Not that impressed with salt lick anymore after all the up in comers in and around austin area. Ribs below average, brisket lacks flavor/on the drier side, sausage merely adequate. Sides stand out! Potato salad is outstanding(german style). Cole slaw good and vinegar-y. Beans good, but the sauce....incredible sauce! You can order spicy if u like also...

A visit here isn’t just about barbecue. It’s about atmosphere, catching up with friends, and…

The Salt Lick is renowned throughout Texas, and holds a special place in the heart of BBQ fanatics. Many recent reviews have decried the demise of this mecca of Texas BBQ claiming that it’s all about atmosphere, and not enough about what’s in the pits. The setting alone may be worth the drive if you come with a group of friends. The large group of picnic tables and BYOB policy make for a tailgate party…
