Football fans, or more specifically Dallas Cowboys fans, have a new favorite watering hole to call home when to or through Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport.
The latest addition to DFW's dining scene is the Dallas Cowboys Club, a full service restaurant now serving sports lovers in Terminal A.
The space, outfitted with plenty of football fan flourishes, has room for 80 hungry and thirsty fans — plus, of course, plenty of television screens to catch the game. The restaurant features a stadium shaped bar, and when it comes to food expect plenty of Texas-inspired grub: regional specialties, a little Tex-Mex, and of course plenty of wine, beer, and cocktails. How 'bout them Cowboys?!

Good news! We've found the perfect dinner spot for Jaunted readers who happen to find themselves passing through Arkansas' Walnut Ridge Regional Airport (ARG). Local affiliate KATV has introduced us to the Parachute Inn Restaurant, a restaurant that is contained within a retired Boeing 737
Well, half of it, anyway. Part of the restaurant is housed within a fairly standard building, but it's the plane half — added to the structure in 2001 — that makes this such a unique roadside attraction. This airplane used to fly the friendly skies under the Southwest Airline call sign. Now it's just the place to get some fantastic fried catfish while sitting in old airplane seats and feasting your eyes upon everything from the overhead bins to the original cockpit. And yes, the kiddos — including the simply young at heart — are welcome to take a seat at the controls.
Take a tour in the video below. And then, if you're able, fly on by. KATV - Breaking News, Weather and Razorback Sports

When you're hungry at the airport, having to wait in line at Sbarro or Starbucks is a drag. Your airport time is valuable; you have things to do, commitments to keep, loops of CNN to watch and the latest issue of US Weekly to read. Thankfully one company values your worth, and they’re helping you out with an airport meal-based ordering app, now live in San Francisco and Boston.
Travelers going through SFO and BOS are the first to have access to AirGrub, an app that lets you enter your flight info, browse menus from restaurants within your terminal, place an order, schedule when you want to pick it up, and — with the quick flash of a boarding pass once you clear security — cut the line to grab your meal to eat in the airport or take on the plane.
So far the the folks behind the app have made dining mates with spots like Perry’s in SFO's Terminal 1, Napa Farms Market in Terminal 2, and Yankee Pier in Terminal 3. But with Boston just added and New York on the horizon, we're sure in due time you'll be scheduling caramel macchiato pick-ups from coast to caffeinated coast.

Your layover in DC just got better, as some new dining options area headed to the airports that serve America's capital. (Yes, we bring you this exciting news just in time for July Fourth. Cue the fireworks!)
The good news comes via Eater, which reports that later this year two DC-serving airports will say "bon appétit" to some new options. In the heart of the city Reagan National airport's Terminal B/C will score some fast casual Thai and Chinese courtesy of Big Bowl, plus Georgetown Gourmet Market, which will serve salads, soups, and sammies will all do their thing at Terminal C.
Meanwhile, Dulles International airport (just over the Virginia border) will add a Five Guys and Subway location to take care of your chain burgers-and-subs cravings. However, if you’re looking for something a little substantial, ubiquitous celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck will be welcoming his 10,000th restaurant — that's our latest estimate — called The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck.
Flight delayed? At least now you'll have some more spots to feed.

Memorial Day might be over, but we should still make a point to stop and remember — and thank — our brave military men and women. And thanks to the folks behind Hudson Group, American airports are places where uniformed service members will continue to find some tokens of gratitude.
According to USA Today, Hudson-operated airport retailers will offer free small coffees to American and Canadian military members through July Fourth. The weeks-long giveaway applies to more than 50 cafes, shops, and kiosks in terminals and concourses across the country, including spots like Dunkin’ Donuts, Aeromart and Euro Café, among others.
Fans of The Chew, Cleveland, or just celebrity chefs in general need to plan a little extra time in their travels, as there’s a new restaurant doing its thing at Washington-Dulles that might just be worthy of a layover.
Michael Symon and associates recently cut the ribbon on Bar Symon, and it is now open for business within Terminal D near Gate 16. We have not had a chance to enjoy a little airport dining as of yet, but it sounds like travelers can expect sandwiches, burgers, and other goodies—complete with both Greek and Italian influences.
Nobody likes long layovers or flights delays. But if you’re hungry and have some time to kill, there are far worse places to get stuck than Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Even if you’re one of those super organized people that arrives at the airport with plenty of time to spare (WHO ARE YOU?!), it’s a mighty fine place to be.
Here, passengers can eat like a Seattleite at several locally-owned and operated establishments. Ready to nosh? Here are our favorite picks:
Beecher’s Handmade Cheese
Where to find it: Concourse C
Don’t miss: Try Beecher’s famous “World’s Best” Mac & Cheese – it was one of Oprah’s ‘Favorite Things’ in 2010.

Just the other week we told you where to get beer, bourbon and barbecue when visiting Forth Worth. But should you overindulge in all that BBB goodness, you'll be happy to know that the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will help you get back on your diet with their new, "Healthy + Happy" promotion. (Side note: Uh, should Walgreens be concerned here about this name?)
Airport officials have worked with restaurants in and around the terminals, and as a result each and every one of DFW’s more than 150 restaurants now features at least one low-cal, low-fat, or some other low-this or free-of-that menu selection. Think stuff like oatmeal bowls with fresh fruit, roasted corn and lime tacos, veggie wraps, and plenty of egg whites for those breakfast sandwiches.
Believe it or not, but as of a few weeks ago there were absolutely no Jack in the Box locations within airports. We say "as of a few weeks ago," because the first has just barely opened, and you'll find it at San Diego International Airport.
Head to SAN's Terminal 1 to order a Jumbo Jack, but it's not a problem if you’re arriving or departing from Terminal 2 East. That terminal gets a location as well, as the fast food chain focuses on some of the best sellers and essentials at the airport—as in don’t expect the full menu.

The holiday travel season is in full swing, and that means the uncertainty of a layover, an inconvenience, or just some generalized airport anxiety. That’s where alcohol comes into the picture! We’re kidding of course, but a nice glass of wine at the airport never seems to make things worse.
Better than a dingy airport bar is a classy and clean wine bar, and you can’t get much better than Vino Volo. It also certainly doesn’t hurt that they have plenty of locations at airports around the globe, and that they offer up free WiFi along with some light bites to eat. So whether it’s a chardonnay or some merlot to go – here’s where to find each and every airport location of Vino Volo:

Wander through an average US airport and you'll notice the options for a pre-flight nosh are usually disappointing. Fast food before sitting on a plane for hours? Even if your tastebuds say yes, your body will later have you regretting that decision.
Just last week, Baltimore Washington International Airport was named the top pick for healthy airport food. The award wasn't just bestowed by a group of frequent flyers, but backed by the brains behind the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine who annually rank the airports with the healthiest options.
An incredible 92% of BWI's food concessions have at least one healthy option on their menus.

Travelers love to gripe; it's part of the de-stressing regiment when it comes to traveling in a flying tin can, shoulder-to-shoulder with strangers. After all, there's so much to complain about, from security theater to bathroom hygiene, to crying babies before 6am flights. Still, one area in which airports have been considerably improving is the food court. It's not just Sbarro and Cinnabon any longer, and frowns are turning upside-down.
Our friends at the many Eater sites have cleverly rated and recommended eateries via their Airport Dining Guides for the major US (and 1 Canadian) airports, so you don't miss out on great BBQ or a better cup of coffee just because it's not next to your gate.
These guides, first introduced earlier this year, were just updated before Thanksgiving with the harried and hungry traveler in mind. We recommend bookmarking your favorite airport now, before you're flying home for the holidays with a grumble in your stomach:
