Lavaca County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 19,263. Its county seat is Hallettsville. The county is named for the Lavaca River which curves its way South East through Moulton and Hallettsville before reaching the coast at Matagorda Bay.

Lavaca County residents are notable for referring to generic soft drinks as "soda water", rather than the generic "coke" as residents of most parts of Texas commonly refer.
