A day in the life at Southside Market & BBQ. The secret to our success and longevity? Genuine folks making authentic Central Texas BBQ, since 1882.
A small sampling of our front line crew in Elgin. Here at our original location, we proudly employ many team members who've been with us for 5, 10 and even 15+ years!
Just a few of our Bastrop All-Stars! We opened this newest restaurant in November 2014. We're proud to say that new growth for the company means new opportunities for our team members.
Established in 1882, Southside Market & Barbeque is the oldest joint in the state! Serving authentic Texas barbeque for over 130 years in Elgin, TX and now at their newest restaurant in Bastrop, TX. Both locations offer a family style dining experience and full service meat market. Southside's retail branch distributes their products to grocery retailers throughout the state while their meat processing plant produces all of their sausage and fully smoked BBQ items as well as co-packing for select companies. Southside also sells and ships their meats nation-wide via their online store. While much has changed since 1882, Southside stands by it's "salt of the earth" values and basic, authentic recipe - quality meat, simple dry rub, real Texas post oak wood, and time. – less
