Foursquare Tips

  • The best thing to come to O'Hare since planes.
  • They have redefined "airport" food. Rick Bayless didn't sell out like Wolfgang down the terminal. Same quality of food you would get at one of his restaurants. An O'hare must.
  • Laugh at the ppl in line next to you at macdonalds - then eat you food from frontera staring at them
  • Totally worth the wait, eat here if you can! Best airport food I've had.
  • Rick Bayless' Mexican cuisine features griddle-baked tortas filled with chipotle chicken, beer-braised beef short ribs and pork chorizo. Also enjoy molletes, soups and salads and a guacamole bar.
  • There are power outlets along the window bar
  • Sit at the bar and order from there. Plenty of outlets to charge up electronic devices located in both the sitting and standing areas.
  • The guacamole is amazing! And thy have like 40 outlets in the wall. My kind of airport joint.
  • If you've got 10 minutes to spare, grab a torta made with all fresh and local ingredients. Best sandwich I've had in an airport by far.
  • Best airport breakfast in America. Unreal.
  • Tortas are definitely worth the wait! All fresh ingredients, yum! :)
  • Great chorizo and egg breakfast torta. Green salsa is excellent.
  • The cochinita pibil torta was amazing. Also try their delicious agua de limon (classic lime).
  • Make sure you fly out of Terminal 3 at O'Hare when leaving Chicago so you can eat here. Chipotle chicken torta is awesome - like so awesome that you would eat this even if you weren't at the airport.
  • OMG you can get a to go drink! It comes in a cup with a lid... Yahoo!!!! Rick please open at the Seattle Airport!!!
