Needing some pizza and beers, and you’re in the downtown area, have no fear, come here. This clean, well lit pizza joint serves up some nice pies! Guinness, Switchback, Backseat Berner, Couch Surfer, Nawch Hoppa and Limited Access are usually ones I tend to like here. It’s loud here, so it’s easy to take kids with the TV’s usually blaring with various sports events. Still, I go back.

Kens is a great place to grab a bit and have a beer. Always get a good solid meal, great sandwiches and I love the pub feel. Good selection of beer. I enjoy the vibe of the bar side much more than the pizza side but food and beer great anywhere you sit.

ken's is a sleeper spot....they serve up a very nice pizza...i'm from new york so i hope i know pizza and ken's pizza is very very's a good local place with nice pints of switchback and some other local brews on tap...the tv's are going with sports, the bartenders shoot the gift, and the place offers a low key down low feel with it's color and decor....a perfect spot to unwind with a nice pizza and beer...i'm a bit surprised it doesn't get its just due because i have had pizza at many spots in burlington and even stowe...i went to all the pizza specialty spots and not a single one puts ken's to shame...ken's pizza isn't made with the rarest ingredients or outside of the box's just basic pizza delivered up tasty nice and hot...go for it

This is a fun spot in the summer. When you have to sit inside it is crapped. Long bar inside with a good locals and sports on the TV. Ok draft selection of local brews and maybe one or two exports. Nothing to out there. Booths inside are very small. But outside on church street it is nice to have a beer with friends. I am unhappy that they served my beer to me in plastic fake pint glasses. Something about drinking out of it made me unhappy. I asked why and they said it was the rules for outside seating in Burlington. I can tell you it is the only place in Burlington that has plastic for their outside section. I think it is just a load of broken glass and they got sick of it! Don't make the people suffer! Buy some more glass please. But overall an ok place with ok food.

This is the place we would always go to before concerts when I lived in Vermont. Good place for a cheap beer or meal. The beer selection is decent but nothing to write home about. They've got the usual Vermont beers (Magic Hat, Long Trail, Otter Creek ) plus some other micro's and the usual macro's.They have pretty good pizza, calzones and other items on their menu.

If you're looking for someplace fancy, Ken's Pizza isn't for you.

If you're looking for a good, quick, cheap meal, give it a try.

Located on Church street in Burlington. The establishment was divided into two railroad style sections, one being the pizzeria and the other the bar. The pizza menu was pretty good, offering appetizers, hot and cold sandwiches and of course pizza. The food was pretty decent as well considering I am used to authentic NY pizza.

The bar are was a bit worn looking but did feature some local gems. The selection included Otter Creek, Trout River, Magic Hat, Shed and a few macros. Seems like it would make a nice local haunt.

Located on Church Street in downtown Burlington, VT. This place has been seperated into The Pub and Ken's Pizza for years with seperate entrys and the same menu. Now that there is no smoking in Burlington bars, this means less. Shed, Switchback, Otter Creek, Magic Hat, and Long Trail plus Seasonal Sam Adams might turn the heads of a BA, but the selection goes quickly downhill from there. The pizza is great as long as you order it by the pie and not by the slice. I wouldn't recommend stopping in unless you plan on ordering a pie, in which case you'll be satisfied that you went.
