The name stands for “steaks” and “barbecue,” Ronnie Killen’s dual claims to fame at his hugely popular places in Pearland. But in this, his first Houston venue, the ’cue has a bit part, showing up in interesting dishes like brisket pappardelle, not on a three-meat plate. Meats and fish of all types—a fabulous tomahawk pork chop, a crusty Gulf crab cake—have featured roles, but the star turn goes, of course, to red meat, like our wagyu-Angus ribeye, cooked flawlessly on a wood-burning grill. The place still has the weathered wood and white subway tiles of its former occupant, Bramble, which makes it feel less predictable and more creative than the three-initial name might suggest.
