Chef Ronnie Killen has long been known as one of Houston’s best BBQ pitmasters and steakhouse chefs. But now the Houston native has branched out into custom burgers. Killen’s Burgers maintains the look of a 1950s-style diner and specializes in expertly cooked burgers and sandwiches.
The restaurant, in the former Killen’s Steakhouse location, has already gained the acclaim of Texans superstar J.J. Watt whose #99 Burger is a top seller. The Wisconsin transplants’ burger consists of two 10-ounce patties with Nueske’s bacon, Wisconsin cheddar, and fried cheese curds on the side. The menu also includes hot dogs, a grilled chicken sandwich, fried chicken club, sweet potato and regular fries and onion rings. Killen’s also includes an old-fashioned soda fountain, craft beers, and homemade milkshakes.
Ronnie Killen’s Steakhouse and BBQ restaurants have been acclaimed nationally by the Washington Post and Food Network as well as receiving numerous culinary awards like The Daily Meal’s “top 50 steakhouses in America” and My Table’s “Chef of the Year”.
