THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Salt Lick BBQ Restaurant Review

: “What a mess, what a meal” is emblazoned on the paper placemats that also serve as the menus of this barbecue emporium out of Driftwood, Texas. You’ll feel like you’re dining at a ranch in this bustling eatery, which features an exhibition kitchen, beamed warehouse-style ceilings with track lights and ceiling fans, a bar-lounge where you can also dine and a glass-enclosed patio facing the dramatic Red Rocks formations. Among appetizers is shrimp diablo---jumbo shrimp stuffed with pickled jalapeños and onions and wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon, then grilled with Lauren’s BBQ sauce. Salt Lick’s version of Caesar salad also includes that applewood-smoked bacon. The menu runs the gamut from the child’s plate, a slow-smoked beef brisket slice, four pieces of smoked link sausage and a pork rib served with coleslaw, diced potatoes and pinto beans; to the senior plate, which offers double portions of the above. Salt Lick also offers an all-you-can-eat version of the same combination, served family style. We also like the slow-smoked turkey and chicken. Specialty cocktails, wine and beer, plus peach and berry cobbler and pecan pie, complement the hearty fare.
