Best Barbaque in Austin! I bring all my family and friends here when they come to town. Make sure you ask for the burnt ends when you order the brisket. They are to die for. The potato salad is also great. Make sure you go early because you will wait forever to get in, but it is worth the wait.
some good BBQ. I dont understand why people are always touting this place. The BBQ is ok but its not spectacular. This place is defiantely more abotu the atmosphere than the food. Dont get me wrong, the food is good its just not as good as people rave about. I can make better BBQ in my own backyard. That being said I do like going out there to relax. Its located right in the hill country and its a relaxing drive.
Salt Lick BBQ. This is some of the best BBQ in Texas and maybe the Nation! If you have not been, go there today (don't forget to bring cash)! You'll love it, my recommendation is buy by the pound and don't waste your time doing family style, it'll cut your bill in half!
Best BBQ in Texas. The brisket and ribs were the best I've ever had and the sauce is unique and delicious. The BYOB family style atmosphere made it a memorable experience for me and my family. We were there on a weekend evening and there was a long wait, but there was live music as entertainment and the wait staff gave out some samples so we didn't really mind the wait. I will definitely go back when I'm in Austin next (might even plan special trips for it).
Best BBQ i've ever had; great atmosphere. Honestly, I've had a lot of good bbq and Salt Lick is by far the best. The sauce is amazing and every one of the meats is cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is very cool since it is BYOB and they cook all the meat on a huge open flame BBQ pit which you won't find really anywhere else. If you visit Austin and don't go to the Salt Lick, then you haven't really visited Austin. I can't wait to go back next time I'm in Austin.
didn't like the RoundRock one at all.
i thought the brisket was incredibly chewy and tough...went there twice.
Hated the BBQ sauce... sweet honey/mustardy. Yuck.
