This pub and pizza parlor bordering River Oaks is popular with students and those seeking an almost-authentic Irish experience. – In Short
Though a broad selection of beer seems to be the main draw, the pizza at Kenneally's may make you thirst for a Peroni rather than a Guinness. The sauce is fresh and the crust is thin and crispy. Homemade potato chips and other light fare are also available. Seating is at the long rectangular bar, at a group of tables in a back near the dart board or out on the open-air deck.
Best Pizza, beer, and service – I've been in this pub many times, mostly alone, but I've never felt alone once inside.
Besides the most friendly staff I've ever seen anywhere, other customers are "openly
friendly." If you want to be friendly and talkative, others will join you. If you want to be
alone, they will leave you alone. The pup is very secure with no hassles. I've found a nice
variety of customers such as many professionals (lawyers, nurses, secretarys, sports
figures, government employees), of age students, and even a few retirees all looking
for just good fun, great beer (wide variety of liquor), and excellent Chicago style pizzas,
plus the best mustard and sandwiches ever.
I rate this Irish Pub a 10+. Brian Derby
Its an Irish Pub – Very few know how to pour a pint of Guiness. I was exremely happy with the place. I went on St. Patty's, yes a bit pricey however Guiness and whiskey is what I drink and $5 is pretty close to normal price (for good whiskey that is). I also loved the fact they had a spot to drink something out of this ice sculpture and get a shot glass with their name on it. That helped me remember what pub I went to. The guys and I run out there every chance we get. Its a pub not a diner, expect the occasional smoke. The only thing I think to make the place better would be to have more Irish music on the Juke Box, maybe some Traditional Irish Music along with some Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy's.
Love it! – This is one of my favorite bars in Houston. The pizza alone makes it worth coming to, but I like the laid back atmosphere and the lack of hair gel and implants among the clientele.
over done – I use to be a regular, grew up here and liked the pub. Now it seems to be loosing its polish, dirty bathrooms, slow service and smokey. Need to update and show some enthusiasm...waitstaff seem like zombies these days. Pizza is still good. Much nicer pubs in the area that seem to make an effort.
the best pizza – i absolutely love kenneally's pizza, especially with it's thin crust and great sauce.
the pizza it the thing – They have the best thin crust pizza this side of the Mississippi. Love the pizza.
Best Pub Pizza In Town – Kenneally's has the best pub pizza in town, no holds barred. The other appetizers are to die for... potatoes as Irish Nachos, kettle-fried potato chips. Always a Guinness on tap, too.
To Die For........... – Kenneally's pizza is one of the best pizza's in Houston. They do have some competition from Rudyard's located on Waugh. I know it's a pub, but its a bit boring.
Don't forget your bodhran! – This is the best Irish pub outside of Ireland! The Guinness was poured to perfection - they actually let it sit a couple of minutes before finishing the pour. Can't rush a good thing! The live band could have been from Galway - they were spot on! Made me want to run home and get my bodhran and come back and join in! Can't give it 10 'cause it's not in Ireland. ;)
