The wait was about 45min but we'll worth it. Everything, including the pickles, onion and bread, was perfect. Every piece of beef, pork or turkey was delicious

We took a friend to Salt Lick for a weekday lunch. While we got right in right I was blown away by the size of the parking lot and the size of the waiting area. That said, lunch was fantastic. My favorite were the ribs,...More

Went with a couple of old military friends on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Wait was about 45-minutes, but didn't seem as long. They have a winery/beer room where you can purchase drinks for your wait; or even BYOB. All 3 of us had the...More

Response from Linda R | Reviewed this property |
Yes, they allow dogs. But only on the outside patio and they must be on a leash. The outdoors is where they have the music so it's not all bad except in the Summer when it can reach 100° out there and 90° at night.
