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.

Meyer's has the best sausage. Everyone should try the garlic pork sausage, it's actually the reason we stopped here in the first place and we weren't disappointed. It is awesome. Also tried the ribs and they were also tasty. We bought plenty of sausage to bring home. We will definitely go back again.

IGhamiltontx, Thanks for stopping in. I am so glad you enjoyed the garlic sausage. That was one of the three sausage we made when my grandfather started the company in the 40s. Please come back and see us again soon. Thanks, Gregg Meyer, Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse More

This restaurant is very casual (cafeteria style) but the food is terrific. It's a great place to meet friends, get great food, and sit and talk for a while. No one hurries you out. The menu isn't extensive, but it does make for a very complete meal. It lives up to its reputation!

Linda, Thanks so much for stopping by our restaurant. We are always glad to hear from customers that enjoyed their stop. We cook for our customers, but most would be surprised how much we partake of the goodies as well. Hope you have a great 4th of July. Thanks, Gregg Meyer, Meyer's Elgin Smokehouse More

It's neighbor(Southside) is more famous, however when I'm in Elgin I prefer to stop at Meyers. Smaller, and I prefer their food/sauce to the other. REAL good BBQ and a friendly, more "homey" atmosphere. Eat there and enjoy!

Pulled pork sandwich was delicious. Beef brisket had a lot of meat, but nothing special. Wish I had been there on the weekend and could have tried their jalapeño and cheese sausage - sounds absolutely delicious. Creamed corn and potato salad were okay. Sides brought up the price of the meal (next time I'll get a plate with two sides).

Been eating at Meyer's since they dug the Colorado River. It is still the best Sausage in Texas or perhaps the World. Just sorry that I live so far away from it. I am a little shocked at the price, a meal for two with drinks cost $27. On the other hand, the potato salad is excellent and so are... More

Meyer's is one of my favorite places to stop. I LOVE the pork sausage links. The rest of my family likes the beef links. I could eat the brisket for days! Anytime I'm driving through Elgin, if I don't have time to stop and eat, I make it a point to drive through!

The brisket did not impress - non BBQ places serve very similar fare. The sausage was not to my liking at all - perhaps just personal preference, but I didn't like the taste. The pork ribs were pretty good although ribs aren't my thing. And the creamed corn was pretty standard thin creamed corn like you can find in a... More
