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.

Large place with large wooden bench seating where you may be seated with people you don't know if they are crowded. BBQ was okay. Food portions are large. Bill was 100.00 for three adult dinners with no alcohol, which seems a bit pricey for food...More

Salt Lick has a reputation of being one of the best bbq places in town. My experience is that the food is over rated and over priced. I really expected better.

The BBQ was great, we didn’t order the family style because we had an early dinner and had to get the airport. The brisket and ribs were moist and delicious. The sides were also very good. The only disappointment was the pecan pie. It looked...More

Hands down some of the best smoked meat I've had. Tender, juicy smoke flavor is authentic. No traditional sauce is available but I didn't need much and I'm a sauce person. The 2 sauces were like a thick dressing type. They ask you have your...More
