  • If you need a quick taste of Texas, the airport's little Salt Lick stand will do-fer-ya. Not to be confused with the Salt Lick Taco Bar.
  • The best barbecue I've ever had, it's just as good at the airport as at their original location!
  • If you can't get to Driftwood, this isn't a bad alternative.
  • crazy cafeteria style set-up threw me for a loop first time but the BBQ is probably some of the best!
  • Great atmosphere. And here's a tip: order by the pound versus "family style." That way, you can add smoked turkey and chicken and/or beef ribs to your feast.
  • yea it's in the airport, but this is the real deal
  • Start your Austin experience off right. Personal favorite BBQ stop. There is another location a little out of town.
  • Don't leave Austin without eat a brisket plate with bread.
  • Get to the airport early so you can try this place. It's worth it.
  • Best breakfast tacos at the airport (by go get salsa at Maudies!!)
  • Chopped Brisket Sandwich, extra gravy. Kill the top slice of bread and knife and fork it
  • Buy a gift pack to bring some Austin flavor back home.
  • BBQ baked potato is good, filling and cheaper than the plates. Get it loaded & dig in.
  • Bisquits w/ brisket gravy is the best bfast value at ABIA
  • Portions are huge. Order one taco and an extra tortilla.
  • More than 55 tons of brisket sold at this location of the Salt Lick in 2013. Chase it with Amy's Mexican vanilla ice cream.
  • Right up there on the list of great airport food. High quality stuff right here. I'll stop in on arrival if the line is not too long.
  • The best Brisket I have ever had, and I have had a lot.
  • Great choice for airport food
  • Love the Brisket at the airport...or go caveman and just ask for a plate of meat.
