Atlanta International Airport, CenterpointOverview: Can’t decide between sushi and a sandwich? Come here and have both, paired with creative cocktails to wash it all down! The sushi rolls are fantastic; the pork belly entree receives high praise from those less fish inclined. With a fancy atmosphere and great ambiance, you’ll forget you are in an airport.
What the flyers are saying: “Proper respect for cocktails.” “Not many eateries are worth buying a plane ticket to get to, but this is one of them.”
Best tip: Despite the Atlanta airport being paid Wi-Fi, the bonus of One Flew South is that it has its own free Wi-Fi!
Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, The MallOverview: Breakfast, lunch or dinner, the great American menu here is sure to please. A classy joint in a convenient location away from the airport turmoil with décor that will make you forget you are in the airport. The burgers receive the most praise.
What the flyers are saying: “Have to try the vanilla milkshake … just like Grandpa used to make!!”
Best tip: Not the cheapest of joints but you won’t be disappointed.
Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Gate B8Overview: You don’t have to stand in long lines in downtown Chicago to get the classis taste of Garrett’s -- yes, the “famous one that even Oprah talks about.” However, one traveler said, “I don’t buy it because of Oprah, I buy it because it’s good.” Local and global favorite: the Chicago mix.

Best tip: If you are still on the fence, “ask for a sample, they will give you a small cup of the cheese and caramel to help make your decision.”
