Long layover at Fort Lauderdale airport, anything chow worthy?
We have a 4 hr layover on our way to Treasure Cay Saturday, any suggestions? Would rather not leave the secure area, unless we have to. Flying on Continental.

I tried one of those Chef Allen sandwiches in Terminal 3 (JetBlue) last week. They sound much better then then look and taste.
If you have 4 hours and it's not a peak security line time, then I'd venture out of the airport and check out either Anthony's Runway 84 or Anthony's Coal Fire Pizza.
If you are interested in cabbing out and back through security, you could consider Jaxson's Ice Cream, just a few miles from the airport. No "fancy" food, but decent burgers with sweet potato fries and the best ice cream in South Florida.
The ice cream selections are HUGE so plan to share. Everything is made in house: ice cream, toppings, etc.

Ended up eating at Chili's on both legs of the trip. The stuff at Chef Allen's did not look good. Chili's was not good either. Had the sliders, overcooked, dry, crappy buns. Wife ordered buffalo chicken, blah. Had an app sampler on the way back, not good either. I feel bad for anyone that has to travel through there regularly.
