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.

Brisket, ribs and Turkey were great. The sauce is what was distinctive. Like none I've ever had. Smoky and a little spicy. Atmosphere was fun and family style. Wait staff was a bit inattentive but overall a nice experience.

Salt Lick BBQ was a great place to sit outside with a group of friends and have dinner! They had a great guitar player playing and singing! The atmosphere is nearly perfect! Can’t wait to visit again!
