Ordered a burger. What they brought was a quarter cow. 1/2 lb of good beef on a long roll. It had bacon, cheese, onion rings, cold slaw, lettuce and tomato. All done to perfection. This is a must stop place if in the Skowhegan area....More

We had a short wait to be seated, followed quickly by our waitress taking our drink orders. We got a small loaf of tasty wheat bread while we awaited our dinners. I was so happy to find they had turkey croquettes. I haven't found croquettes...More

We are super busy but do try hard to seat and serve as quickly as possible. Croquettes are very popular here! Glad you tried them and enjoyed it:)

Ken's is simple straight up diner food - heaping servings at reasonable prices. (Probably more than one should eat, but heck, it isn't like you eat like this every day.) Think Sunday dinner every day. It ain't fancy and doesn't need to be. In a...More

We tried Ken's on our trip to Quebec based on TA reviews and were totally happy with the lunch experience. We did arrive early so no issue being seated immediately. We were very surprised on the extensive menu and our server helped explain the features...More

I'd give it five stars but you have to reserve that last star for knock-your-socks-off cuisine. That said, if you want good food, fresh ingredients, HUGE portions at seldom-seen reasonable prices, delivered by cheerful, knowledgeable servers (thank you Chelsea!), then this is your place.

We are at Ken's at least once a week. You should go there for the weekend breakfast buffet (freshly made omelets to order!) and lunch or dinner won't disappoint either. Friendliest staff and very quick service.
