Travelers flying into and out of the Austin airport will get more of a local barbeque favorite when Salt Lick Bar-B-Que relocates and doubles in size.
Salt Lick doubles in size at Austin airport
Austin icon, Salt Lick Bar-B-Que, world renowned barbecue with a side of Texas Hill Country hospitality, will more than double its current airport footprint. This customer favorite currently operates in the Barbara Jordan Terminal in 650 square feet of space and will expand to 1,454 square feet.
Salt Lick will continue to operate during construction in its current location, in the west food court across from Gate 12. Salt Lick’s new location will be opposite of its existing spot between Gates 12-13, behind the construction wall near Mangia Pizza that has now closed.
The new airport Salt Lick will have its own seating including bar chairs, dining tables and communal tables to offer group and individual seating. Along with a large, glowing canopy of wood and metal mesh, the restaurant designs include its signature curved carving station and sangria dispensers incorporated into its rustic, industrial look. Rails for barbeque sauces and power outlets are planned at each seat along with numerous screens located throughout the distressed wood and rough stone designed restaurant.
Along with brisket, savory breakfast tacos, sausage, sauces and rubs are popular menu items.
