If you’re racing to the airport before or after the game, Proud Bird is an aviation-themed food hall just outside of LAX that’s home to six culinary kitchens. Order a half-rack of pork ribs, a pound of Barbecue Beef Brisket, or a Texas Red Hot Beef Link sandwich with mac and cheese and collard greens at Bludso’s, or chomp on fried chicken and waffles served with whipped honey butter and maple syrup. There’s also a farmers market with fresh salads and a soup of the day, burgers, and sandwiches; an Asian-American-themed stall with a Salmon Teriyaki Bowl and Orange Chicken, and an array of pizza options available, plus a special kids menu. Cap it off with a visit to the Mile High Bar, where you can order themed cocktails, wine on tap, and beer to go—happy hour is every day from 4–7 pm.

The Proud Bird opened as a single restaurant in 1967, but for its 50th anniversary in 2017 it was rearranged into a food hall with six stands offering a range of cuisines operated by Specialty Restaurants Corporation, the same company that has owned Proud Bird since its inception. The Bludso’s BBQ stand is a highlight, and there are other fun concepts like Chicken & Waffles, Burgers, and Pizza in addition to the Mile High Bar. Proud Bird also has plenty of outdoor space, a playground for kids, exhibits dedicated to the history of aviation, and a prime location next to the runway at LAX so you can watch aviation’s present takeoff and land right overhead.
