What Our Customers Say About DFW

All About DFW Airport

Dallas Fort Worth Airport Guide

DFW's diverse marketplaces and restaurants

Most visitors to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport consider the food choices to be one of the best things about this airport. DFW has a grand total of 99 restaurants and cafes throughout its five terminals, and you'll get to know some of them better a little later. There are also 87 different shops among the terminals with everything from newspapers to clothes, toiletries, candy and even sports memorabilia to choose from. You should make sure to have a little extra room in your carry-on for some of the great bargains you'll find.

Big, loud and full of lines

One of this airport's greatest strengths is also a top target of the airport's critics. DFW is enormous, and you may have some difficulty if you need to change terminals. Another problem many visitors have is the constant construction in terminals A, B and E. The renovations can make for a noisy wait in line, and those are considered the biggest problem of all. If you're going out of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, then be sure to arrive at least two hours early, or you'll have to wait in line to enter your terminal, three of which are used by American Airlines.

Yoga, massages and other fun things

If you need to relax for a minute between flights, then you should head to the DFW Yoga Studio, which can be found near gate D40. This studio holds regular sessions several times a day and offers exercises for all skill levels. You can also get a quick neck or back massage at the XPresSpa, which is found near gates D20 and D24. It's the perfect place to go if you need to get a quick dose of relaxation before your long flight out of town.

If you don't need to relax before heading up, there are plenty of other things to enjoy, many of which are in terminal D. Over at gate D18, you'll find the Terminal D theaters, which offer 10 big screens showing CNN, TBS or Turner Classic Movies. Just pick your screen and sit back while you wait for your flight. DFW also has a barbershop near gate C17 where you can get a nice shave, haircut or even a shoeshine. Needless to say, walk-ins are always welcome.

More about DFW's restaurants

The 99 restaurants offer every cuisine imaginable from Texas BBQ to steaks and fast food. If you have the time to spare, check out the III Forks Prime Steakhouse on Terminal D's upper level near gate D27. They offer some of the finest beef and seafood that you can find, and they're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you're looking for local flavor, try The Salt Lick Bar-B-Que near gate A16. They offer real Texas barbeque such as beef brisket with all the trimmings that go with it, such as ranch beans and coleslaw. You can also get a drink at the Texas Stadium Skybox, which offers the finest beers available and a place where you can watch the game before you head off.

A few other things you should know

Dallas/Fort Worth International has several currency exchanges in terminals D and E at the Travelex stands. Two of these stands also offer duty-free shopping if you're coming here from overseas. You'll also find that it's pretty easy to get from one terminal to another with the Sky Link rail system. These get you to any terminal within 5-10 minutes, and new trains arrive at the five stations every two minutes. If you need your phone charged, there are over a dozen charging stations throughout the five terminals, and they're all conveniently placed. Finally, the whole airport offers long distance broadband and free Wi-Fi whenever you need it.
