Come Fly With Me, Come Dine With Me
Airports are great places to sit in close confines with hundreds of strangers and pretend like they don’t exist. But it’s marginally better when you’ve got something to eat, because that gives you something to look at.
But we’re not talking about a bag of Doritos and a $4 bottle of water — this is the real deal. CNN writer Beth Kaufman put together a list of the best eats at the 20 busiest airports in the states, and would you look at that, DFW is sitting pretty right there at No. 4.
So, according to Kaufman, the best place to grab a bite at DFW is … Cereality. Actually, she picks two places. But let’s talk about Cereality first.
Want to put Reese's Puffs and Fruit Loops in a bowl and top it with crushed Oreo cookies and peaches? Dream it, you little dreamer.
I had never heard of the “Chipotle of cereal places,” as Kaufman describes it. But apparently Cereality offers 14 types of cold cereals with 23 toppings ranging from dried cranberries to chocolate syrup with the ability to just go nuts mixing and matching it all up at Gate C6.
Want to put Reese's Puffs and Fruit Loops in a bowl and top it with crushed Oreo cookies and peaches? Dream it, you little dreamer. Cereality is anarchy. Or you can order off the Our Way menu if you have forgotten what it was like to have an imagination.
Also, there are two locations; the second is in the Chippenham Hospital in Richmond, Virginia.
Of course, the second restaurant she recommends is a barbecue joint because it’s a “more obvious Texas choice.” Kaufman picks Cousin’s Bar-B-Q, specifically at terminals B and C, because the family-owned restaurant “offers locations outside the airport and has 30 years experience cooking ribs and sausages.”
We’ve also never had Cousin’s, but barbecue czar and Texas Monthly’s new barbecue editor, Daniel Vaughn, has had the chopped beef sandwich. In his opinion, it’s the best barbecue option in the airport, which is good news if you’re craving some smoked meat before you board.
It should be also noted that according to the airport’s site and the restaurant’s, Cousin’s doesn’t have a location in the Terminal C, as Kaufman said. It is in both B and D.
Although, we have to be honest, if you’re going to be in Terminal D, you ought to eat at III Forks or Cantina Laredo, because you should really digest first-class food only when sitting in first class.
