Border Grill Rallies Support for LAX Opening + Pink's Coming Soon to Tom Bradley International
Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger are rallying support from Border Grill enthusiasts for the opening of a third restaurant inside LAX. "Wouldn't it be great to have the delicious Mexican food of Border Grill at the Los Angeles International Airport? With a Border Margarita and a Carnitas Taco, suddenly getting to the airport two hours early isn't that bad," Milliken and Feniger wrote on their website, just above an entry form where you can write to local community leaders.
It's not easy getting a good, stiff margarita before your flight, let alone anything good at an airport kiosk. Unless, that is, you are flying out of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, where Pink's Hot Dogs will open next month. Just don't expect it to be anything like the Hollywood location, explains Tom West, Operations Manager for Pink's. Think 15-foot-long counter inside of a food court, with only about 25 percent of the original menu offered (which includes 12-13 types of hot dogs compared to about 38). And no hamburgers. But once you down enough tequilla, will it really matter?
