This Unassuming Restaurant In Small-Town Texas Was Voted Number Two In The Nation
It’s no secret that barbecue is one of our main food groups here in Texas, and this small-town restaurant has mastered the craft better than most other joints all across the state. According to Yelp’s “
Best Places to Eat” list, Tender Smokehouse In Celina is the #2 restaurant in the country to check out in 2019. See for yourself:
Having opened in 2017, it only took two years for Tender Smokehouse to earn national recognition. Even more incredible, all that momentum was gained on a limited schedule of just five days a week.
Slow-smoked for hours, the meat is so tender that it practically falls off the bone. Wagyu brisket from a Celina ranch, Yokum smoked sausage, and pickles handmade by a local family ensure freshness and quality are never compromised.
Try a prime brisket sandwich on Texas toast or football-sized spud stuffed to the brim with pulled pork. Mouthwatering sides like pineapple slaw and the cheesiest mac you've ever tasted are scratch-made with flavors that compliment the main dishes.
Several wine selections and on-tap, local beers are a perfect accompaniment to the food. Homemade orange cream + grape soda and root beer straight from Dublin, Texas are also available.
As you can see, there's no shortage of humor here. Quirky decor covers the walls and makes for a fun dining experience you won't soon forget.
Live entertainment brings the whole town together on weekends, creating an upbeat atmosphere the whole family is sure to enjoy. You'll find the restaurant at 224 W. Pecan Celina, TX 75009, but be on the lookout for additional locations to start popping up all across the state!
