Ronnie Killen’s latest restaurant undercuts the traditional Tex-Mex versus Mex-Mex restaurant debate by serving both. Barbecue influenced Tex-Mex dishes like brisket enchiladas and short rib tamales join traditional Mexican dishes like a tuna tostada and scallops with green mole. Signature Killen dishes get new interpretations; for example, beef short rib comes in barbacoa form topped with an adobo sauce; creamed corn gets stuffed into empanadas; and pork belly gets smoked with the skin on before being fried up chicharrones-style. By the way, it all happens in the best-looking dining room Killen operates.
