I changed the name of this thread as the Denver trip is long past and the trip to Texas is getting close. I’ve started to think about my schedule a little more.
It looks like my wife and I will stop in Lockhart for a hopefully early lunch on Thursday, Oct. 13. We’ll definitely go to Smitty’s and Black’s. Kreuz’s will depend on whether I have any appetite left after the first two. If anyone in the area is going to be free that day, you’re more than welcome to join us. Just send me a PM.
Another question ….. I work at a newspaper and our Travel section editor is from the South and has some interest in me writing about my dining experiences while in Texas. She apparently went to school down there because she told me her graduation party was held at the Salt Lick. She absolutely loves that place and I think would like me to include it if I write an article about the trip. I’m already planning on going to Lockhart and Louis Mueller in Taylor and may try to hit one of the top BBQ places right in Austin while we’re there.
Can any of you give me your opinions of the Salt Lick? Is the BBQ very good or is it more about the experience? If we go, to get the full experience, do I need to go to the Driftwood location, or would Round Rock be as good?
If I do decide to go to the Salt Lick, I’ll probably put out the date and time at some point soon to see if there is any interest in joining us.
Thanks again for your help.
