I tried Salt Lick when I was here last time and have been dreaming about it ever since! My sister in law and I split a plate of burnt ends brisket, potato salad, beans and coleslaw. The rest of the family had different plates including...More

If you can make it to Round Rock or Drift Wood Texas then you must visit the Salt Lick. They consistently smoke up some of the best BBQ in the state and for that matter in the entire world, bar none.
