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 full of regret despite your empty stomach.

Many of us will make a trip through Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport at some point. It's about time we were all prepared to navigate the airport's ever-growing number of dining options — especially Terminal 4's.

Here's a handy and, above all, quick guide to Sky Harbor dining, arranged by terminal and proximity to airport gates.
