Tried the pulled pork sandwich and the brisket sandwich. Pulled pork was delicious, but the brisket was the best brisket I've ever had! Seriously amazing! Sides were a nice kicker also. Great little bbq spot, the meat smoker was legit!

My family and I came here for a Western treat and everyone was overjoyed. We had the gumbo, brisket, ribs, and pulled pork.... everything was fantastic. Very authentic. The music was great, the staff was very welcoming, the owner was lovely to chat with!

Had buffalo wings and deep dish pizza at Chicago, a pulled pork sandwich and ribs at Salt Lick. Loved both visits - great food and overall ambiance. Who would have known that we found our best American food experience in Asia in the small town...More

Friendly and helpful staff. I had the gumbo and loved it, not too spicy. My wife had pulled pork in a bun which she described as "delicious". I had a weird melon flavoured beer - won't do that again, but that was my own fault....More

Pretty much a must-go for those who like western food. The BBQ brisket sandwich was delicious, as were the hush puppies and chili fries!

Ok, so as a bit of a BBQ junkie and often frequenter of the original Salt Lick in Austin I went here with a certain amount of skepticism and cynicism. Wow, first things first, they do legit BBQ and their sides are wonderful as well....More
