Killen's Story

Killen's Steakhouse chef/owner Ronnie Killen went from opening a barbecue restaurant in Pearland to the top of his class at the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in London to launching one of Houston's best steakhouses to, wait for it, opening a barbecue restaurant in Pearland. As for his ambitions for Killen's BBQ, he says "I don't want to be the barbecue place that has the best brisket. I don't want to be the barbecue place with the best sausage. I want to be the best barbecue place period." The race to replace newly crowned Franklin BBQ atop Texas Monthly's top 50 starts now. [CultureMap]
