Salt Lick Creamery: Grilled cheese sandwiches and ice cream with a twist. (You are going to love it.)

Updated: Apr 10


If you love a good grilled cheese sandwich as much as I do, make plans to head to Bluff Dale where you’ll find a quaint restaurant that dishes up a whole lot of uniqueness.


Aaron and Taylor Akin purchased Salt Lick Creamery in Bluff Dale in September after the previous owner closed its Granbury and Stephenville locations.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner four days a week, serving a mouth-watering array of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches like The Philly (white bread topped with provolone, chopped steak, roasted bell peppers and mayo), The Michael Angelo (mozzarella and provolone, pepperoni, pizza sauce and Italian seasoning) and the Creole Chicken (swiss, shredded chicken, sauteed mushrooms, bell peppers, purple onion, ground mustard and remoulade).


See what I mean? Delish.


Taylor says the B.A.T. (rosemary sourdough bread topped with gouda, cheddar, bacon, avocado and tomato) and the Blueberry Jalapeno are customer favorites.


“I make the blueberry jalapeno preserve that goes on the sandwich,” Taylor told Beneath the Surface News. “It’s super popular.”


If it’s a sweet tooth you’ve got, Salt Lick Creamery can help with that too.


All of Salt Lick's ice cream is made in-house.

The restaurant offers an amazing selection of ice cream by the scoop, in a pint or as a shake.


“The previous owner developed the recipe and passed it down to us,” Taylor said. “She showed me how to make a few batches and it was pretty smooth sailing after that.”


The five flavors you’ll always find at Salt Lick include vanilla, dairy and gluten free vanilla, raspberry goat cheese (tastes like cheesecake), brownie batter (for the chocolate lovers) and cookie monster (vanilla with chocolate chip cookies and Oreos).


Taylor says she is always experimenting with different flavors and keeps three on rotation.


One of her favorites is candied maple pecan.


“Last week we had caramel macchiato, honey pistachio and snickerdoodle and they were huge hits,” she said. “This week’s new flavor is chocolate covered cherry.

“We want our customers to sample all the flavors before making a decision so they get exactly what they want.”

One thing you won’t find at Salt Lick is artificial food coloring in any of their products. They also offer gluten and dairy-free ice cream and sandwich options.


Let Salt Lick Creamery cater your next event or host a field trip at its creamery.


The Akin family lives in Stephenville.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and will extend its hours of operation to 9 p.m. beginning in April.


Salt Lick Creamery is located at 28550 Hwy. 377 (directly across from Wilfong’s Cajun Shack and Oyster Bar).
