    Arrive early and enjoy a meal/drinks @ Chelsea's Kitchen in Terminal 4. It's located BEFORE security checkpoint so your family & friends can join! Great food, chill vibe, and handsome bartenders.

    Best food in all terminals... Paradise Bakery! Don't forget to ask for a spoon or a fork if you need one as they don't offer it up. Finding out you need one on the plane isn't pleasant!

    Must Visit: The Grand Canyon. One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is worth a visit for the breathtaking panoramic vistas and river rafting opportunities it offers.

    Awesome airport, very clean and easy to get in and out. The car rental is no longer attached to the terminal but is located in another building in the airport. Takes over an hour to rent a car.

    Very nice airport, went to a great Mexican restaurant while waiting for a flight back to FL. Nice places to shop and if you need a ride to get to your gate they have these free cool cart drivers.

    Delighted to see TSA treat one of our soldiers with kindness and respect. Remember "guys" if you are in uniform and have your ID you can leave your boots on (as long as not steal toed).

    Got an hour to kill? Stretch your legs with a wander around the rectangle of terminals. Infinite walkways! Wacky carpet! Note it's not a full loop. You can only cross n/s from b to c at the east end.

    You won't find any beverages other than water at the newsstand/news shops. Best place to find Coke/Diet Coke is at the CPK kiosk where there is not usually a line (like you will find at Pizza Hut et a

    Paradise Bakery is worth any walk. Great sandwiches, salads, soups, as well as wonderful baked goods and coffee. There's one outside security at terminal 4 and past security by the C gates.

    Go to Blanco Taco+Tequila in Terminal 4! Probably the best meal I've ever had in an airport. Had the braised short rib & avocado cheese crisps & the white peach & hibiscus margarita. Delicious!

    Upstairs at T4 by the Sky Train is not a bad place to wait especially if you have time before a flight from another terminal like the sucky-ass T2. Plugs, comfy seating, and food!

    The chopped salad at Cowboy Ciao in Terminal A is delicious and relatively healthy especially if you leave off the dressing which it doesn't really need. Worth the walk from Terminal C.

    I like this port for the Wi-fi and Mexican food. Don't like the rental car distance so much. Get a seat. And men, give up your seat to a woman if it's crowded. Chivalry is always appreciated.

    Because it's usually 100+ degrees outside, they blast the AC inside the airport, making it feel like the North Pole, so bring a sweater if you're stopping here. There's also free wifi and charge ports

    Besides the Airport Museum, there's a lot of public art here! Check out the Paul Coze mural in T-2, stained glass in T-3, and a dichromatic glass install at the Rental Car Center.

    When picking up, use the cell phone lot and tell your passenger to tell you exactly which door to go to... preferably a clear area. Saves time and you won't be "that guy" jamming up curbside pick-up!!

    If you're running late I suggest you do skycap at the outside curb it's so much faster to avoid late check-ins. It may be a bit hot waiting during summer months but it's worth the hassle!

    Try the Barfly restaurant. Local food served fast by friendly people. I had the fish and chips with a local ale and was surprised by how good it was. Not your typical airport food.

    The Paradise Bakery & Cafe right across from Southwest gate C14 turned out to be a great lunch stop. The Paradise Club sandwich was excellent and the service is outstanding.

    Not sure if their tag line of best airport food in America is accurate.. But you will definitely burn some calories walking the endless stretch of concourse between, and even within, terminals.

    Terminal 2 has a nice sitting area with a book store, Starbucks, and restaurant before you have to hit security. If you have a long layover and are meeting with someone, do it there.

    This city is a jumping off point for historic Route 66, which opened in 1926 as a scenic route that connected Chicago to LA. Stop in Winslow, a town made famous by the Eagles song “Take it Easy.”

    Who's brilliant decision was it to approve a coffee bar named "Cartel"? As a Colombian, this is insulting. As a consumer, dumb - if you just google the word see how they botched this branding move..

    The esplanade above the ticket counter has a lot of shops and restaurants. Limited selection of food after security, my advice is to arrive early if you plan on eating and eat before security.

    Wendy's in terminal 3 between gate 18-19 doesn't serve hamburgers till after 10am. $9.00 steak & egg burrito across the way is the best bet for breakfast.

    La Grande Orange (I think that's the name of the restaurant) has excellent food but a terrible setup. Ordering and getting your food can be confusing but it's worth the hassle. Music's good too!

    Always opt out of the scanner. They have nice gentle hands here with a sensual touch. Private screening room has scented candles. I finish 3 out of 4 times.

    Terminal four is where all the cool kids go. If you're going to buy a $12 drink or a $15 salad, do it here. Excellent restaurants, unfortunate prices.

    Be prepared to hunt for an available outlet if you need to work or charge a phone or laptop. And if you think about looking around other concourses, you're in for a hike! Be prepared.

    You don't need to go to your terminal if you have your tickets already. Just go through security at the first place you see on the correct side and take the moving walkways on the opposite side.

    La Grande Orange near the D gates has good coffee and breakfast food. I'm not a vegetarian - their Zuni Burrito (has tofu in it) is really good.

    Don't miss a real Italian espresso at Cartel Coffee Shop, in the C gate area. To have the true Italian experience pay for a single shot but ask to stop at 'half'.

    Eat at Sauce. The food is delicious, fast, the service is excellent and the atmosphere rocks. It doesn't feel like an airport restaurant.
