This page will list the airports I have visited to enjoy a “$300 burger”.
In most cases you will notice I didn’t even get a burger, as I prefer grilled chicken, but you get the idea.

Back in my Heyday, I would often fly somewhere in a small plane with a student, colleague, friend, business associate or even a date to enjoy what we called the “Hundred Dollar Hamburger.”
Times have changed. Rental prices have risen as well as fuel prices. A gallon of 100LL used to go for about $2, now it’s between $5 and $7.
Hence my new search, “The Three Hundred Dollar Hamburger”.
I recently started flying again after a nine year hiatus. I was greatly disappointed to find out that my favorite airport restaurants had either closed or changed so much that they were no longer attractive. KTIX used to have the “Outer Marker Cafe” which was a nice, cheap place to sit, have a sandwich and watch a shuttle launch (yes it was that long ago.) KLAL had a great Italian restaurant which is no longer the same.
