Gosh, I hope the iced tea is better. Should be against the law for a Bar-B-Que place to have bad iced tea!

Our car usually turns in at Round Rock Bar-B-Que on 620 before we get close enough to Salt Lick North. Pretty good iced tea. I might need an event to pull me over to the new Salt Lick.

Are you talking about the Driftwood Ice Tea? They use well water for all of their drinks which make them kind of gross IMO. So in addition to bringing our beer, we also bring a gallon of water when we go.

Salt Lick is 90% ambiance (for all the reasons above). I'd probably not bother going if it weren't for the location in Driftwood. I especially like taking out of towners since the bbq is still better than you can get elsewhere in the country and its really an ideal example of central texas down to the building itself. This time of year, since the sun goes down so early and its a bit chilly, I'd probably take someone to Lockhart.
