Killen’s Barbecue, a staple local barbecue restaurant with a location in Pearland, is expected to open a location at the William P. Hobby Airport at 7800 Airport Blvd., Houston.
Killen’s Barbecue serves classic Texas barbecue, including brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage and turkey available by the pound, on plates or on sandwiches. Executive Chef Ronnie Killen also has other Killen’s restaurants, including Tex-Mex, steakhouses and a burger joint.
The airport’s expansion of its concessions is part of a 10-year agreement that is projected to generate over $100 million in revenue for Houston Airports, according to a press release. Over 200 staff are expected to be hired for all the new concession locations.
