The Varsity Drive-In in Atlanta is the tops. " What'll ya have! What'll ya have! ". Denver needs something like that.

To be honest, Varsity ain't what it was when I was in college...there's better places around. Some good stuff on Marietta St. near the convention center, and lots of good places in Decatur area (we're near there). That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for to make up our road trip.

The best resource for good "american food" while on the road that I know of is www.roadfood.com . The website focus on quality non-chain restaurants, often mom and pop places, with good and often unique menu selections. Check it out. Not only can they help you in Colorado, they're useful throughout the USA. Just about the best tip to give someone traveling in the USA.

I took a look and it looks like just what I need. I can even use the info to plan our route. I had my mom look at it, too, and she said it reminds her of when she was a kid and my granddad had a book called Duncan Hines that had local places all over. I wonder if that's the same Duncan Hines as the cake mix?

Re: Denver airport leads the charge for your phones

DrFumblefinger ·
Having traveled to Denver in the past month, I'll vouch for that fact there a lot of places to charge your devices. And there are still lots of gates that completely lack chargers, so they still have a long way to go. The free wifi at Denver is quite fast and widely available. Much appreciate! I think this should be a top priority for all airlines -- places to charge that phone and iPad before you fly. It would be good if the consumer organizations provided comparative scores.

Re: TSA: More delays, more complaints, some hope

Travel Rob ·
I was in the Atlanta airport in October and the TSA line was a mess then. I think the very fact that they have crowds before people go through security make the airports far less secure.

Re: TSA: More delays, more complaints, some hope

The overcrowding of US Airports is easily solved. Drag the minds of those who make decisions into the 21st Century. - Better late than never. If you're only making an international connection in the US - you stay in the International Departures Lounge until your onward flight is boarding. The rest of the world has been doing it for decades. And one other thing. Stop confusing making travel safe with just insulting people who are not Americans. You've had long enough to get your act together.

Re: TSA: More delays, more complaints, some hope

DrFumblefinger ·
The TSA currently charges $5.60 US for a one way trip originating in the USA, up to a max of $11.20 a trip. Given the actual time you are "serviced" by the TSA, that seems more than adequate to fund the screening process. Two problems as I see it. 1) Likely not all of this money goes to the TSA. The federal government is notorious at shifting designated monies to its pet projects, so I expect TSA money is going elsewhere. 2) The TSA tolerates terrible behavior from its employees. Many TSA...

Maybe its time to start profiling. Mom, Dad and the kids aren't a risk. Old people with walking difficulties. Same. I prefer the interview I had in the check-in line before leaving the UK. "Where is your destination in the US - Have you been before - where's the nearest Pub can you walk to - how many pubs are there - name them - what's your occupation - qualifications - name a typical job you'd do ? " And while you talk some guy is watching you closely. Whether he checks your info on his...

Re: TSA: More delays, more complaints, some hope

PHeymont ·
I think Karl has hit on a key point in his TSA comments: behavior. Long bureaucratic lines can bring out the worst in us, both on the line and running it...but the better the attitude of those running it, the fewer incidents of any kind will happen. Some of my experience of that has been as a high school assistant principal in schools where the city mandated scanning at the entrances. When the right tone is set by supervisors, the friction level is lower, and even though there is resentment...
