Oh Man! This place was amazing! Super celiac educated and friendly! Between the GF mozzarella sticks and house bread, to a majority of options being able to be made GF safe it was AMAZING. Our waiter kept smiling because of how excited I was, she completely understood and was supportive! I cannot recommend enough

My husband and teenage daughter were traveling into Dallas from Colorado for a soccer tournament and I was researching food options and came across Kenny’s.

My daughter has several allergies (Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Shellfish), so as you can imagine, eating, while traveling, can be quite difficult for her/us.

I emailed Elizabeth Mardeda, Managing Partner, at Kenny’s, to find out if there was anything on their menu that may accommodate her restrictions.

Not only was Liz willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our families needs, but she was also so sweet! Kenny’s was willing to make a special batch of Gluten Free meatballs, create a salad specifically to her liking, and Liz even went to the local grocery store to purchase the special Gluten/dairy/soy free Ranch dressing my daughter loves to have with her Salads!! She said she “loves seeing great Mom's going above and beyond for their children!”

Liz, you can’t imagine what this meant for our family. The burden and anxiety of food allergies, especially while traveling out of state, can make any trip stressful. However, because of you, not only did my daughter have an AMAZING meal (she said it was the BEST, EVER!!), but you made our trip to Dallas an unforgettable one!! Thank you!

We went this past weekend for the first time. Service was excellent, and their staff is knowledgeable about Celiac. They have safety procedures in place to avoid cross-contamination, including dedicated kitchen space. They can make most items gluten free including their meatballs and chicken parm. Highly recommend.

The best place ever, my son has celiac so we always look for restaurants, he loves Kenny’s Burger but now we decided to check Kenny’s Pizza which was simply excellent, we tried: BBQ pizza, Vegetable Pizza, Classic Pizza, GF Meatballs pasta, ice cream and brownies. Everything was delicious and we kept asking ourselves if it GF but as my son had no gluten reaction and he is a very sensitive celiac boy we declared the place as The Best GF Family Restaurant we have ever been. Thank you Kenny’s pizza for doing all this efforts for celiac people

This was an amazing experience! We called ahead to check on food safety. They answered all our questions and made us feel soooo welcome. They even marked it on the reservation so that the waiter knew before we even got there. The manager came to the table to make sure we felt comfortable. The food was AMAZING. Try the gluten free brownie. They brought gluten free bread to the table. This will now be a go to place for us!!

THIS WAS THE MOST AMAZING GF DINING EXPERIENCE!!! Italian food is a hard one to pull off GF. Most of the time your options are ....salad. BUT KENNYS they can make any dish GF (except ravioli, lasagna, and gnocchi since it has a wheat batter put on, big sad) But the staff was so helpful and understanding and even brought out a separate loaf of GF bread for me with the oil and vinegar! So no they don’t have a separate menu but only the three items listed above are off limits. And the GF penne I had (instead of the gnocchi) was spectacular! It was not gummy or chewy like some GF pasta. It was absolutely perfect and we will definitely be back in future

Service and food were excellent. The waiter was very helpful. I had my own loaf of gluten free bread. He also gave me a separate dipping sauce so as not to cross-contaminate with others at the table. I ordered bruschetta and veal piccata with pasta. All delicious!!

Love this place! The staff/kitchen are knowledgeable. I emailed before hand and here’s what they said about their kitchen practices:

“All of our menu items can be modified to accommodate gluten free restrictions. Our gluten free pizzas are prepared in the same oven as our regular pizzas, but we use a specific tray for all gluten free pizzas to ensure the separation from all possibly contaminated surfaces inside the oven. All other dishes can be prepared in our separate prep kitchen. All fried options, when prepared gluten free, will be sauteed. Our kitchen staff is fully trained to adhere to all allergy standards. They routinely wash their hands & change their gloves to ensure there will be no cross contamination when preparing allergy sensitive meals. “

I recommend the mozzarella sticks and chicken parmigiana!

Things must have changed since the 2014 reviews because I was told that while the pasta was gluten free it was still cooked in the same water as the regular pasta and fried items were all done in the same fryer. While the chicken marsala that I had was good, I would't give them 5 stars because of the above issues.

WoW! & Yum! I was in Dallas on business today & was so glad to find this amazing restaurant near my hotel on Belt Line Rd. I can actually see myself taking my client's here in the future and feeling perfectly safe. The hostess & waiter reassured me that they have many GF diners who return often. I loved hearing that! The GF meatball appetizer was a perfect start to the meal. GF bread was a nice feature to the experience, but it was my entree that "stole the show"! The GF chicken pamisian that I read about truly is worth every calorie. It was so tender I cut it with my fork -- no lying! The pasta is a GF penne, which was fine with me. I was too stuffed for dessert, but I will indulge next time. Also worth mentioning: the waiter said everything could be prepared GF except the ravioli, lasgana and 2 other items I can't recall, making the GF options quite numerous. NOTE: the restaurant is in the same shopping area as the new Whole Foods Market off of Belt Line Rd.
