Note:      Many of the early Kenney's Drive-In burger locations in Virginia originally started as a Biff-Burger Drive-In. (see notes)    After a few years, the franchise owner of those Biff-Burgers in Virginia, founded Kenney's Drive-In after his last name and changed the name of those earlier Biff-Burger locations to his new restaurant name in 1962.

On October 4, 1962, all Biff-Burger locations that were owned and francised by William "Bill" Kenney became known as Kenney Burger Drive-Ins, or simply refered to as "Kenney's", during an advertising ploy in which Mr. Kenney Burger married Miss Biff Burger. (Click here to see the advertisment). Many of the same menu items offered at the former Biff-Burger locations were also offered at the new Kenney's locations during the early years. Below is a listing of three (3) Kenney locations that are still OPEN   (as of July 2011).  For a complete listing of former "Closed" Kenney locations, see notes.
