Heading to LA/Ontario International Airport? You might want to pack a lunch

LA/Ontario International Airport has never been a culinary hotbed, but it just got a little bit worse.

The Applebee’s in Terminal 2 (AeroMexico, Alaska/Horizon, Continental, Delta, Great Lakes and United/United Express) has closed, “temporarily.”

That narrows your food choices in that terminal down to El Paseo Cafe & Bar, Schlotzsky’s Deli and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

Our suggestion: Leave early and stop at In-N-Out on the way to the airport.
