Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, otherwise known as ATL, is a major airport in the southeast region of the United States. ATL has a strategic metropolitan location and serves as the main hub and corporate headquarters of Delta Airlines. Amidst a populated airport, one thing is for sure: Having access to airport lounges can offer a respite from the hustle and bustle of the terminal. In this article, we'll share how to get into the lounges and restaurants in the Priority Pass™ network.

To access any space in the Priority Pass network, you'll need a membership.

What restaurants can I find at ATL airport?
Whether you're looking for a quick bite or a long cocktail, ATL airport has over 100 eateries throughout its multiple concourses. You won't have a hard time finding a cuisine you love as the options are extremely diverse. Here are some of the more popular restaurants:
- The southern-inspired "Chicken + Beer" in Concourse D
- The more casual "SweetWater Last Cast Bar & Grill" in Concourse B

The city of Atlanta is known as one of Southern history. As the birthplace of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., it has transformed the region into a true destination for art, food and culture. It also serves as the home of many corporate giants including Coca-Cola, Home Depot and UPS. It's no wonder the city also boasts one of the most important airport hubs in the world.
Due to its heavy passenger traffic, ATL recommends that you arrive at least 2 hours before any flight, but give it closer to three hours for international flights. This should allow you to get through security with enough time to arrive promptly at your gate. If you have a Priority Pass membership, you may consider arriving even earlier to enjoy the amenities before boarding the plane.
