food at DCA; anything worth eating?
- Hungry Celeste
45 minute layover at DCA, right at dinnertime. Should I pack a sandwich, or is something beyond fast food, fried cheese, or cinnabons available in such a time frame? TIA.
Below is a link to a Adobe PDF with pre and post security food. Legal Seafood, while certainly no Acme or Casamento's, isn't bad at all, though I've never been at the airport one, only D.C.
Jerry's Sub's, a midsize D.C. chain has good subs and cheesesteaks.
Suggest getting Legal Seafood's clam chowder to go, and simply eating it on the plane. It's pretty decent, and is vastly better than anything you'll get on the plane.
Pack a lunch. Inside the terminals, the food choices are limited and not special. With only a 45 minute layover, you won't have time to go outside the terminals. (National often has very long waits through security.)
