Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill
Welcome to the poor man's Cabo Wabo Cantina, which is really saying something. "Sammy" refers to Sammy Hagar, who has attached his name to this airport hangout in just one of the rock star's many business ventures. The decor resembles a beachside surf shop, while the menu sticks to burgers and bar food. If you're feeling adventurous, try the spicy Red Rockin' Wings or the Island Burger combo of beef and pork. The lineup of sipping rums is a welcome touch but surprisingly, no Cabo Wabo among the tequila options.
Ethel M Chocolates
Finally, something local at the airport to sink your teeth into. Ethel M Chocolates are made in a Henderson factory and are a welcome alternative to generic candy bars at the newsstand. This is basically a gift shop. Mix and match your own individual pieces from a display window or grab a prepackaged variety box. Ethel M can also be found in Concourses D and E.
Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen
If your definition of "fresh" consists of a personal pan pizza kept warm under a heat lamp, this spot is calling your name. The meatballs and tomato sauce have a subtle "high school cafeteria" appeal. Avoid the margarita chicken panini at all costs.
Pei Wei Asian Diner
This is as fresh and as hot as airport food gets. Most of the dishes are made to order, which is a rarity, but the lines get long quickly. If you have time to kill, the wok-tossed spicy chicken and fried rice is the way to go. The prepackaged sushi feels like a risk. A second Pei Wei is waiting for international travelers in Concourse E.
