We were told that this place was good. We went and we were seated promptly. We looked over the menu and made our choices. The waitress came and took our drink order. She came back and we ordered Appetizers and our meal. The food comes...out and she ak d if there was anything else? I asked where our Appitizer was, she replied, " WHAT APPITIZER ? " Then she realized she forgot to put it in, and then acted like it was our fault. Never again.More

My husband and I enjoyed breakfast at Kenny Rays during our stay in the area. The food was delicious, reasonably priced and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will return when back in this area.

During a recent four-night stay in Panguitch, we ate at Kenny Ray's the first night and returned the second. Very good experience the first night with an exceptional waitress, and good experience the second evening. Food was good both nights. Experiences at two other Panguitch...restaurants on our third and fourth nights were not nearly as good.More

My country fried steak was prefab and very undercooked. So was my wifes. I showed the waitress the raw meat and she very politely apologized and took them off the bill. The salad bar was missing several items I wanted but no big deal. The...doctor pepper was good though.More

We stopped at Kenny Rays for dinner, we had the soup which was very good, a Reuben that was okay and pie with ice cream that was very good. The staff were very nice and prices were not bad.

We planned to stop for lunch in Panguich and chose this joint. Awesome cheeseburger. Big, beefy burger, lettuce that wouldn't stop, fresh, ripe tomato, purple onion, all on a brioche bun. The joint was clean. Upon entering, the staff welcomed us immediately well as thanked...us on the way out. A return place for us for sure. Unfortunately, we were too full to enjoy their homemade pie. Next time for sure. Service was adequate and friendly.More

Diner style with typical fare....the $4 salad bar was a deal. My Patty Melt was well....a patty melt. Breakfast on the other hand...wow. the short stack was 2 big fluffy pancakes. The Biscuits and gravy ( 2 biscuits) plus hash browns came out as 3...fluffy biscuits. Prices are reasonable.More

This is a great little diner located in the heart of town. Good food, good, friendly service with good prices. Meals are generous with lots of fries served with your burger!! Almost enough for 2!

I was really looking forward to eating at Kenny Ray’s but was disappointed when we finally got there. We went for lunch and although the restaurant didn’t seem busy, the service was slow. I ordered fish and chips. The selection came with four pieces of...fish and a plate full of soggy, warm fries. The waitress never came back to ask us if we needed drink refills and when we were finished with our meal we had to go to the counter to finally get our check. I’m not sure if we got there during a shift change but there seemed to be a lot of employees standing around talking to each other and not concentrating on patrons.More
