O'hare Airport Dining

I will be flying through Chicago O'Hare's airport. Are there any good eating places in the airport?

  1. My go-to place in the airport is Wolfgang Puck's, for their salads, sandwiches, etc. Terminals 1 and 3.

    I've heard they recently opened Tortas Frontera, a fast-food outpost of Rick Bayless's empire, in Terminal 1, with another to open soon in Terminal 3, but I haven't been there yet.

    Also don't miss Garrett's Popcorn, in Terminals 1 and 3. They have caramel popcorn (with or without cashews or pecans), cheese popcorn, or the "Chicago mix" of the two. They make it fresh in the airport store, so it's just like their stores downtown but without the long lines.

    1. Good suggestions but I would add the Berghoff Cafe if you fancy a hand carved sandwich. Also, there is a soul food place (B.J.'s market?) near the Wolfgang Puck that looked interesting.

      1. Frontera in Terminal 3 is awesome. They do tortas, molletes, and salads , super fresh, and served wroth a smile (rare at airports, I find).

          As is the Frontera in Temrinal 1 - I especially love their green chile soup - In between Terminal 1 and 2 you also have a Sushi bar that has decent sushi -

          Also here is another recent discussion on this topic -
