Kenny’s Burger Joint Opening Second Location In Plano

Kenny10by Mark Demming

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.

Bowers opened his first Plano restaurant, Kenny’s Smoke House, in the Shops of Legacy a year ago.  The new Kenny’s Burger Joint is scheduled for an August 2014 opening.    Continue reading

Meet the Latest El Jefe, Ramsey Hilton

Kenny Bowers is one bad ass chef. You would have to be in order to create the El Jefe Grande burger, the one he serves up at Kenny’s Burger Joint in Frisco. The El Jefe Grande consists of a 3-pound beef patty topped with french fries, chili, queso, jalapenos, a half pound of bacon, onions, pickles, lettuce and tomato. It’s all sandwiched between two giant slices of Texas toast, and tips in at more than 7,000 calories. It is a true beast of burden.    Continue reading

A Fancy Waygu Burger Makes It Into Kenny’s UnFancy Burger Joint

kenburgby Steven Doyle

Kenny Bower’s Frisco burger joint, aptly named Kenny’s Burger Joint, is not about the fancy. You won’t find any foie gras (snap!) but you will find some very good burgers, ribs and one bad ass Philly Cheesteak called the Steak Bomb.

With an homage to the Chris Rock scene in I’m Ginna Git You Sucka, where Rock orders a single rib, Bowers sells one rib for a dollar on Sunday nights. This would make Rock proud, but I seriously doubt that Bowers will sell a handful of soda for a dime.    Continue reading

The Year of the Dog: 10 Best Hot Dogs In Dallas

by Steven Doyle

The month of July brings us higher heat and sunny days. It is a time to grill and be grilled. July is also National Hot Dog Month, so we created a list of some pit stops to grab a great dog. Be it a gourmet version with foie, or a standard with simple mustard and relish, we have your dog fix.

Look for this to turn into the year of the hot dog as there are plenty of gourmet hot dog restaurants setting up shop soon in Dallas. It will be ever as big as the burger wars we witnessed over the past year.     Continue reading

Build A Better Burger And Kenny Will Pay You

by Steven Doyle

Let me start by saying I really like Kenny Bowers. First, the guy can cook. That’s a fairly important point when you are a chef. Second, the guy is outrageous. Great combination. Kenny doesn’t take himself too seriously and has a lot of fun with his burger joint up in Frisco.

It’s pretty nifty that you can buy a single rib for one dollar, which comes from a Chris Rock line in the film I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. This is also the spot where you can buy a 7 pounder that is a burger loaded with 7,000 calories, and can actually feed 20 people — or one really hungry hombre. Last week Kenny announced a dinosaur-sized hot dog.     Continue reading
