Beecher's Handmade Cheese - Seattle Tacoma International Airport SEA

I may very well be mistaken but I believe it was a mother daughter team working behind the counter and the mother daughter team, especially the mother provided the most welcoming and warming service I've received at an airport eatery. It led me to wonder if she were the owner.

Greek Souvlaki - Salt Lake City International Airport SLC

I had limited layover time and was concerned when I met a long lunch line upon arrival but the line moved very rapidly. The cashiers were exceptionally efficient and so was the supervisor or manager calling out the orders.

Anthony's Restaurant and Fish Bar - Seattle Tacoma International Airport SEA

Anthony's occupies a large chunk of real estate and it seemed just about every table was taken, both in the dine-in Restaurant as well as in the Fish Bar area.

Tourists aren't going out their way to stop in this neck of northeast Portland. It seems almost 100% locals who know a good thing including a healthy percentage Hispanic customers.

Nong's Khao Man Gai - Portland, OR

Nong's Khao Man Gai gets rave reviews.

Chik-fil-A - Philadelphia International Airport PHL

I have the utmost admiration for S Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A.  He stood by what he believed in despite political correctness and the presence of the thought police lurking in every shadow and corner.

Five Guys - Madison, WI

It's a good thing that I've been to another Five Guys previously because if this Five Guys was the first one, it would have been the first and last time I would have stepped into a Five Guys.

Kenny and Zuke's Delicatessen - Portland, OR

Great tasting pastrami with the perfect texture and checkerboard fat marbling is difficult to find and so after reading the many accolades bestowed on Kenny and Zuke's, it became another must eat destination.

French Meadow Bakery & Cafe Main Mall - Minneapolis St Paul International Airport MSP

Although I've been to the French Meadow in Concourse F, this was my first stop to the French Meadow in the Mall. In the Mall, there is a section where you pick up your food cafeteria as well as a sit down section.

I had been wanting to stop in at Ox for over a year and it finally came to pass. Was it worth the wait? Yes! It exceeded my expectations.
