Great Sauce
Salt Lick has a distinct sauce which I love which is their biggest plus for me. I had their pork ribs (they don't offer beef) which were quite good. I went on a Saturday evening and it was CROWDED. Very long wait so if you don't like waiting 45 minutes or so you might want to avoid Salt Lick. The place is very large with 2-3 different eating areas which are all used on busy days. Attracts many students and large groups, you'll see lots of parties of 8-12 people. You also need to BYOB and many people have large ice chests with them.

Best BBQ in Texas
The brisket and ribs were the best I've ever had and the sauce is unique and delicious. The BYOB family style atmosphere made it a memorable experience for me and my family. We were there on a weekend evening and there was a long wait, but there was live music as entertainment and the wait staff gave out some samples so we didn't really mind the wait. I will definitely go back when I'm in Austin next (might even plan special trips for it).

Best BBQ i've ever had; great atmosphere
Honestly, I've had a lot of good bbq and Salt Lick is by far the best. The sauce is amazing and every one of the meats is cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is very cool since it is BYOB and they cook all the meat on a huge open flame BBQ pit which you won't find really anywhere else. If you visit Austin and don't go to the Salt Lick, then you haven't really visited Austin. I can't wait to go back next time I'm in Austin.

didn't like the RoundRock one at all
i thought the brisket was incredibly chewy and tough...went there twice.

Hated the BBQ sauce... sweet honey/mustardy. Yuck.

hated it.

Not worth the hype!
Drove up from Houston because of the hype surrounding this place. The location, including the scenic drive are great. The building itself is pretty cool. I was having a great time until the food arrived.
Sides - Dry and in editable. The beans where hard, the colslaw had saw too much celery and the potato salad was like nothing I'd ever had.
Meat - The ribs are not baby backs so beware. Personal choice but I like my ribs saucy, tender and not fatty. Salt Lick's were none of the above. The brisket and turkey where tasty at first but very dry.
Also - no credit card ($2.50 for ATM), min charge of $5, 15% charge for parties 8+ and various other rules.
