Known by locals and old-timers as “Elgin Hot Sausage” or simply “Hot Guts”, this is the sausage that put Southside on the map. All beef, coarsely ground in a natural pork casing, and seasoned with cracked black pepper. It is what we are known for and is our best seller. On any given Saturday, we sell around 1400 lbs. in our Elgin restaurant alone! All of our sausage is made fresh by us, in-house daily for a level of quality, taste, and enjoyment you can’t find anywhere else. Since 1882.

Gluten Free. No MSG.
All online orders are filled using 13.3 oz. packages.

    From Texas all the way to California. It was in 1990
    When I first had them my mother in-law was from Texas and drove back there and introduced me to them.

    bought the sausage sampler , tried this one first , for my taste it was a bit mild. not as good as the garlic or the jalepeno cheddar that i’m eating right now. but if youre a newby like me, the sampler is the way to get started !

    I’ve been a devout fan of the southside market sausage for more than 30 yrs. and believe me time flies when you’re having fun right! So now being able to order online is really a blessing. It is the best sausage in the state.

    Best sausage ever , love the best sausage (not a Pork eater). Wish you could make beef & jalapeno sausage. The pork and jalapeno sausage looks great .every time we come to visit our friends in Austin, we stop by and take home a few pounds of meat and sausage.Will be coming through in Dec 2017 looking forward to trying something new.
