This is our signature item, made fresh in-house daily for a level of quality, taste, and enjoyment you can’t find anywhere else. Since 1882.

Gluten Free. No MSG.
Orders filled using 2 lb. packages.

    Best Sausage in Texas

    Herb KRANTZ:

    I grew up on this sausage. I’ve lived throughout in different parts of the United States and nowhere but in the Elgin Texas could you get this wonderful sausage. Now I’m back living in Houston and every time we get through Elgin or through Bastrop now we buy sausage and bring home with us. Best sausage and Texas.

    Absolutely !! The best sausage

    Brian McMahan (verified owner):

    This sausage is the best I have eaten. I cooked a link in the oven the first night after I received it because it was raining and I could not put it on the pit. I cannot wait to put a link on the pit because if it is that good right from the oven then it is going to be hard to beat! .. and the grease is even tasty and smells delicious so I keep a little to put into some pinto beans.

    They Set the Bar

    Randy Blackstone:

    This is THE hill country sausage. Southside sets the bar for what others strive to compete with. It’s the best the Texas Hill country has to offer.

    Dip in hot pepper sauce

    Roderick Holcombe:

    I love to wrap the hot gut in a slice of bread and pour hot pepper sauce on the butcher paper and then dip the wrap around into it

    The Best Sausage in the World

    Paul Stevenson:

    Or at least my world. I have been eating this sausage that I know of and remember since I was old enough to walk. That was about 1957 or so. I can think about it and start drooling like Pavlov’s dogs. I love this stuff and it never disappoints. I wished that I lived close enough to go in and buy it at the counter. But now I have an alternative way. Good for you Southside Meat Market.

    Best memories and even better sausage

    Gregg Dorst:

    I was little when my dad discovered Elgin smokehouse sausage. Since then it has been family tradition to go back each and every year as our family grows.

    I’ve lived all over the world and nothing compares or reminds me of home like Elgin Sausage. It’s a family trademark. I can’t wait to pass the memories of stopping here to get our Elgin sausage as we continue our roadtrip.
