The new BB.Q Chicken location will replace the now-shuttered Texadelphia restaurant at 8383 Westheimer Suite 114, between Fondren and Hillcroft. No opening date has been set, however, the business' Instagram post said it anticipates a September opening.

The restaurant chain has a location in Katy and several others across Texas. The chain plans to open more than 55,000 locations across the globe, including the one on Westheimer, according to Eater Houston.
