Austin-Bergstrom International Airport's The Salt Lick is included on a list of top airport restaurants.

Austin has made yet another “best of” list. This time, it’s Austin-Bergstrom International Airport that’s getting the accolades — or more precisely, the ABIA outpost of The Salt Lick.

That’s right — the website Food Republic ranks The Salt Lick at ABIA as Number Four on its list of “The World’s Best Airport Restaurants.”

The website says:

Texas barbecue doesn’t get much better than Salt Lick BBQ and an outpost of the preternaturally popular 800-seat restaurant in Driftwood is located in the West Terminal (but fills the entire airport with the bewitching scent of brisket). Try a sloppy, but satisfying, pulled pork sandwich topped with slaw and Original Recipe barbecue sauce for a taste of Hill Country on the tarmac.

Other airport restaurants that made the list:

1. Hong Kong International—Tian Xia Dumplings

2. Los Angeles International—Encounter

3. London Heathrow—Plane Food

4. Austin-Bergstrom International—The Salt Lick

5. John F. Kennedy International—Piquillo

6. Amsterdam-Schipol—Bubbles

ABIA is touting the honor via Twitter:
