Tejas Burger Joint, a new sister restaurant to Tejas Chocolate and Barbecue in Tomball, has finally opened its doors.
The restaurant announced its arrival on Instagram on Tuesday. It’s completely devoted to the Tejas smokehouse burger, which first gained notoriety as a special at Tejas Chocolate and Barbecue, known for its primo smoked meats and luxurious chocolate bars and truffles. Originally, the restaurant was expected to debut sometime in late summer or early fall, but it took a little longer than expected.
For those who are unfamiliar with Tejas’s smokehouse burger, the restaurant prepares its signature offering with wagyu beef patties, then it’s topped off with bacon and cheese before being piled on to a pillowy potato bun. It’s seriously a beaut, scope out photos of the burger and the new space below:
