We all know Atlanta has become one of America’s culinary hotspots, but does that extend to its airport?

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has been nominated — along with 14 other airports, including John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, George Bush International Airport in Houston and Boston Logan International Airport — by Airport Revenue News as the best airport for dining as part of USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards.

USA Today says of Hartsfield-Jackson, “The airport has a robust food and beverage concessions program, with more than 149 food and beverage locations,” citing chains such as P.F. Chang’s, LongHorn Steakhouse and Carrabba’s Italian Grill, as well as local options such as The Varsity, Paschal’s, Ecco and One Flew South.

The poll is open through Feb. 13. As of Jan. 26, Hartsfield-Jackson was in eighth place. Enter your vote here.

Hartsfield-Jackson has several notable culinary heavyweights, including the recent opening of Ludacris’ Chicken+Beer, One Flew South, the only airport restaurant to be nominated for a James Beard Award and Paschal’s which has been named as the spot with the best fried chicken in Georgia.
