Sometimes all you want out of an airport meal is a solid burger that you can scarf down while waiting for your boarding group. That’s exactly why you should hit up Essex Burgers, a little takeout counter just next to the Chuko/Poppy’s Bagels space. The thick double-stacked patties always have a good meat-to-bread burger ratio, and make for a minimally messy gate-side meal. If you’re looking for a rich umami bomb of a sandwich, go with the butcher’s best burger that comes with a dry-aged patty topped with a mixture of sweet caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms.
