Starting on Main Street in Downtown Noble, Kendall’s is a family owned restaurant with home-style cooking using recipes passed down from their family. What they are also known for is their Chicken Fry Challenge. Owners Kimberly Lock and Dee Downer talk about the restaurant, advice for those thinking about taking on the food challenge, their Oklahoma pop-culture walls, and how you’ll feel like family when visiting.
