The original Southside opened in 1882 in Elgin, making it the oldest barbecue spot in Texas, growing from a one-man butcher shop to an historic spot topping many food and travel lists. The new restaurant, under the same ownership, is located at 10515 N. Mopac, Suite B-225 within The Shops at Arbor Walk shopping.

Known for their Original Beef Sausage, Sausage Slammer, and sliced brisket, they’ll be open seven days a week (Sun. - Thurs., 10:30am-9pm; Fri. - Sat., 10:30am-10pm), offering their full menu of legendary meats slow-smoked over Texas post oak. And, of course, they’re still slingin’ house-made sides and cobblers (blackberry!) for dessert. The new location will also feature a dedicated meat market selling fresh and fully smoked meats as well as online ordering and a separate pick-up counter.

“Here at Southside, we are thankful for the opportunity to bring top quality Authentic Central Texas BBQ and great customer service with Texas friendly hospitality to Austin. We look forward to meeting our new neighbors starting next week,” said owner and third-generation pitmaster Bryan Bracewell in a press release.

Southside Market is also working on another location in Hutto which is set to open in 2020.
