Have eaten here many times, always when changing planes. For the first time ever I flew direct out of ORD, and added in time to eat there again. If I could find an excuse to go back to Chicago or even just through ORD, I...More

The food here is probably more desirable than at most Terminal 5 airport eateries (maybe with the exception of Hub51) but I was stunned by the amount of salt they threw on it. Almost inedible.

My husband and I had a layover in Chicago O'Hare before a recent trip abroad. Due to some recommendations from friends (and seeing Chef Rick Bayless on TV whipping up some tasty Mexican food), we decided to stop by and give Tortas Frontera a try....More

Searching for breakfast a gluten free person could eat on a Chicago layover, I was so glad I stumbled on Fronteta. I got the egg and bacon cazuela bowl, which came with sweet potato, black beans, arugula, tortilla strips, jack and cotija cheese, fresh avocado...More

They have a great menu with allot of very healthy choices and decent prices for the airport. In the international terminal this is the best option I found. Sit down or get it to go, plenty of seating everywhere.

The short rib torta with black beans was wonderful along with the margarita. It might appear a little pricey but you get very good portions. Good place to sit and get some food and drink or grab a bite to go.

Definitely, the food here is a delicious departure from the generally bad dining available at an airport. The tortas are pretty good, as is the guac/chips. The challenge is saying goodbye to the $ in your wallet. We left full, but nearly $50 down for...More
