If you must eat at the airport then it will depend on your budget and taste. I like Italian deli so Granatos is the place I eat when I can't get a bite before leaving home.

Airport eateries are seldom very exciting.

Since you must eat early to make your flight, if you luggage is manageable, why not have dinner around 3:00 or 4:00 in town? You'll find more choices of real food. Downtown S.L. is near the airport, unlike San Francisco, so you don't need to worry a lot about heavy traffic or weather delays.

The Gateway is the closest place with a big variety, both food courts and stand-alone restaurants.


Much of inner downtown is under construction and restaurants can be hard to find, but several are operated under the auspices of Temple Square. This is farther away than Gateway, but both areas are well within a short cab ride of the airport.


(Temple Square dining is LDS Church-owned, not open Sundays and no coffee, tea, or alcohol).

There are also several downtown hotels (Marriott, Radisson, Plaza, etc.) that have restaurants.

You may need to call ahead for a cab; they sometimes cruise the streets but not as much as in some other cities.

There's a Wasatch Pub in the airport that has pretty good food and another Boston or NY deli that has decent salads. Each terminal has at least one place to get sandwiches or salads on their concourse. You will see them. If you do have time- to eat somewhere before you go...the Red Iguana is one mile from the airport if you like Mexican.
