With a little research and the help of Eater’s Airport Dining Guides, you can get a better idea of what’s available without wandering all over the airport, wasting precious time.
Currently, Eater has guides to tell you where to eat at lots of airports in the US as well as at a few in Canada and Europe.
Since I last wrote about Eater’s Airport Dining Guides, my list of favorite food at airports hasn’t really changed. (However, one of my favorite burger joints has opened at another NYC airport.)
Here are some of my favorite airport food options:
- New York JFK: Shake Shack at T4
- New York LGA: Shake Shack in Terminal B
- Atlanta- ATL: Chic-fil-A
- Chicago- O’Hare: Tortas Frontera
- Chicago- Midway: Manny’s Express (Deli) and Potbelly Sandwich Shop
- Newark- EWR: Custom Burgers
- CUN: Pizza at The Marketplace by Wolfgang Puck (I also had it at a US airport but I forgot which one)
- LGW: The Grain Store Cafe & Bar (Priority Pass Lounge)
When I arrive at an airport, if I’m in need of some food and don’t have lounge access, I google Eater and the name of the airport to see if a dining guide exists. If it does, you can usually skim over the guide (by terminal) to see what’s around.
Many of the guides were updated less than two weeks back. This is really helpful since we’re not relying on old information.
