What a century! What an odyssey!
I didnt know Hisako Roberts well, and until now, never really knew her background or the full imprint that she left on people and on Austin.
I have been a Salt Lick customer since 1983, the year I moved to Austin, and, with my wife, have brought people to the Salt Lick from all over the world to give them a taste of authentic Texas barbeque in an authentic atmosphere.
I recall Ms. Roberts working the cash register in the early days, and I would see her sitting at a table watching the activity and exuding quiet authority. I never knew that the table was known as Table 14.
It is hard to imagine the vision in a young lady, born in Hawaii 45 years before statehood, who saw the possibility so rare at the time to get two degrees from UCLA. And then for her to see something in a young sailor that would change her life and add so happily to the lives of so many central Texans.
A life exceptionally well lived and an inspiration to those she left behind. I hope those close to her find comfort in knowing that she brought a gift to so many of us in Central Texas, a gift that will keep on giving for years to come.

I used to run into Hisako at the Driftwood PO not that many years ago now...and she drove herself! Had to be in her 90s then. I remember her well working behind the register in the original restaurant also. In charge, taking and giving orders. She always, always amazed me. Just a rock solid woman far much larger than her 4'11 height. I cannot but be amazed when I think of her experience because my own mother was at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked and for her to move to the Hill Country in the 40's when the Hays County roads were still gravel, Camp Ben McCulloch was across the creek from her home and the war still more than fresh in minds...she had to be an amazing person to have made that move and then come out so on top. Well done Hisako Tsuchiyama Roberts. We are not worthy...

Scott, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother. I know she will missed.

Condolences to Scott and the Roberts family. Scott was in part, a welcoming "force" in my family's decision to relocate to Driftwood. He is a reflection of values that were instilled in him by Mr and Mrs Roberts.
