BBQ is not simply meat thrown on a grill with a fire beneath it. It’s so much more than that, and the family at The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, Texas know that. Less than 20 miles outside of Austin is one of this country’s best BBQ joints that has been cooking up all types of delicious meats since 1969. Take a step into their home and see what the brilliant cooks have on the chopping block every day of the week.
Everything’s bigger in Texas…right? I would certainly say so. Around the fire pit you can find huge cuts of meat such as pork, beef, and bison ribs, turkey, sausage, chicken, brisket, pulled pork, and everything else that makes a BBQ a damn good time. Yes, of course that includes cornbread.
The incredible flavor that these meats all have is cooked right into it from the moment it gets into the pit or grill. The Salt Lick also makes their own BBQ sauces which were perfectly flavored and not too overbearing, allowing you to taste the meat and enjoy the savory flavors from the grill. My meal consisted of the “Thurman’s Choice”, which includes hearty portions of brisket, pork ribs, and sausage along with cornbread. They proclaim, “The plate that poppa ate!” Be advised that The Salt Lick is CASH ONLY and will not accept cards of any type. There is an ATM on-site, but beware that you will be charged a fee.
Make sure The Salt Lick is on your list of restaurants to hit when you get down to Austin. Do not miss out on this must eat meal.
