Varied cuisine of Mexican and American -which reflect culinary traditions of our hometown. Kelly's is committed to using the freshest available items, and to cook for you as we do for our families. Dine In or Carry out. Kelly's has been a family-owned business since it was founded in 1952 as a drinking establishment, catering to local blue collar workers. In 1984, upon the retirement of the founder and family patriarch, Kelly's shifted its focus to include dining.  Kelly's offers several menu items that can be packaged for reheating. We also have many selections to assist you with party planning. The staff of Kelly's hopes that you enjoy the time you spend with us, and please let us know how we can further serve you.
