When looking for the best BBQ in the USA, I think the general consensus is that Texas has the best in the game. If you find the best BBQ in Texas, you find the best in the country. Well, as much as I would love to travel all across Texas looking for the best BBQ, I cant say I have the time or means to do so. But, I was in Austin, TX one time for my friends wedding and that is when I had the best BBQ of all time (in my opinion) Throughout my time in Austin, I asked as many locals as I possibly could, where the best place was to get some good old fashioned Texas BBQ. I got a bunch of different answers but the place that kept coming back into discussion was the Salt Lick. The more and more I heard of this place, I swear I had been told of it’s reputation once before. I was right. Salt Lick had been featured on Man Vs. Food. How could I forget? When I had some free time, I finally got to see what all the hype was about. I was not disappointed! The only bummer about the Salt Lick is that its about a 45 minute drive outside the city limit, but it is totally worth the drive. Please do not let distance get in the way of what I think is some of the best BBQ you will ever have in your life! What I liked the most about the restaurant was that there is an open pitt inside the restaurant. Seriously, what other places have that feature? I cannot even begin to explain how much meat is in this place. It’s absolutely out of this world. When looking or some great quality BBQ, go no further then the Salt Lick in Austin, TX.
