We will see all those new fancypants Silver Spring restaurants and raise them one Kenny’s Sub Shop (11210 Georgia, at Reedie next to Dunkin’ Donuts). Kenny’s is a small local chain and since I have not eaten there I will not make fun of their menu too much. In the interest of science, I hereby promise to try them sometime.
But here are some of my difficulties with Kenny’s. First, the name “sub shop” — they do have subs, but 70 percent of their menu is Chinese food, and a mix of Sichuan, Hunan and Mandarin at that. Or at least Americanized versions of those. My orange peel beef/chicken quest continues, but dare I try it at a “sub shop”? Doubt. The menu promises up front “Steaks Hamburgers Subs Seafood Chicken Chinese Food” and they also have apple pie and “Sweet Bun (Donut)”. I think that covers it. I’ve said it before, I am wary of too-diverse menus. The spelling and grammar errors, on the other hand, are endearing.
Oh, they also have both hot subs and cold subs. Fried Crab Stick. Both Buffalo wings and (Chinese) wings, which come with “Mumbo Sauce.” Enormous menu.
Would love to hear from someone who has eaten at Kenny’s, especially a regular. I bet they have plenty of regulars. Who knows, maybe it is good? I like a good local chain. I will try them one of these days. I’m tempted to institute a policy of eating at least once at any Wheaton restaurant that sends me a menu in the mail, but I fear Mrs. Me might actually hold me to that policy…
Oops, and here comes the lightning, time to post this puppy and shut down. Happy thunderstorm!
