Salt Lick BBQ

has anyone been to the Salt lick BBq at the New Red rock Casino in Las Vegas? I've seen the Original salt lick on the Food network and travel channel It's a Famous Open pit BBQ place in Texas

  1. are you sure the vegas one is actually affiliated with the one in driftwood, tx? because, considering the original's history, i highly doubt that they would open a location in vegas...

    (just did a little googling)

    well, whaddya is the same one! that's very odd...if they manage to set up a real bbq pit like they have here in tx, then it'll probably be really good...i assume they'll use the same sauce, which is SOOOOO yummy...i'd still be wary, but i guess it's worth a try!

      1. I actually went there on Saturday with a group of four. There was some question at first about how good it would be. But, it's great.

        First, portions are huge. Two women in the party ordered sandwiches. Salt Lick uses the loaves of bread they give out before the meal as buns. They could have split a sandwich without a problem. I had the beef, sausage and ribs combo. Beef is so tender, I cut it with a fork. Ribs also good. Sausage had a nice snap. Peach cobbler could have used more fruit but tasted good.

        Note: Red Rocks is far from the strip. You will need to rent a car. We had a car which was a good thing. It cost $20 to cab from the Mirage to Hash House a Go Go which is half the distance to Red Rocks.

        1. Yes, looks like Salt Lick is expanding beyond a bit, if with slight modifications to its recipes to suit the cooking conditions out there.

          Gotta wish them well if they can get it even 80% close to the mothership's meats.

              Are they replacing the Memphis Championship BBQ outpost that is already there?
