Owner Scott Roberts of Driftwood, Texas’ Salt Lick says his restaurant has the “best damn barbecue” in the country. Sure, he may be a tad biased but he’s not alone. The writer of this Business Insider story about The Salt Lick says it’s the place to go if you have time for just one restaurant in Austin. What started as the most rustic of Texas barbecue pits has grown over the decades into a very comfortable, almost upscale (as barbecue restaurants go) sit-down eatery. While we wouldn’t go so far as to call it Texas’ finest, we think any barbecue tour of Texas is incomplete without a visit to The Salt Lick.
