When I am in an airport, food is a blast of protein and caffeine to get me through my trip to where I'm going. That's it. I usually travel alone and it is not a social experience. I want to stay functional and get where I'm going. I do not want to pay a lot of money. I am only interested in your local food / brewery if I am not going to overpay for it. Lunch total should not cost more than $6, dinner not more than $12, maybe $15. If I get a bottle of water and candy bar the total cost needs to be under $5. I do not care how grand the airport you are building is. That is not my problem.Jim
LAS by far of the airports I have been to is the most outrageous on price. A Wendy's sausage biscuit that was $.99 at SEA was $2.99 at LAS.
I always tell people to avoid flying thru LAS if they plan on eating on the fly, yet I always seem to end ip in LAS then , lol. Even yesterday is an example of that.

Walk to the In and Out, or Ralphs grocery store with several other options in that shopping center area all on Sepulveda Bl to eat. I would not suggest doing it for a short layover although.

The flying public wants better food options. But you are correct, they should still keep a Mickey Ds for the people that want a fast food, cheap, quick option.

LAX is ridiculous. The best bargains are the domestic airline lounges - Alaska and American have pretty good menus that can fill you up for less than $10.
