Best Airport Food?

I realize that “best airport food” is kind of an oxymoron.

But, the next time you find yourself stranded in an airport or waiting during a layover, you might appreciate the findings in these reports which highlight the best locations for airport dining.

Most of the reports contain an annual summary of what the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) found at the busiest U.S. airports, which are ranked from best to worst, in terms of food choices.

For the record, airports that are consistently at the top of the list are:

  • Dallas-Fort Worth
  • Chicago
  • Detroit
  • San Francisco

I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
