Hilarious and Genuine Foursquare Reviews of the World's Best* Airport Restaurants

By Paul Brady, Condé Nast Traveler

Could the world's most popular airport restaurant be a southern-and-sushi joint in the world's busiest hub? New data from Foursquare reveals some impressive taste among the flying public that too often has to settle for pre-made and flavorless fare. Topping the list is One Flew South, at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where users rave about the "best airport food."

*While the ratings of millions of Foursquare users can't claim to be a scientific and comprehensive survey of the flying public's taste--hence the asterisk in that headline--the data does show adventuresome appetites in most airports. As for the popularity of the Burger King in Beijing, one user wonders, "Is it really this good, or have I been in China for too long?"

Foursquare says: "If you have an hour or more layover, One Flew South is worth the trek to Terminal E."
