Austin, TX~The Salt Lick

So, the good news is that we now have Internet in our apartment! Whoo-hoo! *happy dance* Now I can continue blogging about Mike and my food adventures in Austin, TX.  Mike's highlight of Austin was "The Salt Lick," an extremely famous bar-b-que joint that has been featured on numerous television shows.  If I'm not mistaken, in an episode of the TV Food Networks, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," both Duff Goldman and Bobby Flay said this was their favorite place for BBQ.
Look at all that barbecued meat!  The smoke pit was filled with sausage, brisket, and ribs!

I ordered the habanero smoked barbecue plate (~$14), which consisted of half a chicken, baked beans, potato salad and cole slaw. 
Mike ordered the all you can eat family style meal which included all you can eat beef, sausage, pork ribs, and sides (~$19).  He was in heaven! He said that this was the best beef brisket he has eaten in Texas. 
Mike did a good job attacking those ribs. 
This is a picture of my leftover chicken plate.  The portion was so huge that I was unable to finish it all.  

We left The Salt Lick with our bellies full and big huge grins on our faces. I think Mike dreams our next road trip back to Austin so that he can indulge in  BBQ again!
