Kennedy's has great fried chicken - we always get the 12 piece for the family, with fried biscuits, honey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans! We eat every bit! The sweet tea is awesome!!

We've had take out from Kenney's on a number of occasions. The fried chicken and homey side dishes are reasonably priced and good for the price. The VMI cadets can't get enough of the honey biscuits that come with your order. Check the hours before...More
