There’s lots of barbecue around Houston, and everyone is going to tell you their favorite is the best. But for us, there’s Killen’s and then there’s everyone else. Sure, it’s a solid 30 minute ride south to Pearland where it’s located, but the barbecue is always worth the trip, and it’s a nice excuse to get out of the city. They serve all the staples, like sausage, beef ribs, and pulled pork, but any trip to Killen’s is incomplete without the brisket. This spot definitely draws a crowd, so prepare to stand in line, which typically starts an hour before they open at 11am.
