A year ago and another visit. Definitely worth it. The ribs are fantastic. Don't bother with anything else unless you just like variety. Fall off the bone tender... and tasty, succulent and HUGE. And, service is faster than a NASCAR driver on steroids.

Have been going to Salt lick since 1971. Really great reliable BBQ, though slaw is inconsistent. Love the original location but Round Rock is closer and nice too. Sadly their prices have gone way up!
