  • We got married at Pecan Grove and had a wonderful experience working with this venue. This is a naturally gorgeous venue that is always well kept regardless of what season it is which allowed us to save money and keep decorations pretty simple...pretty much floral centerpieces, candles, some cute signs and family photos, done! Rachel was very responsive to all of our questions leading up to the big day and all the staff we encountered were incredibly helpful and professional. We had both the ceremony and reception here so were able to utilize the bridal suite. The space was perfect for getting ready and for being able to step away and have a quick quiet moment with my husband during the festivities. Some of our family has had salt lick bbq before so were already thrilled that they were catering, but it was a special treat for our family who came from out of town. We kept hearing how full everyone was and that they went back for 2nds and 3rds!! We actually had more food that we needed d... Read more

  • I had my wedding here on 10/20/18 and worked with Carson during the planning process. She responded to all of my emails extremely promptly - almost always within a couple hours! - and was very patient with me and my millions of questions. The day went off without a hitch and everyone had an amazing time. I want to get re-married here every year!! Thank you, Salt Lick team!!

  • Our wedding at Pecan Grove was perfect! The Salt Lick team was incredibly accommodating and responsive throughout the whole planning process. Many of our guests were from out of town and we loved giving them a taste of delicious Texas BBQ. Everybody raved about how beautiful the space was and the pictures turned out gorgeous. It was truly a wonderful day!

  • This review is long-overdue. When my husband and I were looking for a wedding venue, we researched several places around the country. There were spreadsheets and pro/con lists, and The Salt Lick was the clear winner. We both met in Texas, but live in New Jersey, and have family all over, so we needed something central. Not to mention the fact that The Salt Lick is our favorite Texas BBQ. From the beginning, everyone at the venue was so helpful and responsive, particularly since we were planning from afar. We chose Thurman's Mansion for our big day. We worked with Samantha, Carson, and Callie, and all of them were great - from the catering, to figuring out the open bar, to the ceremony and reception set up, to working with our vendors, and answering all of our many questions. We were able to set up our rehearsal for the day before, which went great. The day of, we were greeted with some snacks in our rooms where we got ready, as well as gifts (including some really comfy t-shirts). We h... Read more

  • I cannot say enough nice things about Thurman's Mansion (one of the Salt Lick venues) and especially Carson Saldivar. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. You don't have to worry about hiring a caterer as Salt Lick makes the food on-site. Many of our guests were from out of town and we loved providing them the best BBQ in the world! Our guests told us it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The hill country views from the venue were spectacular. Carson, Adrian, and the rest of the Thurman's Mansion staff did an amazing job and worked really hard to make our wedding beautiful and easy for us to plan. They were easy going and went out of their way to accommodate all of our crazy questions and requests. We had an amazing time! Thank you Thurman's Mansion, the Salt Lick and Carson!

  • Thurman's was the perfect venue for us! We loved its size, the beautiful view and the well-situated ceremony site. We served their famous Salt Lick BBQ and our guests loved it! The appetizers were great, the bar package was perfect, the service was timely. I had so much fun at my wedding-they helped make it possible.

  • My husband and I got married at the Pecan Grove on February 11th, 2017, and from this moment, I have ZERO complaints for negative comments. From the very beginning of the process of selecting the venue, the venue coordinator, Carson, was very helpful with everything. Every time my husband and i had a question, Carson made it so easy to contract her and ask her all type of questions. In her quick responses, she provided all the information we needed to know and made the process very easy. From selecting the meal option, to the layout of the chairs, Carson made it easy. I'll be honest and say getting married here is a little pricey but at the end its ALL WORH IT!! From this day, we still get told that the food, the peach cobbler the service, the drinks were ALL AMAZING! So like i said, the price is well worth it and i could see myself coming back on our 25th or 30th anniversary and celebrating it there. In conclusion...SALT LICK is the BEST BBQ JOINT IN TEXAS. So good, that my husband an... Read more

  • A family member told us to look at this venue...This was our first wedding in our family. We live in the Dallas area. Thurman Mansion is a beautiful venue...The view is over looking the hill country. The food was wonderful. Many of our guest remarked about getting a beautiful place and the food was outstanding. Along with the ambience, the food, the staff was so professional throughout the whole process of our planning throughout the wedding. Jena our coordinator was always available when ever i called. She answered every email in a timely matter, offered every service and tool to see how our room could be laid out with tables and chairs. There were not any surprises with extra fees. Jena communicated well and made sure every detail was taken care of. We were very pleased.

  • Organized my stepdaughters wedding at Pecan Grove, Salt Lick with Samantha who made the entire process a breeze, especially given the entire wedding was planned via phone/email from NJ. Samantha ensured the day went without a hitch. Pecan Grove was the perfect venue for a typical Texan, bbq, wedding. The Salt Lick bbq food was of course amazing and way too much, we could've fed Austin with the leftovers! If you are looking for a carefree, casual, indoor/outdoor wedding in a simple venue that embraces the stunning setting , Pecan Grove is the place and Samantha is your girl. Shout out to John the banquet captain too who ensured the food service went smoothly.

  • I had my wedding at Thurman's Mansion in April, and it was absolutely beautiful! We had 142 people, and had the ceremony outdoors and the reception indoors. Samantha, the event coordinator, was a pleasure to work with and everything went flawlessly. I really liked that the venue is all-inclusive when it comes to things like tables, tablecloths, staffing, catering, and beverages. It really helped me not have to deal with as many vendors and made my life easier! The only thing I would've liked was to be able to have my rehearsal the day before at a later time - please note that if you're looking to have your rehearsal the day before, they close at 5 so the rehearsal would need to be at 4 pm. Otherwise, this venue is highly recommended and we had a wonderful time!

  • We knew before we started planning our wedding that we would like to use The Salt Lick and we looked at nearby venues in Driftwood with that in mind. We felt we'd found the perfect combination of caterer and venue. We also wanted some authentic Texas bbq for our out-of-town guests and The Salt Lick didn't disappoint! The Salt Lick was as delicious as expected! Their service was professional and spoken well of by the venue. They set up and cleaned up really well and discreetly. We would absolutely recommend The Salt Lick and use them again for other future events.

  • My first weekend living in Texas a good friend took me to Salt Lick BBQ and I loved it. When planning my outdoor, laid back wedding I knew that Salt Lick would be great for the wedding. The quality of food from the catering side was comparable to their restaurant, and the people were easy to work with. All my out of state guests loved it, and convinced them that Texas BBQ is worth the trip. They were also flexible enough to open the buffet early because my guests were starving because they decided to skip lunch for reasons passing understanding. Saved me from 75 people with just beer/wine and no food!
