When you’re thinking of getting OAK airport food it can be hard to make a choice. They have a lot of options from burgers to ice cream. If you are going to be in the airport and have some extra cash to spend, you can get a good meal for an okay price.
Airport food usually is going to be of high quality because of the price and the fact that they want to impress you. Otherwise, they would likely go out of business fast because word travels fast when something is no good in a busy place like an airport. If something is new there then you may not be happy but usually anything that has been featured in the food court of the airport for a long while are solid choices.
Seek out some reviews on the various places to eat. Even though you may know what some chain restaurants are like in other cities, it doesn’t matter unless you find a review of the one in the airport. You want a current overview of what someone’s experience was like in case new employees are rude or the food changed in recent months. Sometimes you’ll find out that a restaurant changed for the better, and at other times it may be that things are no good and should be avoided until they change up the staff at a later time.
Be aware of the laws regarding getting on the plane if you are intoxicated if you’re drinking at any of the places in the airport. You can taste wine or buy bottles of it, but that doesn’t mean you should go party while you wait. If you’re clearly unable to control yourself, they generally are not going to let you on the flight and you could get arrested if you act out too much. Wait until you are where you’re going and if you want something to calm your nerves don’t take it way too far or you will regret it.
Don’t forget that you can get souvenirs and other items if you have the money. Most purchases you can make in OAK are actually overpriced but it can still be helpful if you are in a hurry or see something you just have to have. If you forgot to bring a book or you see something that you can bring someone because you forgot to go shopping it can really be a lifesaver. If you want to make sure you’re shopping at a good place then you can always check your phone if you have WiFi in the airport to check reviews.
It’s never going to be the best deal to eat OAK airport food. They know that you probably don’t have a ton of time and can’t really leave to go wherever you can save the most money. But, it’s a lot better to fly or to start your visit to the area with a full stomach so it may be worth it.
