    Everything is good. The pulled pork is Texas style covered in BBQ sauce. Brisket was a touch dry, but ask for pieces with a lot of bark. Definitely pick up the dry rub to take home.

    Last chance BBQ - If you've somehow managed to travel through Austin, but not had the time to check out Texas BBQ, make sure you check in here! The Beef Brisket sandwich is tasty!

    Really hungry? Ask for no tortillas with your breakfast "taco" and they give you double the ingredients in a bowl. I know it's sacrilegious to get a tortilla-less taco, but hey, I'm a fat kid.

    They sell WHOLE BRISKETS to take away with you. If you get one, make sure to also get yourself a little to nosh on the flight. It's one thing to torture your fellow passengers but have some for you.

    I forgot how HUGE portions were here. Not as big as the Don Juan but comparable in amount of meat! Order the brisket, egg & cheese.

    If you get a breakfast taco they'll give you whatever you want. The sign says 2 items but everyone gets 3 or 4. Egg, bacon and cheese is most popular, of course!

    One of the best and least expensive places to eat in all the airports I've been too. I've been to a lot. They only have 3-4 items, but they are rock solid. Baja Brisket!

    The (BBQ) brisket sandwich was by far the best sandwich I've ever had. I took it with me on the plane to have for lunch and the other passengers were literally drooling with the smell! So good!

    Breakfast tacos are delicious. Get one with brisket and another with pulled pork. Really anything with that Salt Lick sauce is good.

    Great for airport food, but it can't be in the same conversation as some of the Austin bbq monsters. You'll pay more than you want, as expected for the airport.

    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.

    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.

    The chopped brisket sandwich is packed with smoky beef chunks and smothered with a lightly peppery sauce that helped bring out the taste of the meat. —WC http://bit.ly/NlI3mX

    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.

    Be sure to ask for BBQ sauce on the side! Although it's delicious, the cooks completely drown the meat in it. All things in moderation, right?

    Skip the breakfast sausage wrap and do for the breakfast tacos if you want eggs. The sausage wrap is just a dog like sausage wrapped in a small tortilla. Lazy!

    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. Read more

    They have tacos near the entrance and if you want bbq ribs or briskets just walk further to their actual place

    Great Bar-B-Q and excellent airport food. The sliced brisket was very tender & delicately smokey. Lives up to the airport chow hype.
  • Dave H.

    The brisket was dry. It wasn't bad overall, but after a few days of excellent BBQ around Austin it's also not the flavor you want to leave in your mouth compared with fresh from a smokehouse.

    Some of the best BBQ I've ever had... And it's in an airport. Love the buns on the sandwiches. Line moves quickly.

    Best airport food in The States. Be sure to get the brisket & sausage platter... You won't be disappointed.

    Potato w/ chopped brisket is the value winner. Add sausage for a little extra and eat as much as on the more expensive plates or sandwiches.

    Be nice to the folks on your flight. Enjoy your bar-b-q at the airport. Please don't get it to go and then torture people around you with the great smokey aroma.

    If You just want to want eat meat, ask for 3oz brisket $4! Ask for fattier cut for the most yummy BBQ brisket ever!

    If you're leaving Austin (or arriving), get the brisket sliders. They are delicious and the bread is so soft.

    Try the Loaded Baked Potato. It's not on the menu, but it's awesome. Sour cream, cheese, brisket, and BBQ sauce. Yum!

    Great bbq tacos in unique flavors. Good deal for $3.99 each. Go for broke and order all four!!

    Prices are ridiculous. $12 for sandwich & side!! $2.25 for a small candy bar!! Huge abuse of travel-weary folks. If u can't bring ur own food & drink thru security, there should price controls

    The breakfast tacos with BBQ sauce don't completely erase the pain of an early morning flight, but they help. A lot.

    Beware - a bacon egg breakfast taco is really an egg taco with bac'os sprinkled on top - Seriously? That's a crime against humanity. Does the mother ship know about this?

    The brisket sandwich combo is the right size where you won't feel like crap before getting on a plane.

    Did your carnivore friends drag you here? Vegetarians, don't worry. The mashed potatoes, coleslaw and bread are tasty!

    Get a scoop of the Green Chili Pulled Pork on a bed of cabbage. no need to waste those calories on a sub-par flour tortilla. (No corn tortilla option)

    This is for the airport outpost. Best food in the Austin airport and a decent adaptation of the original location

    If you're spending time at the Austin airport, The Salt Lick or The Salt Lick Taco Bar are THE places to eat.

    Brisket platter. The chicken & sausage are decent but nothing special. Ask for the fatty cuts, moister & tastier than the default lean cut at the airport.
