Salt Lick BBQ
If you want your dining experience to be more curated, we suggest Texas BBQ located near gate 20. Salt Lick is open at 5am daily, so no matter what time your layover happens, there’s a good chance you can pick up some smoked meats. We’re not sure if you’re actually allowed to board a plane out of Texas until you’ve consumed your weight in brisket, so make this a must-see stop.
Clearly, a trip to Austin’s airport is a worthwhile trip in its own right. So use the time you have to your advantage. With the best to offer in local food, music, culture, and style, you don’t have to leave the airport to enjoy a thoroughly Austin experience.
