Reader: Congratulations! Denver Has the Best Airport Food I've Had in the U.S.

Over the past few years, Denver International Airport has made a concerted effort to land local restaurateurs -- and yes, a couple of Dunkin' Donuts -- and the result has been a decided improvement for passengers looking for some quick grub or even a sit-down meal. Just in time for the holidays (and all those traffic snafus), we revisited our Ten Best Restaurants at Denver International Airport. And our top pick, Root Down, is so good that one reader says he's welcomed delays just so he can dine there. See also: Ten Best Restaurants at Denver International Airport

Says David:

I sheepishly still must admit, I've actually been happy to have flight delays just to have time for a Root Down meal at DIA.

Another David has praise for the entire DIA lineup:

Hands down, the best airport food I've had in the U.S. Congratulations!

But there's a Scrooge in every holiday crowd. Comments Kevin:

Only thing i buy at DIA is coffee and that's even over-priced.

What do you think of the food at DIA? Where do you eat? Where do you recommend your visitors go if they're stuck waiting for ffights?
