Salt Lick Reviews & Ratings
BBQ is really good. Beer & Wine selection only and limited. Sunday before noon to drink beer or wine must be paired with food per law. Service is fast, generous portions, and reasonable prices. Service craft beer & wine to go!
Salt Lick Cellars at the Austin airport was the best food I've ever had at an airport. The brisket and pulled pork were flavorful and tender. The plate included beans, a side of slaw, and potato salad. I'm not generally fans of those sides, but they were above average. $20 with tip, well worth it. There's also a decent wine and beer selection.
I usually stop here on my business trips- I’ve tried a few things. My vote goes to the chopped brisket sandwich. It’s stellar. Everything else I’ve tried is kind of hard to cut with a plastic fork/knife combo. I just had the ribs. Consider something else unless you really want to gnaw on a bone while in an airport. Had the sliced brisket in the past. I’m still taking a tour of the menu however can’t wait until I finish that and get back to the chopped brisket. I bought the bbq sauce to take home as a gift and then saw it in a grocery store at home. I enjoyed it nonetheless.
A Good BBQ place for airport. Not bad at all. I visited the main Austin restaurant back in 2002. That was my first experience with Texas BBQ. Still remember it vividly. What a great experience it was.
My favorite barbecue in the area. I make a point of visiting every time I am in Austin. My personal favorite is the brisket. But I recommend coming with a group and getting some of everything.
