    Overpriced BBQ. Almost $22 per pound for brisket! Now I know why only out-of-towners and tourist visit this place. Yikes

    Brisket can be inconsistent, but good to very good usually. Pork ribs are always good...beef ribs are unfortunately not. Spicy sauce is great..buy a bottle to take home.

    Ribs were excellent, turkey was good, brisket was okay. We liked the potato salad, too. Bbq sauce is mustard based but really good!

    Ribs, sausage and brisket are the only meats. Flavorless. Bbq sauce over vinegar. Slaw has no flavor. Potatoes cold, no flavor. Beans were warm but good.

    Thought this was an overrated experience, especially for having to drive out of the city... They still have okay food but the service is what shinned

    What's good here? Nada. Very meh. The sauce is good but without the sauce pretty unimpressive, but even with the sauce, mediocre at best. Pretty disappointed.

    Get the family style meal and eat until you have to stop. The potato salad is abysmal, but the beans, slaw and meats are quite good.

    I felt disappointed after all of the hype. Was it good? Sure. Overrated? Beyond. Good barbecue can be eaten without sauce, and the brisket was too dry without it.

    There is no good vegetarian option here. Their idea of a vegetarian meal is beans, potato salad and coleslaw

    The brisket and turkey was great, so was the tater salad. But I'm more of a Hard 8 kind of girl. Happy we tried Salt Lick, but won't miss it when we go back to Dallas

    Most of the meats are truly great, as they should be. BUT the sides that they force on you are below average. Please just allow substitutions on sides. Why even have anything else if you can't sub?

    I didn't like the sides. Got a chopped beef sandwitch, which was just some chopped beef thrown on two pieces of bread, no bun, with poor sides, way too expensive!
