When business partners Kenny Bowers, Bob Stegall and Mike Hutchinson opened his Kenny’s Burger Joint in Frisco five years ago, they brought together the relaxed nature of the nation’s best burger houses  with spectacular full service, great bar and more.  The restaurant has become a regional favorite, drawing guests who enjoy the signature wood-grilled burgers, ample sides and amazing sandwiches.  Bowers and his partners have now announced plans to open a second Kenny’s Burger Joint in Plano’s LakeSide Market.
