Family and friend outing. We were sat immediately. The menu was straight forward. I got the plate that had a little bit of everything. I was impressed. The time we ordered to the time we were served was perfect. The different BBQ sauce they had was perfect for the different meats. BBQ sauce was definitely not needed but I like... More

This place is fabulous! Husband, two kids (8 & 12 y.o) and I ate dinner here, and everything we had was so delicious! Our server Adam was awesome: quick, attentive, and friendly! I had the chicken plate, and it was so tender it fell right off the bone. Husband and son had brisket and son also had pulled pork. Daughter... More

Great Texas BBQ. Sausage, brisket and ribs were terrific. Family style is the way to go. You are able to try everything. Their sauces are also terrific.

I have been to the original Salt Lick BBQ location several times and the Round Rock location is just as fantastic. The ribs were fantastic without BBQ sauce. And fantastic with BBQ sauce. Loved them. Such a cool place as well. And great service. Can't wait to go back for more.

We love coming to The Salt Lick ! The employees are warm and welcoming, the restaurant is comfy and inviting,and the food is great! I love the pulled pork sandwich with slaw on it. My son goes for the ribs every time, and my husband likes the Huntsman. The pecan pie is my favorite!

Wow!! Great Barbeque! I've eaten bbq in several states and Texas has the best. One of the top restaurants in the Austin area. The brisket is the best. Texas toast to dip in the sauce.

Whenever I'm in Austin I visit the Salt Lick. The atmosphere is rustic and you can bring your own booze if you like or they now have a place to buy it. Cash is King - but there is an ATM if you need cash to pay for food. We always seem to get the all you can eat because... More

It is Texas, so you have to try the barbecue. Meat by the pound! All the meat was good; brisket, ribs, even sausage, which I don't usually eat. We were at dinner with clients, and they taught me a new trick, put the beans on the potato salad. Yes it sounds strange but make them taste better. Good staff and... More
