When a new BBQ joint opens in North Texas, we all hold our breath and wait to see what the result will be and what the people will say. Will the brisket compare to the best? Will they sell out? Are their sides any good? And then Tender BBQ in Celina Texas slides into town and that knocks the socks off of every resident in North Texas and then continues to take on the world.
How Tender BBQ in Celina Texas Is Taking Over the World
With the hundreds of barbecue joints in the metroplex, it’s hard to know which to choose.
But Tender Smokehouse is literally smoking out the competition and was recently voted #2 BBQ in the country! Yes, you read that right, in the USA!
Opening up in Downtown Celina historical Square is a little place called Tender Smokehouse.
You can find it here:
They serve up items on the menu such as lean brisket, and locally sourced sausage in regular and jalapeño-cheddar varieties will rock your mouth’s world. The killer mac and cheese will go down nice and easy. And if you order a side of barbecue beans you’ll be surprised with chunks of brisket.
Save room for dessert, and order up a cup of the banana pudding.
Its nice to see a BBQ restaurant put just as much attention on their desserts like banana pudding.

What bout the other great Texas BBQ joints?
You can find the other finger licking good bbq joints through their sauces and cookbooks delivered throughout the world.
This is a New York Times Bestseller and if you’ve visited Austin then you know a cookbook from a BBQ joint that has an 8 hour wait is going to be a big deal. This book offers a complete meat and brisket-cooking education from Franklin Barbecue.
Sure, we know you’ve all heard about Hutchins BBQ and Pecan Lodge and many of these places and they are all worth the wait line.
But you have to try Tender the next time you are in Celina because when it eventually takes over the world, you’ll be able to say you were there from the beginning in little ol Celina. In fact, they’ve already opened up in Frisco and they hired a PR agency years ago to take this thing to the the top.
