I was at their site and there are a million places to eat. My parents will be stuck there for a few hours next week. Which place is the best? They will be on their way to their anniversary getaway and want to eat a nice meal. I don't think that there is a gourmet resteraunt but if there is someplace nice they can spend an hour and a half, it would be nice for them. Please let me know where in ATL.
Thanks,
SR

My favs:

Outside Security:
Atrium: Paschal's (Southern food)

Inside Security:
Terminal A (upstairs): Chili's can sometimes offer a quiet booth or table
Terminal B: TGI-Friday's usually is packed, but good food.
Terminal T: Hartsfield's Bistro. Lots of good deli/bistro fare, but not too much privacy.

Mandarin Express in "B" is the best. The one in "E" isn't as good.

It sounds like they want more of a restaurant than "food court" fare.

Outside security I would go with Houlihan's.
Inside security, I would go with Chili's.

I think Concourse B has the better fast food restaurants as well as Chilis. The Atrium has good restaurants but I found them expensive. Not much more than vending machines are open past 10pm! I found that out recently after my flight from MEM was delayed 4 hours.

Houlihan's in the Atrium is a nice place to sit and hang out for a bit if you don't mind re-clearing SUCKurity. If you want something quicker, try Atlanta Bread Co.

On E, there's a wealth of fast food places. Grab some greasy grub and camp out in front of the windows at the end of the concourse and watch the action.

I made a mistake once of eating Popeye's Fried Chicken (better than Paschal's) and mashed potatoes before a transatlantic flight....thus warranting a couple trips to the loo later on. Stick with healthier foods before a flight, for the sake of your fellow travelers.

I go with 767Lover.

Outside of secuirity, there is Houlihan's, but since they will most likely be inside security, Chili's upstairs in Concourse A. Chilis is great because they serve a whole menu, you can get a quiet booth if you want, or sit by the windows and get a great view of airport ops. On an even better note, they know that most have quick connections and don't have time to wait, so they are super quick. I get food there faster than I do at a normal Chili's. And the waitresses seem to have a little more Southern hospitality than most of the airport food workers there. If they want food court food, I would recommend Atlanta Bread Company on C Concourse, although there is regularly a line.

It looks to me that ATL doesn't have some of the higher-end dining that other airports do. Wolfgang Puck has a spot in Terminal 3 at ORD. From what a friend of mine who flies for AA tells me, a number of pilots and F/As that commute (i.e., fly) to work get in early, just so that they can have a meal there.

My wife wishes that ATL had a Chick-fil-a, but they are closed on Sundays, so I don't think the airport authority would want a store than only generates revenue 6 days a week.

There actually is at least one, on Concourse A (near A9?)

There isn't a Popeye's on D. There's two Burger Kings, two Starbucks, a Cinnabon, a Nathan's, a Chili's, and an Au Bon Pain.

I used to eat at one on E at least once a week when I used to work out there for my former employer, to me it was about the same as the one on B (which I used to eat at once a week when my assigned route was B concourse) Man I miss that Mango Chicken.....


My recommendations:

Atlanta Bread Company (there's one on C and one outside of security)
Charley's Steakery (one on B and one on C)
Paschal's (already been mentioned outside of security, but there is also one on A)
Chik-Fil-A on A (that is if it's not Sunday)

Depending on the time of Day, the E terminal (international) is often not particularly busy. At 11:45 am on sunday I went to a place called "Images Bistro" in terminal E. There were only two other people there. It was relatively quiet and there were about 5 large TV's tuned into ESPN. I paid $12 for a nice chicken pannini with fries and slaw with tax and tip included.

The Menu included Burgers, other sandwiches, burgers, and a few southern plate-lunch style meals.

This place was reasonably nice, but if busy, is probably similar to the other sit down places there.

Hullahans and/or Atlanta Bread company in the atrium is 24 hours I think!

I think he meant C

I would say not to go with food court food except Paschals (an Atlanta tradition) and Chick Fil A. Those never fail, they serve good southern food, and if the flight is late and there is a tight connection, its quick and easy. (although Paschals is in the Atrium, outside security)...if there is time, Chilis and TGI Fridays, again, never fail to be good meals.

Paschals is one of the best bets. There are three located at the airport, 1 in the atrium, 1 in A, and 1 in C. Virtually every concourse has a bar and grill which has a limited (usually sandwiches/salads) menu and are fairly comfortable.
