IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! great smoky flavor on the pulled chicken. The mac n cheese was awesome. I would totally recommend these guys to everyone. Just go when you are not in a rush or call your order in ahead of time. Great job..great service..friendly.

John Daniel

Kens cant be beat .Pulled pork sandwitch and fries were perfect

Gabby Carrillo

Food was amazing and customer service was great

Phil Brown

Good ribs

Taz Smith

Very awesome service, Ken is an delightful person. Food is fantastic! Most try


The meat was decent but not great. I ordered 1/2 pound of chicken seems more like a quarter pound. They don’t even serve cornbread on the side!!!!! I looked over the menu and didn’t see it on there. The staff was friendly but not very informative of there menu. They had very limited drinks and they don’t make there own ice teas. The restaurant is very small and has 2 small TVs, which is okay for me. Overall, it was kind of pricey and I left out here hungry..... I’m not coming back here again. I prefer Brushfire tho :)

Kaya Newberry

Amazing home food with not breaking the bank pricing!!!
