Samuel Adams Toasts

(No website found at time of publishing) – ATL, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport


How I heard of this place: My husband has a knack for finding the sit-down restaurants at airports, so rather than making our way to a food court, we often enjoy the pleasures of restaurant dining in terminal space.

Type of cuisine: American Pub Grub.

Sam Adams Menu

Ambiance: A long, rectangular space with booth seating, a square-shaped bar to the far right and tiled floor connects the take-away deli to the bistro that is Sam Adams.

What I ordered: Chris and I were returning from a two-week sojourn in Central America and, as part of our five-hour layover (no meals served on either of our two connecting flights), we came across Sam Adams, where we would reintroduce ourselves to greasy, American food. Chris, craving a burger once we set foot on U.S. soil, chose the Bistro Bacon Cheeseburger ($9.39), 1/3-pound of ground beef, grilled, topped with one strip of thick-sliced (maybe in ATL?) bacon and pepper jack cheese, served with fries.


I wanted something smaller, and figured I could sample the burger if I shared my Chili Cheese Fries ($5.99) with tangy chili and cheese sauce.

Chili Fries

What I loved: Squiqly fries drenched in chili. Yum.

Why I loved it: Though it has taken some getting-used-to, I am finding it more and more of a pleasure to escape the sights and sounds of gate seating to enjoy a mini respit in a restaurant environment at airports, thanks to my hubby. The friendly service and larger portions are a bonus.

Cost: Average ($7 – $10 per sandwich/burger)
