describe my experience ,ok sure. like a lot of other people going out for valentines dinner I knew we were going to be waiting for a table. we were told there would be a 45 min to an hour wait time. that was okay we were in know hurry. but after an hour and fifteen min. we began to see other couples that showed up after we did getting in before us. when questioned we were told that they all had reservations and that two more people were ahead of us. some of the couples that were getting tables ahead of us had standing outside with us for at least a half an hour. all these people had reservations and still had to wait a half an hour or more to get a table? that means only one of options, either it is poor scheduling or we were being lied to. whichever it was this is the worst customer experience ive had in a long time. we turned in the announcement card and wound up dinning at texas land and cattle.

Enjoyed the food and service until I returned home to gut wrenching cramps, diarrhea and hives, my typical MSG poisoning reaction. It has put me in the emergency room before. Mono Sodium Glutamate sensitive people are in abundance and they should remove all sources. I will not be returning until they do. It could be in the seasoning rubs, the sausage, or the sauce, or all of the above. It is a cheap cop out for intense flavor, instead of good seasoning. Be ware if you are sensitive and don't eat there.

So the food is not my favorite. It's pretty darn good, but I've had better. This place is more about the atmosphere. It's huge and I'm pretty sure always busy. It's BYOB which is cool too. They typically have live music on the weekends which is usually family friendly and pretty good. I'd definitely recommend this place to friends and family and hope they invite me along with them when they go!

One of the Best BBQs I have had. I traveled the east coast for 6 months and tried to find the best BBQ(I traveled for work not for the BBQ). Salt lick is up there. The ribs were amazing and the Family Style destroyed me...in a good way. If you're in the area...check it out!

This is a place that I think gets better every time I go! No matter if it's friends or family that come into town, this is the place we go. It's not just the food that is awesome, but the atmosphere as well. There is typically at least an hour wait, but with lots of picnic tables, the winery selling wine and beer next door, and the live band on weekends, no one seems to mind. The food itself is definitely worth the wait! We always order the family style (all you can eat) meal so every one can try everything. The best part is they will let you take what you don't finish home!

Best BBQ that I dont have to wait in an hour line for. Also, the facility and vibe is fantastic. Great wine too!

Local BBQ place. It is famous nationwide. They had to build a helicopter pad on top of the restaurant so that President Bush could just fly in for dinner at his convenience. It is pretty delicious and they have live music on weekends. It is not the BEST BBQ in Austin…but it definitely is a cool experience. It is right by a winery and it is also BYOB, so you can take your own beer and sit outside…enjoy some good BBQ and music. It is a neat place! I recommend it to anyone. Make sure you go to the original one though. I feel as if the food tastes better.

Salt Lick is one of those places that out of towners and locals alike love to go to, and I don't blame them necessarily. While just outside of Austin, it's a nice little in-the-country-kind-of getaway and more than just eating a meal, but an activity in itself. Is it the best barbecue in Austin? No way, that would be Franklin, but who wants to wait in line for several hours? Me. But not most people. Is it still pretty good though? Absolutely. And while you might still have to wait a bit for a table, it's BYOB, they have a huge outside area with lots of seating, bocce ball, live music some times, and now a place where beer and wine can be purchased. So the time actually passes rather quickly. And once you are seated inside, the food comes out super fast, so not to worry, hungry bear. A few things: - It's cash only, don't forget. - On Sundays they have a few special menu items like an enormous prime rib, green bean casserole, another potato option, chicken, etc. I highly recommend going then to try something new! - It's not too terribly far from wineries in dripping springs or hamilton pool and makes for an excellent dinner stop on the way back to Austin from a fun-filled day trip. - No dogs allowed inside, so while it might seem like a good idea to bring one along to hang out while you wait, it will have to find something else to do when it's your turn to eat. - The sign that says "For your convenience beer and wine is available next door at salt lick cellars" is grammatically incorrect. I told them once and sadly they didn't care.
