Southside Market & Barbeque

The Oldest BBQ Joint in Texas. Since 1882
Southside Market & Barbeque
This is no ordinary sausage. A century plus of smoked know how is packed into every bite of Elgin's famous hot links. 135 years of satisfied Texans can't be wrong!

“Butcher today, deliver tomorrow.” That was Southside Market’s mantra in 1882 when the first cuts of meat were sold from founder William Moon’s wagon 135 years ago. Without refrigeration, the unsold fresh cuts of meat were preserved by smoking and, in true German tradition, spiced to make sausages. It wasn’t long before these “hot guts” became famous, with people all over coming to Elgin to sample them. The decades rolled by and while Southside Market’s owners changed, their dedication to crafting the best sausages in Texas did not, which is why nearly a century and a half since that first cut of meat was sold, Elgin is known as the Sausage Capital of Texas.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Southside Market has been featured on the Travel Channel and in USA Today, Texas Monthly, Maxim & was named one of the "8 Best BBQ Spots in Texas" by Time. They've also been featured in BBQ books including "America's Best BBQ" & "The Prophets of Smoked Meat" produced by Texas Monthly.
