Whether you have extra time to kill at the airport, or you simply just need a bite to eat, there’s no reason to eat terrible food next time you’re at the Salt Lake City International Airport. With a brand new terminal and a great variety of dining options, welcome to our guide to the best Salt Lake City Airport food. Disclaimer: This guide will be continuously updated as the Salt Lake City Airport food scene changes with the new terminal.


5. Squatters Airport Pub: Concourse A

If you’ve enjoyed Squatters near downtown Salt Lake City for their drinks or food you’ll love this casual and fast stop at the Salt Lake City Airport. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Squatters serves menu favorites including house made soups, salads, and sandwiches. Squatters also usually has a basket of goodies near the register including rice krispy treats from Salt Lake City’s local Hatch Family Chocolates (aka the best rice krispy treat I have had in my life)!

4. Granato’s Gourmet Market: Terminal Plaza

3. Cafe Rio: Concourse A

Three reasons you need to check out Cafe Rio at the Salt Lake City Airport: 1) It’s unquestionably one of the faster options in the entire airport, 2) Cafe Rio is a Utah favorite (and a Utah original!) and serves some of the best fast casual food in the state, and 3) this is one of the few places you can enjoy Cafe Rio BREAKFAST! I often get to the airport a little early if I’m flying out in the morning just so I can enjoy a smothered breakfast burrito.

Picture the same great tortilla, meat, and beans that you love with potatoes and eggs. Served until 10:30 a.m. daily. They usually have fresh squeezed OJ too so why the heck not?

1. Market Street Grill: Terminal Plaza

Salt Lake City locals love Market Street Grill for being one of the first restaurants in the valley to fly in fresh seafood to our landlocked state daily. If you’re looking for the best overall dining experience in the Salt Lake City airport, Market Street Grill is definitely your best choice.

They serve a killer breakfast (and in my opinion is better than the breakfast served at their other SLC locations), and fantastic lunch/dinner.

Try the eggs benedict for breakfast/brunch with a side of their delicious Market Street Potatoes. For lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong with shrimp cocktail or clam chowder appetizer, paired with some of their fresh atlantic salmon or Maryland lump crab cakes!
