Great Family restaurant that has been in Elgin forever. Great for dine in or take out... they even have a drive thru. Have never tasted anything from Meyer's that wasn't Amazing!

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.

Stopped in for BBQ Take-out on the way home from La Grange to Austin. There was a very friendly greeter handing out samples and promoting store packaged sausage. The store/restaurant was very clean. An employer came from behind the counter to clean up after a customer. The cashier station was well staffed and friendly. Sausage was excellent as expected. Cole... More

DRGNO, Lone Star and Meyer's Sausage! I don't think you can get any more Texan than that. I will pass the compliments on to Juanita.

They have some of the best sausage you will ever wrap your lips around. I can't say that the brisket was my favortie, but it was good. The atmosphere is good and there is plenty of room for any large party.

Menu had a great variety. Plenty of options. I chose the pork sausage and my wife chose the brisket. The portions were good size. The sides we chose were potatoes salad, Cole slaw, and cream corn. The cream corn was OK. The potatoe salad had too much mayonnaise and not much flavor. The pork sausage was tender but it was... More

Gary, Thanks so much for stopping by. I apologize for disappointing you when you stopped in. It definitely sounds like we were not on our game that day. While the pork garlic sausage is very mild, there is no excuse for the brisket to be that dry, as well as dirty bean pots or sticky handles in the restroom. One... More
