Expensive price tags, unhealthy options, and far-from-fresh meals can really put a damper on any traveler’s time at the airport. Unfortunately, it’s typically par for the course, as airport food often falls short in the quality category. Don’t be discouraged, though; there are some airports committed to changing the status quo of subpar airport cuisine. From grab-n-go meals to sit-down spots, certain hubs are better than others.
For our list, we looked at the 2017 Airport Dining Scorecard, a survey conducted by travel site, RewardExpert. They ranked the 20 most trafficked airports in the country according to price, satisfaction, and quality. So, without further ado, we’re counting down to the No. 1 best airport for high-quality, cheap food.
Newark’s airport is hardly known as the epicenter of finer things. And when it comes to food, fine dining at a good price is no exception. It’s hard to find, and the service isn’t exactly top tier. Aside from endless security lines and that just-off-the-side-of-the-highway factory smell, it’s best to avoid Newark when possible. Newark comes in at half a star in satisfaction and a one-crown rating for quality, and yet, it’s still some of the highest priced airport food around.
