The pork ribs I had we're great. Nice cold beer on tap. Located right next to the Round Rock Express ball park. Great place to eat right before catching a game.

We visited Round Rock to see family for Spring Break and were late getting into town. Even though we walked in just 15 mins before closing, we were greeted and served by a friendly staff. Service was excellent and we were checked on often; although that may have been them trying to get us to hurry up and eat so they could close LOL. Regardless, the baby back ribs were wonderful! Sides of beans, potato salad, and cole slaw were nothing special but didn’t necessarily need to be with such good ribs. I have eaten at the best BBQ restaurants in the South and I would rate the Salt Lick Baby Backs among the best!

Great BBQ. This restaurant is very large. I've rarely had to wait for a seat and the service is quick. I've had better BBQ thats a bit better but I've waited between 20 minutes and 2 and half hours to order it.

Salt Lick is a nice place to eat lunch. The servers are friendly, the atmosphere is casual and fun, and the food is pretty good. We ordered the senior citizen specials and they didn't even card us, even though we're way younger than 65, tee hee.

I wish I liked the food better, but I just find their side dishes to have very strange seasoning. The potato salad tastes downright weird to me. I couldn't bring myself to take more than a few bites.

The brisket and beans are okay. Service is excellent, really stands out for friendliness and promptness. Overall, Salt Lick is a decent place to stop, if you aren't expecting world-class barbecue.

We stopped in on our way to San Antonio. Very nice building and friendly staff. We had combo plates each and would have to sum up saying good BBQ with not so good sides. I had ribs and sausage and loved both. He had brisket ribs and sausage and loved all 3. The pot salad was odd with a cumin flavor. The coleslaw was pretty boring and the beans were ranch style without much pizazz. We did how ever LOVE the pickles that came on the side and although we didn’t eat the bread it looked like it would be tasty. So all and all meh it’s ok.
