"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.

    Emily S., Yelp Review
    Seguin, TX

  • "Best BBQ in Texas!!! Stopped on the way from Austin to Houston and planning to take 290 every time now so we can stop here. We had the brisket, sausage plate and lamb ribs. Brisket was no lie the best I have ever had! Lamb ribs also incredible. So much parking, so much seating. We came at 2:00 on a Saturday and there was no line. But seriously this is the best bbq joint you'll ever go to."

    Liz T., Yelp Review

  • "We loved it! The slammer is amazing! Sausage, cheese, jalapeño wrapped in bacon. Keto friendly for sure! The mac and cheese is so good! You must get the cobbler & ice cream! Prices are good and love the Texas atmosphere!"

    Marla H., Yelp Review
    Round Rock, TX

  • "Their chopped beef baked potato was massive and loaded with all sorts of delicious fixings! The mac and cheese was creamy and delicious, and the sweet tea was on point. A great place for barbecue in Bastrop!"

    Amanda T., Yelp Review
    Ingleside, TX

  • "One of my favorite BBQ places to stop when on 290 or 71! The BBQ here is great and the buildings are nice, but the real gem here is the spices that they sell. They're all really awesome and unique. The all around BBQ seasoning is great for all meats. The smoked steak and garlic pepper are also really good AND they're cheap. The fresh or fully cooked sausages are a great addition to your fridge as well."

    Blake A., Yelp Review
    Houston, TX

  • "I have been coming out here from time to time over twenty years and I have never been disappointed. The portions are generous and the food is delicious. If you have never been I highly recommend you stop in. It’s a Texas BBQ staple."

  • "No one goes away hungry. This place has so much history and allows everyone to get exactly what they want. Truly a meat-lover's paradise and they are also known for home-made, prize-winning sausage. I got the very last pork chop just before they closed and it was still tender and delish!"
