Ate here with the wife yesterday and was underwhelmed. The BBQ was okay ...not bad.... but not great. The brisket was dry as was the sausage. The ribs wrre pretty good but not the best they didnt taste fresh. The coleslaw however was pretty good and so were the beans. I probably need to give another chance however my wife... More

The wife and I stopped in for BBQ sandwiches 10/12/2016. Meyer meats and sausage has always had a reputation for quality meats but not on this visit. Before we ordered our meals we wanted some of the dry sausage from the meat counter, we rang the bell several times and no one ever came out to serve us. We stayed... More

The Meyer family has been around for many decades and became famous for their sausage. Since then the Meyers have branched out into all sorts of endeavors including this smokehouse/restaurant in Elgin. Recently we wife and I dropped by for dinner and I ordered a sausage plate. She ordered a barbecue turkey plate. The sausage has a classic taste which... More

Tender bbq and great sides. Very good brisket. Sorry but the potato salad, Mac and cheese, and coleslaw at Meyer's was very good and better then the guys down the street. Good sausage. Clean well managed restaurant and not a tourist trap. Will return. There bbq sauce is good especially their honey bbs sauce. 3 meat plate leaves you full.

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...
