|Texas Driftwood | The Salt Lick BBQ Restaurant|

It has never came across my mind that the mission of The Salt Lick BBQ was an adventure, passing through cowboy land where signposts of wild animal are prominent and I did not even realize when we arrived. Guess what, the place was not what I expected. Nothing luxury, everything is back to basic.
Nestled against the country ranches, The Salt Lick BBQ holds a charming farm atmosphere. Parking area
occupies the area behind. Rustic wood structure with triangle roof-top on one end is where the restaurant or indoor dining area is located. Opposite is an ample outdoor space with wood benches and tables, serves a great waiting corner as s well as the spot for picnic-style of 'The Salt Lick BBQ' (to-go) dining and BYOB. At the same time, you would be entertained by live country music. This feature tends to let us forget how
long we had waited since we were there on the Independence's Day weekend!
In less than 30 minutes, our turn was called and we headed into the rustic building. Oh my, the huge traditional BBQ pit is right after the entrance, behind the counter. With the smoke from open fire oak, appealing aroma in the air and the sight of sausages, beef and ribs lying on the pit, I am convinced that this is right place for Texas BBQ!
I went for a platter of combo meat with my choice of brisket, ribs and turkey in order to save some room for dessert.
I am never a big fan of barbecue but I would say the turkey is lean as of what I love especially with plenty of The Salt Lick sauce. Brisket (beef) is moist which means a bit too fatty for me, I would prefer it lean (something I overlooked, I should have told the server my preference). Sausage (from my SO's platter) is good but the pork ribs is just fine. What I love most? Surprisingly, it is their signature sauce. I have never had enough of it!
For cobbler, we asked for a mixed of raspberry and peach. Served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream, it is a great choice and how I wish I have more room for it!
