Austin-Bergstrom International Airport has now made it easier for hungry travelers to avoid lines with the introduction of Grab, a new mobile restaurant ordering app. Currently, 11 restaurants found in the terminal are participating, including The Salt Lick, Hoover’s Cooking, and Saxon Pub. Users will be able to browse through the offerings, find out how long waits for food are, and place orders through the app. Then they can go pick up their meals from designated spots within the terminal. Certain dishes and non-alcoholic beverages are available from each establishment.

The only other U.S. airport with the same ordering capabilities is Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International. Users can also look through other airports’ restaurants and bars, including Chicago Midway and O’Hare, Dallas Love Field and Fort Worth, Houston Hobby, Los Angeles International, LaGuardia, JFK, and more.

Another big change for the airport is Second Bar + Kitchen’s expansion into the international terminal sometime next year from La Corsha Hospitality Group.
