    When was the last time you shopped at a locally owned grocery store? Well, move over Publix and Walmart because locals love the Elberta Grocery located in the German settled town of Elberta. It’s a small store that offers all the necessities and much more. It has gas, a lunch counter, groceries, and best of all a full-service butcher shop. People drive from all over the county to purchase their ten different types of sausage and steaks freshly cut by a third generation father and son butcher team. Elberta Grocery’s reputation for some of the best meats on the Gulf Coast is well deserved. Be sure to stop by the next time you’re traveling the coast!

    If you are around Elberta and looking for a place to eat lunch, stop by the Sub Shack on County Road 20. It is a small locally owned and operated restaurant that is only open for lunch during the week. They have a variety of simple sandwiches that are amazing.

    If you're heading down the back road of Hwy 98 in Elberta, there's a good chance you'll run into the Roadkill Cafe. Yes, you heard me say it correctly. But before you think your worst dining nightmare has come true, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. First, let's dispel the rumor. No, their first catch of the day has not been scraped off the road with a spatula. And, yes, their food is fresh, and USDA approved.

    What you will find is hole-in-the-wall dining at its finest along with exemplary Southern hospitality from down-home country cookin' people. Daily specials include fried chicken, pork chops, and fried catfish. You better get there early, however, because they only serve lunch and once the food is gone, it's gone! Mike, the owner, gives away one free meal a day to a lucky patron that pulls a red poker chip out of a bag filled with white poker chips. Roadkill Cafe is more than just a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. It is the epitome of comfort food.

    Für Das Gute Leben! These words welcome visitors to the small town of Elberta, and they describe it perfectly. Für das gute leben means "for the good life", and this weekend over 30,000 people are expected to be in town to enjoy some of the good life for themselves.

    The Sausage Festival is a bi-annual event sponsored by the Elberta Volunteer Fire Department. It began in 1978, and has grown steadily over the years. Over 7,000 pounds of German Sausage will be grilled to perfection, along with other favorites like German stuffed cabbage, goulash, and German potato salad. Live music goes on all day, but the hit of the festival is always the Polka band that takes center stage in the afternoon.

    As if the great food and music weren't enough, over 200 arts and crafts booths will be open, with something for everyone. And for the kids, there's a children's area, complete with carnival rides and face painting.

    So come on down, enjoy a German sausage and remember, you can live here too!

    Elberta attracted a number of German settlers who continued their love of sausages. You won't hear many German accents anymore but you can still enjoy their tradition and visit the annual Sausage Festival in April/May. Whilst in the area visit the local farmers market for an excellent choice of fresh local produce.
