Who's doing Real BBQ in Las Vegas? in Southwest & Western States: Dining Posted December 6, 2009 Salt Lick closed because basically no one ate there. It will reopen as "Yard House" a bar/restaurant. "RUB" BBQ may also have closed, I went there last week, and their was a temporary wall where the restaurant used to be...not sure if its renovations or just closed for good. Vegas is a very weak BBQ Town, just about everytime I go to one, they are dead. No local support for BBQ:( You might want to try Lucille's BBQ at "The District" by green valley ranch.
