Three New Airport Restaurants for Your Next Three-Hour Layover

August 1, 2012 at 9:40 AM | by | ()

New airport restaurant announcements might not be as frequent as new route news, but with so many dining locations coming and going we figured it was a good idea to mention some of the latest options to hit the concourses and terminals.

· Up first this week is Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, as the smoked this and sauced that is scheduled to arrive at Terminal C within in Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Hopefully this will give those arriving into the nifty fifty—or heading out—a true taste of Texas barbeque. Obviously there’s probably more authentic options outside of the airport, but we can’t complain about having the option to pick up a bottle of sauce or rub on the way to our gate. For now you don’t have to wait, as there’s already three of the restaurants at DFW—they’re near gates A18, C6, and E12.

· Next, we had over to Pittsburgh, as some real deal bagels are now doing their thing at Pittsburgh International Airport. Bruegger's Bagels is now open within Concourse B, as they try their best to load you up with sandwiches, soups, salads—and of course bagels. This is the very first location for the chain at PIT, but it’s airport location number five overall across the country. Early morning flights are certainly going to be a little bit better, considering now that an everything bagel with cream cheese will be available at 5am.

· The final airport opening this week comes to us from Houston’s Hobby Airport, as they’re in the middle of upgrading plenty of their shops and restaurants. One of the latest—and newest—additions includes Pappas Bar-B-Q. It opened earlier this month, and it is the airport’s first true, full-service restaurant. There will be plenty of meats to be had here both served on plates and on sandwiches, but there’s also stuff for earlier in the day—like breakfast tacos. They promise plenty of to-go options, a full bar, and of course access to WiFi.

We’ll keep our eyes—and noses—on the lookout for the sights and smells of new airport restaurants. In the interim, feel free to drop a line in the comments below to share your review of any new airport dining spots.
