The best part of the mall is obviously the food court. Yes, you came to the mall to shop, but don’t try to say you weren’t planning the whole excursion around where you were going to stop for coffee and where you were going to get lunch. A good food court can make or break your decision to go to a certain mall. You want to go to one that has the food options you want, and you never want to settle.
Food courts are home to chains that provide comfort, fast service, and tasty food. Sure, there are tons of fast food options like McDonald’s, Chipotle, and Panda Express at most malls, but the best ones have tons of different kinds of cuisine and even dine-in options that range from casual to fancy. Whether you’re hitting up a Starbucks or a Bar Louie, you know which mall has it and which mall doesn’t.
