Of course this iconic airport spot made the list. This is where you go for drinks between flights to celebrate, or to enjoy mix-and-match fajitas at completely inappropriate times. Going to this airport Chili’s is less of a decision as it is a necessary tradition.

Vin Room

Not only is Vin Room the place to go for globally inspired tapas and an extensive wine menu, but it’s also the best place to go if you’re travelling with your dog. Whatever you get, if you bring your pooch, they’ll be treated to a complimentary three-course menu.

Yakima Social Kitchen + Bar

The best part about this wine bar isn’t just the large selection of wines from across the world, or casual fine dining eats like¬†smoked salmon rolls and a brie and prosciutto sandwiches. The best part might be that they also package them to go if you’d rather enjoy it on your flight.

The Burger Federation

Nothing cures the airport blues like a great burger, and this isn’t your average joint. Standard cheeseburgers, as well as creative burgers inspired by cuisine all over the world, are found on the menu here. There are also plenty of salads, appetizers, and sides to keep things interesting.
