Southside Market & Barbeque

Originating in downtown Elgin, TX in 1882, Southside Market & Barbeque is the oldest BBQ joint in Texas, now owned and operated by third-generation Pitmaster Bryan Bracewell and his wife Rachel. Over the past 137 years, this historic restaurant has grown from a one-man butcher shop to its current status as a must-visit destination for those seeking authentic sausage and meats, smoked low and slow over real Texas post oak wood in the traditional Central Texas style. Their Original Beef Sausage has long been considered their signature item – made fresh, in-house daily for a level of quality, taste and enjoyment you can’t find anywhere else. No shortcuts, no gimmicks. Just top quality meats, a simple dry rub, real wood, and time.
