Meyer's in Elgin

When you walk into Meyer's there are printed brochure menus on a small stand. It wasn't busy when we enterd, but my guess is these are helpful if you have to wait in line during peak times. Further down from the entry is a meat market, then the point from where you can order. Here there's a big... read more

Living in Texas and traveling a lot I get to try BBQ from across the US and taste the different styles. I like all styles and Meyer's is definitely an awesome Texas BBQ with their own sausage. The service is fast like most BBQ restaurants, go through the line and pick out what you want. If you are in the... More

1515cc, Thanks so much for stopping to try our bbq. The pintos and brisket season are my fathers recipes, the bbq sauce came from my grandmother. The pork sausage was from many generations back, brought over from Germany by my great grandfather. We are always grateful to hear others appreciate it as much as we do (almost every day). Hope...

This past weekend we travelled to Houston from Dallas for an event but when we were ready to head back to Dallas we decided to take the long way home....instead... More

So my bf and I visited Meyer's on a recent trip to Elgin to compare it to the competitor down the street. The service was exceptional, which definitely sets it apart. The nice lady behind the counter took the time to thoroughly explain to us about their sausage and instead of charging us for an entire meal, let us sample... More

Ladeep, Thanks so much for stopping by. We love for our folks to give out samples, one taste and you tend to get hooked. Was it the vinegar sauce on the table you weren't crazy about? That is not everyones cup of tea, but it's traditional to have it on the table in these parts. Thanks, Gregg Meyer More

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.

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!
