On New Years Eve, we did what all people do; we jumped in the truck and drove about 2 hours up the road to the Ikea store located north of Austin in Round Rock.
The Salt Lick.
Our waitress was quick and friendly, chatting about the location and the original in Driftwood, and returning frequently with iced tea refills.
The brisket was outstanding and I would easily put it on par with any of the best brisket we have had in San Antonio, including places like Augie's. There was no fighting it, it cut and chewed easily and the taste was great. The ribs were just okay. Not a complaint at all, only to say, not worth a two hour drive on their own. If the meal had consisted of just the sides and the ribs, I'd have been disappointed.
