Though barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip 'n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of slow-cooked barbecue and sausage at Southside Market & Barbeque in Elgin.
Southside Market & Barbeque has been slow-cooking sausages and meats for more than 125 years, making it one of the oldest barbecue joints in Texas. The meat-centric menu showcases tender cuts of meat slow-cooked over Texas post-oak wood pits. Plates, such as the famous Elgin sausage plate ($6.99), come served with a side of potato salad or cole slaw, as well as beans, pickles, onions, and a nod of approval from passing mayors. Other edibles include dry-rubbed brisket and sausage ($7.99), pork steak ($7.69), or a half rack of baby-back ribs with a choice of Elgin sausage or brisket ($9.99). A single scoop of Blue Bell's hand-dipped ice cream ($2; $3.50 with a waffle cone) cools down overstimulated tongues with frigid creaminess and relaxing yoga stretches.
