I know, we all have different opinions when it comes to BBQ. I must say this was a great choice for us. Everyone found something on the menu. The staff was great, very attentive and patient as navigated through the menu.

I gave Salt Lick BBQ a 4 star because of the excellent service and fun environment. The quality of food was good but is much different than Kansas BBQ. Sauces are mustard based, sides are very different than what we are accustomed to. This is...More
