“A barbeque heaven”
A barbeque heaven for those who eat meat. The Brisket, The Ribs, and the Slaw are some of the best in Texas. If you are brave enough to wait in line for a little you'll be rewarded with some seriously scrumptious BBQ.
Visitors to Texas expect barbecue, but often get steered astray. Houston has a handful of worthy practitioners of the art of smoked meat, but a short journey south to Pearland will reward you with an experience worth bragging about. Ronnie Killen, chef-owner of nearby Killen's Steakhouse, churns out brisket, pork ribs and sausage that would make any BBQ fan weep with smoky, fatty joy. The real trick here, though, is the beef rib. Sold by the piece and worth every penny of the $18/lb. price tag, it's a meaty masterpiece. Peppery bark gives way to meat slicked with perfectly rendered fat, the whole thing exhibiting a smokiness that somehow manages to be forceful and genteel in equal measure, creating a hunk of meat both thoughtful and atavistic. This is fine dining served up on butcher paper in a former elementary school cafeteria.
