HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Killen’s Steakhouse acquired a shuttered restaurant property in The Woodlands which will be re-opened under the Killen’s flag this spring.
An opening is anticipated within 60 days at 1700 Research Dr. in Shenandoah – an 8,500-SF restaurant in turn-key condition. The building, developed in 2013 on 2.35 acres, is located on one of the busiest thoroughfares in The Woodlands.
The award-winning Killen’s Steakhouse is one of five family-owned concepts of Chef Ronnie Killen, a Pearland native and 2018 recipient of a James Beard Award as one of the 12 best chefs in the Southwest.
Killen’s Steakhouse, launched 13 years ago, is widely considered Greater Houston’s “best of the best” in the steakhouse category, serving the highest quality steak, including Japanese Wagyu, Gulf Coast seafood and signature desserts. The destination steakhouse was one of two restaurants in Greater Houston to make OpenTable’s 2018 100 Best Restaurants for Wine Lovers list.
Chef Killen also has created stand-alone brands specializing in barbecue, burgers and Mexican food in Pearland and Houston.
J.J. McDermott and Jon Jamison of NewQuest Properties represented Killen. “We showed him one location,” McDermott recalls, “and then Bob’s Steak & Chophouse closed so we took the opportunity to him. He liked the building from the beginning.”
The seller of the building, TSS Realty LLC, was represented by Mark Raines and Matt Parsons in JLL’s Houston office.
