meat lover's paradise

Made a special detour to try the barbecue. Wasn't disappointed on the quality of the meats. Definately worth the trip. One of the best in Texas.

The BBQ here is very good! But the brisket is awesome great flavor and very moist sooo delicious! Mac is was also good. If your heading in or out of Austin stop by you won't be disappointed.

Cyndee G, Thanks so much for stopping by. I am so glad you enjoyed the brisket. We smoke and cook those rascals about 16 hours on our pits, so it's always good to see the time and effort we put into our meats appreciated. Hope you find time to stop in again sometime. Thanks, Gregg Meyer, Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse 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.

Tom Brady, Thanks so much for stopping in. I am so glad you enjoyed our food, especially the pulled pork. That's mighty high praise coming from a South Carolinian. If you ever get over to Anderson, S.C., you might want to stop by the Pompous Pig. We have been shipping them our good sausage for several years now. Tell George... More

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!

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 time,... More

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

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.
