Novosad's BBQ & Sausage Market is a family business that was established in Hallettsville, Texas in 1959 by J.J. Novosad. J.J.'s father traveled to Texas from Czechoslavakia with his famous sausage recipes and started selling BBQ. J.J. took over the business and sold several restaurants around Texas, including what is today the Mikeska's chain, before opening Novosad's in Hallettsville.
*Novosad means new orchard in Czech, and it is the
name of a historical Czechoslavakian village. It is located in the
Trebišov District of modern day Slovakia.
