Burger Fi 24

I’ve always thought the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport could do much better as far as restaurant options go.  Well, that dull restaurant selection is about to be upgraded.  It’s being reported that the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport recently signed an agreement with HMSHost to open new dining options, to be completed by 2017.  The deal is said to bring new restaurants to Terminals 1 and 2 and will be done in phases spanning the next three years.  Check out the list below and see which Fort Lauderdale popular brands are staking their claim.

Five Starbucks will be added between the two terminals.  Not really Earth shattering, but consistency will be good, right?  We all roll our eyes about new Starbucks opening, but show me one that doesn’t have a line at peak hours.

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza.  This is a SMART MOVE!  Anthony’s is quite popular and it all started here in Fort Lauderdale.  Read our review for the Coral Springs location - http://ftltoday.com/anthonys-coal-fire-pizza-coral-springs-review/.

Burger-Fi.  We are still wondering what took the burger places so long to get their foot in the door here.  I’m really hoping it’s not set up like the current Miami Subs/Burger King restaurants there.  Check out our review of the Deerfield Beach location – http://ftltoday.com/burgerfi-restaurant-review/.

Shula Burger.  I’m guessing that Shula Burger will go in the opposite terminal as BurgerFi.  Upscale burgers that we hear good things about around town.

Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar.  This is definitely a step up from the Chili’s Too that is currently in the Terminals.  I can see us passing the time at the airport doing shots and eating tacos.

Offerdahl’s Café Grill.  Local spot offering breakfast bagels, sandwiches and more.  Sounds like they will be offering more due to the ‘Grill’ in the name.

Tarpon Bend Food & Tackle.  A popular local spot offering drinks and comfort food.

Sergio’s.  A local restaurant chain offering ‘healthy Latin’ inspired dishes.
