Austin Travel Diary, Part 19: The Salt Lick’s Delicious Barbecue

The Salt Lick’s van

On our final night in Austin, the b5media crew had a barbecue at the b5 ranch with food supplied by The Salt Lick, widely regarded as one of the best barbecue places in the area. Here’s what their van brought us:

The food we ordered from The Salt Lick: pork ribs, brisket, sausage, beans, coleslaw, potatoes, barbecue sauce, blackberry cobbler, peach cobbler.

  • Pork ribs
  • Beef brisket
  • kielbasa
  • coleslaw
  • beans
  • potatoes
  • peach cobbler
  • blackberry cobbler
  • pickles
  • loads and loads of barbecue sauce

Darcie: What do you mean my margaritas are poisonously strong?

For drinks, we had a keg of beer on ice and Darcie’s poisonously strong margaritas, and Darren added to the dessert offerings with Tim Tams he brought all the way from Australia. Dinner was followed by a giant bonfire and some roughhousing around the pool (three victims claimed).

It looks like a feast fit for several kings and queens. Those pork ribs look mighty tasty.

You’ve definitely convinced me to put Texas on my to visit list.

My favorite thing about the salt lick a few years back was their menu with “Chicken (when in season)” on it. WTF! When is chicken season? Is Chicken now a vegetable? Or is Chicken season when the truck driving down the road full of chickens takes the nearby corner a bit too fast?
