Tejas Chocolate & BBQ

Tejas Chocolate & Barbecue
A barbecue joint that offers world-class smoked meats alongside handmade chocolate sounds like the perfect idea, and owners Scott & Greg Moore and Michelle Holland have delivered just that in Old Town Tomball.

As co-owner Scott Moore often says, he and his brother Greg and partner Michelle started making barbecue to supplement their chocolate addiction. And indeed, both the chocolate and the barbecue here are addictive. There’s a ever-evolving menu of creative items to embellish the great trinity at Tejas Chocolate & BBQ – soups in the winter are worth looking out for and the barbacoa tacos and queso-drenched brisket nachos are mouthwatering just to think about.

One recent addition to the menu – smoked burgers – became so popular that they spun-off a whole new burger joint down the street. The nearby Tejas To-Go Market includes vacuum-packed versions of their menu items for re-heating at home. And of course don’t miss the chocolate display as you wait to place your order in the main restaurant.
