Since early April, Driftwood-based Salt Lick BBQ has been operating a food truck in downtown Dripping Springs. After initially opening a few times a week, this week the food truck expanded service, and will be serving every day from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Located in The Triangle between W. Hwy 290, RM 12 and Mercer Street, the food truck offers chopped beef and pulled pork sandwiches, sausage wraps, brisket, ribs and sides. While unsure if the truck will be a permanent feature, the company plans to be in Dripping Springs “for quite a while” according to Kelly Hughes of Giant Noise, the public relations firm that represents Salt Lick.


Salt Lick’s local brick and mortar location is at 18300 FM 1826, Driftwood, and is currently open for curbside, takeout and picnic seating outside. 512-858-4959. www.saltlickbbq.com
