Friendly and prompt service. Large and very inexpensive meals. Eclectic menu. Lunch specials came with soup and your choice of steamed or fried rice. Order of 2 egg rolls were huge. What more could one ask for? I'd be a regular if I lived nearby.

Been coming here since it opened, but never, never gave their burger a shot. Big mistake. Saw the review, and will have to eat crow. For $9.99 the double cheeseburger has absolutely no flaws. Came medium as requested. LARGE patties with all the trimmings. Fries...are the large type and done excellently. I needed a knife and fork, but it demands to be eaten by hand. Ask for extra napkins.More

Great little place that has been there for years offering Chinese and American food. We ordered Chinese. The order was served fast and hot and efficiently. We tend to like the spicier selections and the Kung Pao Prawns did not disappoint. Portions are large. We...ordered two entrees and Pork Fried Rice, and wound up taking a good amount home. Needless to say Kenny’s does a great deal of take-out business. The menu is affordability priced and flavorful.More

There's not many old school places like this that serve classic old school Chinese AND American food in the same restaurant. I mean separate, American food, like ribs, burgers, steaks and fries. Also, on the menu are American Chinese food favorites, like sweet and sour...pork, honey walnut prawns and won ton soup. In the old days, I'm told, unless you were in Chinatown, many of the Chinese restaurants in the suburbs or other parts of town, served BOTH American and Chinese food, since maybe they wanted to get business from the mainstream customers that might not necessarily want Chinese food but home American comfort foods, like meat loaf and mashed potatoes. Well, here at Kenny's Cafe in the little coastal town of Pacifica, you can get both! Though from what I observed, most of the room full of non-Asian customers were all dining on Chinese food and a few Asian customers had American food in front of them! All the food here looked really tasty and well done by the kitchen. Even the hair salon place next door gets take out food here. Most of all the reviews here are for the Chinese food, but we went American. We sat in a nice booth and looked over the menu. Classic old school Chinese dishes were on offer, like tomato beef chow mein, egg foo young and salt pepper pork. Also on the menu were all the mainstream American Chinese dishes like beef with broccoli, honey walnut prawns, egg rolls, fried rice and won ton soup. You won't find any super authentic Chinese dishes here, like something from the tide pool and wonder what the hell is that? All the food here we saw on tables looked real good. We decided to go American, well, just cause we could in a Chinese restaurant. Double Bacon Cheeseburgers! served with fries of course. Dinners on the American side included grilled pork chops, NY steak, pork ribs and even chicken fried steak! Breakfast is served all day as well, as I did see one table with an omelet and hashbrowns, along with General's Chicken and steamed rice! Our burgers arrive in decent time by our friendly server speaking perfect English. Holy bustin' burgers! Those burger patties are huge!, looks like maybe 1/2 pounders. If I knew the meat was so big, I'd of only ordered a single patty burger. Also on the plate were tomato, lettuce and steak fries. My fave are the steak fries, big and fat! Mayo comes on the burger, so if you're anti-mayo, let 'em know! I could barely open my mouth that wide ... and I can open pretty wide! See pics! We didn't ask or were asked how we wanted the meat cooked, so it just came out well done. It still tasted good with a slight charbroiled flavor. This monster burger was just $9.95! All the prices are very reasonable here even for the Chinese food. We found the service perfectly fine, no rudeness, but nice and friendly. If you're a local or just visiting the Pacifica area and looking for some great Chinese food or diner food, including breakfast, come on over to Kenny's Cafe, located just off the main highway.More

Wow, some of the best Chinese food I’ve had! Kenny’s is located off the beaten path in a shopping center. There is ample parking in the parking lot. When you get inside you seat yourself. Staff is friendly and eager to help. Make sure you...check out the daily specials. They serve a lot of Chjnese food, but also a smaller American food menu. At first I overlooked the American food, but I noticed many people ordering the Prime Rib special. The general chicken I got was amazing. Huge pieces of flavorful chicken, light on the sauce, mixed with onions, and fresh broccoli on the side. I get this dish from various Chinese food places in the Bay Area at least once a week and Kenny’s was the best. The egg roll was interesting. At first when you get it it looks huge! It’s about twice the normal size. But then you realize it’s double fried. The outer breading is a more puffy breading. It wasn’t bad, but not great. I’ll be back. Now to decide if I want General Chicken again or American food. Mmmm...More

The food is good. The service...AWFUL. If you have a slight problem, the elderly woman who works there becomes abrupt and things go downhill from there.

Nice People. Good Chinese cuisine with many different options. Perfect for families as most meals are big enough for 2-3 people to share. Curry Chicken was my personal favorite.

We have lived in the area for a couple of months and have been to some really rubbish chinese restaurants but Kenny's is in another league. It is tasty, has massive portions and is reasonably priced plus they do take out. The staff are so...friendly and welcoming plus there's plenty of parking. We can highly recommend a visit we will defiantly be back.More
