Vegas is a diner’s paradise, but the options for those leaving or arriving at the Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) are considerably more limited.

At the airport, there’s still the chance to sample from national chains, a couple of local outposts, and a decent number of airport bars. Recent additions to the airport’s dining options include sandwich chain Jersey Mike’s, a new lounge for smokers, and, randomly, a cookie dough-dispensing machine.

If you’re landing at LAS and are less than impressed with the selection, rest assured that you can be on the Strip within minutes, where good dining awaits. Until then, here’s where to dine.
