The wait for Killen’s is over.
The new restaurant by award-winning chef Ronnie Killen, located at 101 Heights Blvd., is set to open Wednesday and will serve southern food staples such as fried chicken.
Since announcing the concept would take over the former Hickory Hollow space, Killen’s has occasionally held pop-up events in the parking lot to give neighbors a taste of what was to come.
The restaurant is taking reservations on OpenTable.com.
