Best of Houston® 2019: Best Barbecue

Best Barbecue: Killen's Barbecue

Let’s be real, Killen’s Barbecue is. The. Best. Barbecue. Ever. Ronnie Killen found the perfect way to season, cook, and serve ‘cue, but most importantly — he delivers at that level consistently. The menu is simple, no curveballs; sides and desserts satisfy every category of cravings. The Mac and Cheese is saucy and rich. The warm bread pudding is soft and decadent — sweetened condensed milk oozing all over. That brisket, that moist brisket. That brisket so rich, it's got its own Swiss bank account. Killen’s Barbecue is a destination wedding for you and your meat of choice, or three.
