Faithful fans of Ronnie Killen’s Pearland-set Killen’s Steakhouse and Killen’s Burgers were elated for the 2016 arrival of the talent’s centrally-set Killen’s STQ. The acclaimed chef’s first Houston outpost unfolds along Voss Road, in the space most recently home to Bramble, where guests can expect a hybrid barbecue-steakhouse concept with a farm-to-table influence.
Inside, the cozy space makes room for a dozen tables with an open kitchen, but don’t expect stuffy—linen-topped tables and crisp subway tiles contrast with palette-wrapped ceilings and Edison bulb pendants. On the daily menu, guests will find pasta selections, fresh catch and steaks, as well as off-menu options that could include anything from foie gras to A5 Wagyu from Japan. If it’s available, don’t miss the bread pudding, which features croissant dough flown in daily from Philadelphia.
Killen’s STQ is open for dinner-only, Monday through Saturday. Valet parking is complimentary.
