I have seen many threads with some info for certain airports..but not one thread for all.
So what is your favorite food at a certain airports? Must be on airport grounds and accessible via walking or shuttle.
I will start it off....
IAH - Papadeaux, Terminal E , they have a great lunch buffet if you are into cajun food.
ATL - Charlies Subs (i think thats what its called), Terminal C, Great Chicken Teriyaki sandwich.
IAD - Potbelly's, Terminal B & C, Cheap but good food. 3.99 + tax for a good size sandwich.
Help someone out who is on a long layover
Enjoying the view of KIAH approach end of 27. 29.9758015, -95.2695694

And an excellent bisque!
SLC - Squatter's Pub East side of Concourse C between C5/C7 (location of the first Horizon Club Western had in SLC). Quiznos down in the E gates, or on the A Concourse, between A2/A4. Yeah I know, but its QUIZNOS!..

LAX (Various terminals), as well as PHX and some other airports: CPK (California Pizza Kitchen), The BBQ Chicken Pizza is the bomb, even if it is a little overpirced (CPK is even better at non- airport locations becuaes you get more for about hte same amount of money). Wolfgang Puck Expres is good too.
BTW in the international terminal all decent food (basically everything that is not a hotdog) is sold outside of security, they odn't have anything I really like [though I haven'ty had their daily grill but I've been to a few others and they are awesome], just a little warning for anyone travelling through the international temrinal.
Also even though this is at many airports, I find that I always end up going to Sbarro when at PHL.
AT BDL The new terminal has rather bad food in the main food court area (McDonalds, a McDonalds run pizza chain (I've only seen it at the airport and in a few McDonalds branded turnpike rest stops). However there is very good pizza in the terminal US Air uses (can't remember terminal letters or names).
Cinnabon is awlays good too, at least for desert or breakfast, as is Auntie Annies or Wetzels for a quick snack.
At JFK, in the terminal Jetblue uses there is a sportsbar, I recommend avoiding it, the service was horrible and the food wasn't that great.
The 3 best planes of all time: Shorts Skyvan, 330 and 360

In my opinion, the best food at virtually all airports is none, unless you're really desperate. Even when the quality is acceptable, which is rarely the case in my experience, it's usually overpriced since a sizable portion of revenues of food service and other retail outlets in airports goes to the airport operator. And the atmosphere and surroundings of most airport restaurants usually leaves much to be desired.

Basically I agree anbd in Europe and Asia there is no need to ear at the airport before a flight, unless you go on an LCC flight or in a really bad Y class.
In the US however, where decent airline food on board is non-existant in all classes (travelling domestic) , it makes sense to eat at an airport restaurant. It becomes real bad, when they have only McD's and similar available. In that case, save your appetite and live on the substrance. Better even when you'r stuck on B6 for the next 8 hours.

At TPA, Flatbreadz in Airside F..great lunch and breakfast sandwiches. The TGIF landside is the busiest in the chain.
If you have the time for a good meal, the revolving restaurant atop the Mariott--used to be called CK's..now, it's the View will fill the bill..and give a great view of TPA in the process.

It was a sad day when Borgs microbrew grill departed SEA airport altogether. However, the former location of Borgs, at the junction of the C & D concourses has been taken up by the Alaska Lodge, highly recommended for both its food and ambience that is mindful of a high quality rustic Alaska lodge.
