    Chezz Burger Chezz Burger between gates 5 & 6 is a "hidden" gem. The prices are reasonable & the portions are large. But most importantly, its good. Here is a Turkey Burger, no onions. $5.99.

    SO much better than LAX! Smaller yet less crowded. Get to your gate faster. When flying Southwest they usually don't weigh bags when checking in. SO worth the extra $ to avoid the headache of LAX!

    One of the best 'big' airports! Generally no lines at the counters, and security is a breeze. Very friendly TSA agents, heads above others. No scanners are a pleasure, without sacrificing security.

    Love this little airport that could. Lines if they exist are short (especially since there is now TSA Precheck for those of you that have it). So enjoy a meal at The Lunch Box. It's not helLAX.

  • Rod B.

    Still uses the "Air Stairs" and not the "Jet Ways" ... but nice small airport easy and quick to get in and out of. If you are going to the San Fernando valley area, best to use BUR and not LAX.

    Bring your own 5 hour energy or red bull if that's what you live on- they don't have it here! Easy to get in and out of as far as airports. Great alternative to LAX in my humble opinion.

    Very small airport. I almost forgot I was near Los ANgeles while in the airport, but it was pretty decent. No great food restaurants to choose from so make sure you eat before you get here.

    Kenneth Ware Jr. · April 15, 2013
  • Ay K.

    Expert security lane awesome but 9 times out of 10 it's full of people who have no concept of TSA req'mts (e.g. Belts, liquids, laptops, shoes) so delay usually results. Overall, still faster than LAX

    Love this airport! Short lines and never over-crowded. Planes board old school style from staircases, which is a hassle for luggage but great for quick boarding from both the front and back.

    Mitzi Yue · May 18, 2011
  • Baum

    Park in the structure instead of valet. It's $30/day but it's covered and you can get in and out quicker if you prepay your ticket at the terminal. Odd how it costs more than LAX.

    Baum · August 5, 2011
  • Damon J.

    Avoid the lines! If flying Southwest with two or less bags go Right past southwest ticket counter towards the gate and there are two small kiosks which you can get your boarding pass from.

  • Valerie Angela

    My favorite LA airport. Love being able to exit the plane from the back & you're right outside, old-school style. But if you fly in from NY, you have the longest walk to baggage claim/exit.

    Valerie Angela · October 21, 2013
  • Tracy N.

    If you're on Southwest, planes board from front and back stairs. Take the back set, walk through the plane to the front. Beats waiting for folks trying to pick a seat and blocking the aisles.

    Tracy Ng · June 21, 2012
  • Brian R.

    Leave extra time for security. In the last two weeks, my bags have been searched for such dangerous looking items as books, magazines and business cards. The security staff is way over-cautious.

  • AT&T

    While you’re waiting for your flight, you can stay connected with AT&T Wi-Fi. It’s easy to connect and free for AT&T customers w/ certain smartphone or home broadband plans.

    The valet is $20 a day, worth it if you don't want to deal with the shuttles. They'll also wash your car and have it ready for you when you land, for $27 more.

    Archer Bravo Aviation · December 24, 2010
  • Zara P.

    If you have any early morning flight, security doesn't open until 5:30am. You can use any kiosk to check in, they have all of the airline carriers on every kiosk.

    Zara Park · November 22, 2013
  • Danny N.

    Smaller airport uses front & rear ramps, fewer baggage carousels, but major bottleneck at pick-up/drop-off. Definitely route here if handy for more streamlined trip

    Danny Norton · November 8, 2013
  • Tony D.

    Don't pay at the charging stations. There are outlets at A5 (high up on the wall, so tricky to find). And outlets under the pay phones. Happy device charging!

    Tony DeCastro · April 6, 2013
  • Mashable

    You can get in and out of LA through this smaller airport, and you can also get some stuff done while you're there on the complementary free wi-fi!

    Mashable · September 15, 2011
  • AD N.

    BUR is for fast in-n-out, not hanging out. If you're expecting to be waylaid or get laid over, use LAX. BUR also more convenient for most northside & eastside LA destinations. NB: few charging outlets

    AD Nys · May 23, 2010
  • Curt R.

    Since this place is primarily business travelers a lot of times the "expert" security lane has more people in it than the regular lane. Scope it out before you pull the trigger.

    Curt Rollison · January 6, 2011
  • Sean R.

    To take the free shuttle to North Hollywood Red/Orange Line, go to the Shuttles & Hotel island and tell the Super Shuttle agent you're going to North Hollywood Metro station.

    Sean Rouse · March 30, 2012
  • Francisco M.

    A very convenient "relief" for LAX. Great for domestic flights. If flying international you might have to make an extra stop and it might cost a few extra.

    Francisco Mayagoitia · August 19, 2012
  • Hemang

    Small airport with an old-school feel. Easier to access right off the 5 freeway and plenty of food nearby to enjoy while waiting for loved ones to arrive.

    Hemang · August 7, 2011
  • Brett W.

    If you're not checking anything, you can easily go from your car to your gate in less than 10 minutes. Eat beforehand though. Food is pretty uniformly bad.

    Brett WH · December 24, 2014
  • john W.

    Put your valet ticket number in your phone's address book under BUR Valet. When your return flight lands you can call ahead for your car while the plane is still taxiing.

    john Williams · July 9, 2009
  • Mark J.

    BUR is great, but keep in mind that there are no ATMs past security. If you want to spend money in the airport, but didn't bring any, get it before security.

    Mark Jacobson · October 17, 2012
  • Kristine B.

    10 minutes getting thru security. Full body scans. Didn't have to wait 20 extra min for them to pat down my man because of his hip replacements. If you have hardware inside ya always go for the scan

    Kristine Boender · September 17, 2012
  • Danny F.

    Smaller airport, but that's the best part! In and out real quick. And they don't use jetways, I felt so cool coming out the plane using the ol' fashion stairs.

    Danny Fung · December 9, 2011
  • Uttam P.

    No wall sockets to charge your devices in all of terminal A. Compare this with plug points in EACH seat in San Jose!! So 20th century!!

    Uttam Padukone · August 10, 2013
  • Brittany N.

    Between long beach airport and here you can't go wrong! Free wifi and when you walk onto the plane you feel like a rockstar! Open seating too! Breakfast burritos are like 15 dollars each though! :\

    Brittany Nicole · August 6, 2012
  • Matthew K.

    Bon Hope is the best airport to fly out of for short distance trips out of LA. There is a seasonal flight to NYC on JetBlue, also. Totally worth the extra money to skip the hassle!

    Matthew Kramer · August 6, 2014
  • Patricia F.

    Just like everything else in so Cal, people think they are experts when they are the bunny slope is often faster than the black diamond!

    Patricia Forman · June 18, 2012
  • Amanda D.

    Really great experience. When you go through security make sure you follow your carry on all the way through the X-ray machine or they will snap at you

    Amanda Drinkhouse · July 14, 2013
  • Jason D.

    Invest in TSA Pre ✅ for $85. You will speed through the security line in 5 minutes, get to leave your shoes on and your laptop in your bag.

    Jason Dukes · January 26, 2015
  • Valerie H.

    If you have a 7am flight security doesn't open until 615 so if its in dec around the holidays you will more than likely miss your flight because there are too many people here at once

    Valerie Humbard · December 15, 2011
  • Mandy P.

    Need your hair done? 20% off @ Frenchys Beauty Parlor 2403 W. Magnolia Blvd Burbank 818-845-7545 when you mention four square for the burbank airport. Ask for Mandy

    Free WiFi from ABC ... Make sure you select their SSID/network or else you'll only get prompts to pay.

    Dean Suhr · March 28, 2013
  • Lucky U.

    You may want to grab a bench and one of the many electrical outlets before security screening. Theyre are practically no outlets in the gate area.

    Lucky Uy · July 20, 2012
  • Jeremy H.

    The bar at terminal 6 is usually less crowded, and you can order ChezBurger from there without waiting in line (very good burgers!).

    Jeremy Hodges · April 29, 2011
  • Jason G.

    No need to arrive to early. Check in and security is a breeze. Make sure to wear slide on shoes for easy security scanning.

    Jason Gervais · December 27, 2014
  • Buttercup D.

    Let's be frank--this is an eyesore of an airport. Reminds me of what SJC used to be. C'mon, Burbank, revamp this baby! Much more convenient and easier to fly in/out than LAX, but just butt ugly.

    Buttercup D · April 1, 2010
  • Maddie J.

    Free wifi, Calm environment. Nice, just not many outlets by the seats, you may just be standing up by the charging station.

    Maddie Jay · July 22, 2013
  • Robby M.

    If you're hungry, you have Starbucks, McDondald's and Panda Express down the road. But if you're thirsty, you have Starbucks, McDondald's and Panda Express down the road.

    Robby Marshall · February 16, 2013
  • Angel H.

    Hardly any outlets to charge your device. Found a couple at gate A1 near kiosk. Small inconvenience compared to the alternative - LAX!

    Angel Hamane · March 13, 2013
  • Avneesh K.

    You can get off the plane from the front or the back, so sitting towards the back will definitely get you off the plane faster.

    Avneesh Kohli · November 9, 2012
  • Kelly V.

    The fastest airport in the world. From my front door to gate.. 30 minutes! Don't curb side check. It's a super short walk to the counter and you rarely have to wait.

    Kelly Vaughn · February 23, 2011
  • Cindy

    Right by Gate A3 is a great place to grab a salad to go. Build Your Own is the best deal in the place. NOMS!
