    Nice to have a solid BBQ spot in the east side. Excellent ribs. Brisket good but not the best. Their sauce is sweet but good. The side options are fairly limited but who needs sides? Meat!!

    Far from the best BBQ in Austin but not bad. Can't go wrong with the brisket, ribs, sweet potato fries and pecan pie (or cobblers). Family friendly, if your kids like BBQ of course!

    Brisket. They give you a choice of how you want your meat: dry, medium or burnt ends. Go with the burnt ends! Ask for Adam with a beard and glasses he's amazing!!!

    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 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!

    Tremendous sausage! The peach tones of the beans was a delightful surprise. Highly recommended.

    The pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw is really good!!

    Stephanie Walls · January 11
  • Mike B.

    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.

    Wonderful bar-b-que!!!

    Did somebody say brisket? Quit messing around and go for the burnt ends. Spicy sauce!

    One of the best bbq places in the area. Take the whole family and have a great time! Live music also!

    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

    Let's see what this tastes like.

    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.

    Katie · August 31, 2014
  • Zach K.

    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.

    The ribs are delicious. Brisket is very tasty as well. I am not a huge fan of their sauce but as an experience it is hard to beat.

    The atmosphere

    Yes ask for Steph!!!!!!

    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.

    Daniel Reichert · July 17, 2014
  • Kate M.

    Not as good as the original location but getting better as the pit here ages.

    Kate Morris · July 6, 2014
  • Kendra W.

    Beef ribs are on point!

    Kendra W. · June 12, 2014
  • Julia S.

    You'll have to go to the other location for the triple chop sandwich.

    Julia Stokes · May 23, 2014
  • Tommy D.

    Best rib, sausage, and prime rib

    Tommy Diep · May 18, 2014

    Everything was good. The beans were just ok though.

    Food is so yummy! AC blasting a bit too much but other than a great time

    Average at best. Go to Rudys instead

    Best BBQ I have ever had.

  • Britnee H.

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

    Prime ribs so good

    Average brisket. Should have gone to Rudys.

    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

    Excellent BBQ

    This BBQ spot has been featured on the Food Network so it has to be good!

  • Kitjer

    Pulled pork is the surprise menu item.

    Kitjer · November 15, 2013
  • Rick M.

    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?

    Rick M. · October 20, 2013
  • Jim S.

    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!

    Jim Shaffer · September 26, 2013
  • Stephanie V.

    Did not care for the sides and kids running in and out. Flies became annoying. Meat was good but pricey.

  • Salvatore T.

    Buenazo! BBQ

    Salvatore Tovar · June 30, 2013
  • Cyndi B.

    You can't go wrong. Try it all!
