Ken & Sally Courtright
What were you doing in the 1950’s? Sally Casto Courtright was busy in the kitchen at Ken’s on Western preparing some of the best home cooking served on the south side. Ken & Sally Courtright started the family business not realizing their children and grandchildren would one day be restaurant owners themselves. Throughout the timeline evolved such fine establishments as Ken’s on Western, Ken & Vic’s Summerwest, Ken’s Guest House, Courtright’s, Jenny’s Steak House & Pub and Jen’s Guest House. Ken & Sally’s youngest son Carl and his wife Gina opened Jenny’s Steak House with Chef Juan Zavala and a few partners in 2001. Carl’s intentions were to provide customers with a comfortable dining experience just like his mom did 50+ years ago. Now into the 3rd generation Carl’s son Todd is taking over the helm. Todd is also focusing on his grandmothers favorite recipes along with an infusion of trending fare. When Todd is not there you will be greeted by partner Jean Braun or one of our amazing staff members, many of whom have been with the family for over 20 years. If you are in the neighborhood we welcome you to stop by and enjoy one of our delicious home cooked meals and a beverage or two. We look forward to serving you soon!
