ATXReview

Salty Sow is the perfect place for a group dinner, but not one with people who order the grilled chicken no matter where they’re eating. There can be no fear of duck fat fries, pork butt, obscure charcuterie, or the kinds of vegetables that haunted their childhoods (turnips). Come with some like-minded friends, get a big table outside, and don’t miss the slow cooked beef shoulder. Salty Sow also has one of the best happy hour food situations in town - the menu is two pages long and has food, wine, beer, and five different types of margaritas.
