Testimonials

A word from our happy
(and full) customers.

"Stopped at Southside BBQ while passing through Elgin, easily the best meal on my Texas Trip! Elgin is famous for their Smoked "Hot" Sausage - it lived up to expectations. Several combos available, which allowed me to try Brisket as well. Must-stop if you make the drive from Houston - Austin!"

"Delicious! I had the brisket loaded baked potato which is a meal in itself. Brisket was perfectly cooked and the staff were very patient and friendly for us being first time visitors."

“Southside Market and Barbecue is a must stop when traveling through Bastrop. The meats are moist and flavorful. Every side dish is great. The plates have generous servings. We have found the staff to be friendly and attentive. Casual dining at its best.”

  • "I recently ordered a sausage sampler and some of the sausage wrapped jalapenos to be shipped to my friend in Ohio for his annual picnic. Most folks in Ohio don't like spicy foods, but that sausage and those jalapenos were the hit of the BBQ. Thanks for the quality products."

  • "I visit family in Elgin at least once a year always stop buy at least twice to bring me back home memories excellent tasting original sausage and kids love the brisket, love the crackers too great customer service I'll be back."

  • There’s a reason why Southside Market sells millions of pounds of these Homemade Elgin Sausages per year. It’s amazing – very meaty, juicy and well seasoned! And I love the spicy kick.

    Perfectly seasoned, very tender and fatty, the lamb ribs are a must eat here, especially since lamb ribs are not easily found in other BBQ joints to begin with.
