Out With Sbarro and In With 'Dinosaur BBQ' at Syracuse Airport
You might not have Syracuse, New York on your travel radar—especially since it’s no longer an AYCJ option—but if you’re headed through town anytime soon be sure to keep a look out for some new airport dining options.
In a major victory for fans of airport restaurants everywhere, officials at the Syracuse Hancock International Airport have decided to remove two Sbarro locations in favor of more local options. In total the airport is looking to spend around $400,000 over the next couple of months to update things, but you won’t go hungry as some temporary kiosks will be set up to supply chips and M&Ms.
The new Gateway Grill and Wine Bar will serve up local favorites including Hoffman hot dogs, Gianelli sausages, and of course plenty of options from Dinosaur BBQ. There are plans for both Terminal A and B, with the Terminal A location being updated into a post-security dining option after all the renovations. This might not make any best-of lists when it comes to airport dining, but anytime we can score some delicious barbecue—especially after security—we’re not complaining.
