If you are a frequent traveler and are looking for special food at various airports, here are seven suggestions for genuinely delicious cuisine.
- The Salt Lick BBQ
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport: Food Court, Gate 12
You'll find world-famous authentic Texas food such as smokehouse barbecue turkey, signature beef brisket, pork ribs, sausage, and a huge stuffed potato.
- Amy’s Ice Creams
Austin-Bergstrom Airport: Food Court
Grab dessert in the form of an innovative homemade ice cream cone from a wall of unique flavors. Choose from Oreo Crush, Mexican Vanilla, Reese's Crush, Sweet Cream, Sweet Leaf Original, and lots of other endless customized mix-ins.
- Five Guys
Washington-Dulles International Airport: Concourse A and B
Featuring made-to-order high-quality beef hamburgers and cheeseburgers served with copious amounts of fresh-cut French fries or a Cajun style Idaho potato is the specialty. Add on as many toppings as you want from a choice of barbecue sauce, onions, jalapenos, hot sauce, mushrooms, and more. President Obama orders his cheeseburger with tomato, lettuce, jalapenos, and mustard.
- Shapiro’s Delicatessen
Indianapolis Airport: Gate B14
Named “the best Jewish deli in the Midwest," the sandwiches are phenomenal. Well-recommended is the Reuben served on hand-sliced fresh rye bread.
- Ivar’s Seafood Bar
Memphis Airport, Tennessee: Gate B4
Although a local fast-food seafood chain, it is top quality. There is usually a lengthy line waiting especially for the huge portions of fish and chips, yummy smoked salmon and other chowders and crispy crab cakes.
- Chef Jimmy’s Bistro
Denver International Airport: Concourse Center
Included in over 40 options are Chicken Marsala and a Marinated Skirt Steak with basil, tomato, and a balsamic glaze. If you prefer, you can get a simple burger or a panini. A plus is that it is the only place open in the entire airport that serves alcohol past 9:30 p.m., which means something for those taking the red-eye.
- One Flew Over
Atlanta International Airport: Food Court
This trendy dining establishment serves cocktails and excellent entrees such as a delectable sushi roll and a pork belly concoction.
