For this ultimate guide: food edition, we’re going back to the basics… Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is no stranger to good food and foodie fame. That’s because it’s had years to build its reputation as being a well-known, “local first” airport. We’ve upped the ante of airport food by opting out of the golden arches and fast pandas, and opting in to places like Haymaker, Thurman’s, Salt Lick BBQ, Juiceland and Sushi-A-Go-Go.

For the sake of this guide, we’re keeping our recommendations short and simple for the hungry wanderer. For a full list of our restaurant options and hours of operation,

In the heart of Texas and heart of AUS (the Asleep at the Wheel stage, naturally), an unforgettable celebration took place as Delaware North, one of our food and retail partners, joined forces with Garrison Brothers Distillery, the trailblazing pioneers of Texas whiskey, to celebrate a good ‘ol fashioned partnership right at the Saxon Pub.

Earlier this month, passengers were treated to an exclusive experience at the Saxon Pub, where they had the chance meet and speak with none other than Texas whiskey craftsmen themselves: Dan and Charlie Garrison of The Garrison Bros. The occasion marked the official launch of The Garrison Bros Barrel Age…

Our city is famous for live music, shopping on SoCo, bbq, population booms, and an eco-conscious culture that reaches across the city, all the way down past 71 and 183, right to the curbside Departures Level. That’s right, even an airport can reflect a city’s appreciation for and efforts to support a more sustainable Austin.

AUS airport operations are carbon neutral! Again! AUS sustained a Level 3+ Carbon Neutral accreditation for 2022 airport operations, the airport's busiest year to date
