AOL Travel Editor’s Review

There’s something oh-so-right about smoked meat and BYO-beer, and The Salt Lick, 25 miles southwest of Austin, pays proper homage. Leave your vegetarian friends at home —everything here has some animal in it, unless you want bread for dinner. Brisket is king here, as is the smoked sausage, and the most meltingly good ribs ever to grace a plate. Get the combo platter to try all three, but don’t miss the sides—the beans, potato salad and coleslaw are all standouts. About the BYOB: The Salt Lick doesn’t have its liquor license, so the only legal way to suck down a cold one here is to bring your own. While they can’t open or pour it for you, servers will bring you buckets of ice so you can keep it cold.

  The food is great, and even when it is crowded the wait is not long.. Good service and very relaxing.. Try the cobbler with a scoop of ice cream tooo.
