Stayed in Austin for a conference last week and decided to see what all the fuss was about. Drove to Roundrock and got a little lost but made it to the restaurant 5 minutes after 9. We were to told by a very rude host that the place was closed while we salivated over the bbq cooking over the open pit as we walked in the front door. I'll never visit this place again. He would not even allow a take out order!! JERK.

Beans, potato salad, and coleslaw are not your traditional recipes so if you are a purist, you may be upset with the sides. Bread is from Stroehmann's and is not homemade. There are two BBQ sauces to try - regular and spicy. Definitely try these on your bread as well as your BBQ. If you love meat, go for the all you can eat plate. It truly is all you can eat including giving you leftovers to take home. If you want beef ribs, which you do, this is the best way to get them, otherwise you have to do an all beef rib plate. Overall, excellent BBQ that is worth the hype.

This was terrific barbecue, not to be missed on an Austin trip. The place was very busy - they kept it moving, but you should plan accordingly if you're tight on time (go early!). Ribs were simply awesome - just the right amount of smoke, meat falling off the bone, but still with a nice chew, and an excellent portion. Sides were very tasty.

We had our rehearsal dinner at this location, and while the adults thoroughly enjoyed the all-you-can-eat BBQ brought to the tables, they could have had some options for the kids. But the food was great as is normal for Salt Lick! I love their potato salad!

After visiting the one in Driftwood, my friend took me to this place fir the first time. I really like this place 'cos it's closer to my friend's place in North Austin. Same great food and this time no need for BYO. They also serve nice magharitas while waiting for table. Fun place to eat. Really recommend this place.
