Houston-based eatery BB's Tex-Orleans will open this fall at 25635 Hwy. 59, Kingwood, according to Maricela Bassler, chief brand officer for BB's Tex-Orleans. The eatery will feature boiled crawfish, po’boys, and homemade gumbo and other Cajun-inspired menu items as well as a full-service bar. The new location comes after the eatery opened a pop-up trailer in Valley Ranch Town Center for three months in March 2020.

CEO and founder Brooks Bassler said in an emailed statement opening a location in Kingwood fit all the restaurant's qualifications, including the building being a second-generation restaurant and being accessible.

"[Plus] we have received many requests for a BB's in Kingwood," Bassler said.

The Kingwood eatery is one of three locations opening this year, with the other two being in Tomball and San Antonio. There are 10 other BB's Tex-Orleans locations in the Houston area. www.bbstexorleans.com
