I have mentioned a time or two that I am not the biggest fan of Southwest Airlines. They do fine, but it turns out that I like my assigned seats. Who knew?However, connecting through Dallas Love Field (DAL) does have its advantages. One of those is the ability to enjoy a plate of shrimp and grits with bacon at Sky Canyon. The martini I ordered didn’t hurt either, of course, but that meal was fantastic.
The menu has a number of good choices at pretty reasonable airport prices. See the menu below for the choices:
What I went with was the shrimp and grits with bacon. Sure, anything with bacon is gonna be delicious. However, this restaurant stepped it up a notch by having decent sized chunks of pork belly.

I also ordered a perfectly nice vodka martini on the side. Next time you are stuck in an airport for a bit, see if you can redeem your time with a good meal. That worked well for me tonight.
