Las Vegas Airport Food: Navigating Your Options at the Harry Reid International Airport

Las Vegas Airport Food: Navigating Your Options at the Harry Reid International Airport

The Harry Reid International Airport, formerly known as the McCarran International Airport, is one of the busiest airports in the United States, with more than 50 million passengers passing through every year.

In fact, only six airports saw more passengers than the LAS airport in 2022. 

And, according to J.D. Power, only two airports rank higher in terms of satisfaction.

That study by J.D. Power ranks airports based on terminal facilities, airport arrival/departure, baggage claim, security check, check-in/baggage check, and food/beverage/retail. Sin City scored a 787 out of 1,000 – which ranked third in the US, behind Minneapolis-Saint Paul (796) and Detroit Metro (800).

If you plan on being one of the 50+ million people passing through the Las Vegas airport this year, then you’re likely wondering what types of food and beverage options you’ll have while you wait to board. 

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!

Sit-Down Restaurant & Fine Dining at Harry Reid

Alright, so there aren’t a lot of actual sit-down restaurants or fine dining experiences at the airport, but a lot of Las Vegas’ most popular restaurants have ‘to-go style’ locations – and that’s honestly all you need!

Here are some of the best restaurants at Harry Reid: 

  • Moe’s Southwest Grill – Concourse A A15
  • Baja Fresh Express – Concourse D Lobby
  • Rachel’s Kitchen – Concourse D D6
  • Ruby’s Diner – Concourse D Lobby 
  • Great Steak – Concourse B B25
  • Pei Wei Asian Diner – Concourse C C19
  • Wolfgang Puck Express – Concourse D D17
  • Chili’s – Concourse D D35

If it’s a full meal you’re after – something to fill you up before or after your flight – then you’ll find what you’re looking for at one of these restaurants. It might be a little expensive, but that’s normal for airports. 

Bar Food, Alcohol, & Signature Drinks at LAS

Having a hard time finding your husband? You can probably find him at one of the many bars located in the Las Vegas airport. Believe it or not, these are usually some of the busiest places in the entire airport.

The good news is you have plenty of options to choose from:

  • Las Vegas Chophouse – Concourse E E9
  • Village Pub – Concourse E E14
  • PGA Tour Grill – Concourse E E3 & B B17

Aside from the beer, cocktails, and shots, you’ll find some of the best bar food in these parts. Burgers, nachos, chicken tenders, french fries, wings – there’s no better way to start or end your Vegas trip.

Pizza & Sandwiches Inside the LAS Airport

Don’t worry – we weren’t going to forget about the pizza, and we certainly weren’t going to forget about the sandwiches. Whether you need a slice for the whole family or a footlong sub for yourself, we got you!

  • Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza – Concourse D D6

  • California Pizza Kitchen – Concourse D Lobby 

California Pizza Kitchen is the only one of these that has seating – in fact, it also has a bar. That’s what makes it one of the hottest spots in the airport – it has a little bit of everything, so everyone’s satisfied.

Fast Food Options at Harry Reid International

Let’s be honest – it wouldn’t be an airport if it wasn’t packed with fast food options, and Harry Reid certainly has that covered. If you’re feeling guilty, just remember you’re on vacation – you deserve a treat!

If you’re after a quick bite to eat, here are your options: 

  • Burger King – four locations
  • Shake Shack – Terminal 1 Rotunda
  • Cinnabon – Concourse D Lobby
  • The Great American Bagel & Bakery – Concourse C C16 & D Lobby
  • Wendy’s – Main Terminal Level 2 & Concourse C C23
  • Auntie Anne’s – Concourse C C16 & D Lobby
  • Einstein Bros. Bagels – near gate B

A lot of these vendors are located in the post-security food court, but you’ll find some of them before security – meaning you can get that quick bite to eat before making your way through TSA.

Coffee, Juice, & Smoothies Inside the LAS Airport

Did you know Americans drink more than 400 million cups of coffee every single day? If you’re ever wondering why there are so many coffee joints in airports, that’s your reason – most of us need it!

Whether you want a cup of joe or a glass of juice, here are your options: 

  • Coffee Bean Tea Leaf – Concourse E E11 & C C4
  • Jamba Juice – Concourse D Lobby
  • Starbucks Coffee – 12 locations

Here’s a fun little statistic – Harry Reid is home to 12 Starbucks locations, which is the second-most inside an airport in the US. The Chicago O’Hare International Airport has the most with 14 locations!

Grab-and-Go Options Are Everywhere!

When you’re in a rush (which most of us are when in an airport), then you don’t have time to sit in a line and order food. Don’t worry, there are several vendors that offer snacks, drinks, and a self-cashout lane.

Here are three of your best options: 

  • Fresh Attractions – five locations
  • Fresh Market On-the-Go – Concourse C C23 & C C21
  • Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen – Concourse C C23

These types of vendors are located throughout the airport and are usually conveniently located by the gates. You can also stop at a vending machine for a quick snack or beverage – they’re everywhere!
