Don't wait till you are starving

I stopped to try the smokehouse at around 2 in the afternoon. I was starving. I was on line about 35 minutes! I can't imagine what it is like at a rush time!. I had the sausage brisket combo sandwich and it was awesome. I wish there were more choices of sides. I want to try the chicken next... read more

Home made sausage , tender brisket, tangy pulled pork served up in a combo plate that easily serves two people. Also had individual serving of all the items on the menu plus sandwiches.

I have traveled all over Texas, trying BBQ everywhere I can, and only today found Meyer's Smokehouse in Elgin. Wow. Extraordinary brisket, unbelievable sausage, and a honey mesquite bbq sauce unlike anything I've ever tried. If you're driving through the area, make sure Elgin is on your route and stop here for a meal!

We stopped on a late afternoon lunch and wanted to try this bbq--we have been on a mission to try lots of Texas BBQ. We were on our way back from Round Top. This is a true town home restaurant which usually has great food but this time it lacked anything special. If you put enough sauce on it -then... More

Libbie, I am so sorry you did not have a good experience at Meyer's Smokehouse.Do you mind my asking what meats and sides you had, as well as the day and time you were there? We want our customers to enjoy our food, and this sounds like there was a problem I would like to investigate. Also, do you remember... More

I love the barbecue from Meyers. The atmosphere is down home. Counter served and picnic table. Very involved in the community.

Meyer's really hasn't gone downhill all that much, but in such a competitive genre, they need to try harder. Everything is good. No complaints, but they raised prices and it seems less "homey" than it used to. I do like how they take your order now. Much faster.

My family had a pleasant stop here. We only ordered pork ribs and sides. The ribs were smokey flavoured and moist. And our sides--cole slaw, pinto beans, and mac and cheese--were very tasty. The decor was Texas BBQ nice and the staff very helpful and friendly. I am told that the sausages here are the best.

We stopped in to the Meyer's Smokehouse in Elgin, Texas on the way back from Austin, Texas for a bite of dinner. It was good, but not great. The Brisket had no real smoke flavor on a moistness and tenderness as though it had been in the crock pot all day. The sausages were tasty but greasy and the turkey... More
