Having been to some of the great Texas BBQ joints in Luling and Lockhart we were looking forward to this experience. Overall while the price was moderate the food was disappointing! We had a 3 meat plate and a 2 meat plate Found the ribs and brisket very average and a bit fatty. The sausage was tasty but just full... More

I do a lot of smoke cooking at home and always love to try new smokehouse that I find. This place is a great place to get a nicely prepared meal.

Perfect for the hungry traveler on the way out of town after watching the F1 race. Good was so-so, we didn't get sausage, and that seemed to be the meal to order. Brisket was dry, and chicken kind of blah, sauces a mystery, but overall the place was clean and fine.

Well I am not a fan of leaving poor reviews. But I'm a fan of posting the facts. My brisket was on the dry side. But I hear this is the place to go for sausage - which I didn't order. So if you are a sausage lover - this might be your place! Ordering is strange. We had 10... More

One of the best briskest I've ever ate. So tender and juicy. Loved how the meat are juicy and flavorful. I don't even need to splatter BBQ sauce on it and still get that smoky BBQ taste.

As a resident of Elgin I have the pleasure of visiting either of the prominent BBQ restaurants in town. I prefer Meyers simply due to overall flavor of the different meats. Personally, I will buy Meyers sausage and grill it myself, but it is a great family restaurant to go relax, have a cold beverage, and enjoy good home-style BBQ.... More

We had a taste for good bbq, so we stopped in at Meyers. I use to drive from Cypress to Elgin just to purchase brisket to bring home for dinner. Something has happen to the quality of these products! The flavor is gone! I purchased a brisket sandwich, bread was cold, and it was not appealing. This use to be... More

I really prefer Meyers as to some of the other BBQ places. They have a great pulled pork plate or sandwich. My personal favorite for plates is the Smoked Turkey. I cannot eat beef so this is a great choice for me. The turkey is not dry like so many other places. The pulled pork is not overly spicy and... More

I gave this place multiple chances but came to the same conclusion each time. Their brisket is the worst I've had. Ever. And I've been to over 80 of Texas' best bbq places. It's not moist. The smoke ring was completely grey. Tasted and felt and even smelled like yesterday's meat. The ribs were just as bad if not worse!!... More

This place was terrible. Got brisket, turkey, and sausage to go. No flavor. The sauce was terrible. Place was recommended. Wish we had stopped at Southside Market. Learned a lesson.
