    This is the BBQ to go to, a must every time we are are in town. BYOB with a great patio area and live music.

    Not worth the drive IMO. The smoked brisket was good, but the sauce wan't that great and I'm not sure it was worth the 1 hour detour out of Austin. I would rather stay in Austin, for almost as good.

    Family style only way to go, and for $25/ person, great for the amount of food.

    Good ribs brisket better at Krews. They grow wine grapes but can't make wine so cross the street to Fall Creek for wine from their grapes

    Get the brisket and pork ribs combo. Their potato salad is to die for. Hands down best BBQ I've ever had. Head next door for beer or wine for your meal.

    It's all good but if you have one thing brisket.

    A cozy, adorable BBQ restaurant on a farm/winery, complete with wooden benches, stone walls, and twinkling lights in their garden. The wooden oven is a sight, and the pork ribs are perfect.

    Feel like Salt Lick is losing its fastball. Brisket was tough and tepid. Sausages on the fatty side. Might be getting a bit too big.

    Ben Baron · April 16, 2015
  • Yajaira R.

    The brisket is bomb! their potato salad isn't like others, or what we'd normally think but it's good nonetheless. their BBQ sauce is unique & their pickles are so good.

    Yajaira Rodriguez · April 14, 2015

    When I first came here, tears of joy streamed down my cheeks just shortly before slipping into a meat coma.

    the rib meat falls off the bone. absolutely delicious. opt for ordering your meats separately.

    Jennifer Shin · February 19, 2015
  • Avery E.

    Not nearly as good as Franklin and a trek but it's the real Texas experience. BYOB, music, on a ranch. Cash only. Meat sweats.

    Avery Epstein · February 18, 2015
  • Abner A.

    BYOB. Cash only at the restaurant side, but the shop next door has beer and wine for sale which you can use credit cards for. Buy a 6 pack of lone star and get the moist brisket!

    Worth the wait. Go buy a bucket of beer and wait in the seating area until your table is ready.
