The best smokhouse in the area

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

Blah blah blah. Sorry, maybe it wasn't the best I've had it didn't taste like it was cooked that day.

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

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.
