The popular Salt Lick BBQ will soon be opening a new location in Grapevine.
The original restaurant located in Driftwood, Texas, has grown a huge fan base over the past 50 years. The restaurant is about 30 minutes southwest of Austin, and features an open style BBQ pit in the center of the restaurant.
The new location in Grapevine will sit on 10 acres, near the Kubota Headquarters north of Grapevine Mills Mall.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The restaurant will be nestled within trees that mimic the Texas Hill Country. There will also be plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.
"We have searched the Metroplex the last 10 years for a site where the look and feel of the place would remind us of the hill country and allow us to recreate the backyard BBQ party we have in Driftwood," Salt Lick BBQ owner Scott Roberts said in a news release. "We have finally found a hill country home in Grapevine."
Construction is expected to start later this year with an anticipated opening in late 2018.
