  • Our guests raves about how beautiful the venue was. A sunset in the background of the reception only added to the beauty. Of course, everyone loved the bbq. Jena was easy to work with and very responsive. So happy we chose this location

  • Our wedding was at Pecan Grove this August, and I couldn't recommend the venue more wholeheartedly! My husband and I planned the wedding from overseas, and our coordinators were super flexible in working out the details from afar. In fact, we chose Pecan Grove because they did most of the work for us - they have a set bar vendor, plus they do set-up, clean-up, decorations, and catering (my relatives from Germany lost their minds over The Salt Lick's BBQ). Pecan Grove itself (where we had our ceremony) is even more beautiful than I realized from the photos before we arrived in person, and the glass-walled pavilion was perfect for the reception (and COOL...very important in the August Texas heat!). The event staff were all impressive professionals, not to mention down-to-earth nice people, who made the reception run like clockwork. In short, every aspect of the wedding and The Salt Lick's venue and staff exceeded my expectations, and I'd get married at Pecan Grove again in a heartbe... Read more

  • We choose to have our celebration at the Pecan Grove. Our contact with Pecan Grove was Megan Burley. She was wonderful, very sweet and responded to any questions or concerns we had promptly. She was very professional and made sure to get every detail so that the day went smoothly. We would highly recommend Megan and Pecan Grove for your special day or any event. It has a beautifully rustic decor and a nice surrounding outdoors area. We had our event catered by SaltLick BBQ and it was definitely a crowd pleaser.

  • The Salt Lick catered my spring wedding and the food was amazing. I heard nothing but good things from all guests, many being from out of town and enjoying Texas BBQ for the first time. I also owe many thanks to Callie, the event coordinator for the Salt Lick. She put up with me and my husband for almost a year! She had given us multiple different quotes and even had to redo our invoice a few times due to our indecision. She NEVER complained. She was great to work with! Thank you to both Callie and the Salt Lick!

  • We did our rehearsal dinner for 60 people in the Garden Room on a Thursday night. Getting everything set up was very easy. They were always responsive and made the process very pleasant. The staff was great. We were winging it in terms of when we were doing speeches etc, and the staff was always checking with us on when food should come out and if we needed anything. The family style BBQ was great and they were great and making sure no one ever ran out. Everyone from out of town thought it was great. They also packed up all the beer into coolers for us after the fact so it was easy for us. At the end of the night they sent us home with a bunch of BBQ, let guests take home anything left on their tables and gave us a very nice thank you card.

  • The venue was great and the food was delicious! Carson, the venue event planner,was extremely responsive with all email/phone correspondence. She was great at explaining everything and providing options. I would definitely recommend the venue for a wedding after the experience we had.

  • I cannot say enough about how AMAZING Carson (event coordinator) and Thurman's Mansion were! Of all the days to rain, it rained on our wedding day but I did not stress one bit because Carson had everything under control and a plan B was already under way. I really wanted the outdoor wedding but the inside wedding in front of the fireplace in the mansion was more beautiful and intimate than the outdoor wedding could have ever been in my opinion. The all you can eat barbecue and peach cobbler from Salt Lick is always phenomenal and it was on our wedding day as well. The service and set up that the mansion provided was on point (everything was GORGEOUS!) and the banquet captains (Adrian and Adrian) did an excellent job making sure us and our guests had what we needed/wanted. I received and am still receiving so many compliments from everyone about how beautiful everything looked, the service that they received, and how awesome the food was. Guests have also told me that our wedding was th... Read more

  • We used them for our rehearsal dinner in the banquet room for 75 people. The room was huge, we added the AV equipment for our slideshow which was perfect and our waiters were on top of their game and so great! Needless to say the food was delicious, which is the whole reason my fiance wanted to use this place in the first place!

  • We chose to have our wedding at Thurmans Mansion so we could have Salt Lick BBQ cater it. We are from NYC so all communication was through email and phone, with the exception of a one time meeting 11 months before the big day. We were working with Katie who was very helpful. Once we started getting closer to the date, I had questions and emailed Katie many times without a response. It was extremely frustrating. Finally, I emailed the main address and got a response within 2 days from Megan. Turns out, Katie left the company and no one had notified me or gave me a different contact person. Once Megan understood my frustration, she was unbelievably helpful and responsive to my many questions. Due to the change of contact person, some things were not as we were originally told. Prices went up from what we were originally quoted, which was the biggest issue we had. All in all, our day was fantastic, our guests had a fantastic time and the food was amazing. Those issues we had pri... Read more

  • We love Salt Lick and were very fortunate to get it for our wedding, it was a huge hit with everyone. We did pick up ourselves, because we had people onsite at our venue to staff the wedding and we were working with a limited budget. I took off some stars because they were difficult to work with--we got vastly different quotes different times we called (for the exact same food order), and they tried to majorly upsell us (e.g. doubled the cost per pound) once we passed the 75 person mark. I understand they are a business wanting to make money, but it was not about their volume, it was just a profit opportunity. We wound up splitting our order in half and having 2 people order it separately, which saved us about 40%. BTW--for the vegetarians we got Falafel wraps at Phonecia Bakery, so cheap and delicious it worked out great.

  • We wanted to show our out-of-town guests how a Texas wedding is done, so naturally, we needed some BBQ. Despite being more expensive than some other BBQ caterers, Salt Lick was worth it. The food was amazing and all of our friends and family raved about it (and still do!). We made cute favors to match our theme that included some of Salt Lick's BBQ rub (purchased separately from the catering package) and all of our friends used it within weeks of the wedding. A few guests even purchased more through their website! All in all, Salt Lick provided what many guests said was the best food and experience that they had ever had at a wedding.

  • The Pecan Grove Pavilion is beautiful and provides the perfect balance for my casual but traditional wedding reception. Carson has been wonderful to work with and has been very efficient with getting in touch with us and helping us with planning the reception. She has also been very flexible with us having the reception on our desired date even though there is an afternoon event on the same day. The Salt Lick also has great relationships with many other vendors who are all familiar with the venue and have been very willing to work with us out there. Plus, you can't go wrong with Salt Lick BBQ!
