The worst food you ever ate. Airport food before the 90s - and often during - was served by institutional vendors who did things in bulk. Dry hamburgers, cold soggy fries, brackish coffee. Horrid stuff. People under 25 have no idea how good they have it, and frankly the long security lines and invasive patdowns are a fair trade. If it's a choice of taking my shoes and belt off or going back to Host Restaurants, I'll take the former every time.
