The basics: Over in the oldest town in Tomball, this sweet and smokey chocolate and barbecue joint is absolutely killing the game. As the name suggests, Tejas started as a small bean-to-bar chocolate business and eventually expanded into smoked meats when it realized the area’s barbecue scene was lacking. Today, it’s regarded as one of the best spots around Houston for slow-smoked, USDA certified 100% all-natural Prime grade Brisket (don’t forget the burnt ends) alongside other standouts including Pork Belly and Ribs, Chile Relleno Sausages, and daily specials like Barbacoa Tacos, Pastrami Beef Ribs, and Tejas Cheesesteak Wraps. Yes, you can get truffles and chocolate bars to-go, too.
What the pitmasters say: “I love Tejas for their creative sausages and chocolate.” - Quy Hoang, Blood Bros. BBQ
