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

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

Kenny Bowers is one pretty fun loving chef and he has a few really nice restaurants in the area that match his personality.

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

Just when you thought it safe to put away your defibrillator, Kenny Bowers, that irreverent chef who runs Kenny’s Woodfire Grill and Kenny’s Burger Joint has come out with a massive piece of meat on a bun. No, we are not talking about the El Jefe Grande that weighs in at seven pounds stuffed with seven thousand calories. This is a gargantuan hot dog to rival Nolan Ryan’s two foot long dog at the Ballpark at Arlington. Continue reading
