Maile Roberts-Loring

May 14th, 2014

In 1967, Maile Roberts-Loring’s dad and grandparents sat down to come up with a list of 54 things they should do together as a family. Opening The Salt Lick was 14 on the list. Forty seven years later, business is still booming and the Salt Lick has become an iconic figure on the BBQ scene. Armed with her MBA from University of Texas, this petite go-getter joined the family business in 2008. To give us a peek into how she entertains at home, Maile opened up her mid-century modern remodel in the rolling hills of West Austin for a Southern-inspired al fresco dinner on her patio with friends…Her family’s classic favorites like corn and pork ribs are on the menu, and this girl knows how to man the grill herself!
