If, in your mind, Texas + food = barbecue, the Salt Lick is the place for you. A hoppin' joint out in the middle of the Hill Country, a 30-minute drive southwest of Austin, it's jammed most weekends with 'cue aficionados lining the indoor wooden picnic tables and eating themselves into a carnivorous stupor. Go with the family-style option, and for less than $20 per person the waiter will bring platter after platter of first-rate ribs, brisket, sausage—plus all the sides—until you say uncle. It's BYOB, so make sure to bring a cooler of ice-cold Shiner Bocks (brewed in nearby Shiner, Texas). Oh, and your credit is no good here—cash only.
