Perfect seasoning which allows you to taste the meat without being overpowering. Perfect sauce to go along with the perfect meat. Staff is friendly, too.

Another solid BBQ restaurant and competitor to Southside Market down the road. Great selection of meats. I'm a fan of their Brisket and pork loin. They have two really great sauces to choose from as well. The beans here are really good. If you order them as part of your meal, they are self serve. On this visit I ordered... More

The debate for everyone in Elgin... Meyer's or Southside? My vote is for Meyer's, but both are close. Their trimmed smoked brisket and beef sausage is my go to for a plate. The smoked turkey is a favorite of my Mom's. When both my parents visit, we make a effort to get some. If you are feeding a herd, order... More

The line wasn't long but moved slowly that day. Had a large BBQ sandwich for $7.50 that was a little fatty. I could of ordered a lean one for about $1 more. I wouldn't say the size was large, but some where more than medium, and less than large. The meat had a good taste to it and didn't need... More

The menu maybe not as diverse as fine dining but when it comes to Central Texas and their sausage and brisket it allows the family to have casual dining or friends hanging out or going by yourself whether you're picking up for eating in its small-town friendly and family welcoming even to tourists that pass through and definitely not to...

Location: 290 east / right hand side I often take 290 east while en route to Houston, Texas and there are lots of BBQ restaurants along the way. I had never frequented this location and thought I would give them a chance. I went through their drive thru and below are my thoughts. Speed of service: There was one car... More

This is the best barbecue I've ever had anywhere. Do I say it is the best barbecue in Texas? That is an endless argument, and I'll visit every place, but I've been to some of the reputed best, in Texas and outside it, and this is the top. Peerless sausage and tender, melt-in-your mouth brisket, the turkey is excellent also,... More

After eating at Southside Market, I went over to Meyers to look at the sausage. I purchased some summer sausage and the hot smoked sausage. They were excellent!

This was our second visit to Elgin and of course we had to have BBQ. Went to the other BBQ place last time. The staff was great, the ribs were good but the sides were just so so. Pulled pork ok but I have had better brisket.

Patti, Thanks for stopping in. I am glad our people took care of you ,but am sorry you didn't enjoy your stop more. Any specific problems on the sides or brisket would be appreciated, as we are always trying to improve what we serve to our customers. I also did not hear you mention the sausage, as that is what...
