Great BBQ, entertaining watching all the action behind the counter as dozens of meals are being prepared. Excellent carry out meals for holidays.

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

We stopped at Meyer's Smokehouse as part of our BBQ Trail tour. We ordered brisket and sausage. It was just okay or slightly below-average. You can find better BBQ at other stops on the trail.More

Dear Wandering Toes, Thanks for stopping by. I wish you had given a bit more feedback as to what you felt was the problem with the brisket or sausage. Sounds like we were having an off day, as the sausage is what we are famous...More

After taste testing the local sausages, I think Meyer's falls short--especially when it comes to their "beef" sausage. It contains soy products--not what I want to see or taste when I'm paying for a locally made BEEF sausage. Also, the portion sizes are small; size...More

Birdinhand, Im sorry we didnt do a better job of pleasing you on your visit. The soy that goes in the beef sausage is a very miniscule amount (less than 2%) and is added to help retain juciness in the sausage. I have talked to...More

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.
