Just good Texas BBQ. The atmosphere is fitting of a BBQ institution. They have developed a great system to handle crowds so the wait was not very long. The ribs and brisket are great. We ordered a bunch of different plates and everyone shared. The black berry cobbler for dessert is worth a try.

We had our family reunion dinner here. All 66 of us! We had a whole room to ourselves. The delicious barbecue dinner was served family style. Platters of food just kept coming. We had three different types of meat that was barbecued to perfection. Their barbecue sauce is mustard based and its delish! It was a drive to get there... More

Went while on vacation with my family. We didn't have to wait too long...was a Tuesday night. The meat was decent. Some pieces of brisket were delicious and some were not that great. The pecan pie was not good at all. The service was pretty good.

Many people out of state before our arrival in Texas recommended we try this place, yet startlingly many locals suggested other places like Rudy's. We figured we had enough time on our trip to try them both, and we love BBQ! When we arrived at the Salt Lick ranch in Driftwood we were greeted by a sleepy eyed teenager who... More

This is the 2nd time we have been here and won't be the last either. On the weekends they get extremely busy but we don't mind the wait. You can bring coolers and your own alcohol as well. The drive out there is nice and my favorite is the ribs and brisket with their homemade sauce. Try the fresh lemonade... More

First night in Texas and this was our first stop. It will be hard to beat. We did the family style all you can eat. The meat, and all the sides were wonderful. You have to bring your own cooler of beer. And remember to bring Cash Only.You can't miss this place.

We ate here on Sunday, July 27th. The food was amazing! My husband and I ordered a variety so we had a little of everything to try. Brisket, ribs, sausage and turkey was great. The turkey was truly the best turkey i have ever had in my life. We even ordered a half pound to go. I have never even... More

Wow! What a beautiful drive to the middle of nowhere for fab BBQ! I'm new to Texas and this was my first experience with Texas BBQ and it didn't disappoint. I had the ribs, brisket and sausage plate. The meat was incredible! So juicy and tender! I wasn't a fan of the sides. They weren't what I was used to,... More

Had a fab unlimited bbq meal here, service great although the size of the place can be quite overwhelming really. Would return with friends but would not go out of my way to visit as it was not outstanding. An experience to try once for sure.
