Great BBQ!

This is like the typical Austin's BBQ, the food is great, the best are the pork ribs and the brisket is not bad at all. We went with a group of friends and after the dinner we just sat outside and hang in the bar for a little bit. They have big fans that they're great for sitting outside in... read more

Now this is my fourth time eating here, and I rarely eat at the same place more than once. Salt Lick has all around great BBQ! The sides are just as good and the staff is amazing. I have tried everything so you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It can get really packed during peak times so... More

I eat here every time I get down to this area. All of the BBQ is really great and sides are too. The portions are good and the tea is good. Facilities are clean, clean rest rooms and good wait staff. If you are going to the Express ballgame save a spot to eat here ( just outside the parking... More

This place is the real deal BBQ! We went on a weeknight and there wasn't much of a wait. However, some folks say show up on the weekend and prepare to wait an hour or two. The brisket was so tender and moist! The ribs were falling off the bone. The sausages were yummilishis. You need to bring your cooler... More

Its much easier to visit this place for lunch. No wait. Expect a long wait on weekends. Family style is the way to go and we love the sauce. You get all the brisket, sausage, and pork ribs you can eat. Original and spicy salt lick bbq sauce. The cobbler and pecan pie is also worth a try. You can... More

Nice meal, but you have to wait sometimes for them to bring more items. Its somewhat expensive for most people. Most ladies dont eat enough to cover the cost.

The brisket was good and tender on my plat but my wife's was fatty and chewy. Overall pretty average. We really didn't care for the sides of coleslaw and potato salads. The waiter was very good and the beer was cold. They do have music outside on the patio that makes waiting tolerable. Not worth going out of our way,

The staff is always friendly and attentive. The food is always fantastic. Bottled barbeque sauces and dry rubs are available for purchase, I love giving them as gifts.
