Best Barbecue

The Salt Lick

While the landscape on the drive out to this Driftwood barbecue mainstay may have changed over the years - "progress" has wrought its share of look-alike mega-home developments - the atmosphere has not. Pull into the Lick's lot on any given weekend and a fiesta's going on. The Roberts family have been Q-ing up Central Texas for years, and the friendly feel of the picnic table dining room have folks coming back for more. When it's served "family style" (all you can eat), even folks hitting deep meat stupor will hear themselves uttering the words, "Yes, please!"
