Dining Guide

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.

      For steakhouse, barbecue or burgers, yes. STQ is actually in Houston proper. 😉

      STQ is not in Pearland.
