After leaving Opie's, our 2nd BBQ stop of the day, our late-December Texas Q Tours group spent several hours doing some non-BBQ stuff: Natural Bridge Caverns, San Antonio (Mercado, The Alamo, The River Walk), & a pitstop at Buc-ee's that turned into a jerky stop. Right on schedule, we arrived at The Salt Lick at 8:45 PM for our final BBQ meal of the trip. Once our crew passed the iconic holding pit just inside the front door, they made their way to our table at the back...
...and placed their orders.
Very shortly thereafter, their dinners arrived, and it was all camera phones and all smiles.
Before they loaded back into the van to head back to the hotel, our group got together for a farewell pic.
Make no mistake: These East-and-West Coasters can eat! They mowed down 7 BBQ meals (not counting the BBQ they had on their own and the non-BBQ food they had during the trip) in 2 days and were still standing and smiling when it was all said and done. If I may take the liberty to speak on behalf of, well, Texas: Job well done!!!
