Memphis International Selected Top 5
for Fancy Fast Food
Jaunted, a website associated with Condé Nast Traveler magazine, has named Memphis International as one of the top airport locations for filling up on fancy fast food.
Specifically, it is Memphis Bar-B-Que that captured the taste buds of the writer.
The travel blog article stated:
“More than Just Meat In Memphis
Many cities claim that their barbecue is the best, but Memphis might just be telling the truth when they make that claim. Sure there are plenty of options outside of the airport, but if you’re stuck with a connection and an empty belly, there’s no better place to turn than Interstate Bar-B-Que within the Concourse B Rotunda at Memphis International Airport. Ribs, brisket, and pork shoulder are just some of the smoky saucy treats available to enjoy. Make sure you have a decent layover before digging in, because this is a place best enjoyed at a table within the terminal rather than a tray table within the plane.”
This isn’t the first time the food and retail offerings at Memphis International Airport have been singled out for their quality and variety. Among the most prestigious designations to date was a Griesbach Award of Excellence in 2006 from the Airports Council International for top-notch food and beverage concessions and specialty shops. In fact, the entire food and retail offering in the airport is designed around highlighting the best of Memphis. Other local favorites among 29 food concessions include Back Yard Burgers, Lenny’s Sub Shop, Corky’s, and Grisanti’s Bol A Pasta.
Joining Memphis in the Jaunted rating were food offerings from Los Angeles International Airport, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Washington Dulles and Reagan airports, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
