KENOS.... A History

Kenos Family Restaurant has been a part of the Canyon since its inception in 1983. Kenos opened its doors on August 3rd, 1980. The current owners, the Cooper family, began owning and operating the business on July 21, 1993. For the past thirty years, Kenos has grown with the Canyon. But one thing at Kenos has stayed the same throughout the decades: the food & the people.

Although the times have changed and food trends come and go, our world-famous pancakes and famous fried chicken are still some of Kenos' best sellers! Our pancakes have been made the same way (with our same super secret recipe) for the past thirty years! And as for the Famous Fried Chicken.... Kenos has deemed Tuesday Night as Chicken Night since it's opening back in 83'.
