    Pro tip- don't sleep on the turkey. It's better than expected and incredibly moist. The brisket is amazing, but the beef ribs are where it's at. BYOB but you can buy local wines and beers on grounds.

    As seen on Man v Food, this is the original Salt Lick, and the best BBQ around. If you're anywhere in Texas, make the trip to Driftwood for Salt Lick's mouthwatering BBQ.

    Byob, or get some from the cellar next door. Try the 3-meat option to get a taste of everything. And, save room for the 1/2 peach, 1/2 blackberry cobbler with ice cream. Cash only!

    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.

    I flew in thousands of kilometers from the Philippines to try this and yes it was worth the trip! Make sure you order the brisket with the burnt tips and the sausage! Great smokey flavor!

    Sublime. I know it's Texas and its beef country, and the brisket was amazing, but it's the pork ribs, maybe the best I've ever had, that sent me clamoring for seconds.

    The all-you-can-eat family platter offers an earthly version of gustatory transcendence: dry-rubbed ribs, red-ringed brisket, and sausages, all smoked over live oak. Read more

    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.

    Go to check in, get a pager, expect min 2hr wait, go to wine room, buy BBQ white and Hill Country red, drink waiting for pager to page, return pager, order beef ribs and coleslaw, drink more wine

    Their ribs & sausages are to die for!!! One of the best places to eat BBQ in Austin. Plus, you can chill while you wait for your table at their wine cellar.

    Don't forget that it is 'cash only' and BYOB. Don't fret if you're already en route: there's a ATM on-site, and adult beverages (purchasable by card) next door at the tasting room.

    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.

    Take a cooler of beer/wine to make the wait fun! Go with a big group and order everyone an all-you-can-eat plate: ALWAYS WORTH IT. And a beautiful setting to boot! Best BBQ in Texas.

    So much beef, you'll grow horns. If there's three or more of you, order the Family Style selection. If you can manage that, it'll get refilled and if you can't manage any more, take it home in a box.

    A little out there but worth the drive. Don't be scared by the line as it moves very quickly. BYOB and music on the patio. Brisket and sausage are 👌🏻

    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!

    Huge compound with wine tastings, kids play area and beer gardens. Lots of outdoor seating while you wait for a table. BYOB but they sell wine and beers by the six-pack. Cash only but they have ATMs.

    The best BBQ around it is worth the drive to Driftwood, TX. It's always crowded specially weekends. The best tip is to watch out for the line cutters. If you wonder why it's taking so long to get in.

    BYOB and cash only!!! Play bocce ball in the back while you wait. Beef ribs are the best here... rancher's plate is enough food to split btwn 2 people and not make you hate yourselves after.
  • Ruben S.
    Ruben SavagliaNovember 30, 2015
    The best BBQ you ever want to try.. Try the all you can eat for $24.95 you can't go wrong worth every Rib,Brisket and Sausage...!!!
  • Seth D.
    Ambiance, food, people, and live music is def. worth the drive. If you don't like TX BBQ, then there's 49 other states you're more than welcome to relocate to.

    A meat party! A great place to go with a large group of people. Make sure you check out the BBQ pit. They'll even let you go up close and personal and take pictures.
  • Social N.

    Amazing BBQ! They DO charge for bread after your first piece, so keep that in mind. The waitress forgot to tell us this and we kept ordering bread! Also, they only take cash, but they have an ATM.

    You won't want to miss out on the best BBQ in Texas. Take a detour from the hustle and bustle of Austin to enjoy this laid back atmosphere. The ribs and finger licking sides ain't half bad either.
  • Kimberly B.

    Take the 20 min drive out to the Hill Country. Bring a cooler of beer or wine, and hang outside listening to the band play while you wait to eat. Kid friendly. Awesome experience!

    Order the family style BBQ. You won't regret it. And come hungry cause it's all you can eat. BYOB at this BBQ gem in Texas. 30 minute drive from Austin, but worth it!

    Turkey is surprisingly good; brisket and ribs are awesome (duh). Platters can be upgraded to the all you can eat at-cost as long as they don't include turkey (which isn't in the AYCE).
  • Kat L.
    Kat LMay 20, 2014
    Pork ribs and sausage were the best. Cobbler is overhyped unless you are in the mood - better dessert can be found elsewhere. Combo plate was a great way to taste everything, even turkey was good.
  • Diandra K.
    If you are visiting Austin and have a car, go to Salt Lick! Get the barbecue to go, very effortless, no frills, sit on the benches, listen to some live music, bring your own booze.

    Wow lives up to the hype for sure, their light rub and sauce covering means you really get to taste this meat (and this meat tastes great)

    Some of the best BBQ in the world literally. Adam on Man vs Food TV show said they had the BEST burnt ends he ever tasted anywhere in the country! Get the handmade lemonade they make in front on you i

    The Salt Lick is a good touristy experience, but the actual food lags behind the top tier of the city. Great sausage, good pork ribs, average brisket. BYOB.

    First and foremost have The Rancher, trying everything is worth it, don't think twice. Secondly, I'll bet you $100 you still eat the ice cream and bberry cobbler if order it #Unreal

    Get the moist brisket -- the extra calories are worth it. Their Blackberry Cobbler crust is sweeter than most, and it's awesome. Potato salad and coleslaw are almost as delicious as the meats.
  • Annie H.
    Annie HungAugust 26, 2016
    Rancher's Plate delivers it all! Hold on the all you can eat -- server'll let you upgrade if you're somehow still hungry after one plate. Pecan pie is amazing too

    I'm going to get castigated for saying this: but the BBQ here is far from the best in Austin. The atmosphere and the cobbler make it worth the trip, but I really didn't see what all the fuss is about.
  • Aline S.

    if debating which salt lick location to visit, this is definitely the one. the atmosphere is beautiful and undeniably texan. visit the wine cellar while you wait, and sample five texas wines for $5.

    Get the family style unlimited plate with everything you see here. It's an endless BBQ pit of deliciousness. Totally worth it - c'mon you drove all the way out here!

    Can't decide if the turkey, sausage or brisket was my favourite. Skip the ribs though, was a bit too tough for my liking. The jalapeños pack a kick, you have been warned.

  • Mac S.

    Beef Ribs are the best thing on the menu. Cole slaw and potato salad are refreshingly different than most places. Chicken is a close second. Skip the brisket unless you drench it in sauce.

    SXSW Recommendation from Sietsema-sauce is mustardy, and it's smeared on while the meat-a typical Texas selection-is in the open pits, which is another difference between it and, say, Kreuz Market.

    You pay for atmosphere, that's about it. Food is average at best. Not worth the drive for the money in my opinion. Been hyped up way too much.
