Fans of Ronnie Killen’s steaks might find themselves in The Woodlands more often.

Killen’s Steakhouse, an award-winning steakhouse with one location in Pearland, is opening its second Houston-area location in The Woodlands, according to a post from the restaurant’s official Facebook page. The restaurant will open in an 8,500-square-foot space at 1700 Research Forest Drive, per the post. The Houston office of Chicago-based JLL is marketing the space for sale.

It’s unclear if the deal has closed or when the restaurant will open; Killen’s couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. JLL declined to comment. JLL’s marketing materials for the property note that it’s only one of a handful of restaurant properties available for purchase in The Woodlands.

Ronnie Killen is behind several restaurants in Houston. Aside from the steakhouse, he also runs Killen’s Barbecue, Killen’s Burgers and Killen’s STQ, a steakhouse-barbecue concept that opened in 2016. Earlier this year, Killen was nominated in the James Beard Awards’ Best Chef Southwest category.

Killen’s Steakhouse was recently recognized for something other than its steaks, too. The restaurant was one of two Houston-area restaurants to make OpenTable’s 2018 100 Best Restaurants for Wine Lovers list. The steakhouse has a wine room and wine cellar that have over 5,000 bottles combined, according to a Killen’s Steakhouse spokesperson. The wine tower in the center of the dining room features another 680 bottles.
