Getting Around the Atlanta Airport ATL

Where and what can you eat in the Atlanta Airport?

Chicken & Beer

This is a chicken and waffles joint. And it’s good. They got other stuff too. But if you want to try chicken and waffles (an Atlanta area specialty) this is the place. And it’s in the airport!
They got drinks as well. That’s why they got beer in their name. But you’ll like the food. And if this is your first time eating Southern food you’ll be glad you tried it here.

Carry-Ons

We have listed the major airlines and their carry-on bag requirements below. It’s always a good idea to actually check with the airline by looking at their website or calling their customer service. However, you will want want to find the requirements for carry-on luggage, measure your bag, weigh your bag and then pack it. This can save you time and money. Money savings is from airlines who are now often charging extra fees when you board your aircraft.
