Killen’s Steakhouse

Killen’s Steakhouse is a fantastic addition to The Woodlands.  To have the pedigree of Ronnie Killen as a chef and restauranteur here is a great asset to our area.  He graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in London first in his class and with the Honor of Distinction.  This is the same institute that trained Julia Child. And this chef knows his way around fine dining as well as barbecue, burgers,  and tacos. Killen’s Steakhouse has a variety of USDA Prime beef, Japanese Wagyu and Gulf Coast seafood. One of the most popular options is the Texas Wagyu.  They have wet aged and dry aged steaks to choose from.  They even have a sirloin flight with four different pedigrees of meat.   I always order a filet and it is fantastic here. It is one of the best I’ve ever had.  My husband loves the dry aged ribeye.  They have quality beef and prepare it expertly. Actually,  the very best thing on their menu is the macaroni and cheese.  I’m a bit of a nut about mac n cheese and theirs is fantastic.  No matter which of his restaurants I go to, I always order it. Comfort food at its best, It’s like the best hug from your best grandmother, in a bowl. The brussels sprouts are also amazing, causing people who don’t even normally  like them to fight over the last few. My favorite appetizers are the smoked crab cocktail with homemade potato chips and the Korean BBQ wagyu skewers. The Gulf snapper is a great non steak entree as well as the beautifully prepared fried shrimp. Their wine list will please all budgets and levels of wine expertise and enthusiasm.  Rounding out the menu are some very worthy desserts such as the Creme Brûlée bread pudding and a decadent chocolate truffle cheesecake.  The after dinner cocktail menu is divine if that is where the night takes you.
