Reflect & Celebrate Memorial Day with Southside Market & BBQ

Memorial Day holds a significance far beyond merely a day off work. It's a special occasion to pay our respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. As we come together with friends and family, it's crucial to pause and contemplate the weight of this day, paying tribute to the brave men and women who selflessly gave their lives in service to our country.

Savor the True Spirit of Texas BBQ with Southside Market

Southside Market & BBQ, known for generations as a legendary stop in Elgin, Texas (we're still here!), has become the sausage capital of Texas for a reason. We offer the true taste of Texas BBQ – slow-smoked meats that whisper of tradition and melt in your mouth with every bite.

Imagine our signature Central Texas Brisket, seasoned to perfection and cooked low and slow over post oak wood. 

We also offer a bounty of other options, including tender ribs practically falling off the bone, and our wide selection of smoked meats like our Original Beef Smoked Sausage or our Jalapeño Cheddar Sausage. Can't decide? Try our famous Sausage Sampler– a Texas-sized sampler of our most popular smoked sausage varieties! 

Every morsel is a testament to our dedication to using the freshest ingredients and time-honored techniques. We are proud to be considered the oldest BBQ joint in Texas, upholding the traditions of authentic central Texas BBQ with every smoker puff.

  • Volunteer your time at a veteran's organization: Give back to those who served by helping with projects, running errands, or simply offering companionship.

  • Visit a veteran's cemetery: Take a moment of quiet reflection and place a flag on a headstone.

  • Share stories of veterans with your family: Talk about the sacrifices made and the freedoms secured.
