5-Hour Lay-over in O'Hare T3...Need a place to meet some (non-flying) HS Friends for a bite

Oordan | Sep 4, 2011 11:43 AM

Looking for someone familiar with the ORD terminals through which I'll be traveling this week.

I've got hopes of meeting up, during a home-bound 5-hour International flight lay-over, with a couple of old high school pals.

Since I'll likely have a couple of hours tied up in T5 (Baggage, Customs, and re-Check), I'll only have about 3 left to spend. I'm leaving from T3 there on the domestic leg.
Not really interested in going "off-campus" anywhere for lunch...just not enough time to do that AND get back through T3 Security...assuming that'll take up to an now I'm down to about 1.5 "spendable hours" with walk-time.

So, I'd like to know if there's anywhere "decent" to meet, in T3, that's accessible to the public (non-flyers) where we could meet, for an hour+ "late-lunch", such that I could comfortably get back through Security for my domestic flight home.

Thanks in advance!
