Barbecue
Established in 2013, Killen's BBQ marked a return to one of Ronnie Killen's first loves. It was born out of a desire to retain the heart and soul of the old school BBQ cook offs of his youth while bringing a Le Cordon Bleu trained eye to the medium. That desire quickly took Killen's BBQ from pet project to national acclaim. Simply put, it's the best BBQ, period!

    Food was good, but portions have gotten smaller on BBQ plates. Service felt rushed from beginning, and felt rushed to pay and leave.

    The food was great. We went at 7pm where some food were already out. The waiter was too busy so the service felt a bit neglected as they were waiting on a lot of tables.

    To say this was a huge disappointment is putting it politely. You make reservations and when you arrive they seat you directly in front of the drink station and within arms reach of people folding napkins with a table thrown together and wobbling and everytime someone opens the back door you have to hold down the table clothe to keep it from spilling over into your food and drinks. This door is clearly marked to use the front but some people can’t read and killens doesn’t lock it from the inside. Then you show up two hours before closing and half the meat is already sold out so you pick another entree and after waiting 25+ minutes the waiter proceeds to tell us they are all out of baked potatoes lol. We have eaten there on numerous occasions with stellar 5 star results, hence the reason we went back. Everything just felt off, from the hostess to the server and the food. Maybe we should have picked 5pm instead of 7pm. All this to say, we could have spent the $120.00+ somewhere else.

    First Texan BBQ and didn't disappoint! Our waiter was great, really helpful with recommendations and we had a great meal. I just know that I will never again taste such perfectly made sausages unless I get to come back one day.
