Williams Smokehouse BBQ and Blues, an old-school traditional Texas barbecue concept with a Creole-modern twist, will open this summer at Sugar Land Town Square.
Sugar Land natives Kennis Williams, along with co-founder Furrest Greenwood, will bring the barbecue restaurant to a 5,500-square-foot space, including a patio, at 2105 Lone Star Drive, Sugar Land, according to an April 25 news release.
“Growing up, one of my fondest memories was walking into a smoky nightclub in Wallis, Texas and watching my Uncle Earl play along side the late great B.B. King,” said Williams in the release. “Fast forward to a few years later, I started to become infatuated with the smell of pecan wood burning as my uncles would fire up the barbecue pits in the early mornings at 6 am. I thought to myself, these two things that I love – blues music and barbecue - belong together.”
The barbeque restaurant will bring a variety of items, including smoked stuffed turkey legs filled with dirty rice and topped with shrimp and sausage alfredo sauce; homemade armadillo eggs made with homemade sausage, wrapped around a smoked gouda stuffed jalapeno wrapped with bacon; and Creole candy smoked wings. www.sugarlandtownsquare.com
