This is a really good place to stop for a quick lunch or even dinner. The food is really good and we enjoyed it! The portions were ample and we had leftovers for later. The service was great and more than accommodating! Definitely one of...More

Growing up, my papaw would only serve Meyers Garlic sausage when he bbq’d, and Meyers was where we’d stop into when we were in the area. When I moved to Austin over a decade ago, I made a point to swing out that way regularly,...More

I had the two meat plate of sausage and brisket with Mac-n-cheese and coleslaw. Water to drink and that ran just under $14. Sausage had good favor and texture, but they apparently either don’t have or were out of jalapeño sausage. Brisket was tender, but...More

If you're from Texas, you know everyone has an opinion on what makes good barbecue. The sauce is too thick, or too vinegary, or too sweet. Where's the smoke line? Why is chicken in a barbecue restaurant? Then there's Memphis barbecue, and North Carolina, and...More

Description
Meyers Elgin Smokehouse BBQ and Retail Market is the best of both worlds. Stop by and enjoy some authentic Texas bbq. Or if you have a big shindig you are cooking for, stop at the retail market for some of our famous Elgin sausage our family has been making in Elgin for 4 generations. If you just need a snack for the road, pick up some our mouth watering jerky, summer sausage or dried sausage.
