Phoenix Sky Harbor Restaurants: A Field Guide to Airport Dining


We've all been there: It's 6 p.m., and your flight boards in 20 minutes. You raced straight to the airport from work, and now you're starving. You passed some decent options on your way to security but decided not to stop, hoping your prospects would look better on the other side. Now you're in line for fast food feeling quite full of regret despite your empty stomach.
