Traveling Through Austin's Airport? Salt Lick BBQ Is Expanding

Headed out of Austin through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport? It'll soon be a lot easier to enjoy a taste of Texas before you leave -- or as soon as you disembark -- with the coming expansion of the Salt Lick restaurant.

As KXAN reports, the renowned barbecue restaurant will more than double the size of its location inside Austin-Bergstrom Airport with a new location opposite its existing space, between Gates 12 and 13.

An opening date hasn't yet been announced, but the existing airport location will remain open until construction is complete.

According to the airport, the new location will feature bar, table and communal seating options, along with rails for sauces and much-needed power outlets at each seat.
