Our History

Tom and Lois Kenning

Kennings Circle K was founded August 3, 1976 by Lois and Tom Kenning. Originally named the Circle K Steak Ranch and themed with western flair, this little steakhouse offered good food and drink paired with friendly customer service at modest prices. An oversight in the telephone directory listed the “Steak Ranch” under horseback riding stables in the Yellow Pages during its first year in business and from that time on the restaurant became know as “Kennings Circle K”

As the years passed the menu expanded and private party rooms were added to accommodate groups from 20 to 70 people.

On July 4th, 1993 Kennings introduced the BBQ Ribs and Chicken Cookout, a novelty carry-out promotion where BBQ Ribs and Chicken are cooked and sold in the front parking lot.

Today catering services are also offered to our valued customers. For the do-it-yourselfer, we can deliver your order or for those with a desire for full-service, we can set up, serve, and clean up so that you can enjoy your special occasion worry free.
