( – ATL, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

How I heard of this place: We walked by, it was close to our gate and we were hungry, knowing a long flight was ahead and no meals would be served.

Type of cuisine: American Grub. Everything from burgers and chicken wings to pasta, ribs, sandwhiches, salads, desserts and that’s just the tip of the iceburg.

Ambiance: The loud, neon-lit space, very reminiscent of a 1950s diner welcomes all weary travelers into its crowded ranks. Everything from black and white checkered wall print, to enlarged photographs of the Hollywood sign, and various signs from Las Vegas are colorfully collaged on the walls, from framed black and white photos of the “Ghostbusters” trio and Elvis Presley, to a motorized bike, pool balls in a triangle and one drum protruding from the walls. Brighly colored media prints of Marilyn Monroe, white bulbs connected to spell out the word KITCHEN, wood-paneled walls (where one can see them), and stars spangling the hanging ceiling lamps and the glass around our mini booth.

What I ordered: Chris and I decided to start with the Boneless Buffalo Wings ($11.43), topped with Classic Buffalo Sauce, served ith celery, ranch and Bleu cheese dressings.

Chris continued with the New Steakhouse Bleu Cheese Burger ($10.89), crumbled bleu cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, caramelized onions and garlic maison butter served over a grilled 100% USDA choice Black Angus beef patty, all contained within a hearty brioche bun, topped with fresh lettuce, pickles, onion and vine-ripened tomatoes.


We chose to share the California Club ($9.67), which included mesquite-smoked turkey breast, applewood-smoked bacon, ham and Monterey Jack cheese on toasted ciabatta bread with Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and mayo. Each of our meals came with a side of seasoned fries.

What I loved: Boneless Buffalo-flavored Chicken Wings. The seasoned fries were a very close second.

Why I loved it: While I am most accustomed to finding a quick grab-and-go snack at airports where I have a layover, Chris seems to know all of the best places to find a sit-down restaurant. When we travel together, there is almost no other option.

Cost: Average ($9.67 – $10.89 per burger/sandwich)
