Anyone know of any safe places to grab some grub in either the Memphis, TN or Evansville, IN airports? I've got a layover in Memphis this month, and traveling to/from Evansville.

Thanks.

I have not been through these airports, but most airports have only bottled drinks (soda, water, juice) and possibly fresh whole fruit that is gluten free. I always bring at least a meal and a half and snacks when I am traveling by air. Below are links to the airports you will be traveling through.

The Evansville airport food information link is below. Looks like only one place to buy food.

Also, please note that airport food locations generally do not have the full menu that is available at non-airport locations.

Have a good trip.

Corky's is a well known Memphis barbecue place and they have a branch in the airport. I've not had a problem with their barbecue(sans bun ;)) and a websearch for Corky's and gluten free turns up several good hits...especially that the sauce is gluten-free. I did note the pork is cooked over hickory chips and charcoal....recent posters have said gluten may be in some(?) charcoal. You could also eat what we call "pig salad" which is 'cue on a salad........very tasty!

I did have a layover in Memphis, twice, but the listing that Corky's gave me for gluten-free food - none of those items seemed to be on the menu at the airport, so I stuck with my cheese, turkey and crackers (I always freeze lunchmeat and take it out the morning of my flight). And, I called the manager of Food Operations at the airport over three weeks ago asking if they can help. Still waiting on a return phone call.

Corky's: F
Airport food concession operations: F
Steve's gluten free turkey, cheese, crackers and chips: A+

Your grades apply to most airport food concessions. I always assume there is nothing behind the securtiy gates that I can eat.

So sorry,Steve! I have had zero problems with their "wet" pork ribs.
Mempho is pretty uneducated still for celiac.....I just read their labels at Corky's and it vets out for me.
