Seems like you are driving to nowhere when suddenly you see a clearing with a lot full of cars. Expect a 1.5 to 2 hour wait but it's worth it. While you wait, they offer wine tastings, beer, popcorn, lemonade, and live music (only the music being free). Once you get seated, get ready for some of the best bbq... More

The Salt Lick was recommended by a friend at UT - it is a sprawling place, you put your name in and get a buzzer. They have a wine room and beer that you go purchase while you wait. We tasted Texas wines and found a Rhone style we liked. Only waited about 30 minutes for a table, very nice... More

This was my first visit to a Salt Lick BBQ. I had read an article about it so I had to try it out. Well, it exceeded expectations. What a cool, homey setting and atmosphere. The food is absolutely fantastic! It was well worth the drive up from San Antonio. I definitely pop in to Salt Lick every chance I... More

This is about a 40 minute drive from downtown Austin, Texas, but well worth. Make sure to designate a driver ahead of time. Essentially, you bring your own liquor and drink while your table gets ready. The food itself was amazing. The meat was fall of the bone and tasty. The diversity of people was really great -- families, singles,... More

Liked the atmosphere and the food was good. There is BBQ in the area that I like better. Disliked having to walk to another area to buy wine and beer from the winery.

I would have made this one of the first stops on our list, the bbq was nothing short of amazing. We stopped for lunch ordered the brisket and the ribs, they were both simply incredible. We skipped the sides and went straight for the peach pie with ice cream...heavenly would be how I would describe that. I would not recommend... More

This place is out of the way but well worth it. The atmosphere is great and the food is even better! They have a winery to boot! The brisket is tender enough to cut with a fork. The ribs were falling off the bone. The sausage had just the right amount of spice and the turkey was so juicy!

We loved this place! It really is a destination in itself! We went as a family and the younger members did family style! We knew that as "seniors" we would not be worth the $21.00 charge and went with the senior plates, which were HUGE! Very tasty and nice to be able to BYOB or buy a wine or beer... More

Stumbled upon this place on our cross America trip, kids wanted horseback riding, and near the ranch with horses was this restaurant. We are so glad we stopped there. It was a Thursday late afternoon. No wait. No music. Four people. $100 plus booze from the cellar next door $12 for six pack. Great experience , good food. Maybe the... More
