Best steakhouse in Houston

I had heard about it several times but finally had the opportunity to visit today. It was amazing. I love steak and only rank this behind Cut. The only reason I rank it behind Cut is that I prefer the ribeye if I am going to eat real Japanese steak. The pork belly appetizer rivals Chef Jared's at... read more

Went there to treat my daughter upon her graduation from Rice. This is our second visit and the steaks are as good as the first time. We had wet-aged bone-in ribeye, dry-aged NY strip, dry-aged ribeye and American Wagyu ribeye. All are excellent with simple seasoning. We had steak fries, creamed corn (excellent), and asparagus.

We went to Killen's for the first time to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. We had the calamari for an appetizer. We ordered and shared the 44 Farms All Natural Beef, Cameron, Texas. It was one of the most tenderest steaks I've ever had. The sides were au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach.

Two of us shared the tasting menu with 4 different 4-ounce steaks. Each steak was distinct and they were all amazing. The marbled Australian cut and the Japanese Waygu are probably the best steaks I've ever tasted. The waiter was friendly and struck the perfect balance between being there when we needed him, and disappearing while we ate. It was... More

Let me start with this is a great restaurant and I have been here several times and while I had another excellent meal, there are a couple items that I need to point out. First, let me suggest that you check out the menu, they have an excellent variety of steak including True 100% Japanese Wagyu From The Kagoshima Prefecture.(very... More

Don't let the outside fool you. Amazing atmosphere. The variety of beef offered is over the top. Wet aged, dry aged and Wagyu beef oh my. The current Filet Mignon Flight is a great sample of beef. And the dry aged is so flavorful. We didn’t realize how good until we tried the dry age. Everything is done full out... More

Melt in your mouth steaks, whether you order filet, rib eye, or sirloin. All fantastic! Crab cakes to die for. I have loved everything I have eaten at Killen's and they have a very nice wine selection too. Worth the expense for special occasions.

Went there in early December for a ritual steak dinner with my Grand-Nephew. In summary, all the great things written about this five star steak house are true and then some. Place is pretty intimate with a reasonable crowd noise but very warm feeling. Food was terrific, especially the steaks (multiple selections based on sources) and the local things like... More
