When flying in, out, or through Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport (LAS), you will be confronted with a myriad of food amp; beverage options. To help you narrow down these options, I have broken them down based on location, cost, and service time. The following is your food amp; beverage guide to the A, B, C, amp; D gates.
It has become a favorite hangout spot for all the locals in the vicinity and they don’t care how expensive the food will cost at airports as they only want their money’s worth. You just need to look up the numerous Seattle Airport cancellations that have taken place due to the ruckus being cost by such people and spoiling departure plans.
A amp; B gates (Southwest, US Airways, Virgin America, amp; Westjet).
Burger King, located just past security, at the split between the A amp; B gates,is perfect if you are on a budget and pressed for time. A Whopper without cheese goes for $4 and a really large shake runs about $3.
Chili’s, located just past security on the immediate right, is also good when on a budget as long as you stick to their large bag of chips and salsa for $3. Otherwise, save this option for when you have time, a little more money, and/or want to grab an alcoholic beverage or game on TV.
Flatbreadz, located next to Chilli’s, offers a fairly healthy menu and is similar to a deli, offering fresh sandwiches, soups, and desserts. Sandwiches run about $8.
360 Burrito, located by B15, offers generous portions of tasty burritos that run about $10. I recommend this over Moe’s, located by A15, which has a similar menu but is not as generous or as tasty.
Freshens Smoothie Company, located by A12 amp; also by B9, offers a variety of milkshakes, health-shakes, and juices. Although they are fairly big, they can be costly at an average cost of $5.50.
C gates (Southwest).
Burger King, located between C9 amp; C18, is perfect if you are on a budget and pressed for time. A Whopper without cheese goes for $4 and a really large shake runs about $3.
Sbarro’s, located next to BK, is another good option when considering cost amp; time as a large slice of pizza runs about $4. If you are willing to spend more, I recommend the Chicken amp; Baked Ziti as it is an extremely generous portion and is quite good. Cost is about $9.
Blue Burrito Grille, located around the corner from Burger King by C9, has a good selection of burritos with unique flavors.
Jose Cuervo Tequileria, located just before Sbarro’s by C18 is perfect for grabbing a drink and watching some TV.
D gates (AirTran, Alaska, Allegiant, American, Continental, Delta/Northwest, Frontier, JetBlue, Spirit, amp; United).
Burger King, located by D5 amp; by D41, is perfect if you are on a budget and pressed for time. A Whopper without cheese goes for $4 and a really large shake runs about $3.
Chili’s, located by D18, is also good when on a budget as long as you stick to their large bag of chips and salsa for $3. They only have a walk-up counter at this location so don’t expect sit down service.
Port of Subs, located by D5, and Quizno’s, located by D41, both provide fairly healthy options that aren’t too expensive but are filling. Expect to spend about $8 for a sub.
Ruby’s, located at the top of the escalators toward D1, is a classic diner with simple food amp; great malts amp; shakes. The menu is fairly expensive as you can expect to spend $10 for a sandwich and $6 for a malt/shake.
California Pizza Kitchen, located at the top of the escalators toward D34, and Wolfgang Puck, located by D18, are two other good options providing sit-down service with quality food. Both also offer alcoholic beverages and TV’s.
Juice Express, located at the top of the escalators across from Ruby’s, is perfect for grabbing a freshly squeezed health-shake. Expect to spend between $4-5 each.
