    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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

    Not great. Edible, but not much better than that. I spent the previous week touring Austin, San Antonio, and New Braufels, eating at BBQ joints the whole way. This was the worst BBQ by a long stretch.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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?

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
