One glance at one of The Salt Lick's colossal on-site open barbecue pit, and it becomes clear that this Austin staple has truly been cooking since its opening in 1967. With the classic, mouthwatering scent of Americana barbecue pervading the restaurant, you will want to order everything on the menu. Thus the combo plate is the perfect way to be able to sample all that The Salt Lick has to offer: brisket, ribs, sausage and turkey as well as delectable potato salad, beans and cole slaw. For those tried and true barbecue aficionados, The Salt Lick offers family style dining featuring all you can eat proteins and sides.
