Where to eat at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport has long been a champion of locally owned business and the spirit of Keeping Austin Weird. A slew of very Austin-y businesses are coming to the airport next year (from JuiceLand to Tacodeli). In the meantime, there are more than a dozen spots to fill you up before you take off or if you land in the capital city completely ravenous or thirsty.

Gate 5

Saxon Pub: A whiff of that old South Austin vibe along with burgers and beer.

Between Gate 6 and 7

Second Bar + Kitchen: One of Austin’s leaders in upmarket New American. And a craft cocktail before a flight is never a bad idea.

Gate 7

Auntie Anne’s: Carb delights.

Gate 8

The following currently all closed for renovations that will bring a whole new group of Austin-based dining options. (Hoover’s Cooking, Hill’s café, Nuevo Leon, Wok & Roll)

Gate 10

Ray Benson’s Roadhouse: Load up with burgers, hot dogs and a pulled pork sandwich at this comfort spot that features live music.

Austin Java & JuiceLand: Coffee to-go and a refrigerated case of cold-pressed juices from Austin’s number one name in juice.

Salt Lick Taco Bar: Brisket tacos. That’s pretty Austin.

Gate 12

Amy’s Ice Creams: Fill your orbs of ice cream with a variety of crush-ins.

The Salt Lick Bar-B-Que: Get covered in sticky barbecue sauce from the Hill Country legend.

Maudie’s Tex-Mex: Nachos before take-off? Or, even better, nachos during take-off?

Schlotzsky’s Deli & Cinnabon:  Lunch meats and sweet cinnamon rolls? A match made in airport heaven.

Gate 13

Vino Volo: Pinkies out and glasses up at this wine bar.

Gate 15

Austin Java Coffee: Nobody wants to fall asleep on the person next to them on the plane.

Earl Campbell’s Sports Bar: Sports bars and sausage wraps courtesy of The Tyler Rose.

Gate 18

Annie’s Café & Bar: Probably your healthiest bet at the airport, from salads to sandwiches and a variety of prepared foods.

Gate 19

Ruta Maya Café: Organic coffee and pastries from an Austin original

ThunderCloud Subs: Get the Office Favorite (egg salad with bacon) at this Austin institution.

Gate 20

Ivini’s Italian: Pizza, pasta and wine. Like an Italian sidewalk café but in the airport.
