### Southside Market & BBQ (Elgin, Tx)

Part 2 of 5

This is the 2nd installment of my 5 part "Texas BBQ Road Trip 2010". Texas Monthly Magazine listed the top 50 BBQ Joints in Texas and I had the honor/dishonor of attending 5 of the 50 establishments during Memorial Weekend.

This weekend I attended what Elgin, Tx (the sausage capitol) claims as the oldest BBQ Joint in Texas. Any BBQ Joint that claims an establishment of 1882 is worth a try...or so I thought. For this place to get voted in Texas Monthly's Top 50 BBQ places is a disappointment and an embarrassment.

I will now discuss the taste of the food in great detail.

Blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah, blah blah; blah. Blah (blah blah blah) blah blah blah blah. BLAH! Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah? Blah.

Needless to say it tasted very blah. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't gross or disgusting, there was just not enough happening in the flavor department nor was there a consistent texture with any of the meats. I'm going to step out of a limb and say that I can find better BBQ in Louisiana than what I found at Southside Market & BBQ.

Now, there was a nice little highlight. They had a Bluebell Ice Creme server bar near the entrance. So if you were like me and decided that the calories of mediocre BBQ weren't worth it, you can give your food to the dogs and fill up on Bluebell Homemade Ice Creme.

Due to a 5 out of 5 star rating for their ice creme...

Southside Market & BBQ will be receiving a 3 out of 5 stars.
