· Not the Typical Tacos in Austin
When at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, it’s hard to resist having dessert first, but if you can manage, there are some great options available in the terminal. One of the best is local institution Salt Lick Bar-B-Que within the West Food Court. It’s got all the options that make Texas barbecue famous, including plenty of brisket and smoked sausage, and they even give you a big piece of bread to sop up all the extra sauce. There’s also an outpost of the restaurant right after security that sells tacos too, but they are stuffed with barbecue brisket and pork rather than whatever stuff Taco Bell uses.
· An American Classic in the Nation’s Capital
Those on the West Coast are lucky enough to have In-N-Out Burger, but us on the other side of the nifty fifty got an equally delicious burger option a few years ago. Five Guys Burgers and Fries has been invading strip malls with their huge burgers and crazy portions of fries, and the burger place has made it to both Washington Dulles International Airport and Reagan National Airport. Burgers are available at two locations in Dulles near gates B71 and A3, and those greasy paper bags can be found within the North Pier at National. Just a tip: order the little cheeseburger—the regular burger is actually a double and way too much for a pre-flight meal.
· A Taste of the South in Atlanta
If you’ve ever spent anytime in the South it’s likely that you’ve come to experience the deliciousness and friendliness that is Chick-fil-A. It’s standard fast-food fare outside of the airport, complete with drive-thru windows, but it’s all chicken and no beef. For those that have never had the classic fried chicken sandwich with pickles and nothing else, you’re in for a treat (and don't forget a side of waffle fries). Our only warning is that the employees are usually crazy friendly, but we can’t guarantee that at the airport location. Help out the cows and “eat more chikin” next time you’re near gate A11 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
· More than Just Meat In Memphis
Many cities claim that their barbecue is the best, but Memphis might just be telling the truth when they make that claim. Sure there are plenty of options outside of the airport, but if you’re stuck with a connection and an empty belly, there’s no better place to turn than Interstate Bar-B-Que within the Concourse B Rotunda at Memphis International Airport. Ribs, brisket, and pork shoulder are just some of the smoky saucy treats available to enjoy. Make sure you have a decent layover before digging in, because this is a place best enjoyed at a table within the terminal rather than a tray table within the plane.
