Central Texas barbecue icons Salt Lick will team with locally based app service Favor to offer delivery to Austin residents on Saturday. The service, which coincides with the first University of Texas home football game of the season, will be available to those living within Favor’s delivery area (see map). This is the first time Salt Lick has ever offered same-day delivery of its barbecue.
Favor will offer delivery of all Salt Lick’s signature menu items from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday. Favor says they expect deliveries to arrive “usually within 35 minutes” of placing an order, which customers can do on the Favor app (download here). All orders have a $5 delivery fee, plus five percent of the cost of items, and a tip to the runner. Favor FAQs here.
How will Favor and Salt Lick be able to come even close to the 35-minute window within which it usually operates?
“The Salt Lick has rented out a space kitchen space in downtown Austin to help with all of the driving,” a rep for Salt Lick said. “I don’t think Favor can necessarily guarantee a 35-minute delivery, but with the nearby downtown space, I think this delivery time is much more doable.”
