Bonus For Visiting Denver: The Airport's Food Rocks

Number 8 out of 74 on the Thrillist national list? Not bad, DIA.

A trip to good ole Denver International Airport is not likely at the top of anyone's list of favorite things to do, but the folks at Thrillist argue that this thinking may be a bit privileged. After ranking "every important American airport" (all 74 of them), DIA landed at number eight. Top Ten in dining ain't too shabby for an airport rumored to have a whole slew of extra-curricular activities going on.

Among the worst airports in terms dining options are Bozeman, MT and Des Moines, IA. One would think that national dining outlets and airports would come together to place more emphasis on engaging the hungry, traveling audience within their doors, but unfortunately for non-Denverites, not every city boasts restaurants as savvy and capable as Elway's and Root Down.
