Straight from Driftwood, Texas, the Salt Lick Bar-B-Q has served authentic smoked barbecue dishes with a hometown smile since 1967. The dining room is decorated like a warm hunting lodge with stone and natural accents. There is a large bar and even an open kitchen that allows the smoky smell to creep out and entice anyone passing by. Although there aren’t many genuine barbeque places in town, there are even fewer places that serve Texas barbeque. They even serve Texas micro brews at the bar. Smoked meats like baby back ribs, brisket, and pork are served tender and juicy after they have been slow smoked for hours. Even the sides go through the smoker. Their smoked macaroni and cheese will be the best you’ve ever had. As you may have guessed, Salt Lick Bar-B-Que makes their own barbeque sauce daily which has a vinegar base and is a little bit sweeter than most.
