    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.

    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.
