If You're Not Looking for a Side of Roaches, Avoid These Miami Airport Restaurants

Have you had the chance to check out the latest and greatest in airport reality shows—"Airport 24/7: Miami?" The program on Travel Channel details the ins and outs of airport security, the boarding process, check in, and pretty much everything else through a behind-the-scenes look at the terminals and its employees. One thing they haven’t dug into too much are the airport restaurants, and that's a good thing given the recent news out of MIA.

If you’ve just cracked open your lunch box you might want to put that PB&J aside for a moment, as the following is far from tasty. Two restaurants at Miami International Airport were recently shut down as there were apparently quite a number of creepy crawlies where it should have only been nummy yummies.

Island Chicken Grill over in Concourse J and Famous Famiglia Pizza in the South Terminal Food Court were shut down on October 3. Both live and dead cockroaches were discovered there, and that’s certainly not a good thing, especially considering the close quarters that airport kitchens already endure.

It sounds like the problem—or problems—have been resolved, and that the vendors are now open for business once again. We’ll let you decide if it’s worth ordering up a slice of pizza or some jerk chicken on your next trip through the airport, but we might just wait a little bit longer. That’s just us.
