Lunch at Midway airport

The wife and I will be stopping there for 2.5 hours at lunchtime in a week and a half. A search of this board yields a good thread over 2 years old, and plenty of newer ones for the airport area (we won't be leaving the airport). So how about an update? Open to any cuisine, any pricerange. Recommendations?

  1. Potbelly's is a Chicago-based chain that features toasted-style subs. Their sandwiches are very good and reasonably priced.

    1. Some ideas:

      Manny's - Concourse A - pretty good corned beef.
      Miller's Pub - Concourse B - Pretty good pub fare
      Pegasus on the Fly - Main Food Court - good, fresh salads, fruit bowls, Greek food and yogurt.
      Harry Carey's - more upscale - steaks and pork chops, etc.

      Foodwise, if I had to be stuck in an airport for three hours MDW would be my first choice and O'Hare near the bottom.

      1. ...and don't forget Superdawg in Concourse B! Doesn't have the atmosphere of the original, but great hot dogs, burgers, fries shakes.

        1. Hey, they aren't the best in the world, but personally I like the fish tacos at Lalos right after security. Fish is fried to order usually, and actually not bad. Also, good mexican beer selection if you need to loosen up before the flight.
