“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I've live in Taiwan for almost ten years, and when I want to eat food a bit more like back home, this is the place. Always leave stuffed!

“I love ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Salk lick is an unique restaurant in Hualien.I have been there many times.The ribs are AWESOME! The T- bones are HUGE! I like to sit at the patio because the atmosphere there seemed like you go back to the American old west.

“~~Great FOOD at the LICK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

a group of us...seven...with two kids in tow all went to the SALT LICK for some grub and brews

( well no brews for the kids!)..

Knew it was genuine BBQ by the smell when we walked by the "Train" outside...

which is actually the oven!

The pit was created and designed by Jason, one of the owners...

This is a quality BBQ place. From the ribs, to the pulled pork to the awesome desserts...,

This place has amazing food. Whatever they do, they seem to do it well. Also along with the food, the service is top notch.

We will return with more people next time!

“A Salt licker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Salt lick is probably the most original American restaurant in Hualien. First, you're amazed with its cowboy style, next beautiful waitresses ask you for your order and then, you get spoiled by their mouth-watering meals. My favorite is Pulled pork sandwich which I am addicted to and just have to have it every week. For those of us who have spent over ten years in Taiwan, Salt lick's meals bring back the tasty memories of our homes.
