Once you get through the security checkpoints, there are several more diners, cafes, bars, and more to be found in the Airside part of Orlando International Airport. Here are some examples.
-On The Border - Airside 1, Gates 1-29
Open from 7am through to 9pm, On The Border is a great place to grab a snack or enjoy a lengthier meal with all the family while waiting for your flight. This is a Mexican Grill and Cantina location with some delicious Mexican-style dishes being served up all through the day, so if you're in the mood for something spicy, be sure to stop off here.
-Cold Stone Creamery - Food Court, Gates 1-29
If you're in the mood for something sweet and sugary, Cold Stone Creamery in the Airside Food Court is the place to be. You'll find a huge range of sweet treats here including ice cream, cakes, yogurts, sorbets, and more. If you're feeling nervous about the flight or are traveling with kids, there's nothing more comforting than a big bowl of delicious Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, covered in sprinkles and other fun toppings.
-Green Leaf's - Airside 2, Gates 100-129
Over at Airside 2, Green Leaf's can be found. Friendly staff will be waiting to greet you here any time from 5 in the morning through to 9 in the evenings. Green Leaf's, for the uninitiated, is all about healthy, delicious food. You'll find a nice range of salads here with some super dressings and ingredients, but you can also grab wraps, sandwiches, frozen yogurt, smoothies, and more.
-Ruby Tuesday - Airside 3, Gates 30-59
If your flight is leaving from the Airside 3 area of Orlando International Airport, you'll find a few great dining options to choose from. There's a Wendy's in this part of the airport and a Manchu Wok, but Ruby Tuesday takes our vote as the best location in the area for its excellent steaks, burgers, desserts, and appetizers. It's the ideal location to spend an hour or so while waiting for your flight.
-Nathan's - Airside 4, Gates 70-99
Finally, we come to Airside 4, where you can find a nice range of dining options including an Outback and a Tacos Locos, but the Nathan's is definitely one of the top options here. Often, when traveling at an airport, people just want to eat something quick, easy, and highly satisfying, and that's what Nathan's can provide. There are some super burgers and hot dogs here, and the staff are always friendly too.
