Last Wednesday, September 18, a new restaurant opened its doors for business at 324 West Kennedale Parkway in the former location of Annie Lane?s.
?
The restaurant sits back off of the main stretch of road through Kennedale and across the street from Tire Plus and P & P Mart. It is in a small white wood frame house and it does have that simple ?down home? feel.
?
Cynthia McKnight, the owner and chef, had a similar restaurant for 7 years {{more}}in Grand Prairie. She said that this is a family owned and operated business.
?
She had been looking for another location when one of the residents [of Kennedale], John Amos, told her about this building.
?
?So I came out here and looked at it and saw that it was a pretty good building, a pretty good location and it seemed like a small town and [I liked that] because I am from a real small town,” said McKnight. “I am from Texas but the family is from Louisiana.?
?
When the Kennedale News ask why this type of food? ?McKnight replied ?That is what the family does. It is a family business. It is a family recipe? and she laughed and added, ?And it is a secret.?
?
She said that she was pleased, very happy with the crowds so far.
?
