About Us

The Salt Lick has been serving the Hill Country and Austin area mouthwatering barbecue for generations!  Our unique flavor dates back to 1967 when Thurman Roberts and his sons built the legendary BBQ pit, which still stands in our Driftwood Restaurant today.  Since then, we have hosted and catered to events both large and small all across the country.  Catering is a major decision when it comes to party planning- so why not go with a sure-win?  Our event team takes pride in being a part of celebrations and treating your guests to Salt Lick is sure to be a crowd pleaser. 

Planning a backyard wedding with your closest friends?  We can cater to that.  Looking for an upscale dinner service with elevated sides and salads with a Salt Lick twist?  We can cater to that.  Our full-service catering starts at a 50-person minimum Monday through Thursday, and a 75-person minimum Friday- Sunday.  You can certainly have fewer guests than these minimums, but baseline pricing begins based off those headcounts.  Our base pricing includes staff to arrive onsite one hour prior to dinner serve to set up, 1.5 hours of the self-serve buffet with staffing to clear tables as guests finish with their plates, and half an hour of catering breakdown.  Pricing includes tables with linens for the buffet, a self-serve iced tea and water station with linen, ice, sweeteners, straws, etc., and all disposable plates, utensils, cups and napkins.  And that’s just the beginning.  We offer non-BBQ, gluten-free, vegetarian and southern-inspired hors d’ hoeurves that you can add to these base menus, optional sides and salads to elevate the experience for your guests, or even our famous peach cobbler to serve alongside your wedding cake. With more than 15 years of experience in the wedding industry, we have seen and done it all.  We are equipped to set up ceremony chairs, set up your tables & chairs,  create your perfect place setting and napkin fold, pass appetizers, cut cake, pour drinks, breakdown tables & chairs, re-crate rentals, haul ALL the trash off from your event and more. We customize additional staffing options for any event based on your preferences.  Email us for a customized staffing fee so you can sit back and enjoy the big day, without worrying about the setup and breakdown needed to fulfill your vision. 

Need a space for a rehearsal dinner?  We are proud to offer four private dining room options within the Driftwood Restaurant which are available for rentals Monday through Friday.  You can view capacities & take virtual tours through our website at
