We stopped here during the state baseball tournament. The bbq was ok but the potato salad was dry and the beans were nothing special. A little over priced. Great atmosphere though.

Outstanding food. Tender brisket, tasty ribs and sausage. The potato salad and coleslaw was so good. We had great service for our part of 8. Hector did an outstanding job.

It honestly doesn't matter what you eat here. Everything is hot and fresh. The meat is juicy, tender, and delicious. The service was great. We can't wait to go back.

The Salt Lick was recommended to us several times, but only because we didn't find anyone who had tried Franklin's. Our decision was made when we realized Franklin's was closed on Mondays. The salt lick is about 20 miles outside of Austin. The drive was...More
