Food trucks are heading to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport as part of its new terminal. The South Terminal will feature an outdoor patio looking out at the airplane runway with two rotating food trucks. The trucks will operate during scheduled flights, which range from 10:30 a.m. to 9:21 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

The first two food trucks parked at the South Terminal are Stacked Sliders and Mellizoz Tacos on Thursday, followed by Stacked Sliders again and Stony Crust Pizza on Friday. Others are planned for the rest of the month. The space features covered awnings and tables.

The retro terminal debuts off Burleson Road on Thursday, April 13, servicing flights from Allegiant Airlines and Texas Sky Airlines. It is completely separate from the airport’s main hub, Barbara Jordan Terminal. Travelers can get there by car and shuttle.

A similar idea with food trucks is being floated around for Chicago’s two major airports.

The Barbara Jordan Terminal is undergoing its own renovations and expansions, too, including the larger Salt Lick BBQ and a branch of Second Bar + Kitchen.
