Boy howdy, hearty BBQ and fixin's.

Our aunt took us here for lunch while we were visiting family in Texas. We heard quite a bit about Meyers from friends and family for a while, and actually had breakfast with lady Meyer back in 2011 before we ever heard of the BBQ restaurant. None of which really means anything. The food is... read more

Meyer's is always a stop on the way home to Houston from Austin. This time we picked up brisket, sausage, and potato salad to eat for dinner when we got home. Loved it!

We had the ranch hand bowl and the brisquit & sausage plate. Sausage recipe is from 1880's and unique. Some of the best Texas style Bar B Q we have ever eaten. Bring your appetite!

I stopped to pick up brisket and beef sausage, and then I asked the woman taking my order what her favorite side is. She said creamed corn, so I ordered a pint of that, too. The brisket is very good, and they price was a little lower than what other joints charge, but we had mouthfuls that ran a little... More

My husband and I both got the 3 meat plate with ribs, Brisket and sausage. The brisket was good and tender, the sausage was quite greasy. . I was expecting alot better. Their hit sauce that was on the table was very good.. and their pickles were amazing. The portions were huge and we both packed a To go box.

Wow the staff, the owner, and the food is always the best it can be. I have been here numerous times, bring family and friends when they come from out of town, and I never go wrong here. Amazing moist bbq, pork steak that melts in your mouth, and awesome sweet tea. Love this restaurant.

On a Saturday evening around 19:00, took 20 mins (no exaggeration) to get two chopped beef sandwiches, two large drinks and a side of potato salad. If one was to take the top bun off, it may make for a half decent meat:bread ratio. The chopped beef was too finely ground, greasy, and mixed their unpalatable sauce. Poor flavor all... More

Adriene D, I am sorry you had such a bad experience at our restaurant. Could you help me out to find out what happened on your visit. Was there a line or was the service just slow? I know they were short handed Saturday night, which does not excuse poor service, I just want to make sure we fix problems... More

Family style service inside but it also has a great drive thru service. Quick and efficient. Hope the drive home isn't too long as the smell is intoxicating.
