Ready to explore the best Atlanta airport restaurants? Let’s go grab a bite and make that layover the tastiest part of your trip!

1. One Flew South

Their OFS Dirty South sandwich is a must-try

If you’re in Concourse E, make a pit stop at One Flew South. Known for its Southern cuisine with an Asian twist, this spot sets the bar high for airport dining. Got a craving for some comfort food? Get your hands on the OFS Dirty South. It’s a meatloaf sandwich, piled with pimento cheese, sautéed kale, and crispy bacon. Top that off with a BBQ sauce and a fried egg – it’s Southern hospitality on a plate!

And hey, don’t skip their signature cocktails. Arrival Thyme and Golden Ticket are our favorites.

2. Phillips Seafood

We love their Shrimp & Grits

Strolling through Concourse D? Do yourself a flavor favor and swing by Phillips Seafood. We recommend their Shrimp & Grits – a Southern classic with a twist. Imagine blackened shrimp on top of creamy Red Mule organic grits, all melded together with rich gouda cheese, crab meat, and a touch of smoky bacon. Trust us, you won’t forget them once you’ve tried them!

3. Ecco

Try their European-inspired Flatbreads

For those in Concourse F, Ecco adds a dash of European flair to the mix at Atlanta airport restaurants. The flatbreads, with their crispy, thin crust and gourmet toppings, are a highlight. Go for the Prosciutto flatbread – it’s crispy, cheesy, and it’s loaded with goodness. Pair it with a glass of fine wine from their extensive selection for a classy pre-flight meal. Cheers to your travels!

4. Paschal’s

Don’t skip their famous Fried Chicken

Paschal’s (in Concourse B) is where Southern hospitality meets soul food. Their Fried Chicken is the real MVP of the menu – crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. It’s a comforting dish that reminds us of home-cooked meals.

While their fried chicken is a classic, the grilled Lamb Chops with a teriyaki glaze are a true standout. Served with your choice of two Southern sides and a corn muffin, this dish captures the essence of Southern cooking.

5. SweetWater Last Call Bar & Grill

Enjoy their local drafts

For beer enthusiasts, SweetWater Last Call Bar & Grill in Concourse B is a must-visit. As one of Atlanta’s premier craft breweries, they offer a range of one-of-a-kind beers. Try their airport-exclusive brews – they’re refreshing and unique.

Is your belly rumbly? Get your hands on their Beef Barbacoa Tacos. It’s like a flavor fiesta in your mouth – we’re talking tender beef barbacoa tucked into a warm tortilla, complemented by a tangy Latin slaw, crumbled Cotija cheese, and pickled onions. Top it all off with fresh cilantro, and boom – you’ve got yourself a pre-flight party on a plate.
