1. Tortas Frontera
Renowned Chicago chef Rick Bayless gives travelers the best reason to get to O’Hare early with this tortas spot. Available in three different terminals, his griddle-baked Mexican sandwiches are loaded with fillings like smoked pork, chipotle-roasted chicken and chorizo. Early risers also have breakfast options to choose from. And we won’t judge if you decide to start your vacation at the airport with a morning marg or Cruz Blanca draft beer. Pro tip: Skip the line by ordering ahead on the Tortas Frontera app.
