Austin by Dorothy


Star 1


@missankle and Daniel are coincidentally in Austin, so we made plans to go out to the original outpost of The Salt Lick on New Year’s Day. My first impression: the restaurant is a lot bigger than I imagined. After a short wait (15 min?), during which we thoughtfully planned our order (go for meat by-the-pound and not the plates!), we were seated at a cozy long table. Our final tally after two rounds of ordering: 2.5lbs of pork ribs (the best of the night), roughly 1.5lbs of double cut beef ribs, 0.5lbs of sausage (also delicious), 0.5lbs of brisket (dry), a pint of baked beans, and a healthy slice of pecan pie a la mode. Tired and full, we painfully made our way back to the city. We had a lot of fun catching up with old friends Texas-style!
